UFC on ESPN 38 Tsarukyan vs. Gamrot picks and predictions
Records: Tsarukyan (18-2-0) | Gamrot (20-1-0)
Tsarukyan (-280) will cost more than 2 1/2 times your potential return. That's risky, especially against Gamrot (+210), who has been on a roll lately, too.
This one figures to go long into the night, and should make side bettors nervous for its entirety. In the end, TSARUKYAN BY POINTS (+145) will be the play, snapping his modest 2-bout run with a stoppage.
OVER 4.5 ROUNDS (-145) is a good play if you'd like a little bit of wiggle room in the event of a late Round 5 finish. Yes (-117): Fight to go the distance isn't that much less, so just stick with the Over. This fight should end via unanimous decision in favor of Tsarukyan.
