World Series of Fighting 32 Closing Odds and Results

Marlon_MoraesWorld Series of Fighting 32 took place last night (Saturday, July 30, 2016) at the Xfinity Arena in Everett, Washington, and it featured a mixture of highlight reel finishes and decisions. Overall from a betting perspective, two betting favorites won while one underdogs won and there was one pick’em fight based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers. Here’s a quick recap for each fight. WSOF 32 Favorites That Won In the main event of the evening, WSOF bantamweight champion Marlon Moraes continued his run of dominance by destroying Josh Hill in a rematch. After a strong first round, Moraes connected with brutal head kick just 17 seconds into the second round to knock Hill out cold and retain his title once more. Moraes came through as a -355 favorite (bet $355 to win $100) while Hill lost at +325 (bet $100 to win $325). In a catchweight bout between two adopted brothers, UFC veteran Caros Fodor easily took care of his bigger, less experienced brother Ben “Phoenix Jones” Fodor. Caros utilized his superior grappling and wrestling to take Ben down repeatedly and was able to coast to a decision without taking much damage. Caros Fodor won at -145 while Ben Fodor. lost as a +135 dog. WSOF 32 Underdogs That Won In a middleweight bout, Phil Hawes and Louis Taylor weren’t shy about throwing down in the first round, although Hawes eventually picked up a takedown. In the second frame, Hawes was pressuring Taylor, but got caught with a clean punch and was dropped. Taylor swarmed him and eventually set up a guillotine choke to force a tap right before Hawes went unconscious. Taylor was a +165 dog while Hawes was a -175 favorite. Pick’em Fights In the co-main event of the evening, Lance Palmer looked for revenge against the man who took his featherweight title, Alexandre Almeida. Palmer looked for takedowns, but when those weren’t effective, he was aggressive on the feet, landing solid strikes and putting good pressure on his taller, longer Brazilian foe. Almeida scored a knockdown in the third round, but Palmer controlled just about everything else, earning a majority decision on the judges’ scorecards to regain his title. Both fighters closed at -105.
