Good day fight Enthusiasts. We can’t tell you how elated we are to have completed a tremendously profitable NFL campaign for GambLou.com NFL Clients. We are fresh and ready to fire as we waltz into a three month period where we devote 110% of our attention to the UFC until they drop frozen rubber for Puck Playoffs. The nature of the yearlong UFC schedule allows us to pursue this passion we have for pugilism 24/7/365. Our passion for the fight game is unmatched.
Last week we served up a 3-0 + $605.00 UFC weekend as dynamic dogs dropped deep deposits on us and readers. However, last week is history and in this game we call Profitable Sports Gaming it’s “What have you done for us lately Louie?” So we look to tonight’s card in order to cash on a couple of capable canine’s.
UFC 2016 5-7 + $185.00
(All GambLou.com releases are understood to be a standard and hypothetical $100.00 per position unless otherwise stated. We employ $100.00 to easily track results as every GambLou.com release is accounted for each Monday AM. Public accounting allows us to display bottom line profitability while providing our readers with 110% disclosure).
Lobov -125 vs. White +115
Throw down! We’ll side with longer, taller, younger man who has more ways to win that just move forward and hurl haymakers.
White +115 (half)
Borg -255 vs. Scoggins +235
This should be an interesting clash of MMA styles. Borg the accomplished grappler wrestler steps in against Scoggins who offers stand-up striking, power and a deadly kicking game. Scoggins is the bigger, taller fighter with a 3” reach advantage in both arms and legs. Scoggins wrestling is improving as is Borg’s striking for each is in need of development where the other owns advantage. ‘Styles make fights’ as our mentor Angelo Dundee always claimed and the victor here will be decided based on where this fight takes place. Scoggins wants to stand and strike while Borg needs to grope, smother and grind his opponent on the mat. Fights hit the mat usually so we will have to see if Scroggins can overcome the takedowns and return to his advantage…..stand up warfare.
Scoggins +235 (half)
Burkman -155 vs, Noons +145
This may be one of the better fights to view this evening. Both men in this one will want to batter their opponent bloody. Burkman enters as the chalk off two straight losses and a no contest will be the man with more ways to win as he does sport some wrestling/grappling ability. Noons will want to make this a stand up striking affair and Burkman may just acquiesce. Noons will be the bigger guy in there tonight having faces what we feel is better past competition. Striker…
Noons +145 (half)
Spencer -130 vs. Pyle +120
Sean Spencer enters this fight off a decision loss to Cathal Pendred, a fighter we feel is really and with all due respect a journeyman. While the decision Spencer dropped was a poor one the fact that he allowed a slow meticulous grinder like Pendred to stay in the fight is all we need to understand. Mike Pyle is 40 years old but no UFC slouch. Pyle is off two straight losses and is fighting for his UFC future. Desperation in a fighter often delivers to us the kind of focused mindset we feel we can convert into ‘best effort’. Mike Pyle will be so much the larger man in the Octagon yet he’ll also be on the wrong end of the speed matchup. Pyle will want to smother Spencer and grind him to pulp while Spencer will want to float, stick, move and peck away at the craftier more well-rounded fighter in Pyle. Pyle’s IS going to get his hands on Spencer.
Pyle +120 (half)
Nelson -150 vs. Rosholt +140
Roy ‘Big Country’ Nelson is a fighter that has survived for years on punching power and his opponent’s ability to underestimate him based on physique….or perhaps lack thereof. While Roy is less underestimated now he is as aged and brittle as Ol’ Uncle Louie. There simply ‘comes a time’ when one’s utility (most especially in the fight game) has been extinguished. Jared Rosholt brings a style of fight that both fans and the UFC despise. Rosholt knows not to stand and bang with Roy, he knows that if he takes this fight into the second round his path to take downs and the groping, grappling maul that is wresting from the top position comes into play. This is the plan and we see it working marvelously. A boring, grinding, grappling affair is our request and a mangy mutt dropping deposits we hope is the result.
Hendricks -255 vs. Thompson +235
Hendricks opened up -385 for this fight and we believe the ‘Makers were spot on based on the fighters, their competition and their styles. Fast forward to this AM where droves have been wagering on Wonderboy thus compressing the price to Johny -215 and now the recent flow back on Hendricks.
Thompson is a genuine striking machine who’s blows snap with the speed and po of a whip and decent power goes along with a kind that long, that athletic and this experienced. Thompson is the taller man, the longer man but his level of competition in no way resembles that of Johny Hendricks. Wonderboy’s length, reach and striking ability are dynamic weapons yet this is not the first time Hendricks has been in there with a taller, longer man that can strike with both hands and feet. We see Hendricks as one hell of a dangerous fighter tonight. He’s a guy that in previous fights has been looking to get his KO punch back yet has been unable to do so instead opting for a grappling smothering style of fight that as stated above does not please fans nor the UFC. One look at the competition Hendricks has faced is all we need to know about this fight. Johny Hendricks is going to walk down Wonderboy like he is Wonder bread. Hendricks will touch Stevie on the chin and determine his level of interest in going five full…..something we see as highly unlikely. We did take Hendricks earlier at -210 right after our radio spot with Gabriel Morency on the Fight Network this week yet as we release this the value of current pricing on the ‘Big Rig’ is escaping us. In our view Hendricks is highly motivated to make a statement tonight to the UFC, to the fans and to the division but we are uneasy playing a chalk at anything higher than current pricing.
