The results are in and Cage Prophet scores another perfect 100% on bets for Bellator 182. Overall, Bellator 182 was a very exciting event with a few surprises along the way. Bruna Ellen pulled off a slight underdog upset (+135) over Veta Arteaga, and AJ Mckee went the distance with Blair Tugman. McKee vs. Tugman was a betting favorite to finish under 1.5 rounds.
Friend of the Cage Prophet Podcast: Fernando Gonzalez, finished Brennan Ward by submission in the third round. We bet this fight to go over 1.5 rounds at +100 because Fernando gets stronger as the fight goes on while Brennan will fade. Typically Brennan’s fights don’t make it past the first round, but didn’t think this fight would follow that pattern. Cage Prophet suspected that Fernando, being the seasoned vet that he is, would drag Brennan out of his comfort zone into the later rounds where he would look to finish the fight on a gassed out Ward. The sharp play paid, and Fernando won by third round submission.
In the main event Andrey Koreshkov defeated Chidi Njokuani by first round TKO. Koreshkov may have been the safest and best value bet on the card at -285 but I tend to get scared off by heavy favorites, I’m personally not a big fan of risking a lot to make a little when anything can happen in a fist fight (Looking at you Luke Rockhold). But still I laid a little cabbage and got the return. What was your favorite fight on the card?
