UFC 205: Locks and Underdogs Betting Preview


Feels like Justin and I are in here every few months talking about the biggest UFC event ever, the biggest fight of all time and were once again at it with the absolutely stacked UFC 205 carved for Madison Square Garden in New York. Now we’ve done a few other videos discussing the three big title fights so check those out on our YouTube page but right now we’re looking at the rest of the card and are each picking a lock and an underdog so Justin start us off with a guaranteed moneymaker who is your lock for UFC 205? Well the term lock is going to be difficult on this card like you say absolutely loaded but I’m going to go to the bottom of the card, I’m taking Katlyn Chookagian at -180 against Liz Carmouche. Chookagian is a great striker, she has a gold-gloves when she was 16 in boxing, she’s very good at the jab, moving and kind of just scoring on points. She also has a brown belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and I think that’s gonna put cause a big problem for Carmouche. Carmouche is one-dimensional. She’s not a good striker, she’s a wrestler so she might take this to the ground but I think that Chookagian is good enough to weasel her way out of there and then kind of win a less than stellar fight. My lock for UFC 205 is Miesha Tate who is a favorite in the minus -175 range over Raquel Pennington. This is simply a case of fighters who are at two completely different skill levels, Tate is a bit of an all-or-nothing fighter and if you want a beat her you basically have to absolutely destroy her and Pennington isn’t capable of just walking through her. I really like her in this fight and I think it’s easiest pick on the card. So Justin would do you like as an underdog? Again going into the fight pass for this one I’m gonna take Jim Miller over Thiago Alves. Now Alves is going to be about a year-and-a-half removed from his last fight he’s also fighting at 155 for the first time normally fights at 170 so we’re yet to see how that weight cut drains him obviously he was so skilled at 170 but we have to wonder Jim Miller is great in every aspect of the game even if Alves sees a bit of a drop in any of the areas kind of the weight cut I think Miller can probably exploit that and pick up the win. New Yorkers won’t be happy with me for this one but I’m going with Yoel Romero over New York native Chris Weidman. Romero is a perfect 7-0 in the UFC with only two of those wins going to a decision and I’m liking the value offers a +140. Weidman is absolutely one of the top middleweights in the world but I’m starting to question how much wear and tear he can still put up with and still hang out at the top of the division. He’s had a lot of injuries, a few surgeries and he’s coming off a brutal loss, I think it catches up with them at UFC 205. Obviously we have to start questioning maybe his health going into this because he’s missed a lot of flights both of these guys are great fighters Wideman maybe a little bit more all around and Romero probably more explosive and athletic but again to top five ranked guys in the middleweight division that whole top of the middleweight division is murderers row. Okay that is it for our locks and underdogs. For all your UFC 205 betting coverage including all of Justin’s pics for the main card keep it locked on OddsShark.com the pound-for-pound king of sports betting news.
