UFC 224 is piled with plenty of fun and name manufacturer UFC fighters looking to put on a show for the Brazilian crowd. Do not get blindsided with the flashy names of yesteryear or the thrilling new prospects — maintain a level head when betting on UFC 224. Below are some of the best bets, according to amounts, on May 12 for UFC 224.
John Lineker Can Be 6-0 Inside His Last 6 Fights Out The U.S.
John Lineker is famous for being a whirling dervish of pure violence and aggression who simply overwhelms his rivals with his ferocity. Since joining the UFC in 2012, Lineker is 11-3 with the organization but what’s most impressive is his performances away from the USA.
Lineker is 6-0 under the UFC banner in bouts held outside the U.S. — four of which happened in his home state of Brazil. Unsurprisingly,”Hands of Stone” entered five of the six bouts as a betting favorite with the only exception being when he had been a +110 underdog vs Azamat Gashimov (yeah, I do not know who that is ).
Together with Lineker laying so much chalk in those fights, bettors haven’t made a ton of money financing the Brazilian — you’d wind up $289.70 in the event that you bet $100 on each of his six conflicts outside America. However, Lineker remains a wonderful bit of a parlay and this trend also suggests that maybe you should not back Brian Kelleher as an underdog in this bout.
Vitor Belfort Is 0-4 In His Everyday 4 Fights As An Underdog
Vitor Belfort’s summit has long since passed with”The Phenom” looking like a shell of his former self. And bettors must be careful at the notion of backing him what is assumed to be Belfort’s retirement fight, as he is 0-4 in his last four as a dog.
That record drops to 0-5 if you include a reduction to Kelvin Gastelum that was finally overturned after Gastelum tested positive for marijuana (yeah, I understand ). In all fairness, Belfort was a fairly hefty dog in most of those fights, therefore bettors would not be up a huge amount for evaporating the Brazilian in these outings.
For a more in-depth look at Belfort’s battles as an underdog, I wrote a piece you can check out. This also includes when fading The Phenom the best way to make money.
