Six of the Best: Betting Tips – UFC Fight Night 90: Dos Anjos vs Alvarez
By Owen Phillips 7/7/16 Betting
MMA Files finds you 6 winners from each UFC event with ‘Six of the Best: Betting Tips’. This lineup of fights is the first from UFC International Fight Week, UFC Fight Night 90: Dos Anjos vs Alvarez. This event takes place on Friday (Australian time).
Rafael Dos Anjos ($1.29) vs Eddie Alvarez ($3.66)
The champion Dos Anjos reign as champion has been picture perfect so far. Stunning Donald Cerrone for a quick first defence was a great start and now he is fighting Alvarez who has a style that can nullify opponents. Dos Anjos is very well-rounded and is strong everywhere the fight goes. I think that Alvarez can grind on Dos Anjos for five rounds and get the win in an upset.
Winner – Eddie Alvarez
Derrick Lewis ($2.05) vs Roy Nelson ($1.78)
Lewis has been on roll lately, winning three straight fights. Nelson has struggled recently, in his last fight breaking a three-fight losing streak with a patient performance against Jared Rosholt. Lewis will be doing everything possible to finish Nelson and I think this will give Nelson the chance to catch Lewis and get the victory.
Winner – Roy Nelson
Alan Jouban ($1.70) vs Belal Muhammad ($2.15)
Muhammad makes his UFC debut and he comes fresh of a TKO win on the regional scene. Jouban likes to brawl and this could be a classic battle. I’m leaning towards to Jouban in this one.
Joseph Duffy ($1.27) vs Mitch Clarke ($3.82)
Duffy lost his last fight but was still impressive against Dustin Poirier. Clarke is very talented and knows how to get the job done. I think Duffy will be able to get his hand raised in a close battle.
Winner – Joseph Duffy
Mike Pyle ($1.81) vs Alberto Mina ($2.00)
Pyle keeps on fighting tough guys and looking capable of doing it for a while to come. Mina squeaked a victory in his last bout with Yoshihiro Akiyama that showed his durability. Difficult to pick this one but I’m going with the veteran Pyle to craft a ‘W’.
Winner – Mike Pyle
Gilbert Burns ($1.35) vs Lukasz Sajewski ($3.18)
Sajewski lost to Nick Hein in his UFC debut and I can’t see things getting any easier against Burns who is also coming off a loss. Sajewski likes to grapple but it would be unwise against Burns and I see this as his downfall.
Winner – Gilbert Burns
