Written by on November 23, 2018

If you’re an MMA betting enthusiast that is looking for some fun-filled action and great betting value, then you’re going to find both on the quickly approaching UFC Fight Night 141 card.

You see, with the world’s top MMA organization set to make its debut in China on Saturday morning, you’re going to get a pair of expert picks on the top two fights on the UFC Beijing card.

With both heavyweight affairs looking like big-time brawls just waiting to happen, let’s get to my expert UFC betting picks right now.

UFC Fight Night 141 Beijing Odds & Preview

Curtis Blaydes (10-1) vs. Francis Ngannou (11-3)

  • Francis Ngannou +190
  • Curtis Blaydes -235
  • Over 1.5 -120
  • Under 1.5 +150

32-year-old Cameroon native Francis Ngannou stands 6’4” and has an 83-inch reach. Unfortunately, he’s seen his status as a top contender take a big hit recently, thanks to consecutive unanimous decision losses to former heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic and Derrick Lewis. Now, Ngannou is quite desperate heading into this rematch bout.

27-year-old Illinois native Curtis Blaydes stands 6’4” with an 80-inch reach. He’s won four straight and comes into this bout off a phenomenal third round TO (elbows) win over Alistair Overeem at UFC 225 in June. Now, Blaydes is out for revenge.

Prediction

While Frank Ngannou is in the midst of his biggest struggles in his career and Curtis Blaydes is riding high right now, I’m going to encourage you to back the now, underdog Ngannou to beat Blaydes for the second straight time. Ngannou defeated Blaydes via second round TKO due to doctor stoppage in April of 2016 when both were little more than mere prospects and I believe he’s going to duplicate that feat out of sheer desperation, if nothing else. It might not be the popular pick, but it’s the right pick. Francis Ngannou wins as a value-packed underdog.

UFC Fight Night 141 Pick: Francis Ngannou via Third Round TKO

Alistair Overeem (43-17) vs. Sergey Pavlovich (12-0)

  • Alistair Overeem +110
  • Sergey Pavlovich -130
  • Over 1.5 -125
  • Under 1.5 +105

38-year-old Dutch native Alistair Overeem stands 6’4” with an 80-inch reach. He’s looking to bounce back from consecutive stoppage losses to Francis Ngannou and Curtis Blaydes in his last two fights. Russian native Sergey Pavlovich stands 6’3” d comes into this bout off a first round TKO (punches) win over Kirill Sidelnikov a year ago.

While Sergey Pavlovich is favored to win this bout over the older Alistair Overeem, I’m going to advise you to back the veteran underdog it is affair.

Overeem has a huge edge in experience and a ton of motivation to not be put out to pasture after dropping two straight coming into this affair. While Overeem is susceptible to getting his ass beat every now and then, he’s also got some excellent KO power and knows how to finish, which is why he’s my pick to get the win over Sergey Pavlovich, who will be making his UFC debut in this affair. I’ going with Overeem as a value-packed underdog and you should too.
