If interested in wagering on this parlay, or any other plays for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at Several Bookmakerss. Here is my two-way parlay for the preliminary card of UFC Fight Night 67 in New Orleans: Welterweight bout: Brian Ebersole (+115) vs Omari Akhmedov (-135) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think this will be an ugly, three rounds of action-less action where both 170-pounds attempt to pressure each other against the cage. If they both decide to strike, it could very well turn out to be an entertaining scrap, but I think Ebersole is going to try to grind this one out, and whether he is successful in getting his hand raised or not, I think he will at least find success in slowing down the fight and allowing it to end up in the hands of the judges at Octagon-side. Gabe’s Call: Ebersole by Split Decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) Bantamweight bout: Jose Quinonez (+160) vs Leonardo Morales (-185) Gabe’s Thoughts: Both fighters are coming off losses in this contest and are in dire need of a win, as a loss could mean receiving a pink slip from the cutthroat promotion. Morales is making the drop from featherweight down to the 135-pound division for this contest, and to put it simply, I think he is the superior fighter and one way or another will end up getting his hand raised. A finish would certainly not surprise me, but I am favoring him to get the better of Quinonez over the course of three rounds of action to pick up a unanimous 30-27 victory on the judges’ scorecards. Gabe’s Call: Morales by Unanimous Decision Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Ebersole/Akhmedov Over 2.5 rounds (-190) and Morales (-185) at +135 3u to win 4.05u
