Here are my live dogs for Bellator 136: Lightweight title bout: Dave Jansen (+400) vs Will Brooks (-600) Gabe’s Thoughts: I favor Brooks to get his hand raised in this five round main event title fight, as I think he is the superior fighter of the two. He also has a size advantage over Jansen going into this bout. That leads me to my point, which is that Brooks has been having a rough weight cut for this fight, which could play a factor should the scrap reach championship rounds. I think Brooks wins this fight more often than not, but I don’t agree with his current betting price of -600. I think the value here is with the challenger Jansen at +400, so I’ll take a little stab. Gabe’s Call: Will Brooks by Unanimous Decision (49-46, 48-47, 49-47) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Jansen (+400) .35u to win 1.4u Heavyweight bout: Alexander Volkov (-420) vs Tony Johnson (+300) Gabe’s Thoughts: I think Johnson is a real live dog in this spot and could win this fight by either T/KO or decision. I am slightly leaning towars Volkov to pick up the win, as I agree with him being the favorite in this contest, however I don’t agree with the current betting odds. I think the betting value is with Johnson at +300, and normally I would have made a bigger play, but I am opting to keep things on the smaller side for this Bellator card leading up to Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 64 in Krakow, for which I have some big plays. Gabe’s Call: Volkov by Split Decision (28-29, 29-28, 29-28) Gabe’s Recommended Play: Johnson (+300).85u to win 2.55u
