Here is my parlay: Women’s Strawweight bout: Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger (+225) vs Tecia Torres (-285) Gabe’s Thoughts: I see this women’s 115-pound contest playing out on the feet for the majority of three rounds of action, where we see both fighters have their moments until the final bell. More often than not, I think Torres will take the nod. I think this will be a closely contested match-up and see her edging it out on the judges’ scorecards more often than not. I think there is some value in short notice promotional newcomer Jones-Lybarger at her current offering underdog price of +225, so I can’t blame anybody for taking a shot at it, however I’m personally sticking with the Over 2.5 rounds Total at -325, as I have a hard time seeing this fight end within two and a half rounds of action. Both ladies are very talented, but they are also very durable. I see this as being a war that goes the distance and like the Total for a leg to this two-way preliminary card parlay. Gabe’s Call: Torres by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) Welterweight bout: Colby Covington (-115) vs Warlley Alves (-105) Gabe’s Thoughts: Covington is unquestionably the superior wrestler heading into this 170-pound contest between two undefeated prospects and I think he uses said advantage to grind the Brazilian out on the mat for three rounds of action en route to a unanimous decision victory on the judges’ scorecards. I could see Alves hurting Covington in the first round, but if that were to happen, I think there’s a great chance Covington will survive the round and come back to win the second and third for a unanimous 29-28 nod from the judges’ at Octagon-side. That said, I do favor him to get the better of Alves with his wrestling from the opening bell. It may take a while to start doing damage, as the Brazilian possesses excellent takedown defense and may spend the majority of the first frame defending Covington’s takedowns against the cage. Eventually, I think Covington will wear the Brazilian out and begin to cruise to the scorecards. I think he should be a -230 betting favorite heading into this match-up, so I see a good amount of value in him at his current offering price of -115. Gabe’s Call: Covington by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Jones-Lybarger/Torres Over 2.5 rounds (-325) and Covington (-115) at +144 for 4.95 to win 7.15u
