Marco Polo Reyes (+300)
I think Mexico’s Reyes has a legitimate chance to earn the victory in this UFC lightweight bout, so I definitely like him at around +300. James Vick’s striking defense isn’t really good, nor is his ability to absorb punches, so I would not be surprised if Reyes gets a stoppage after landing a few big punches along the way. You have to really like the underdog at around 3-to-1.
Demian Maia (+110)
When this fight was first announced, I was leaning Maia, and I haven’t changed my mind since. I think Maia will have success taking Masvidal down, and he could either tap him or grind him out for three rounds. That said, Masvidal could be a threat if this goes deep, but I truly believe Maia is smart enough to stay out of trouble. I like Maia at slightly underdog odds.
