There’s a good deal of gambling value on UFC 222 (Sat., March 3, 10:00 p.m. ET).
Will the extended layoff for both Zingano and Caraway hurt their chances in winning?
Can Mike Pyle (+250) complete off his career with a win for bettors?
Because of injury 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 truly deserves the next shot at Holloway’s gold.
On the women side of this branch, UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg returns to action to confront UFC newcomer Yana Kunitskaya. Why is the most important event, many are wondering? I suppose the powers that be sensed fans could be sold on the joys of watching a lion maul a lamb.
On paper, this looks like a card however these are the ones that sneak up on youpersonally, and if you like betting on mixed martial arts, this card is stacked with potential profit.
Last week we played it safe and went 1-1 however we came forward and that’s what we’re looking to do this week with our best bets for UFC 222.

The pay-per-view will cost us about $60, so we’ll need a way to make that cash back. Below are three straight bets that are worth taking and we could’ve easily taken more. Although the odds are hot on Brian Ortega (+160) and Cat Zingano (+132), we go in a different direction.
BRYAN CARAWAY (+140) vs. CODY STAMANN (-160)
This is really a moneyline on BetOnline.ag you immediately need to jump because there’s no way Bryan Caraway (21-7) ought to be an underdog in this fight.
“Kid Lightning” has been on the sidelines the last few years because of injury but let’s not neglect the man total skill set and previous Octagon success. Don’t get me wrong, Cody Stamann (16-1) is no slouch either, ” he recently upset a top prospect in Tom Duquesnoy at UFC 216, however Caraway is his toughest opponent so far.
Not only can Caraway induce the pace and maintain Stamann in the grappling department, he has a 68??? reach benefit in the striking that will let him work his range such as he did against Eddie Wineland.
The layoff doesn’t concern me. Caraway is just better no matter where this bout goes and that he fights at this a grueling pace that Stamann will be stopped.
