Maiquel-FalcaoBellator 133 Date: February 13, 2015 Arena: Save Mart Center City: Fresno, CA Bellator 132 will be live on Spike TV tonight at 9pm ET with a four-fight main card, with an eight-fight preliminary card to precede it on Spike.com at 6:45pm ET. If interested in wagering on these proposition plays, or any other plays for this fight card, you may do so at 5Dimes Sportsbooks. My prop plays for Bellator 133 are: Middleweight bout: Alexander Shlemenko (-240) vs Melvin Manhoef (+220) Fight Goes to Decision (+425) .4u to win 1.7u The popular opinion here is that this fight will end early, and I am on board with it, as my prediction is for Manhoef to score an early knockout of Shlemenko. That said, if this fight makes it out of the first round, I think it has a decent chance of going the distance. I don’t think Shlemenko is a brutal finisher, and I think his best chance of putting Manhoef away would be if Manhoef badly gasses. If the fight makes it out of the first, I think it’s a toss-up whether Manhoef will completely gas or manage to hang in there until the final bell. At +425, I think it’s worth a stab. Featherweight bout: Daniel Weichel (+210) vs Pat Curran (-230) Weichel +3.5 (-165) 1.65u to win 1u If the German loses is bout, I think it will most likely come on the judges’ scorecards, where I believe he will have done to win at least one round. This fight could come down to a split decision, but regardless of how it ends, I do favor Weichel to upset the former Bellator featherweight champion tonight in Fresno. Welterweight bout: Chris Honeycutt (-925) vs Andrew MacFarlane (+725) Honeycutt -3.5 (-375) 1.87u to win .5 I’m on board with everybody else and in agreement with this betting line about this fight being all Chris Honeycutt. If he does not earn the stoppage, he will win every round to pick up a unanimous decision victory on the judges’ scorecards.
