Here are my live dogs for UFC Fight Night 73: Light Heavyweight bout: Glover Teixeira (-120) vs Ovince St Preux (+100) Gabe’s Thoughts: This is a tough fight for OSP but I think he is getting better while the Brazilian is on a decline, not to mention OSP is taking his career and training more seriously. He is the fighter between the two who possesses more power and has the better chin, so that makes me favor him in the stand-up, even though Teixeira will be a threat there throughout the contest. He would also be a threat on the mat. Both fighters are talented all around and are capable of finishing the fight anywhere, though if OSP submits Teixeira, most likely it will be because he hurt him with his heavy hands first. I think OSP should be a -140 betting favorite here, so I’ll take him at +100. I see this fight as a “dog or pass” situation and I am opting to make a play on the underdog. Gabe’s Call: OSP by T/KO (punches, 0:18 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play: OSP (+100) 1.75u to win 1.75u Flyweight bout: Geane Herrera (+350) vs Ray Borg (-440) Gabe’s Thoughts: In short, I think this is a coin-flip fight that could easily go either way, but I actually lean towards the massive underdog Herrera for my pick, so at his current price of +350, of course I will also be making a big move on him. Gabe’s Call: Herrera by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Herrera (+350) 4u to win 14u
