  • See the three best props for this event

The main event of UFC Fight Night 151 (aka UFC Ottawa) sees Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone take on Al Iaquinta in a pivotal lightweight matchup. The card also sees several Canadians compete along with several ranked fighters.

Here are the three prop bets I’m most confident in.

1) Shane Burgos Stops Cub Swanson

Although many are picking Cub Swanson to win this fight, I am rather confident in Shane Burgos to win, and not by decision,t but win by stoppage.

Burgos vs Swanson Method of Victory Odds

Method of Victory Odds
Burgos by KO/TKO/Submission/DQ +190
Burgos by Decision +200
Swanson by KO/TKO/Submission/DQ +475
Swanson by Decision +250
Draw +6600

*All Odds Taken 05/04/19

The prospect has several knockout wins on his resume, plus some submission wins as well, while Swanson has been submitted and knocked out before, and is riding a three-fight losing streak.

At +190, the odds can make you some money, and is a prop I am rather confident in,

2) Brad Katona Wins by Decision

Not only should you bet on Brad Katona to win by decision, but betting him straight up as an underdog makes a ton of sense.

Dvalishvili vs Katona Method of Victory Odds

Method of Victory Odds
Katona by KO/TKO/Submission/DQ +450
Katona by Decision +240
Dvalishvili by KO/TKO/Submission/DQ +375
Dvalishvili by Decision +120
Draw +6600

Frankly, I can’t wrap my head around him being an underdog, as he is one of my locks to win on this card, and I think he showcases all his skills and wins by unanimous decision at the end of it.

Katona has a good chance to be a top contender at bantamweight and this will be another stepping stone in the process. However, Dvalishvili is a tough opponent which is why I think by decision is the most likely option.

3) Theodorou vs Brunson Goes the Distance

Given I believe Elias Theodorou wins this fight, it is rather obvious I am taking the prop to win by decision as well.

Odds Theodorou vs Brunson Goes the Distance

Will Theodorou vs Brunson Go the distance? Odds
Yes -200
No +150

He hasn’t finished a fight in years, and I believe he will do what he always does, which is outpoint his opponent and really take over in the third.

Brunson will try and knock Theodorou out to no avail, and Theodorou will grind out a decision win.
