Bellator 141 Closing Odds and Results

Brandon-GirtzBellator 141 took place last night (August 28, 2015) at the Pechange Resort and Casino in Temecula, California. Overall the card featured a few exciting finishes but also several lackluster decisions on the main card. From a betting perspective, five favorites and seven underdogs won based on the closing odds at 5Dimes Sportsbook. Here’s a quick recap for each fight. Bellator 141 Favorites That Won In the co-main event of the evening in a lightweight bout, Patricky “Pitbull” Freire won a unanimous decision over veteran Saad Awad. It was a close fight, but “Pitbull” did just enough each round to convince the judges to side with him for each frame. Freire cashed at -120 (Bet $120 to win $100) while Awad closed at +110 (Bet $100 to win $110) as the dog. In a heavyweight bout, Justin Wren made his long-awaited return to the cage by earning a unanimous decision over an overmatched Josh Burns. It wasn’t the best performance, but Wren did what he needed to win an pretty one-sided unanimous victory. Wren closed at -660 while Burns was the +540 underdog. In a women’s featherweight bout, Marloes Coenen did what most expected and pulled off a second round submission of former Aussie kickboxing champion Arlene Blencowe. Coenen closed at -600 while Blencowe lost as a +450 dog.   Bellator 141 Underdogs That Won In the main event of the evening, lightweight Brandon Girtz pulled off a shocker as he spoiled Melvin Guillard’s Bellator debut with a split decision victory. Girtz utilized a mixture of takedowns and counter-striking to do enough to earn the nod from the judges. Girtz played spoiler as a +305 underdog while Guillard disappointed yet again as a -335 favorite. In a lightweight contest, Brent Primus earned a hard-fought split decision victory over a gritty Derek Anderson to cement himself as a contender in the Bellator 155-pound division. Primus pulled off an upset as a +145 underdog while Anderson lost at -155.
