UFC Betting - Dos Santos-Carwin Headline UFC 131 In Vancouver UFC Predictions - After Belmont Stakes betting wraps up on Saturday, online wagering players should switch their attention to the UFC, as UFC 131 will feature a trio of solid fights, even though the biggest PPV draw in the company, Brock Lesnar, had to drop out of his fight due to injury.
UFC Betting – Saturday, 10:00 PM ET
Junior Dos Santos vs. Shane Carwin
Dos Santos (12-1) is UFC Odds favored at -165 in this heavyweight clash against Carwin (12-1), who stepped in for the man who gave him his first professional loss, Lesnar. Someone is going to get knocked out in this fight as both fighters are known for their one-punch power, but Carwin struggles when he’s on the mat because he can’t submit high-level opponents, as he proved against Lesnar. Dos Santos is a jiu-jitsu artist who hasn’t had to show off his submissions, but he can do it if he needs to. Dos Santos should be the next in line to face injured champion Cain Velasquez, so he is the smart UFC Predictions play here. UFC 131 Results
Kenny Florian vs. Diego Nunes
Florian (14-5) is a massive -300 UFC Odds favorite against Nunes (16-1), who won his UFC debut against Mike Brown in a matchup of former WEC fighters. Florian will be the first fighter in UFC history to be active in four weight classes as he drops down from lightweight to featherweight, so it’ll be interesting to see how his body reacts to yet another weight cut. Nunes is a well-rounded fighter, but he doesn’t want this fight to go to the mat, because Florian has a huge advantage thanks to his black belt in jiu-jitsu. This should go the distance, but Florian is the play in your pay per head sportsbook. Bet on UFC Click Here.
Demian Maia vs. Mark Munoz
In this middleweight tilt, Munoz (10-2) is a -130 UFC betting Odds favorite against Maia (14-2), who is arguably the best grappler in the company. He will try to take this fight to the mat, because Munoz may have the heaviest hands in the 185-pound division. Maia has shown that he has problems with strikers, but champion Anderson Silva is more technical than Munoz, who is powerful, and while Maia has improved his striking since losing to Silva, he probably still isn’t good enough to hang with Munoz while the two are on their feet. On the other side of it, Munoz is working his way up the ranks in jiu-jitsu, but he wants no part of Maia on the ground as Maia can submit you in any different number of ways. It’s an intriguing fight, but Maia had his shot at the belt, and it is Munoz’s turn. UFC Predictions Bet on Mark Munoz in your sports betting onlinepicks.
