Aljamain Sterling vs. Renan Barao: Bantamweight
The UFC’s former bantamweight king Renan Barao (-130) began his UFC 214 betting life with a favorite tag of -130, before spending a solid amount of time in underdog territory around +115. Following some late money in his direction, Barao has bounced back to Favoriteville, around -130, where his line originally opened up at. Aljamain Sterling opened up with a minor favorite tag of -110, and drifted further down the minus line to around -135, before the Barao bets bumped up Aljo up to a dog tag of around +120.
Tyron Woodley vs. Demian Maia: Welterweight Title
Who out-grapples Tyron Woodley? Jake Shields, you say? Shields was able to clinch Woodley up against the cage, you say? True, but Shields was chipping away the whole time with knees to the body. Demian Maia can definitely clinch up with Woodley against the fence, but to expect Maia to be scoring with strikes in the process seems to be a bit of a stretch. This is the 1st time Maia has faced one-punch KO power in a really long time, and hasn’t gone 5 rounds in over 2 years. Tyron Woodley @ anything under -200 is a solid pick.
Renato Moicano vs. Brian Ortega: Featherweight
For the love of God, Brian Ortega by Submission @ +505 is a sports gambler’s dream.
