    on the Rays tonight. Haven't bet any baseball in like a month but I'm a fan of Cobb and I think the Rays are overall the better team even though Cleveland's been on a nice streak.

    Does anyone else think there's value on Jake Shields at +235 here?

    Also added another $2.00 on Kongo/Godbeer over 1.5 at the improved odds of +135.

    I parlayed him and Klitchko. Def think there's value or him by decision.

    I just think this is a much closer fight than the odds imply. Everybody seems to write off Jake's stand-up ("worst stand-up in the UFC") because it looks horrendous, but in actual fact it is very effective. Shields out-struck Woodley in their fight, and I feel like if it stays on the feet Shields has the advantage in this one. Saying that, if Maia can get it to the ground I think he controls Shields rather easily, however he's going to have to take him down twice out of the three rounds to get the decision.

    Anyone find value in Godbeer at +380? at this point, anyone who can throw a punch stands a chance against Kongo.

    Exactly. If you're going to bet Shields, bet him by decision at +400, he isn't going to finish Maia. Also, if you think it's going to be a close one Shields by split/majority is +1135(!) and Maia by the same is +750. I don't know about you guys but I will be betting both of those; all it takes is another CJ Ross to potentially win serious $ without risking a lot at all.

    I forgot about that. This just raises my confidence level even further.

    I wanted to bet this line but then I took a look at some of Godbeer's fights on youtube...he is terrible. No TDD at all and bad striking defense, on top of that he's not very aggressive at all either so I don't see him somehow rushing Kongo and catching him with a punch. Remember Kongo actually has beaten his fair share of decent opponents so I expect him to take this one fairly easily.

    If there's any value in this fight I think it's O1.5 rounds at +135, I could see Kongo just taking him down and holding him there or peppering him with shots against the cage. Godbeer hasn't fought for over a year and is pretty bad though so approach the line with caution.

    Absofruitly, I agree with everything you said. Don't put your faith in Godbeer to win because he's terrible for this level and just a guy Bellator probably put in there to lose to Kongo so they can preserve him for the PPV or whatever. But Godbeer is best in the stand-up, and worst in wrestling, so the over at + odds is probably good value because Kongo has shown to frequently wall n stall/lay and pray opponents like that. I'm pairing it with another smallish o/u, the u in Silva/Leone, thinking at realistic worst case it protects me from a loss on props like last week, and best case can combine to yield some decent profit.

    That's a bit hyperbolic, don't you think? Roy Nelson and Mark Hunt aren't exactly bums, especially when it comes to throwing big power shots. I don't think I hold those losses against him as much as others do, especially Hunt, he is a legitimately good striker for HW. Also, Kongo damn near finished the monster that is Cain and went to a decision with him. Godbeer has fought nobody of note so far in his 9 fight career, some of those against a couple guys with 0 wins their career and a guy who is 1-8 with all 8 losses by knockout.

    I understand Kongo's striking d isn't great but it would take a lot for me to consider playing a complete unknown over someone who has been fighting the best in the world at HW. If you're wanting to bet Christrum I'd wait until fight night to do it because I anticipate Kongo getting added to a lot of parlays, wouldn't be surprised to see him get up to +450-500, at that point he's worth a flyer since it is HW after all.
