UFC Vegas 47 Hermansson vs. Strickland betting advice
A very nice payday for us on UFC 270, so much so I am deciding to try a subscription service for February. One payment grants you access to every bet for the entire month. 5 bets to start off, Enjoy!
Jack Hermansson (+175) vs. Sean Strickland (-210)
On top of Sean Strickland riding a 5 fight win streak, he might be one of the best follows on Twitter, the guy is a mad man. In a fight against Jack Hermansson being a mad man is exactly what you need to do.
Hermansson tends to get frustrated when he is constantly pressured. Smothering pressure with clean striking is Sean Strickland's game. Hermansson may have an advantage on the ground but Strickland has a great takedown defense, to date, he has defended 82% of takedowns.
To sum it up, the overall pace and pressure of Sean Strickland is going to be too much for Jack to handle. Sean Strickland straight is my only play in the main event.
Bet: Sean Strickland (-210)
Punahele Soriano (-190) vs. Nick Maximov (+160)
Punahele Soriano vs Nick Maximov is a classic striker vs grappler match up. When comparing the strength of schedules Soriano seems to have fought tougher opponents. Maximov has fought some guys with horrible records and no experience themselves. My guess why the line set Maximov as an underdog.
However, If Maximov can get a hold of Soriano and keep him on the ground this fight should be good as ours. Plus people seem to sleep on Maximov's striking ability. Love the value of Maximov as an underdog here. Gotta ride with the Diaz Academy.
Bets: Nick Maximov (+160)
Shavkat Rakhmonov (-235) vs. Carlston Harris (+190)
On the record of saying this already, immediately became a fan the first time Shavkat Rakhmonov walked out in that electric hat. Since his debut, we have been betting on him, and that train does not stop today.
Rakhmonov is an undefeated killer, entering his third UFC fight with a record of 14-0. Now to some, (-235) is a steep line, you may want to start to look at prop plays here. Rakhmonov to win inside the distance is (-115) basically even money.
Some sportsbooks offer "to win by finish", highly recommend taking that play as well. The moral of the story is, don't care how you do it, just bet on Shavkat Rakhmonov.
Bets: Shavkat Rakhmonov (-235)
Shavkat Rakhmonov to win inside the distance (-115)
Under 1.5 rounds (+110)
