Pair of Parlays for UFC 200

Cain VelasquezUFC 200 Date: July 9, 2016 Arena: T-Mobile Arena City: Las Vegas, NV The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will be in the new T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday July 9th, 2016 with UFC 200, the most stacked card in the promotion’s history with 12 exciting bouts, including three title fights and the return of Brock Lesnar. The main card will be kicking off at 10pm ET on Pay Per View, with preliminary action preceding it on FOX Sports 1 at 8pm ET and UFC Fight Pass at 6:30pm ET. If interested in wagering on this parlay, or any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines are currently made available at 5Dimes Sportsbooks. Here is my parlay: Women’s Bantamweight title bout: Miesha Tate (-250) vs Amanda Nunes (+210) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think this is Tate’s fight to lose. As long as she does not get finished early in this fight, I believe she will walk away with it in the later rounds. Worst case scenario, Nunes has improved cardio and survives to see the judges’ scorecards, but more than likely, I think Tate will take her into deep waters, take her back and finish her with patented Tate-Caraway rear naked choke. I would say Tate finishes the fight at the end of the second or mid-way into the third round, but because I am expecting at least some improved cardio from the Brazilian, I will say that she makes it to the championship rounds and gets put away either in the fourth or fifth. I think Nunes will have the advantage on the feet to start off the fight, but in round three, when she starts to slow down, I think Tate will start to take-over in the striking. Needless to say, the fighter formerly nicknamed “Takedown” will be enjoying a grappling advantage heading into her first UFC Women’s Bantamweight title defense, as well as an advantage in conditioning. Gabe’s Call: Tate by Submission (rear naked choke, 4:01 round 4) Heavyweight bout: Cain Velasquez (-275) vs Travis Browne (+235) Gabe’s Thoughts: In short, I think Velasquez pressures Browne against the cage, unloads a combination that buckles his knees and forces the referee to step in and halt the contest. Gabe’s Call: Velasquez by T/KO (punches, 2:06 round 1) Gabe’s Recommended Parlays: 1) Tate (-250) and Velasquez (-275) at -110 for 3.3u to win 3u and 2) Tate/Nunes Over 1.5 rounds (-235) and Velasquez/Browne Under 1.5 rounds (-115) at +166 for 2.15u to win 3.58u
