houston-alexander-virgil-zwicker-bellator-129 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 are five crazy Bellator 129 bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers. Paul Bradley wins by decision (+141) The main event of Bellator 129 was a very boring three-round decision win for Paul Bradley over Josh Neer. The welterweight matchup took place almost exclusively on the mat, with Bradley on top beating up Neer with some ground and pound and doing some lay and praying. Regardless, Bradley won by decision, and as such the prop on him winning by that method cashed at +141. Virgil Zwicker vs. Houston Alexander is a draw (+12500) A heavyweight bout between Virgil Zwicker and Houston Alexander was marred by multiple headbutts by Alexander, which resulted in a point deduction. Two of the judges felt like Alexander won 10-9 in two rounds and Zwicker won 10-9 in one round, and with the point taken away that resulted in a majority draw. A draw is rare in MMA, and as such the odds on this fight ending that way were astronomical at +12500. If anyone bet this prop, congratulations on your big payday. Andre Santos wins by decision (+250) In a welterweight bout, Andre Santos used his striking to edge out James Terry. This was a very close fight that could have gone either way, but the judges felt Santos did enough to win in their eyes. The prop on Santo wins by decision cashed at +250, a nice pickup for anyone who had the foresight to see him winning on the cards. Andre Santos -3.5 points handicap (+150) Although the fight was a lot closer than what the judges had, Santos was still rewarded with a clean sweep, 30-27 on all cards win, and that meant that the -3.5 points handicap cashed at +150. Personally I felt this was the wrong side since I thought the fight was 29-28 Santos, but still, nice job to anyone who bet this. Joe Vedepo wins inside the distance (+178) And in the opening bout of the main card, Joe Vedepo took out Davin Clark in the third round via TKO. It sure looked like Vedepo was going to win a decision, but he got a dominant position late in the fight and was able to use it to his advantage and score the stoppage. And when he finished the fight, the prop on Vedepo winning inside the distance cashed at +178.
