Fundamentals of Betting : Main Event

For those new to contact sports, APEX Boxing Betting has a fundamentals of betting piece that is equally applicable to mixed martial arts.  While the draw option is not much in use for UFC wagering, the winner and amount of rounds wagers run under the same theory.  Let us look at the main event which has Alistair Overeem (40-14) taking on Andrei Arlovski (25-11).  Not only do you have to ask yourself who wins but is it worth the price you are getting.  Overeem is your favorite at -235.  From our research, this price is not reflective of the dominance he has in this fight.  While both have power punches coupled with weak chins, Alistair is a much more complete fighter.  This edge is more than enough to wager him at -235 knowing that his price should have more chalk on it.

Welterweight War

Albert Tumenov (17-2) is set to wreck havoc in the welterweight division.  His striking ability is the best in his weight class.  However UFC has picked the perfect person to contrast him at UFC Fight Night 87.  Gunnar Nelson (14-2-1) has earned his chops via the horizontal game.  His grappling skills are far above Alberts.  Linesmakers have Tumenov as a -185 ML favorite with a prediction of over 1 1/2 rounds being the more likely outcome.  Why is the favorite looked upon as having the advantage?  Tumenov has pretty good takedown prevention skills.  Combine that with the way he can pepper Gunnar from afar as he closes distances makes this an interesting fight.  Our selection is to just enjoy this fight.  If one fighting style is superior to another then most would be doing that.  Not many contrasts of styles of this high quality are in UFC or anywhere else.

These are just two of the high quality bouts for us to bet on Sunday.  Prelims start at noon EST on Fox Sports One.  Same network with a 2PM start for the main card start.  Remember to get in those UFC investments in right now.  Good fortune with our free picks and we will see you next week here at APEX Boxing Betting.
