I’ll start with the main card. The first one that interests me is Cub Swanson, who opened as a +105 underdog. After the early action came in on him, it’s now Poirier who’s the underdog at +110. This is going to be a competitive fight but if I have to give someone the edge it’s Swanson, who has looked tremendous lately, so the public is likely on the right track. But if you think Poirier has a chance to win then getting him at + money now is a bonus for you. The next line that I find interesting is James Te Huna, who opened up at -165. Te Huna is up to -195 already, so if you think Ryan Jimmo can pull off the upset, getting a guy who just tied the UFC record for fastest knockout at +155 might be worth a small play. And finally, I’m intrigued at the line movement of Che Mills, who opened up at -140. The early action has been all over Mills, who is now all the way up to -275. That’s a little too high, in my opinion, and with Matt Riddle sitting at +195 now, personally I think the American is worth a stab. As for the prelims, the fight that has been getting the most action has been Paul Sass vs. Danny Castillo, which opened as a Pick ’em. Both sides got early action and the line jumped all over the place, but it seems to have settled with Sass as a slight favorite. Another one that has been getting action is Andy Ogle vs. Josh Grispi. Grispi opened as a -230 favorite, but the public has come in on Ogle and now Grispi sits at -155. And one more that stands out is Stanislav Nedkov vs. Tom Watson. After Watson opened at -140, the public came in on Nedkov and now the line sits at a Pick ’em of -120 a pop.
