Five Crazy WSOF 14 Prop Bets That Cashed Big

Smealinho-Rama-WSOF Five crazy prop bets is a column featured on after every major MMA event that highlights the biggest underdog prop bets to cash out from that card. Here’s five crazy WSOF 14 bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers. Jake Shields wins by submission (+160) In the main event of the evening, Jake Shields was able to submit Ryan Ford in the first round with a rear-naked choke to claim the next WSOF welterweight title shot. Anyone who did their homework on this fight would have seen that Ford had lost three previous times in his career by submission so this prop on Shields winning by submission was undervalued as it was probably Shields’ clearest path to victory. The prop on Shields to win by tapout cashed at +160. Nice job anyone who bet that. Jake Shields wins in round 1 (+325) In addition to the Shields wins by submission prop winning, the prop on Shields wins in round 1 also cashed. This one was even bigger, too — +325 was the return on Shields winning inside the first round, something he had not done in five years. Congrats to anyone who took a stab. Shields vs. Ford does NOT start round 2 (+247) And finally, there was also a prop on the Ford vs. Shields main event NOT starting the second round, which cashed at +247. This was a really good bet for anyone who made it, because there was a decent chance this fight was going to end in the first stanza — in hindsight, it’s one prop I wished I looked at closer. Smealinho Rama wins inside the distance (+172) In a heavyweight title bout, Smealinho Rama knocked out Derrick Mehmen in brutal fashion en route to claiming the inaugural WSOF heavyweight championship. Rama came out guns a’ blazing in the first round, rocking Mehmen and dropping him to the canvas, and then following it up with another knockdown quickly afterwards that forced the referee to stop the fight. Rama looked fast in the fight, and I believe he has a bright future in the sport. Rama was an underdog in this fight, and the prop on him winning inside the distance was available at +172. Nice job to anyone who bet that. Chris Horodecki wins by decision (+180) In a featherweight bout, Luis Huete was taken down repeatedly by Chris Horodecki for three-straight rounds en route to a clear-cut unanimous decision defeat. Horodecki wasn’t exactly impressive in victory, but he did what he needed to do and came away with a solid win. Horodecki won the fight by decision, and the prop cashed at +180, a nice hit for anyone who bet it.
