UFC Fight Night to Bring Excitement to Las Vegas

UFC Fight Night Picks and Predictions
Kai Kara-France vs. Amir Albazi (-110/-110)
Albazi looks to prove himself against one of the best fighters in the bantamweight division, Kai-Kara France. With Albazi trying to push the pace of the fight with his grappling and striking, France’s 87 percent takedown defense and dangerous strikes should keep Albazi at bay. As France is a known commodity, betting on him at over 2.5 rounds on PointsBet (+128) is a wise choice.
Don’Tale Mayes vs. Andrei Arlovski (-140/+115)
Mayes is a tough fighter to bet on, with concerns surrounding his fight IQ and gas tank. Arlovski, who is older but more technically sound, should win most of the striking exchanges and will likely grind out a decision. However, this fight is likely to go the distance at -152 on FanDuel, with an Arlovski victory by decision at +200 on Bet365.
Jinh Yu Frey vs. Elise Reed (-135/+110)
Favored only once in her five UFC fights, Reed faces Jinh Yu Frey, who is likely to be the cleaner boxer this evening. Reed’s takedown defense has failed her in the past, which could be an issue against Frey. Frey is worth betting on at +115 at Caesars Sportsbook.
UFC Fight Night Prop Pick
John Castaneda by submission +850 (BetRivers) | by submission in rounds two or three +1700 (FanDuel)
Though Castaneda is being underestimated against Muin Gaferov, his submission abilities shouldn’t be overlooked. With six of his 19 wins by submission, including three of his last four finishes, Castaneda should be watched for when shooting for double or single legs.
