Two-Way Parlay for UFC 185 in Dallas

Ross-pearsonUFC 185 Date: 03/14/15 Arena: American Airlines Center City: Dallas, TX The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Dallas, TX on March 14th with UFC 185, featuring an action-packed fight card that includes two championship bouts. The main card gets underway at 10pm ET on Pay Per View, with preliminary action getting going on FOX Sports 1 at 8pm and UFC Fight Pass at 6:30pm before that. If interested in making this parlay, or any other wagers for this UFC fight card, you will be able to do so at Several Bookmakerss. Here’s my two-way parlay for UFC 185: Welterweight title bout: Johny Hendricks (-350) vs Matt Brown (+290) Gabe’s Thoughts: If this fight hits the judges’ scorecards, I think Hendricks has a greater chance of taking the decision. Should there be a finish in the fight, I think more than likely it will be Hendricks scoring it. Simply put, I give “Bigg Rigg” the edge everywhere in this match-up. I think he will get the better of Brown on the feet, as well as on the mat. One way or another, I see Hendricks getting his hand raised and setting himself up for a fight against the winner up the upcoming Lawler vs MacDonald title bout. Gabe’s Call: Hendricks by T/KO (punches, 1:02 round 1) Lightweight bout: Ross Pearson (-350) vs Sam Stout (+290) Gabe’s Thoughts: I like Pearson to win this match-up, but I think he is being overvalued at his current betting price of -350, which is why I am not making a play on him. On the same note, I don’t see enough value in his opponent Stout at +290 to pull the trigger there, either. I believe the value in this fight lies in the total, and the over. The line is currently at -165, and I think it should be -230. The reason it is so low is because both fighters are coming off T/KO defeats in their latest outings. Despite that fact, they both generally have solid chins, so unless one of theirs has gone completely shot, which I doubt, then I think these two duke it out for all three rounds of action more often than not. They are both known to be tough and durable, able to trade and take damage. I see Pearson being the more technically sound striker in this bout and outpointing the Canadian on the feet over the course of 15-minutes to pick up a unanimous decision victory on the judges’ scorecards. Gabe’s Call: Pearson by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Gabe’s Recommended Parlays: Hendricks (-350) parlayed with Pearson/Stout Over 2.5 rounds (-165) at +106 for 2.35u to win 2.5u
