birchak_fb-430x270UFC Fight Night 90: dos Anjos vs Alvarez Date: July 7, 2016 Arena: MGM Grand Garden Arena City: Las Vegas, NV The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is back in Las Vegas on Thursday, July 7th with UFC Fight Night 90: dos Anjos vs Alvarez. The 12-fight card airs entirely on UFC Fight Pass, with preliminary action kicking off 6:30pm ET, with main card action getting underway at 10pm ET. If interested in wagering on these plays, or any plays for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at 5Dimes Sportsbooks. Here are my prop plays: Rafael dos Anjos (-345) vs Eddie Alvarez (+285) Alvarez by T/KO (+600) .25u to win 1.5u Alvarez +5.5 (+175) 2u to win 3.5u I think Alvarez has a legitimate chance of scoring an upset in this contest. I think this title fight is much closer than the betting odds suggest, and even if he does come out on the losing end, I expect Alvarez to at least make this a competitive five round battle. Roy Nelson (-130) vs Derrick Lewis (+110) Nelson by Decision (+690) .5u to win 3.45u If either one of these heavyweights opt to play it safe, I think this fight would stand a good chance of reaching the judges’ scorecards for a decision, where I would favor Nelson to take the nod, as he did in his previous outing inside the Octagon against Jared Rosholt. Alan Jouban (-140) vs Belal Muhammad (+120) Jouban by Submission (+1000) .5u to win 5u Jouban in Round One (+425) 1u to win 4.25u This will likely be a striking battle but Jouban’s Jiu-Jitsu is under-rated and if this fight hits the mat, I think he will have an advantage and stand a fair chance at securing a submission. It’s no secret that he will be aiming to finish this fight in the first round, and be it by T/KO or tapout, I think he has a decent chance of getting the job done. Mike Pyle (-130) vs Alberto Mina (+110) Pyle by T/KO (+390) .5u to win 1.95u Pyle in Round Three (+825) .6u to win 4.95u I think Pyle’s veteran experience and superior cardio could benefit him in this contest, if he is able to take Mina into deep waters. Coming off a third round finish of Sean Spencer in his last outing inside the Octagon, I think Pyle has a good chance of earning another third round stoppage this time, as well. Anthony Birchak (-250) vs Dileno Lopes (+210) Birchak by Submission (+555) .65u to win 3.6u I think there’s value in Birchak by Submission at +555 because I think he has advantages in grappling and size over Lopez, and I think that could ultimately result in a submission victory.
