Pair of Parlays for UFC 198

Warlley-AlvesUFC 198 Date: May 14, 2016 Arena: Arena da Baixada City: Curitiba, Parana, Brazil The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heads to Curitiba, Parana, Brazil this Saturday (May 14, 2016) with UFC 198: Werdum vs Miocic. The incredibly stacked 12-fight card kicks off on UFC Fight Pass at 6:15pm ET, with preliminary action continuing on FOX Sports 1 at 8pm ET, and the main card getting going at 10pm ET on Pay Per View. 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: Welterweight bout: Bryan Barbarena (+420) vs Warlley Alves (-550) Gabe’s Thoughts: I don’t know what’s going on here. This machmaking makes absolutely zero sense. Alves is coming off an impressive win over Colby Covington and now takes several steps down in competition to face Alves. No sense, just none. Perhaps the UFC just wants to really punish Barbarena for beating their boy Sage Northcutt. In any case, I expect this fight to be a walk in the park for Alves, who has the advantage everywhere. Barbarena is very tough to finish but I think Alves is the type of fighter who can accomplish that task. Gabe’s Call: Alves by Submission (guillotine choke, 2:!3 round 1) Welterweight bout: Nate “The Great” Marquardt (+300) vs Thiago “Marreta” Santos (-360) Gabe’s Thoughts: I believe Marquardt should be retired by now and there’s a good chance Santos puts him there, depending on how viciously he ends the fight. I expect Santos to dominate on the feet here and likely put Marquardt away early. A few years ago, I may have given a striking edge to Marquardt, but today, I think it will be a mismatch in favor of Santos, mainly because of Santos’ power vs Marquardt’s chin. Gabe’s Call: Santos by T/KO (puches, 0:53 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Parlays: 1) Alves (-550) and Santos (-360) at -197 for 5u to win 2.55u and 2) Barbarena/Alves Under 2.5 rounds (+105) and Marquardt/Santos Under 1.5 rounds (-130) at +262 for 1.6u to win 4.2u
