UFC Predictions and 219 Odds: Cyborg vs. Holm
There is not any big’dog calling out in UFC 218 to me. However, there’s one man on this card who could withstand some steep odds.
Francis Ngannou (-270) vs. Alistair Overeem (+230)
Alistair Overeem might get merked with a larger and stronger puncher at Francis Ngannou, but in the +230, he’s well worth throwing a few pennies at. Normally I’d place this fight in the stay-away class, but this really is a significant test for Ngannou, a man who hasn’t been analyzed yet.
Overeem is a veteran of the sport and, though his chin may be suspect, he’s among the greatest fight IQs from the heavyweight division. His in-cage smarts and kickboxing ability could give a big upset to us along with a nice profit. Don’t go mad with this, though. Ngannou deserves to be favored, not by this much. Overeem is well worth a little wager.
Felice Herrig (-140) vs. Cortney Casey (+110)
Cortney Casey is not a massive dog, but her +105 moneyline would still net you a decent return or boost a parlay. Both fighters have looked solid, but stylistically, Casey seems to have the strength and size to provide Herrig problems. The only woman that has been able to match Casey’s physicality was Claudia Gadelha and that woman is one of the finest in the division. If Casey can pour on the pressure, she can overwhelm Herrig and pick up a tiny upset win here. Again, don’t go mad and throw your whole bankroll, but Casey is well worth a few shekels.
