Live Dogs for UFC Fight Night 89

Chris-Beal_pUFC Fight Night 89: MacDonald vs Thompson Date: June 18, 2016 Arena: The Arena at TD Place City: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heads to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada for the first time in promotional history with UFC Fight Night 89: MacDonald vs Thompson. The 13-fight card kicks off with the UFC Fight Pass prelims at 6:45pm ET, with televised prelims to follow on FOX Sports 1 at 8:30pm ET and the main card getting going at 10:30pm ET. If interested in wagering on these plays, or any plays for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at Several Bookmakerss. Here are my live dogs: Light Heavyweight bout: Ion Cutelaba (+175) vs Misha Cirkunov (-210) Gabe’s Thoughts: I was hoping Cirkunov would be ridiculously overvalued as usual so I could get Cirkunov at +700 or something insane like that, but I’ll have to settle for +175. I think this is a close fight and I slightly favor Cirkunov to get his hand raised. However, at the current betting odds, I think the value is with the promotional newcomer Cutelaba. I think he should be a +130 underdog, so I like him for a small play at his current offering price of +175. I could see him winning this fight by finish or on the scorecards, and do believe catching Cirkunov with a counter during an exchange and putting him away is his best chance at getting his hand raised. Gabe’s Call: Cirkunov by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Cutelaba (+175) 1u to win 1.75u Bantamweight bout: Chris Beal (-120) vs Joe Soto (+100) Gabe’s Thoughts: Simply put, I think Soto should be a -170 betting favorite heading into this contest, so I see value in him at his current asking price of +100. The former Bellator featherweight champion is the more experienced fighter of the two and has a massive edge in grappling heading into the contest. As long as he finds success with his takedowns, this is his fight, and I see him finding success in taking the fight to the mat on Saturday night. Gabe’s Call: Soto by Submission (D’Arce choke, 3:31 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Soto (+100) 2u to win 2u
