In this article, we will pick out our 3 top plays and give reasons why we like those plays. Best of luck to you and your plays this week!

Amanda Nunes vs. Valentina Shevchenko

This is a rematch between these two ladies and if you watch the first fight, you know that Nunes was completely gassed in the 3rd round. She dictated the pace of the fight through the first two rounds but had nothing left in the tank in round 3. I’m fairly confident that if that fight would of went 5 rounds, Shevchenko would have benefited drastically and would of won the fight over Nunes. Nunes won the striking match in the first fight, but I think we will see a much more improved Shevchenko in this one and I think she will drag Nunes into deep waters. Our top play here is Nunes vs. Shevchenko over 2.5 rounds for -120 for 5 Units.

Curtis Blaydes vs. Daniel Omielanczuk

The main card gives us a match in the heavyweight division between Curtis Blaydes and Daniel Omielanczuk. This fight is on the main card and many feel it should be undercard material. Either way, the UFC brass have made it main card and that gives both competitors a chance to shine on PPV. Curtis Blaydes is 6-1 overall, while Daniel Omielanczuk is 19-7-1. Both of these fighters are durable and I truly can’t see either getting an early finish in this fight. In Blaydes 3 fights in the UFC, he has made it to the 2nd round every fight. Omielanczuk has had 8 fights in the UFC and has made it to the 2nd round in 7 out of 8 fights. I’ll take Blaydes vs. Omielanczuk Over 1.5 rounds for -130 for 2.5 Units.

James Bochnovic vs. Trevin Giles

Two UFC newcomers will step in the cage against each other on Saturday night as undefeated Trevin Giles makes his light heavyweight debut inside the Octagon against 8-1 James Bochnovic. Jitters will most likely get to both of these guys and therefore, I am looking to experience. Giles has fought a much tougher level of competition and he is mutually dangerous in striking as he is in his submission game. I can’t see this fight making it out of the first round, with one of these guys folding under the big lights. I will take Giles vs. Bochnovic under 1.5 rounds +105 for 2 Units.
