Thompson, Gates Among Best Value Bets For The Ultimate Fighter Finale: American Top Team Versus Team Blackzilians Event

Posted by on 7/10/2015 11:10:10 PM

The stage is set for the finale of the first season of The Ultimate Fighter to feature two rival teams going up against one another as everything comes crashing down at The Ultimate Fighter Finale: American Top Team vs. Team Blackzilians. The card for this event is absolutely loaded as fighters from both teams look to cash in with the chance to not only defend their pride but earn some money in the process. Here is a look at the best bets on the board for The Ultimate Fighter Finale: American Top Team vs. Team Blackzilians.

Welterweight Bout

(30-9-0) Jake Ellenberger vs. Stephen Thompson (10-1-0)

Ellenberger’s win over Josh Koscheck hasn’t convinced anybody that he deserves the benefit of the doubt heading in to this tilt against a proven opponent in Thompson who has recorded four straight wins including a victory over Patrick Cote in his last fight. Ellenberger had dropped three straight losses before finally bouncing back with the victory over Koscheck but he will be in a lot tougher against Thompson especially considering the latter’s power. Thompson has showcased his power with a pair of knockout wins over his streak of four straight victories and he should be able to extend his win streak either by knockout or decision in this fight.

Pick: Thompson -220

Welterweight Bout

(28-9-0) Jorge Masvidal vs. Cezar Ferreira (9-4-0)

The fact that Masvidal is making the move to the welterweight division is a major surprise to some fans but considering his strengths it could end up working out for him. Masvidal packs a ton of power and while he is coming off a loss to Al Iaquinta he had won three straight bouts before that defeat and he looks more than likely to bounce back in his next tilt. Ferreira has lost two of his last three fights and he is likely in line for another loss when he goes up against a much more dangerous and complete opponent in Masvidal.

Pick: Masvidal -280

Women’s Strawweight Bout

(12-4-0) Michael Waterson vs. Angela Magana (11-7-0)

Waterson is coming off her first loss in more than five years but don’t let that make you doubt her in any way heading in to this bout against Magana where she will be a substantial favorite to say the least. Waterson’s knockout power makes this fight a good candidate for a knockout finish as she looks to hand Magana her fourth-straight loss in what projects to be another lopsided matchup in the women’s division.

Pick: Waterson -600

Bantamweight Bout

(14-4-0) Russell Doane vs. Jerrod Sanders (14-3-0)

Doane is looking to bounce back from his first loss since 2013 and there is every reason to expect him to get back on track in this matchup versus Sanders. Doane is the more complete fighter and he is catching Sanders at the perfect time with the latter trending in the wrong direction after consecutive losses.

Pick: Doane -400

Bantamweight Bout

(13-4-0) Darrell Montague vs. Willie Gates (11-5-0)

There isn’t much value picking winners throughout this card especially with Waterson and Doane likely to win as overwhelming favorites but Gates is an option here at decent odds since he is listed as the underdog. Gates had won five straight fights and certainly looked like a rising star in the bantamweight division before his loss to John Moraga and he is worth taking a chance on Montague in this spot.

Pick: Gates +120
