Parlay Dog Bet for UFC on Versus 2: Munoz and Gomi

By Paul Friday, July 23, 2010
The UFC on Versus show isn't the greatest set of fights ever but, any fight with Jon Jones is worth watching in my opinion. In terms of betting opportunities I see a two dog parlay that provides some fat odds and pretty decent expected value.

Parlay (+748): Munoz over Okami (+165) and Gomi over Griffin (+220)

Mark Munoz (8-1) has found his pace with three straight wins and is the picture of who Okami has lost to in the past (Sonnen and Franklin). Mark's strength is his ground 'n pound and wrestling and although that's Yushin's game too, anyone who starts strong and keeps the pressure on can take control of the fight.

Yushin Okami is very strong but not as good of a wrestler. Okami has 10 UFC fights at this point but only 3 top level opponents at 185 and he lost to 2 of them. I think Okami is too slow to start in his fights and overrated due to his size and power.

If  you don't like the full parlay bet, Munoz is my top underdog bet for this event and a worthwhile single bet.

Takanori Gomi (31-6) definitely saw his heyday in Pride but in this match up he is being heavily undervalued at +220. Gomi's experience, speed and heavy hands were overwhelmed in his last fight, by Florian's long jab and technique. Against Griffin, he will be able to find his distance and work his typical style of fighting...Fireball.

Tyson Griffin (14-3) is coming off his latest bump in the road Evan Dunham. Where size and distance were his down fall. Tyson's other real loss come from the speed and boxing of Frankie Edgar. Tyson's answer to quick boxing is his wrestling. unfortunately, I think Gomi's wrestling is as good as Griffin's and his hands may be the heaviest he has ever faced.

With parlay odds of +748 you don't need to go big to see a nice payoff, just $50 would net you $374.
