There is a good deal of betting value on UFC 222 (Sat., March 3, 10:00 p.m. ET).
Will the protracted layoff for the two Zingano and Caraway hurt their chances at winning?
Can Mike Pyle (+250) complete his career off with a triumph for bettors?
Because of trauma UFC 222 is overlooking featherweight champ Max Holloway and that’s a damn shame. However, in the co-main occasion, perennial title contender Frankie Edgar will lock horns with surging Brian Ortega to choose who really deserves the following shot at Holloway’s gold.
Over on the women side of the division, UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg contributes to action to confront UFC newcomer Yana Kunitskaya. Why is this the most important event, many are wondering? I guess the powers that be sensed fans could be marketed on the joys of seeing a lion maul a lamb.
On paper, this looks like a lackluster card but these are the ones that sneak up on youpersonally, and if you like betting on mixed martial arts, then this card is stacked with potential profit.
We played it safe and went 1-1 however we still came ahead and that’s what we are looking to perform this week with our best bets for UFC 222.
