UFC 258 Usman vs Burns
"Successful bettors know every detail in regard to the fighters they intend to wager upon."
Alright, UFC 258 is up next. Usman has already defeated most of the middleweight contenders with Gilbert Burns remaining as the last legimate threat. The rest of the card is a good one for bettors and handicappers, a true fight picker's dream with some good money-making opportunities.
Zewkey's UFC 258 Picks
Kamaru Usman VS Gilbert Burns
Usman is the better striker and will control the ring as long as he stays standing, which is likely considering his excellent wrestling and perfect record against takedowns. Most everyone agrees Burn's only advantage is in the submission game, but that's negated by Usman's ring control. I suspect the price for Usman will get higher as the night goes on, so I'm down early with tickets in the pocket.
Kelvin Gastelum vs Ian Heinisch
Gastelum's record is decieving, he's not only fought some really killers, he's been very competitive. I'm not saying Heinisch is an easy opponent, but he's unproven at this level. Kelvin is a crisp and clean boxer with enough wrestling to take advantage of Heinisch.This event screams parlay and that's exactly the way to play it. I feel like both these bets are fairly safe and combining them gets us a better payout.
