Five Crazy TUF Brazil 3 Finale Prop Bets That Cashed Big

Stipe-Miocic Five crazy prop bets is a column featured on after every UFC event that highlights the biggest underdog prop bets to cash out from that card Here’s five crazy TUF Brazil 3 Finale bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers. Stipe Miocic wins in round one (+250) In the main event of the TUF Brazil 3 Finale, Stipe Miocic became to first man to stop Fabio Maldonado with strikes as he finished the loveable Brazilian early in the first round with punches. This was a solid performance by Miocic over a smaller opponent, as expected, but even still the props on Miocic finishing a light heavyweight went undervalued including the prop on Miocic wins in round one, which cashed at a cool +250. Antonio Carlos Junior wins by decision (+288) In the co-main event of the evening, which also served as the TUF Brazil 3 heavyweight finale, Antonio Carlos Junior defeated Vitor Miranda via unanimous decision. Most figured the fight would be finished inside of three rounds so the prop on Carlos Junior by decision was undervalued at +288. Nice job if you bet it. Robbie Peralta wins by decision (+525) In a featherweight bout, Robbie Peralta and Rony Jason fought valiantly for 15 minutes but at the end of three rounds it was Peralta who took the split decision victory. It was a close fight that realistically could have gone either way, but Peralta definitely had value as a dog and the prop on him winning by decision cashed at a tidy +525. Gasan Umalatov wins by decision (+350) In a welterweight battle, Gasan Umalatov upset Paulo Thiago in his home country via unanimous decision. It’s not that Umalatov looked good, per se, but Thiago looked next to terrible and likely will be released from the Octagon. Still, Umalatov won and anyone who bet the prop on him winning a decision at +350 made out like a bandit. Kevin Souza vs. Mark Eddiva wins FOTN (+1300) And in the best fight of the night, Kevin Souza and Mark Eddiva battled for nearly 10-straight minutes before referee Herb Dean mercifully rescued Eddiva with just 10 seconds to go in the second round and Souza won by T/KO. Still, this was a barnburner of a fight and both men received a nice $50,000 bonus award for Fight of the Night for their efforts. And anyone who bet on this winning FOTN cashed out big, too, as the prop was +1300 for this to be the best fight of the TUF Brazil 3 Finale.
