Joe WarrenBellator 135 Date: March 27, 2015 Arena: Winstar World Casino City: Thackerville, OK Bellator 135 will be live on Spike TV tonight at 9pm ET with a four fight main card, with a seven fight preliminary card to precede it on at 6:30pm ET. If interested in wagering on any of these prop bets or any plays for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at Several Bookmakerss. My prop plays for Bellator 135 are: Bantamweight title bout: Joe Warren (-210) vs Marcos Galvao (+175) Warren by Decision (+110) .5u to win .7u While I can see Warren getting the finish in this rematch, especially in rounds four and five, I still favor him to get his hand raised on the judges’ scorecards, so at +110, I’ll put a little something on it. Lightweight bout: Hideo Tokoro (+265) vs L.C. Davis (-325) Davis by Decision (+120) .5u to win .6u Davis has made it no secret that he plans to stuff Tokoro’s takedowns in this bout and beat him up on the feet, and I think he will find success doing so. A finish wouldn’t be a surprise, but this is another contest where I favor the betting favorite to get the win on the judges’ scorecards. At +120, I think it’s worth a play, considering I think it’s dog money on what is the most likely outcome to a match-up on a guy who is -325 straight up. Light Heavyweight bout: Francis Carmont (-335) vs Guilherme Viana (+275) Not Carmont ITD (-135) 1.35u to win 1u Viana ITD (+410) .5u to win 2.05u I slightly favor Viana to win this fight, and should he get his hand raised, I like his chances of it coming by way of stoppage. A decision is possible, too, but considering how hard he hits and Carmont’s recent KO defeat, I am leaning towards a finish. Whether he does find Carmont’s chin or not, I don’t think the Frenchman will find Viana’s and his most likely route to victory is to outpoint Viana en route to a judges’ decision. Lightweight bout: Dakota Cochrane (+120) vs Ryan Couture (-140) Fight Goes Distance (+130) 1u to win 1.3u Cochrane by Decision (+359) .6u to win 2.15u To put it simply, I think this 155-pound match-up hits the judges’ scorecards for a decision more often than not, and assuming both fighters show up on top of their game, I think Cochrane gets his hand raised more often than not.
