Gabe Killian’s Plays for Cage 26 in Finland

CAGE_26Cage 26 will be taking place in Finland on Saturday afternoon. While there will be no live stream broadcast of the event, the fights are available for wagering at Several Bookmakerss. Here are my plays for the card… Bantamweight bout: Timo-Juhani Hirvikangas (-165) vs Tymoteusz Swiatek (+125) Gabe’s Prediction: Hirvikangas is the tougher, not to mention more well-rounded mixed martial artist. I think he will threaten Swiatek on the mat in this bout, ultimately earning a submission finish. I feel as though he should be a bigger favorite and is being undervalued in this spot, so I will be making a move on him. Gabe’s Call: Hirvikangas by Submission (heel hook, 1:32 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Hirvikangas (-165) 3.96u to win 2.4u Lightweight bout: Juha-Pekka Vainikainen (-505) vs Nordin Asrih (+335) Gabe’s Prediction: I think this fight will be closer than the odds suggest. While Vainikainen should get his hand raised more often than not, I think Asrih has a decent chance of beating him. I think he could win via submission or decision. Vainikainen has holes in his defensive grappling, while Asrih has a good submission game, so I could certainly see him earning the tap. Gabe’s Call: Vainikainen by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Asrih (+335) 1u to win 3.35u Featherweight bout: Makan Amirkhani (-505) vs Yohann Guerin (+335) Gabe’s Prediction: Simply put, I think Amirkhani is going to have his way with Guerin every which way possible, and earn an easy victory. Gabe’s Call: Amirkhani by Submission (rear naked choke, 2:21 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Amirkhani (-505) parlayed with Packalen (-505) for -230 3.45u to win 1.5u Lightweight bout: Teemu Packalen (-505) vs Sebastian Fournier (+335) Gabe’s Prediction: This should be another fight on the card that results in an easy victory. I think it will be a one-sided fight that ultimately ends with Packalen getting his hand raised. Gabe’s Call: Packalen by Submission (guillotine choke, 0:49 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Packalen (-505) parlayed with Amirkhani (-505) for -230 3.45u to win 1.5u
