UFC 224 is piled with plenty of fun and name brand UFC fighters looking to put on a display for the Brazilian crowd. Do not get blindsided with the flashy names of yesteryear or the thrilling new prospects — keep a level head when betting on UFC 224. Here are some of the best bets, according to numbers, for UFC 224 on May 12.
John Lineker Can Be 6-0 In His Last 6 Fights Out The U.S.
John Lineker is known for being a whirling dervish of pure violence and aggression who only overwhelms his rivals with his ferocity. Considering joining the UFC in 2012, Lineker is 11-3 with the organization but what’s most impressive is his performances outside the USA.
Lineker is 6-0 under the UFC banner bouts held outside the U.S. — four of which happened in his home country of Brazil. Unsurprisingly,”Hands of Stone” entered five of those six bouts as a gambling favorite with the only exception being when he was a +110 underdog vs Azamat Gashimov (yeah, I don’t know who that is ).
Together with Lineker laying so much chalk in those fights, bettors haven’t made a whole lot of money financing the Brazilian — you’d be up $289.70 if you wager $100 on every one of his six conflicts outside America. However, Lineker is still a great bit of a parlay and this trend also suggests that perhaps 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 summit has long since passed with”The Phenom” appearing like a shell of his former self. And bettors must be cautious at the notion of backing him in what is assumed to be Belfort’s retirement struggle, as he is 0-4 in his last four as a puppy.
That record drops to 0-5 if you add a loss to Kelvin Gastelum that was eventually overturned after Gastelum tested positive for marijuana (yeah, I understand ). In all fairness, Belfort was a fairly hefty dog in most of those fights, so bettors wouldn’t be up a huge amount for evaporating the Brazilian in these outings.
For a more in-depth look at Belfort’s struggles as an underdog, I wrote a piece you’ll be able to check out. This comprises the perfect way to make money when fading The Phenom.
