Rashad Coulter vs. Chase Sherman: Heavyweight
Rashad Coulter (-101) opened up for his UFC 211 debut at underdog odds around +150, but following yesterday’s weigh-ins, the UFC new comer has moved to a slight favorite betting line. Chase Sherman (-107) started his UFC 211 betting life at around -190, but the gambling public haven’t been showing him much love.
James Vick vs. Marco Polo Reyes: Lightweight
Both James Vick (-330) and Marco Polo Reyes (+300) have only lost in the 1st round. Half of Vick’s victories happened inside of 1 round, and for Polo Reyes, 8 out of his 12 matches ended inside of 1.5 rounds (Including TUF). Both fighter’s are tough, but Under 1.5 rounds @+122 is tempting.
Gadzhimurad Antigulov vs. Joachim Christensen: Light Heavyweight
Not only does Gadzhimurad Antigulov (-385) have 14 submission wins to his credit, but those wins have also come in a wide variety of ways. From Anacondas to Kneebars, and everything in between, Antigulov is known to finish fools with the quickness. Joachim Christensen (+345) is tougher than a $2 dollar steak, but getting submitted by Frankenstein (Luis Henrique da Silva), from the guard no less, is really hard to ignore. Antigulov wins inside distance @ -140 is a strong look.
