Betting MMA Totals for the UFC on Fox event on Jan 28, 2017

Bet the UFC on Fox event for Saturday, January 28, 2017.

Last week, we went 2-1 at Bet USA Sports in our MMA total plays for Bellator 170, with our only loser coming in one of the most boring fights in the history of MMA, Gracie vs. Kato.

I don’t even want to talk about how boring that fight was other than to tell you I fell asleep during the second round, woke up mid way through the third round and went to refill my glass of tea during the fight.

As a avid MMA fan, that never happens in my house. Needless to say, the fight went over 1.5 rounds and we lost that 1 play. We did win our other 2 so we were profitable and this week, we have UFC on Fox with some decent money plays on tap.

Marcos Rogerio De Lima vs. Jeremy Kimball for UFC on Fox

OK, so this fight is a late replacement fight for Marcos Rogerio De Lima. He was originally scheduled to fight UFC newcomer John Phillips but Phillips was injured and forced the UFC matchmakers to search for another opponent.

They found one right in Colorado in Jeremy Kimball. Kimball is on a 4 fight win streak and since they wouldn’t have to fly him in, the UFC took a chance with this guy. Hold it right there…..he is fighting a very dangerous striker in Marcos Rogerio De Lima, who also has a decent submission game to go along with the superb striking.

De Lima has 13 of his 14 wins by finish. Kimball has 12 of his 14 wins by finish. I highly doubt this one makes it out of the 1st round. Play 2 Units on the UNDER 1.5 rounds at -200!

Rafael Assuncao vs. Aljamain Sterling

This is a fight of 2 guys, both coming off a loss and looking to get back in the win column and contention for the UFC bantamweight title. Assuncao is coming off a loss to title contender TJ Dillishaw. Aljamain Sterling is coming off a loss to title contender Bryan Carraway.

Both of these guys NEED this fight. That being said, they are both VERY tough to finish. Sterling has never been finished in his career and Assuncao has only been finished 2 times in 28 fights and the last time was in 2011! I think this fight goes the distance! Play 1 Unit on the OVER 2.5 rounds at -265.

Jason Gonzalez vs. JC Cottrell

The last fight we are giving out this week is between Jason Gonzalez and JC Cottrell in the Lightweight Division. Both of these guys are relatively new to the UFC and still trying to make a name for themselves.

Jason Gonzalez made his UFC debut on short notice back on September 10 and was knocked out by Drew Dober. JC Cottrell also made his UFC debut on short notice back on July 23 against Michael Prazeres and went the distance in that fight. JC Cottrell has finished 13 opponents out of 17 wins.

11 of those finishes are submissions. Gonzalez has got all 10 of his wins by finish and it should be noted that he has NEVER gone the distance in a fight (Official fight not including TUF). This fight has finish written all over it.

No way I can see this fight going the distance. Play 2 Units on this fight to go UNDER 1.5 rounds at +175.
