We are back for another exciting weekend of combat sports for UFC Vegas 36 in Las Vegas. There are a couple spots I feel good about in the props market, but be sure to check out the rest of the FTN crew’s bets FTN Bets Tracker in case we add anything prior to fight night.
As always, I will give the bets that I have placed below based on where I see the most value in the betting odds and how I see each fight matchup playing out. Feel free to hit me up on Twitter or in the MMA betting Discord with any questions that you have leading up until fight night on Saturday.
Here is a look at my favorite betting props for this weekend’s UFC Vegas 34 betting card.
This line was too good for me not to take a small poke at it. I like Paddy Pimblett, but he still has some serious concerns with his striking defense. Vendramini is very explosive and will swing with everything he has early in the fight. If he connects then he likely drops Pimblett here, and the number does not reflect that.
This is a cupcake matchup for Shore. Shore is a legitimate undefeated prospect with some respectable wins at the UFC level. Now he is facing a low-level fighter that could not cut it on The Ultimate Fighter. Shore is going to land takedowns and should be able to cut through him on the mat before earning a finish.
I never get main event matchups right, but this seems like a good spot for Till. He has historically shown good takedown defense, and Derek Brunson’s only path to victory is wrestling heavy. Brunson has been knocked out five times in his career and rocked on numerous other occasions. Till has the power to put him out and if he keeps the fight standing like I expect him to, he will get the knockout.
