If interested in making this parlay, or any other wagers for this fight card, you will be able to do so at Several Bookmakerss. Here’s my parlay for Legacy FC 36: Flyweight title bout: Brian Hall (+190) vs Damacio Page (-270) Gabe’s Thoughts: Page is 2-0 at 125-pounds and I expect him to extend that streak to three in a row tonight against Hall. Aside from having the obvious edge in experience, I believe Page is the superior fighter heading into this flyweight scrap. I think he has the edge on the feet, as well as on the mat. I see him getting the better of Hall in the stand-up, and possibly implementing some takedowns of his own. Unless Hall manages to score some sort of finish in the first round of action, I think Page will defeat him either via T/KO or rear naked choke submission in the third round of action, if not go on to win a clear cut decision on the judges’ scorecards. I think this is Page’s fight to lose and a good spot for him to pick up another W at 125-pounds, likely earning himself a call from Sean Shelby to return to the UFC, which did not have a flyweight division the last time he competed in the promotion. At the current betting line of -270, I feel there is enough value in Page to include him as the first leg to my two-way parlay for Legacy FC 36, as I personally think he should be a -360 favorite in this contest. Gabe’s Call: Page by Submission (rear naked choke, 3:02 round 3) Flyweight bout: Jordan Espinosa (+365) vs Rafael de Freitas (-555) Gabe’s Thoughts: Simply put, I expect the Brazilian to make quick of Espinosa in this bout. He does not have good cardio and is coming off a long layoff, which are two factors that would usually scare me, but my confidence in him making quick work of Espinosa outweighs those concerns. This fight will hit the mat sooner than later, where it will only be a matter of time before de Freitas secures a submission, regardless of whether he is in top position or put on his back. I believe the Brazilian is a very solid prospect at 125-pounds, and with improvements in his striking and conditioning, I feel he will be a future contender in the UFC’s flyweight division. Even at the current heavily-juiced line of -555, I think there is plenty of value in the Brazilian to include him in my parlay or this card, as I personally think he should be -1500. If not for the extended layoff, I would have said -2500. Gabe’s Call: de Freitas by Submission (rear naked choke, 1:04 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Page (-270) parlayed with de Freitas (-555) for -165 4.85u to win 2.95u
