MMA Odds and Ends for Wednesday: TUF Nations Finale Prop Bets To Consider

KJ Noons The TUF Nations Finale goes down this afternoon in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, and for today’s MMA Odds and Ends I’ve combed through the list of props available at Several Bookmakers and have selected five which I think will hit. By the way, I selected five prop bets last week for UFC Fight Night 39 and went 4-0 with one push, so hopefully you tailed on those. Kyle Noke vs. Patrick Cote goes to decision (-130) The co-main event of the TUF Nations Finale is the battle of TUF coaches as Team Australia’s Kyle Noke takes on Patrick Cote of Team Canada. This is a competitive fight on paper and I expect it to play out that way in the cage as I expect a back-and-forth brawl between these two welterweights that goes the full three rounds. And at only -130, I see value in the prop on the fight going to decision. Dustin Poirier vs. Akira Corassani UNDER 2.5 rounds (-170) In the opening main card bout, Dustin Poirier takes on Akira Corassani in what is a huge mismatch on paper and one that will likely be a mismatch when these fighters step into the Octagon. I fully expect Poirier to finish the fight via stoppage but if Corassani wins then it will likely be by a shock stoppage as well. So at only -170, I really like the UNDER 2.5 rounds total here and I think it’s a winner. KJ Noons vs. Sam Stout goes to decision (-255) A welterweight contest between KJ Noons and Sam Stout should be an exciting back-and-forth battle between two strikers in dire need of a win, and it’s a fight I definitely think makes it the full three rounds. The prop on this fight going to decision is -255 and I it makes a good parlay key as both of these fighters more often than not go to decision and I think this prop should be priced closer to 3-to-1 so I do see some slight value. George Roop vs. Dustin Kimura UNDER 2.5 rounds (-125) In a bantamweight affair, George Roop takes on Dustin Kimura in a matchup that is not likely at all to go the full three rounds. Both these guys are finishers and both of them have defensive flaws as well, so I definitely think this fight goes UNDER 2.5 rounds and at -125 I see good value in the total. Tim Gorman vs. Mitch Gagnon doesn’t go to decision (-325) And finally, in the very first of the night, Tim Gorman takes on Mitch Gagnon in a bantamweight bout that is not likely at all to go the full three rounds as both men have kill-or-be-killed attitudes. I expect Gagnon to latch in his signature guillotine choke in this one, but it wouldn’t shock me if Gorman knocked him out. Although this prop is juiced up at -325, I still definitely think it’s a nice parlay piece.
