UFC 224 is stacked with lots of fun and name brand UFC fighters seeking to put on a show for the Brazilian audience. Don’t get blinded by the flashy names of the past or the thrilling new prospects — keep a level head when gambling on UFC 224. Below are a few of the best bets, based on numbers, for UFC 224.
John Lineker Is 6-0 In His Last 6 Fights Outside The U.S.
John Lineker is known for being a whirling dervish of violence and aggression who only overwhelms his opponents with his ferocity. Since 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 under the UFC banner bouts held outside the U.S. — four of which happened in his home state of Brazil. Unsurprisingly,”Hands of Stone” entered five of those six bouts as a betting favorite with the lone exception being when he was a +110 underdog vs Azamat Gashimov (yeah, I do not know who that is either).
Together with Lineker laying so much chalk in these fights, bettors have not made a whole lot of money financing the Brazilian — you’d wind up $289.70 if you bet $100 on every one of his six conflicts outside America. However, Lineker remains a great piece of a parlay and this trend also indicates that perhaps you shouldn’t back Brian Kelleher as an underdog in this bout.
Vitor Belfort Is 0-4 In His Everyday 4 Fights As An Underdog
Vitor Belfort’s summit has long since passed “The Phenom” looking like a shell of his former self. And bettors must be careful at the idea of backing him what is supposed to be Belfort’s retirement struggle, as he is 0-4 in his last four as a dog.
That record drops to 0-5 if you add a reduction to Kelvin Gastelum which was finally overturned after Gastelum tested positive for marijuana (yeah, I understand ). In all fairness, Belfort was a pretty hefty dog in most of those fights, so bettors wouldn’t be up a massive sum for fading the Brazilian in those outings.
For a more in-depth look at Belfort’s battles as an underdog, I wrote a bit you can check out. This comprises when fading The Phenom the perfect way to make cash.
