There’s a lot of gambling value on UFC 222 (Sat., March 3, 10:00 p.m. ET).
Will the layoff for Zingano and Caraway hurt their chances at winning?
Can Mike Pyle (+250) finish off his career with a triumph for bettors?
Because of trauma UFC 222 is missing featherweight champ Max Holloway and that is a damn pity. However, in the co-main event, perennial title contender Frankie Edgar will lock horns with surging Brian Ortega to choose who truly deserves the following shot Holloway’s gold.
On the women side of the branch, UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg returns to action to face UFC newcomer Yana Kunitskaya. Many are wondering why is the main event? I guess the powers that be sensed fans could be marketed on the joys of seeing a lion maul a lamb.
On paper, this looks like a lackluster card but these are the ones that sneak up on youpersonally, and if you enjoy betting on mixed martial arts, then this card is stacked with potential profit.
Last week we played it safe and went 1-1 but we still came ahead and that is what we’re looking to do this week with all our best bets for UFC 222.

The pay-per-view will cost us around $60, so we’ll need a way to make that money back. Below are three straight bets that are worth carrying and we could have easily taken more. Even though the chances are hot on Brian Ortega (+160) and Cat Zingano (+132), we proceed in another direction.
BRYAN CARAWAY (+140) vs. CODY STAMANN (-160)
This really is a moneyline on BetOnline.ag you quickly need to jump on because there is not any way Bryan Caraway (21-7) should be an underdog in this fight.
“Kid Lightning” has been on the sidelines the last few years because of trauma but let’s not forget about the man’s overall 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 will be his toughest opponent to date.
Not only can Caraway push the speed and keep up with Stamann from the grappling section, but he also has a 68??? reach advantage in the remarkable which should allow him to operate his scope 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 such a grueling pace that Stamann is going to be stopped.
