If interested in wagering on these proposition plays, or any other plays for this fight card, you may do so at Several Bookmakerss. My props for Bellator 129 are: Welterweight bout: Josh Neer (-145) vs Paul Bradley (+125) Fight Goes to Decision (-160) 1.6u to win 1u Bradley by Decision (+215) 1u to win 2.15u I think Bradley’s wrestling is going to prove to be the difference in this match-up. I don’t think Neer will be able to continuously stop his takedown attempts, so unless he is able to secure a guillotine choke during one of Bradley’s attempts, I feel he is going to lose a decision here. I see “The Gentleman” taking Neer down, avoiding his submission attempts and grinding out a unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards. I think this 170-pound scrap will make its way to the judges’ scorecards more often than not, and I see Bradley doing enough to pick up the decision the majority, if not all the time. I favor this fight to reach the judges’ scorecards, where “The Gentleman” gets the nod. Light Heavyweight bout: Houston Alexander (+105) vs Virgin Zwicker (-125) Fight Goes to Decision (+350) 1u to win 3.5u Alexander by Decision (+615) 1u to win 6.15u I think the chances of this fight reaching the judges’ scorecards are greater than the betting odds currently indicate. I feel there is a decent chance that Alexander wins this fight via decision, so I see a good amount of value in these props. Welterweight bout: Andre Santos (-155) vs James Terry (+135) Fight Doesn’t Go to Decision (-155) 1.55u to win 1u Santos ITD (+120) .5u to win .6u This is a battle between a pair of finishers who own a combined 35 finishes in 42 professional fights, and I see this one adding to one of their records. I feel this fight will end inside the distance more often than not, and I think Santos has a greater chance of finishing the fight than Terry does. I expect the Brazilian to finish this fight via submission. By no means will I be surprised to see Terry score the finish, which is why I have more confidence in the fight ending inside of three rounds than I do in Santos being the one to earn the stoppage.
