Main Event Play: Sean O’Malley by Decision (+100 at DraftKings)

This is a rematch in which Chito was the previous victor. However, O’Malley suffered a foot injury early that completely changed the fight. That said, there is a reason O’Malley is such a heavy favorite in the rematch.

We all know that he possesses serious KO power, but Chito has yet to be finished in his 32-fight career. We expect him to avoid the big shots from O’Malley but is likely to get peppered by jabs that will allow O’Malley to ultimately pick up the decision victory.

Top Play: Jailton Almeida (-110 at DraftKings)

Honestly, we cannot believe the discount we are getting here. No disrespect to Curtis Blaydes, he is one of the most athletic heavyweights in the division. However, Almeida is an absolute wrecking ball that has great stand-up and can take things to the mat and dominate there as well.

He is on a 15-fight winning streak. Curtis is 3-2 over his last 5 fights but that is deceiving. His win over Aspinal was due to Aspinal suffering a fight-ending leg injury. Blaydes also defeated Chris Daukaus who has been KO’d by what seems like 8 of his last 10 fights.

Top Prop Play: Kevin Holland vs Michael Page Fight to GTD (-150)

We expect this one to be an absolute battle. Holland has been finished just 4 times in his 35 fights while Page has been stopped once in his 23 fights.

Holland has the advantage in the grappling and will likely be looking for submissions if things get to the ground. They both have long reaches which could cause this one to stay in the standup at a distance.

Other Leans:

Petr Yan (-115 at Caesars)

Kyler Phillips (-210 at BetMGM)

Michel Pereira (-148 at Draftkings)

Gilbert Burns (+145 at PointsBet)

Dustin Poirier (+190 at Caesars)
