UFC 224 is piled with plenty of fun and name manufacturer UFC fighters seeking to put on a display for the Brazilian audience. Don’t get blinded by the flashy names of the past or the exciting new prospects — keep a level head when gambling on UFC 224. Below are a few of the very best bets, based on amounts, for UFC 224.
John Lineker Is 6-0 In His Last 6 Fights Outside The U.S.
John Lineker is famous for being a whirling dervish of pure violence and aggression who simply overwhelms his opponents with his ferocity. Considering joining the UFC in 2012, Lineker is 11-3 with all the company but what is most impressive is his performances outside the USA.
Lineker is 6-0 beneath the UFC banner bouts held outside the U.S. — four of which took place in his home state of Brazil. Unsurprisingly,”Hands of Stone” entered five of the six bouts as a gambling favorite with the only exception being when he had been a +110 underdog vs Azamat Gashimov (yeah, I don’t know who that is either).
With Lineker putting so much chalk in these fights, bettors have not made a whole lot of money backing the Brazilian — you would be up $289.70 in the event that you bet $100 on every one of his six fights outside America. However, Lineker is still a great piece of a parlay and this trend also suggests that maybe you shouldn’t back Brian Kelleher as an underdog in this bout.
Vitor Belfort Is 0-4 In His 4 Fights As An Underdog
Vitor Belfort’s peak has long since passed “The Phenom” looking like a shell of his former self. And bettors must be cautious at the idea 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 in the event that you add a reduction to Kelvin Gastelum which was eventually overturned after Gastelum tested positive for marijuana (yeah, I understand ). In all fairness, Belfort was a fairly hefty dog in the majority of those fights, so bettors would not be up a massive sum for evaporating the Brazilian in those excursions.
For a more detailed look at Belfort’s battles as an underdog, I wrote a piece you can check out. This includes the perfect way to make money when evaporating The Phenom.
