UFC On FOX 28 Odds, Under Dogs And Best Bets!

Get a detailed breakdown of the betting lines for UFC on FOX 28, which is set to hit Amway Center in Orlando, Fla., this weekend (Sat., Feb. 24, 2018), including best bets, underdogs, favorites and much more!

Two Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Featherweight bangers on the heels of knockout victories do battle inside Amway Center in Orlando, Fla., this Saturday evening (Feb. 24, 2018) when Jeremy Stephens takes on Josh Emmett in the main event of UFC on FOX 28.

The four-fight broadcast also includes a clash between top-tier women’s Strawweight contenders Jessica Andrade and Tecia Torres, a Light Heavyweight throwdown between the heavy-handed Ovince Saint Preux and Ilir Latifi, and what ought to be a genuine banger between Mike Perry and Max Griffin.

Valentine’s Day is over, but your special someone could always use more treats. Here’s how to afford them:

What Went Wrong at UFC Fight Night 126?

For one, I didn’t recommend nearly enough money on Roberto Sanchez. For two, James Vick took Francisco Trinaldo’s punches much better than I expected. Trinaldo didn’t have nearly as much success pressuring as I anticipated, but I stand by my assessment that he was sorely undervalued by the bookies. Vick will get flattened someday soon, though. You can quote me on that.

UFC on FOX 28 Undercard Odds:

Renan Barao (-155) vs. Brian Kelleher (+135)
Sara McMann (-220) vs. Marion Reneau (+180)
Angela Hill (-145) vs. Maryna Moroz (+125)
Alan Jouban (-240) vs. Ben Saunders (+200)
Olivier Aubin-Mercier (-170) vs. Gilbert Burns (+130)
Marcin Prachnio (-285) vs. Sam Alvey (+205)
Rani Yahya (-400) vs. Russell Doane (+280)
Alex Perez (-190) vs. Eric Shelton (+150)
Manny Bermudez (-195) vs. Albert Morales (+155)

Thoughts: I see quite a bit of potential here. Brian Kelleher, Gilbert Burns and Eric Shelton all look like quality underdog investments.

Barao has not looked good, even in victory, since 2014. He looked pedestrian against Phillipe Nover and showed rock-bottom fight IQ against Jeremy Stephens and Aljamain Sterling, both of whom he had the skills to dominate. He’s also cutting to 135 pounds without an IV, which he’s flat-out not allowed to do in at least one state because of the effects on his health. Kelleher is durable and relentless, which is enough to get me leaning his way.

The last time Aubin-Mercier took on a world-class Brazilian jiu-jitsu artist, he got dominated for three rounds. Burns is certainly capable of recreating Diego Ferreira’s triumph, especially since he’s a more complete kickboxer with every bit as much stopping power in his strikes. “Durinho” for the win.

There’s a difference between dominating the likes of Carls Jon de Tomas and giving Tim Elliott a run for his money. Alex Perez — despite having more professional fights — doesn’t have anywhere near Shelton’s level of experience against the cream of the crop. Shelton can hold his own wherever the fight goes, so expect him to earn the victory.

UFC on FOX 28 Main Card Odds:

Jeremy Stephens (-165) vs. Josh Emmett (+145)
Jessica Andrade (-320) vs. Tecia Torres (+260)
Ovince Saint Preux (-120) vs. Ilir Latifi (EVEN)
Mike Perry (-340) vs. Max Griffn (+280)

Thoughts: All of these fights, save perhaps for Andrade vs. Torres, could turn on a dime, so I would not recommend putting any money on them. Even the exception is worth staying away from, as Torres has upset potential, but isn’t a sufficiently live dog to justify putting money on.

UFC on FOX 28 Best Bets:

  • Single bet — Brian Kelleher: Bet $ 50 to make $ 67.50
  • Single bet — Gilbert Burns: Bet $ 60 to make $ 78
  • Single bet — Eric Shelton: Bet $ 80 to make $ 104

There are lot of folks who are going to get knocked senseless, methinks, so be sure you’re there to watch. See you Saturday, Maniacs!

UFC ‘Austin’ Odds, Under Dogs And Best Bets!

Get a detailed breakdown of the betting lines for UFC Fight Night 126, which is set to hit Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, this weekend (Sun., Feb. 18, 2018), including best bets, underdogs, favorites and much more!

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Austin, Texas, for a Sunday (Feb. 18, 2018) spectacular this weekend, putting finishers Donald Cerrone and Yancy Medeiros against each other in UFC Fight Night 126’s main event. The evening will also see Derrick Lewis take on Marcin Tybura, James Vick throw down with Francisco Trinaldo, and Thiago Alves welcome Curtis Millender to the Octagon inside Frank Erwin Center.

Ain’t no gambling like gambling on the Lord’s day … here’s how to go about it:

What Went Wrong at UFC 221?

Well, it’s about time I had a straight-up bust this year. Jake Matthews and Jussier Formiga both showed significantly more stopping power than in previous appearances and got me much more interested in their future fights. Formiga was also aided by Ben Nguyen continuing to throw naked low kicks despite getting taken down from them more than once, but no use crying over spilled brain cells.

UFC Fight Night 126 Odds For The Undercard:

Jared Gordon (-260) vs. Diego Ferreira (+200)
Geoffrey Neal (-215) vs. Brian Camozzi (+170)
Joby Sanchez (-135) vs. Roberto Sanchez (+105)
Lucie Pudilova (-155) vs. Sarah Moras (+125)
Brandon Davis (-195) vs. Steven Peterson (+160)
Oskar Piechota (-260) vs. Tim Williams (+210)
Alex Morono (-230) vs. Josh Burkman (+180)

Thoughts: Roberto Sanchez did not start out as an underdog. He should not be one now. Joby has the UFC experience and Roberto’s last fight was something of a disaster, but the style match up is definitely in the latter’s favor. Joby got taken down by both of his “Tuesday Night Contender Series” opponents and Roberto’s opponents tend not to get back up once he puts them on their backs. Roberto wins the Sanchez battle, so bet accordingly. And be sure to double-check your ticket.

UFC Fight Night 126 Odds For The Main Card:

Donald Cerrone (-160) vs. Yancy Medeiros (+140)
Marcin Tybura (-145) vs. Derrick Lewis (+125)
James Vick (-220) vs. Francisco Trinaldo (+180)
Thiago Alves (-180) vs. Curtis Millender (+150)
Sage Northcutt (-300) vs. Thibault Gouti (+240)

Thoughts: I am more than happy to admit that my distaste for James Vick colors my thinking, but putting him as a -220 favorite over someone who’s 8-1 in his last nine bouts seems a bit excessive. Their resumes are fairly close when it comes to quality of opponents and it’s worth noting that Vick’s sole UFC loss came against another southpaw pressure fighter in Beneil Dariush. Trinaldo is still a beast at 39 and has the goods to ruin Vick’s homecoming.

UFC Fight Night 126 Best Bets:

  • Single bet — Roberto Sanchez: Bet $ 80 to make $ 84
  • Single bet — Francisco Trinaldo: Bet $ 50 to make $ 90

Somebody’s getting hurt and somebody’s getting a bonus in the main event. See you Sunday, Maniacs!
