Here’s my two-way parlay for RFA 24: Welterweight title bout: Ben Smith (-175) vs Tat Romero (+135) Gabe’s Thoughts: At the current betting odds, I think Smith is the right side for a wager. I would have made a play on Romero if he opened at +250, but at +135 I think the value is with his opponent. Smith may find himself in some early trouble but I think he will tough it out and get through it. He is, in my opinion, the superior mixed martial artist in this match-up. Romero will have the hometown edge, and an edge in power, but I think Smith is the better fighter. He trains out of a better camp, and although they are both up there in age, I think Smith has the brighter future in the sport. Romero certainly has a lot more wear-and-tear than he does. I could see Smith getting a late finish, but I favor this fight to hit the judges’ scorecards, where Smith takes home a unanimous nod. Gabe’s Call: Smith by Unanimous Decision (49-46, 49-46, 49-46) Bantamweight bout: Melvin Blumer (-115) vs Jeff Curran (-125) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think Curran should be a -200 favorite heading into this match-up and see value in him at his current betting price of -125. I believe he is the more skilled and durable fighter in this contest. I think he has a better chance of finishing the fight than Blumer does, and I also think he has a better chance of winning the fight on the judges’ scorecards. I don’t see Blumer knocking Curran out or submitting him. There is a chance he could win a decision, but his betting price of -115, I could not justify a play. I don’t see Curran knocking Blumer out, either, but I can very well see him submitting him. Again, if it hits the scorecards, I favor Curran, so at -125 I like him for the second leg for my two-way parlay. Gabe’s Call: Curran by Submission(rear naked choke, 4:39 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Parlays: Smith (-175) parlayed with Curran (-125) at +182 for 1.4u to win 2.56u
