Valentina Shevchenko vs. Priscila Cachoeira: (W) Flyweight

The UFC’s #1 women’s bantamweight Valentina Shevchenko began her UFC Belem betting life as a huge favorite at -705, but that didn’t stop the betting public from still laying down some loot on the former title challenger. The wagers shifted Shevchenko from a huge favorite to a mega favorite as her moneyline now sits at an insane -1000. On the flip side, Priscila Cachoeira opened up with a moderate dog tag of +435 before being catapulted up to a sky scrapping +650.


Anthony Smith vs. Thiago Santos: Middleweight

Both of these guys are straight killers! They kill. It’s what they do. The difference is that Thiago Santos typically murders his victims early in the fight, where as Anthony Smith likes to turn it up late. Santos has a great chance of getting this done early, however the cardio and grappling edge more than likely reside on the side of Smith, and because of that, Smith has a much better chance than the +240 odds would indicate. Anthony Smith @ +240 is the value pick here.
