Global warming aside, temperatures across the nation will soon begin to drop as we quickly approach winter, one of what used to be one of four seasons. Fear not, northern-based mixed martial arts betting buffs, as always, the UFC is in action every month of the year and that means many more chances to cash in with bankroll-boosting UFC bets.
This look at the next few UFC fights on tap will help mixed martial arts betting buffs cash in far more often than not.
Wednesday, Oct 09, 2013 – UFC Fight Night 29
Jake Shields +210
Demian Maia -270
Over 4.5 -125
Under 4.5 -105
Analysis: Demian Maia (18-4) has won three straight fights but had to go the distance at UFC 156 in February in order to beat Jon Fitch via unanimous decision. Jake Shields (28-6-1-1) is coming off a split decision win over Tyron Woodley at UFC 161 in June just one fight after testing positive for a banned substance in his previous bout.
The Pick: Demian Maia wins this one handily…by second round KO if you need specifics.
Saturday, Oct 19, 2013 – UFC 166
Cain Velasquez -245
Junior Dos Santos +195
Analysis: UFC 166 is going to be a thriller MMA gamblers! Heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez (12-1) battles Junior Dos Santos (16-2) for the third time and this matchup promises to be absolutely outstanding.
You see, after Dos Santos won the first meeting against Velasquez on a stunning first round KO (punches) at UFC on FOX back in November of 2011, the reigning champ got some much-needed revenge by taking out Dos Santos in a thrilling five round unanimous decision at UFC 155 in December. Now the pair will throw down again and this matchup could very well go either way.
Velasquez comes into this bout riding a three-fight winning streak that includes a pair of wins over Antonio Bigfoot Silva. Dos Santos laid out Mark Hunt in the third round with a spinning heel kick at UFC 160 to get back in the win column after losing to Velasquez in his previous fight.
Saturday, Oct 26, 2013 – UFC Fight Night 30
Mark Munoz +155
Michael Bisping -185
Analysis: Michael Bisping (25-5) has lost two of his last four fights and enters this bout coming off a technical decision against Alan Belcher after poking Belcher in the eye at UFC 159 in April.
Mark Munoz (13-3) has won five of his last six fights, losing only to current middleweight champ Chris Weidman at UFC on Fuel TV in July of 2012.
The Pick: Don’t think twice here MMA gamblers, Munoz wins via decision.
Saturday, Nov 09, 2013 – UFC Fight Night 32
Dan Henderson +220
Vitor Belfort -280
Analysis: Vitor Belfort (23-10) has won two straight, since losing to Jon ‘Bones’ Jones at UFC 152 in September of 2012. Belfort stretched out Luke Rockhold with a vicious spinning heel kick and a slew of punches at UFC on FOX in May.
Dan Henderson (29-10) has lost two straight fights, but both have come via split decisions and against elite opponents in Lyoto Machida (UFC 157) and Rashad Evans (UFC 161). Prior to his last two fights, Hendo had won four straight and I like him to somehow find a way to get the much-needed win against the favored Belfort.
The Pick: Dan Henderson in an upset
So, there you have it MMA gamblers, a string of upcoming UFC bouts that are offering great chances to cash in on!
