Gabe Killian’s Parlay for UFC Fight Night 37

Brad ScottUFC Fight Night 37 Date: March 8, 2014 Arena: O2 Arena City: London, England UFC Fight Night 37 will be live on UFC Fight Pass, with the preliminary card kicking off at 12:30pm ET, and the main card getting going at 3:00pm ET. If interested in wagering on my recommended parlays, or any other plays, these fight lines will be made available to you at Several Bookmakerss. These are the match-ups I will be parlaying: Welterweight bout: Gunnar Nelson (-335) vs Omari Akhmedov (+275) Fight Prediction: Nelson will use his strikes to set up a takedown, and once the fight hits the mat, he will his use superior grappling to make transitions and submission attempts. I think Nelson can best Akhmedov on the feet, as well as on the mat. I’m not certain he will be able to tap Akhmedov, but I do believe he can control him with his top game. I think Nelson is better everywhere and if he doesn’t earn the finish, he should take home the decision on the judges’ scorecards. Gabe’s Pick: Gunnar Nelson by Submission (arm-triangle choke, 3:23 round 2) Middleweight bout: Brad Scott (-185) vs Claudio Henrique Da Silva (+160) Fight Prediction: The Brit looks to make it two in a row inside the Octagon, as he gets set to take on the Brazilian newcomer. I think Scott holds the advantages in strength, striking, wrestling, and most importantly, cardio. He is well-conditioned, especially at 185 pounds, and I cannot say the same for his opponent. While Da Silva does not badly gas, he does tend to visibly fade as the fight progresses. I think his only route to victory in this bout is to catch Scott in a submission, and I don’t see that happening. I could, however, see the Brit submitting the Brazilian. I could also see him ending the fight via strikes, but more often than not, I think Scott batters Da Silva on the feet and against the cage, while mixing in takedowns and beating him up on the mat, en route to a unanimous decision victory. Gabe’s Pick: Brad Scott by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Flyweight bout: Louis “Goodnight” Gaudinot (-165) vs Phil Harris (+145) Fight Prediction:I don’t think Harris has much left to offer, and am afraid he is on a decline and not UFC caliber at this point in his professional mixed martial arts career. Gaudinot is coming off a lengthy layoff, so as long as he does not suffer from ring rust, I expect him to be too fast and too tough for the Brit. I think Gaudinot will get the better of Harris everywhere, but I expect this fight to play out on the feet. I could see “Goodnight” living up to his nickname, be it via strikes or submission, but if he fails to score the finish, I think he will manage to do enough to get the upset in front of the London crowd in the opening bout of the fight card. Gabe’s Pick: Louis “Goodnight” Gaudinot by Submission (rear naked choke, 3:39 round 3) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Nelson (-310) parlayed with Gaudinot (-165) and Scott (-185) for +221 4.05u to win 8.95u
