Prop Plays for Bellator 148

Paul-DaleyBellator 148 Date: January 29, 2016 Arena: Save Mart Center City: Boston, MA Bellator Fighting Championship heads to Fresno, CA tonight (January 29, 2016) with Bellator 148: Daley vs Uhrich. The event will feature 11 bouts in entirety, with a four fight main card set to kick off on Spike TV at 9pm ET. Preliminary action will precede it via live stream on the promotion’s website at 7:40pm ET. If interested in wagering on these plays, or any plays for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at 5Dimes Sportsbooks. Here are my prop plays: Andy Uhrich (+660) vs Paul Daley (-840) Uhrich +3.5 (+350) 1u to win 3.5u I think there is value in Uhrich straight up at +660, but I won’t be making a straight play on him. I think Daley is being way over-valued at his current asking price of -840 and would not advise anyone to play him at those odds. He is not the fighter he used to be and I don’t think he should be an 8-to-1 betting favorite over most anybody. This play is more of a fade on Daley than a bet on Uhrich, as I don’t trust Daley. I won’t be surprised to see him score a knockout or win all three rounds, but I also won’t be at all surprised to see him win a very close decision, or even lose the fight. At +350, I’ll take a shot on Uhrich winning at least one round against the declining veteran “Semtex” in this 170-pound main event contest. Chris Honecutt (-305) vs Paul Bradley (+275) Bradley by Decision (+435) 1u to win 4.35u I favor Honeycutt to win this fight on the judges’ scorecards but the line for the prop on him to win by decision is -120, and I don’t see much value there. I think this could be a close fight when it hits the cards, and at +435, I think there’s some value to be had here with Bradley taking the nod. Patricky Freire (-210) vs Ryan Couture (+190) Couture by Decision (+320) 2u to win 6.4u I think Couture winning a decision is the most likely outcome to this lightweight contest, and at +320, I really love it for a play. I personally played it at +420 and it has since dropped. I see Couture making this an ugly fight, dictating the pace, and grinding the Brazilian out for three rounds en route to a unanimous decision victory on the judges’ scorecards.
