Bellator 241: Pitbull vs Carvalho
Daniel Weichel vs Emmanuel Sanchez
- Bellator Odds: Weichel +130 / Sanchez -150
Weichel is not short on experience. Daniel has fought 51 times. He’s won 40 of those bouts. But in recent fights, he hasn’t stepped it up. Weichel is 1-2 in his last couple of bouts. Expect the 19-4 Sanchez, winner of 6-of-7, to take this fight.
Bellator Betting Pick: Emmanuel Sanchez
Paul Daley vs Sabah Homasi
- Bellator Odds: Daley -390 / Homasi +305
42-17-2 Paul Daley brings massive experience into his battle with Sabah Homasi. Since losing 3-of-4, Daley has won 2 in a row. But although he’s the big time chalk, Homasi could challenge him here. At 13-8, Homasi doesn’t have the experience Daley has. But he performed great in his last fight, a TKO over Micah Terrill in 17 seconds. Give Homasi a chance.
Bellator Betting Pick: Sabah Homasi
Matt Mitrione vs Ronney Markes
- Bellator Odds: Mitrione -170 / Markes +145
MMA fans know the name Matt Mitrione. At one time, Mitrione dominated opponents. He even beat Fedor Emelianenko and Roy Nelson in back-to-back fights. Nowadays, Matt’s treading water. He heads into this battle on a 3-match losing streak. Still, Mitrione faces an opponent over which he towers. Back Matt.
Bellator Betting Pick: Matt Mitrione
Anatoly Tokov vs Fabio Aguiar
- Bellator Odds: Tokov -1010 / Aguiar +705
Does Aguiar have any shot versus Tokov? Tokov is 28-2. He’s also versatile. Anatoly has won via submission, knockout, and via decision. It’s hard to swallow the odds, but Anatoly looks like a sure thing.
Bellator Betting Pick: Anatoly Tokov
Nick Newell vs Zach Zane
- Bellator Odds: Newell -210 / Zane +175
Newell offers low odds to take down Zach Zane. The 16-3 favorite lost to Manny Muro via decision in his last bout. He did beat Corey Browning back in August. Zane is 11-7. He’s gone 2-2 in his last 4 bouts. That gives Newell the edge.
Bellator Betting Pick: Nick Newell -210
Patricio Pitbull Freire vs Pedro Carvalho
- Bellator Odds: Freire -860 / Carvalho +610
On paper, it looks as if Pedro Carvalho can hang with Patricio Freire. Carvalho is 11-3. He’s got 4-inches on Pitbull. But Freire is 30-4 and hasn’t lost since 2016. Also, look who beat him back then? Benson Henderson. Pitbull’s experience against top competition should be too much for Carvalho. Go with Freire.
