Gabe Killian’s Three-Way Parlay for UFC Fight Night40

Eddie WinelandUFC Fight Night 40 Date: May 10, 2014 Arena: US Bank Arena City: Cincinnati, OH UFC Fight Night 40 will be live tonight with a 13-fight card from Cincinnati, OH. If interested in wagering on these fights, or any others on this fight card, these lines will be made available to you at Several Bookmakerss. Here’s my three-way parlay for this card… Welterweight bout: Yan Cabral (-430) vs Zak Cummings (+380) Gabe’s Prediction: Cummings is a well-rounded mixed martial artist who can be dangerous anywhere, but I think Cabral is better than him everywhere, especially in the submission department. He has been focusing on his striking for this bout, and that could prove to be a recipe for disaster if he ends up getting caught, as Cummings packs power, but I don’t see that happening. Rather, I see Cabral outpointing Cummings and mixing in takedowns to secure rounds. Gabe’s Call: Cabral by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 30-27, 30-27) Bantamweight bout: Eddie Wineland (-650) vs Johnny Eduardo (+535) Gabe’s Prediction: Eduardo is taking this fight after a two year layoff, and I see it being a tough one to win, as he is fighting the arguably best opposition he has yet to face in the bantamweight division in his professional mixed martial arts career. Both fighters are tough to finish, but both also hit hard, so I could see a finish coming on either end. That said, I expect Wineland’s footwork and superior boxing to be the difference in this bout. I see him outstriking the Brazilian for all three rounds of action to take home a unanimous nod from the judges. I feel this match-up would be a lot more closely contested if Eduardo was not coming off a two year absence from the cage. Gabe’s Call: Wineland by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Welterweight bout: Neil Magny (+225) vs Tim Means (-245) Gabe’s Prediction: Magny’s only, or rather- best shot at winning this fight is by holding Means against the cage for a majority of the fight while mixing in takedowns. If he does find success with takedowns, I think Means will be able to work his way back to his feet. I don’t think Magny’s wrestling is good enough to keep Means down, but I’m not overly confident in that feeling. I think Magny will push the face on the feet, but Means will beat him with his counters. I see Means dropping Magny with a counter hook for a knockout win, but if that doesn’t happen, I think he takes home a decision that doesn’t leave a question in the minds of the judges. After going 2-2 in his first stint in the Octagon, Means was released from the promotion, and after finding success in Legacy FC and capturing their welterweight gold, he has received another shot in the big show. Last time he was fighting at lightweight, and this time around he will be competing in the welterweight division. Though, I would not be surprised to see him drop back down to 155 pounds. Perhaps not after a win, it may take a loss to get him to make the move. Gabe’s Call: Means by KO (punch, 1:34, round 2) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Cabral (-430) parlayed with Wineland (-650) and Means (-245) for +100 2u to win 2u
