Main Card Parlay for UFC on FOX 19

UFC-on-FOXUFC on FOX 19 Date: April 16, 2016 Arena: Amalie Arena City: Tampa, FL The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Tampa, FL for the second time in promotional history with UFC on FOX 19: Teixeira vs Evans. The 12-fight card kicks off with Fight Pass prelims at 4pm ET, then preliminary card action continues on FOX at 6pm ET, with the main card getting going on the same channel at 8pm ET. If interested in wagering on this parlay, or any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines are currently made available at Several Bookmakerss. Here is my parlay: Light Heavyweight bout: Glover Teixeira (-210) vs Rashad Evans (+190) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think Teixeira is the superior mixed martial artist of the two at this point in their career, and as long as he does not get caught with a punch, I see him getting the better of Evans throughout the contest, likely finding a finish along the way. That said, should five round main event scrap hit the judges’ scorecards for a decision, I think the Brazilian will have done eough to earn the nod. I would not be surprised to see Rashad Evans retire following this contest, should he come out on the losing end. Gabe’s Call: Teixeira by T/KO (strikes, 2:42 round 1) Women’s Strawweight bout: Rose Namajunas (-220) vs Tecia Torres (+200) Gabe’s Thoughts: At first I thought I was going to make a value play on Torres, as I saw her as a live dog before really doing my homework on the contest. She clearly beat Namajunas in their first meeting and both ladies have greatly improved their all-around skill-sets since that contest. Rose, though, I think has improved more than Torres and I think she will be able to get the better of Torres in this match-up, for at least two out of three rounds en route to a unanimous decision victory on the judges’ scorecards. That said, I think she also has a decent chance of securing a submission, though I think a decision win is more likely. Gabe’s Call: Namajunas by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Teixeira (-210) and Namajunas (-220) at +114 for 1.75u to win 2u
