There’s a lot of gambling value on UFC 222 (Sat., March 3, 10:00 p.m. ET).
Will the protracted layoff for both Caraway and Zingano hurt their chances at winning?
Can Mike Pyle (+250) complete his career off with a win for bettors?
Due to trauma UFC 222 is missing featherweight champ Max Holloway and that’s a damn pity. Nonetheless, in the co-main occasion, perennial title contender Frankie Edgar will lock horns with surging Brian Ortega to decide who really deserves the following shot Holloway’s gold.
On the ladies side of this division, UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg returns to action to confront UFC newcomer Yana Kunitskaya. Many are asking why is the most important event? I suppose the powers that be sensed fans could be marketed around the joys of watching a lion maul a lamb.
On paper, this looks like a lackluster card however these are those that sneak up on you, and if you enjoy betting on mixed martial arts, this card is stacked with potential gain.
Last week we played it safe and went 1-1 but we still came ahead and that’s what we are looking to do this week using our best bets for UFC 222.

The pay-per-view can cost us around $60, so we’ll need a way to make that cash back. Below are 3 straight bets that are worth taking and we could’ve easily taken more. Even though the chances are hot on Brian Ortega (+160) and Cat Zingano (+132), we proceed in a different way.
BRYAN CARAWAY (+140) vs. CODY STAMANN (-160)
This is a moneyline on BetOnline.ag you quickly need to jump because there’s no way Bryan Caraway (21-7) ought to be an underdog in this battle.
“Kid Lightning” has been on the sidelines the past couple of years because of trauma but let’s not neglect the man total skill set and preceding Octagon success. Do not get me wrong, Cody Stamann (16-1) is no slouch either, ” he upset a high possibility in Tom Duquesnoy in UFC 216, but Caraway will be his toughest opponent to date.
Not only can Caraway induce the speed and maintain Stamann in the grappling department, he has a 68??? achieve benefit in the striking that will let him work his range like he did against Eddie Wineland.
The layoff does not concern me. Caraway is only better regardless of in which this bout goes and that he fights at this a grueling pace that Stamann is going to be ceased.
