Bellator 107 Opening Betting Odds

Cheick-Kongo MMA oddsmaker Nick Kalikas today opened the complete betting lines for the Bellator 107 card at Several Bookmakers, and here they are below. ———————– BELLATOR 107: KONGO vs. GRAHAM November 8, 2013 – Winstar World Casino, Thackerville, Oklahoma ——————– MAIN CARD Cheick Kongo -140 (Heavyweight tournament final) Peter Graham +100 Joe Warren -210 (Bantamweight tournament final) Travis Marx +160 Mikkel Parlo -175 (Middleweight tournament final) Brennan Ward +135 Derek Campos -245 (Non-tournament lightweight bout) Martin Stapleton +175 ——————– PRELIMINARY CARD Patricky Freire -505 (Non-tournament lightweight bout) Edson Berto +335 ——————– Adam’s thoughts: In the main event of the evening, Cheick Kongo takes on Peter Graham in the Bellator season nine heavyweight tournament final. At first I was thinking this was a good spot to fade Kongo’s declining chin against a powerful striker like Graham, but the more I thought about it the more I think Kongo can push Graham up against the fence and grind it out. In the co-main event of the evening, former Bellator featherweight champion Joe Warren takes on Travis Marx in the final of the season nine bantamweight tournament. I really like Warren’s wrestling but at this point of his career his chin is a real concern and it’s hard to confidently back him against a tough and talented fighter like Marx. At +160, I’m thinking about taking a stab at Marx, but I’ll wait and see if the line on him gets better if the public comes in on Warren. And in the season nine middleweight tournament final, Mikkel Parlo takes on Brennan Ward. I think this is a tough fight to call, but I’d definitely have to favor Parlo due to his striking advantage. However, Ward has really impressed me during his run in the middleweight tournament, and I wouldn’t sleep on him in this particular matchup.
