With the holiday weekend in the United States, things are a little quieter than usual on the MMA front. It is not totally dead, though, as we have Titan FC 70 set to go on Friday night, with the event available on UFC Fight Pass. It’s a 7-fight main card that includes a title fight as the headliner. Let’s quickly break down 6 of those fights so you can bet against their Titan FC odds. I am skipping the Alvarez/Boomer fight, as they have just 1 combined pro fight, making it basically a coin flip.
Titan FC 70: Assis Vs O’Shea Betting Preview | MMA Analysis
Johnathan Ortiz (-240) Vs Christian Pugh (+190)
This is a Bantamweight bout that is a little tougher to call given that it is the first professional fight for Pugh, which helps explain why he is in as the underdog. Ortiz lost his first fight as a pro, but he has bounced back with 2 straight wins. You have to like Ortiz to keep the winning streak alive with a victory here.
Slava Borschev (-320) Vs Kendly St. Louis (+240)
The Lightweights are up next and it’s another fight between a pair of men with limited pro experience. Borschev has the better record of the two, having gone 3-1 through his first 4 fights It has been a little lacking in consistency for St. Louis, who is 3-3 overall and coming in with 2 losses in his last 3. I am on Borschev to win by KO.
Denzel Freeman (-600) Vs Duane Crespo (+400)
The big boys are up nest, with a pair of heavyweights entering the octagon in what looks to be a bit of a lopsided bout. Crespo is making the step up into the pro ranks and is going against a fighter in Freeman who has won his first 2 fights, the latest of which was a split decision. I like Freeman to finish this one quickly.
Talita Alencar (-1200) Vs Staci Vega (+650)
You need only look at the odds for this Strawweight bout to see how the bookies think this one will go. Alencar is in as the heavy favorite despite this being her first professional bout. She is, though, facing a fighter in Vega who is still looking for her first win as a pro, going 0-1-1 through her first 2 fights. I’m on Alencar by submission early.
Roybert Echeverria (-210) Vs Andrew Richardson (+165)
This Flyweight bout is one of those fights where something has to give, as both of these men are coming in with an unbeaten record. Echeverria is 4-0 and has seen 3 of those victories come in the opening round. Richardson comes in with the same 4-0 record and has never seen a fight go the distance. Tough one to call, but I am on Echeverria by decision.
Bruno Assis (-135) Vs Shane O’Shea (+105)
It’s title fight time, with both of these men stepping into the octagon to try and nab the vacant Middleweight belt. Assis comes in with a 10-5 record, but he is also on a run that has seen him lose 3 of his last 5. O’Shea is 4-1 overall, but has the benefit of being in form, coming into this one on a 3-fight win streak. I think O’Shea wins by KO as the slight underdog.
