It was a fabulous night for us in the fight game last weekend. We cashed two nice plus-money wagers as Erin Blanchfield, and Jamall Emmers both took care of business. Our lone loser on Jim Miller at +190 didn't stop us from having a very profitable night.

This will be the 1st 5-round fight for both Krylov and Spann. Many are playing one side or the other to come out victorious via KO/TKO, but we believe there is enormous value in playing the decision at almost 5:1.
Krylov has only been KO’d once in his career, and Spann just 3 times in his 28 professional fights. We are expecting both men to try to hold back a bit early in order to have enough in the tank for the later rounds.
With that being unfamiliar territory for both, we could see what would normally be an absolute slugfest early turn into a sloppy 5th round, with both men having little in their tanks remaining.

Mayes is facing Augusto Sakai, who has had a really rough past 4 fights. In fact, all 4 have ended with Sakai losing via KO/TKO.
Overeem took him out in the 5th, Rozenstruik finished him in the 1st, and Tuivasa and Spivac each ended it in the 2nd. Mayes has picked up over half of his wins via KO/TKO and will be working with a decent reach advantage.
Mayes’s boxing work will serve him well in this one, and should be able to put away a Sakai that may still have confidence issues after those last 4 losses.
Best Available Odds: -114 and +215 at Unibet
The Monkey King has a unique fighting style that has proven successful in 10 of his 12 professional fights. We last saw him against Paddy, where he fell via submission.
He will look to bounce back here against Victor Martinez, who will be making his UFC debut. Those jitters that come with a debut and trying to prep for a very quirky-styled opponent are going to have Martinez in a tough spot.
We like Leavitt to get it done via submission, as Martinez has 2 of his 4 losses coming that way, and Leavitt has 6 of his 10 wins in the same fashion. However, we recommend playing the money line and half of that amount on the submission.
