ASKHAMUFC Fight Night 93: Arlovski vs Barnett Date: September 3, 2016 Arena: Barclaycard, Arena City: Hamburg, Germany The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heads to Hamburg, Germany for the first time in promotional history. The main card action is set to kick off at 3pm ET, with prelims preceding it at 11:45am ET. All of the action will be live on UFC Fight Pass. If interested in wagering on any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines will be made available at Several Bookmakerss. My Fights to AVOID betting are: Welterweight bout: Jessin Ayari (+115) vs Jim Wallhead (-135) Gabe’s Thoughts: This is a bout between a pair of promotional newcomers and it will be the featured bout of the preliminary card for UFC Fight Night 93. It is a match-up that pits Ayari, a young up and comer, against Wallhead, a gritty veteran who has been longing for a spot on the UFC’s roster. I do like Wallhead in this spot, even considering the fact that Ayari will have the hometown advantage heading in. At this point in their careers, I think Wallhead is the better fighter, and if healthy, he should manage to get his hand raised. I say “if healthy” because I believe that this is a fight he would take whether he is injured or not, so part of me feels like he won’t be all that healthy heading into this contest. Gut feelings aside, I think he is the right side for a play here at his currently offered price of -135, as I think he should be a -160 favorite heading in. For me personally, it isn’t enough to make me pull the trigger, so this is gonna be a fight I avoid at the sportsbooks this Saturday. Gabe’s Call: Wallhead by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Gabe’s Recommended Play: AVOID Middleweight bout: Scott Askham (-110) vs Jack Hermansson (-110) Gabe’s Thoughts: Askham is coming off a first round TKO win over Chris Dempsey and will be looking to make it two in a row inside the Octagon when he takes on Swedish promotional newcomer Hermansson on the UFC Fight Night 93 preliminary card. The odds suggest that this is a coin-flip match-up and I am inclined to agree, more or less. I think Askham should be a very slight -130 favorite, so I am going to opt to avoid making a play on him at -110. Perhaps if heavy action comes in on Hermansson and drives Askham to the +120/+130 range, I will make a move on him. Other than that, I will be keeping my wallet away from this one. I favor Askham to get his hand raised, but there are questions surrounding Hermansson in his debut for me to confidently make a move on Askham, especially at the current odds. Gabe’s Call: Askham by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Play: AVOID
