MMA Betting Preview for LFA 106: Silveira Vs Viana
Mando Gutierrez (-300) Vs William Elliott (+200)
We get the ball rolling with a Bantamweight fight between a pair of fighters in the early stages of their pro careers. Gutierrez got off to a strong start, winning 4 straight, but he is coming off a loss last time out. Elliott is also looking to bounce back from a loss, taking his career mark to 3-1. A good matchup here, but I have Gutierrez by submission.
Trevor Wallace (-500) Vs Bubba Grant (+300)
The big boys step into the octagon next for a Heavyweight bout with one of these fighters looking to remain unbeaten. Wallace comes in with a perfect 4-0 record and wins usually coming quickly. Grant is more experienced, but at 7-6, he has been up and down his entire pro career. I’m on Wallace to stay unbeaten with the KO win.
Genia Goodin (-120) Vs Kathryn Paprocki (-120)
One look at the odds and you can see that the bookies have this Strawweight fight as too close to call. Goodin has started her pro career with 2 wins, with both fights going the distance. Paprocki was 2-0 before losing her last fight, so she will be looking to bounce back here. I like this one to go the distance, with Goodin getting the win.
Cheyden Leialoha (-125) Vs Edwin Chavez (-115)
This is another fight that looks to be very evenly matched in the Featherweight division. Leialoha is 7-2, but his losses have come in his last 3 fights, so he needs this one. Meanwhile, Chavez is a perfect 4-0 and looking to maintain the strong start to his career. I see this one going the distance, with Chavez getting the decision.
Kyle Estrada (-260) Vs Tyler Wilson (+175)
It’s a Bantamweight bout up next, with both fighters looking to snap out of slumps. Estrada is 10-6 in his career, but he has lost back-to-back fights, as well as 3 of his last 5. Wilson is 6-3 but has also struggled of late, losing 2 of his last 3 fights. This is another one that is likely to go the distance, with the slight edge going to Estrada.
Toninho Gavinho (+110) Vs Terrance McKinney (-150)
The co-main event of the night is a Lightweight bout that looks like a great matchup. Gavinho comes in with a 10-4 career mark, as well as a run that has seen him win 3 in a row. McKinney is 8-3 and was able to snap out of a 2-fight losing skid with a win last time out. Fists will fly in this one, with Gavinho getting the KO win.
Joshua Silveira (-300) Vs Rafael Viana (+200)
The headline event of the night is a Light Heavyweight bout featuring a pair of fighters off to fast starts in their pro careers. Silveira is off to a 4-0 start and has looked dominant in each of those fights. Viana is coming off the first loss of his career after getting out to a 6-0 start. I am on Silveira to get the win via submission.
