UFC Fight Night 71’s Fights to Avoid Betting

MMA: UFC on Fuel TV-Natal vs CraigUFC Fight Night 71 Date: July 15, 2015 Arena: Valley View Casino Center City: San Diego, CA UFC Fight Night 71: Mir vs Duffee will be live from San Diego, CA tomorrow night with 12-scheduled bouts. The main card is set to kick off at 10pm ET on FOX Sports 1, with preliminary action getting going at 8pm ET on the same channel and a pair of bouts on UFC Fight Pass before it at 7pm ET. If interested on making this parlay or any wagers on this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at Several Bookmakerss. My Fights to AVOID betting for the TUF 21 Finale are: Women’s Bantamweight bout: Holly Holm (-200) vs Marion Reneau (+170) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think this is going to be a close fight and can’t get myself to pull the trigger on either fighter for a bet. I lean with Holm to get her hand raised but can’t blame someone for playing Reneu at the current odds. I also cannot blame anyone playing Holm at these odds either. It’s just one of those fights. There really is no value to be had on either side, in my opinion, but if you’re rooting for either fighter to win, neither would be a bad bet. Gun to the head for a prediction, I would say Holm edges this one out on the judges’ scorecards. Gabe’s Call: Holly Holm by Split Decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Play: AVOID Welterweight bout: Andrew Craig (+235) vs Lyman Good (-275) Gabe’s Thoughts: I see this fight as a “dog or pass” situation and I was eyeing a play on the dog. However, after much consideration, I have opted to pass on him, even though I believe there is value there for a bet. I don’t agree with the current betting lines for this contest, and while I think Craig looks appealing as a +235 underdog, I just don’t trust him at all right now, especially in this fight, which will be his debut at 170-pounds. Good will be making his promotional debut and if he shows up looking to make an impression in the UFC (especially following his poor outing on TUF), then he could be trouble for Craig. As for a prediction, I think this will be a close fight and lean with Good edging it on the judges’ scorecards following three closely contested rounds of action. Gabe’s Call: Good by Split Decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Play: AVOID
