Do you already miss football as much as we do? The season always seems to take forever to roll around, and then it's gone in a flash. Time does indeed fly when you're having fun and cashing tickets.
The octagon was a bit unkind to us last weekend, as we finished with a 1-2 record. Rodriguez vs. Emmett didn't go the distance, and Alex Volkanovski couldn't pull off the upset over Makhachev. Blake Bilder salvaged a nice win for us at +125 odds to keep us from a major loss.
Thankfully, we have some UFC action this weekend to soothe the pain. Check out our best bets for Andrade vs. Blanchfield. Let's keep cashing those tickets! Best of luck with your action!
Best Available Odds: +116 at FanDuel
Andrade is 4-1 in her last 5 fights, with her sole loss coming at the hands of the champion, Valentina Shevchenko. Andrade has shown she has some of the top hands in the division, with ones that pack serious power.
Her only recent losses have been to the top-tier talent of the division. Here, she is facing Erin Blanchfield, who we believe is more than capable of living up to her hype.
Blanchfield has superior grappling/wrestling skills in this matchup, and we believe that is the path to victory that she is going to take. Even if she tries to stand and strike with Andrade, she will feel the power and move to this plan of attack.

Jim Miller has been written off by oddsmakers for years now. However, despite his age, he is on a 3-fight win streak and is facing a young Alexander Hernandez who is just 1-3 over his last 4 fights. Over his last 2, Alex lost by submission to Renato Moicano and by KO/TKO to Billy Quarantillo.
Miller has resurrected his career and shown that he has serious power in his weather hands and, of course, has the IQ to pull off submission victories. We foresee this one getting done by finish yet again for Miller over Hernandez here.
Best Available Odds: +135 at DraftKings
Emmers is facing the undefeated Khusein Askhabov. Oddly enough, the undefeated Askhabov is only a slight favorite here against Emmers.
Maybe it’s because the only losses Emmers picked up recently were against 2 of the top guys in the division, Pat Sabatini and Giga Chikadze. We believe this line is too short here for us to pass up the underdog play here.
Emmers is looking to make a statement after his recent losses and superior talent. Here he gets his opportunity, and we believe he will make good on it.
