Five crazy prop bets is a column featured on MMAOddsbreaker.com after every UFC event that highlights the biggest underdog prop bets to cash out from that card Here’s five crazy UFC Fight Night 39 bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at 5Dimes Sportsbook. Roy Nelson wins in round one (+200) In the main event of the evening, Roy Nelson had one of the most impressive wins of his career as he knocked out Minotauro Nogueira with one devastating punch that left the future Hall of Famer lying on the floor unconscious. The prop on Nelson to win in round one cashed at +200, so if you ended up betting that congratulations on your victory. Clay Guida vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri wins “Fight of the Night” (+225) In the co-main event of the evening, Clay Guida and Tatsuya Kawajiri battled back-and-forth for three rounds in an exciting bout that Guida ultimately won, but one which earned both men “Fight of the Night” honours. The prop on the match winning FOTN cashed at +225, so congratulations if you predicted that to be the case (and I know a lot of people thought this). John Howard +3.5 points handicap (+115) In a welterweight bout, Ryan LaFlare and John Howard had a very close fight go to the scorecards, but at the end of three rounds LaFlare got his hand raised by unanimous decision, 29-28 across the board. The points handicap for Howard was +3.5 points, which was a winner. So nice job if you predicted the fight to be as close as it was. Ramsey Nijem wins inside the distance (+975) In the opening fight of the main card, Ramsey Nijem had by far his most impressive performance in the Octagon yet as he absolutely destroyed Beneil Dariush with strikes en route to a first-round TKO stoppage. It was Nijem’s second win in a row and he’ll move up the ladder as it was an incredibly impressive victory in a fight he wasn’t supposed to win. The prop bet on Nijem winning inside the distance cashed at +975, by far the biggest prop on the whole card to hit. If you did bet that one, congratulations because I personally didn’t see that finish coming at all. Jim Alers wins by decision (+193) And finally, in one of the preliminary card bouts, Jim Alers defeated Alan Omer via hard-fought split decision. The fight was ultra close and realistically the judges could have gone either way with it, but I personally did think Alers did enough to win and I’m happy the judges agreed with me. The prop on Alers to win by decision scored at +193, so nice job if you cashed on that one.
