UFC 255 Features Title Bouts

ufcUFC 255 will feature two title bouts. One of those is for the women’s flyweight title. Valentina Shevchenko is the current champion, and she will face Jennifer Maia.

Shevchenko is fighting out of Kyrgyzstan and is 19-3. She is the heavy betting favorite, being listed on DraftKings at -1420.

Maia is a Brazilian fighter with a record of 17-6-1. She will be the underdog with a line of +790.

The last fight of the night will be for the men’s flyweight title. The champion, Deiveson Figueiredo, will be going up against Alex Perez.

Figueiredo is the favorite to retain his title with odds of -305. Perez sits at +240.

In the women’s flyweight title bout, the odds are with Shevchenko. She will likely hold on to her belt. At such an expensive price, it may be worth looking into betting on a specific round knockout.

For the men’s flyweight title, there is a pretty good chance of an upset. Look for Perez to make a statement and leave with the belt. As an underdog, this is a great betting opportunity.

Detroit Lions at Carolina Panthers

detroit lionsThe Detroit Lions will be playing on Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. The Lions are the underdogs, with the spread set at +1.5 for Detroit.

It has been announced that Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey is likely to sit out against the Lions because of a shoulder injury. He has missed time all season, which has really hurt Carolina. He was a top fantasy pick for most, and it has been a rough season.

One of the questions for Detroit has been about Matthew Stafford. He has been limited in practice with a thumb injury but has said that he expects to play. Also, he might be getting back Kenny Golladay.

If he does, you might be getting a good price on the spread. With Stafford in the game, I like the Lions to pick up a win against the Panthers.

Because of all of these injuries, the Moneyline and over/under have been delayed in being posted. That will be something to watch and see, along with the status of all of these injuries.
