Over/Under Totals for UFC 198

Cris CyborgUFC 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 any plays for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at Several Bookmakerss. My Over/Under Totals are: Women’s Catchweight (140lbs) bout: Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino (-1700) vs Leslie Smith (+1100) Gabe’s Thoughts: Leslie Smith is tough, so maybe she’ll be able to hang in there for a couple of minutes. In short, I expect a classic “Cyborg” performance here in her UFC debut, resulting in a first round stoppage. Gabe’s Call: “Cyborg” by T/KO (punches, 3:22 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Under 1.5 rounds (-245) 4.9u to win 2u Light Heavyweight bout: Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (+210) vs Patrick Cummins (-250) Gabe’s Thoughts: This is a big fight for both 205-pounders who are hungry for victory. Nogueira is coming off back to back losses to Anthony “Rumble” Johnson and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, respectively, and Cummins is himself coming off a sour knockout loss at the hands of Glover Teixeira. In dire need of a win, I expect both fighters to leave it all inside the Octagon, and in such a scenario, I think Cummins’ tools are superior to Nogueira’s, so I would expect him to dominate the majarity of the 15-minutes of action with his superior wrestling. If the Brazilian does not catch Cummins, it could end up being a very long night for him, as I don’t like his chances of earning a nod of the fight hits the judges’ scorecards for a decision. Gabe’s Call: Cummins by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Over 1.5 rounds (-270) 2.7u to win 1u
