If interested in wagering on these props, or any other plays for this PPV fight card, all betting lines will be made available at Several Bookmakerss. Here are my prop plays for UFC 188: Cain Velasquez (-500) vs Fabricio Werdum (+435) Fight Doesn’t Go to Decision (-260) 5.2u to win 2u Regardless of who gets his hand raised in this heavyweight title fight scheduled for five rounds, I do not see it going the distance. Kelvin Gastelum (-450) vs Nate Marquardt (+400) Gastelum by T/KO (+241) 1u to win 2.41u Gastelum by Submission (+400) .5u to win 2u Gastelum -3.5 (-205) 2.05u to win 1u I think Gastelum is going to prove to be too much for the aging veteran. I see him hurting him with his hands and either finishing up for the T/KO stoppage or taking his back to sink in the rear-naked-choke. Charles Rosa (-210) vs Yair Rodriguez (+195) Rosa by Submission (+275) 1u to win 2.75u Rosa -3.5 (-120) 1.2u to win 1u Rosa is the superior mixed martial artist heading into this featherweight contest and I think he puts on another solid performance here, likely earning another finish inside the Octagon. I think Rosa dominated this fight likely pulls off the submission finish. Angela Hill (+255) vs Tecia Torres (-280) Hill by Decision (+415) 1u to win 4.15u Hill +3.5 (-120) 2.4u to win 2u I think Hill is going to raise some eyebrows in this women’s strawweight match-up by proving to be the superior Muay Thai striker. I think her takedown defense will hold up when Torres realizes she is losing the battle on the feet and tries to take the fight to the mat. I see her stopping the takedowns, keeping the fight on the feet, where it will be close but she will be the one landing the more significant strikes en route to a decision victory on the judges’ scorecards. Chico Camus (+900) vs Henry Cejudo (-1100) Cejudo by Decision (-166) 1.66u to win 1u To put it simply, I think this is the most likely outcome to this flyweight contest. Drew Dober (-145) vs Efrain Escudero (+135) Escudero +3.5 (-225) 4.5u to win 2u I favor Escudero to win this lightweight bout via unanimous decision on the judges’ scorecards, and in addition to my straight play on him, I also like the +3.5 prop, because if he ends up losing, I think it will be a closely contested split decision. That said, in a closely contested bout between the two, I see Escudero taking the nod more oftan than not, whether he deserves it or not, considering he will have the Mexican crowd on his side. Francisco Trevino (+400) vs Johnny Case (-450) Trevino +3.5 (+160) 2u to win 3.2u A lot of people are counting Trevino out of this bout. I am not one of them, as I lean towards him to get his hand raised following a closely contested three rounds of action. Should he lose, I think he will have done enough to have secured one round on the cards.
