In this edition, I cover UFC Fight Night 110 in Auckland, New Zealand.
What is your fav prop for FN110? -V, Los Angeles, CA
Currently, Mark Hunt in Round One (+375) offers the best value, in my opinion, as I think that is the most likely outcome to that heavyweight matchup.
After Lewis knocks out Hunt, does he get a title shot or that Francis Ngannou fight everybody is talkin about?” -Tiger, Baltimore, MD
As I said in my answer to the previous question, I am of the belief that Hunt is going to put Derrick Lewis away in this contest. However, should Lewis come out victorious, I would not hate either matchup. Cain Velasquez is still recovering from injury, so there is no real No. 1 contender. I would understand seeing Lewis jump straight to a title shot, and I would also understand him being pitted against Ngannou in a title eliminator matchup. Like I said though, I don’t expect that to be a realistic dilemma, as I think Hunt will end his losing skid with a knockout victory in Auckland.
Hello, sir. What do you think of my Lewis, Cutelaba, Elliott & Volkanovski parlay? Thanks. -Stuart, Del Rio, TX
It definitely has potential of hitting — they are four betting favorites after all. However, as I said in my answers to the two previous questions, I think Hunt is going to win that fight. As for Cutelaba, I favor him to win but think he is too overpriced at his current offering price of -290 to use him for a parlay piece. I think Ben Nguyen is a live dog in his matchup against Tim Elliott, and that fight is a no bet for me. I am just playing the Over in that one, and Volkanovski of course I like a lot. To conclude, I don’t like the parlay, but I can see it hitting.
