The WEC has a show coming up tonight (yes, for reals), which would be a lot more exciting if Paulo Filho was fighting rather than rehabing. But what can you do? At the very least, the WEC has a rep for high intensity action packed matches. So even if you don’t know who half the guys fighting are, you’ll still have a good time.
Since one of our main sources of revenue here is referrals to BetUS, I’d normally break down the WEC card for betting. But that would be irresponsible … well, even more irresponsible than my betting tips for UFC events and other cards I actually know a little about. I can’t bullshit – I don’t know 80% of the guys fighting tonight, and pretending I do wouldn’t really help anyone.
So here’s the deal: You can go to the MMA Analyst for his insight, or check out what the BloodyElbow guys think. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you can pay attention to what Frank Trigg says (although that’s almost as bad as listening to me). But if you’re going to bet, you should do it through BetUS and tell em Fightlinker sent you. I’m running low on ramen noodles and not looking forward to eating cat food!
Here’s the BetUS odds on this show:
Sergio Gomez +180 vs Richard Crunkilton -240
John Alessio +220 vs Brock Larson -280
Ed Ratcliff +110 vs Marcus Hicks -140
Steve Cantwell +120 vs Tim McKenzie -150
Blas Avena +135 vs Hiromitsu Miura -165
Bryan Baker +300 vs Chael Sonnen -380
Doug Marshall +150 vs Brian Stann -180
Okay, maybe I do have some picks of my own. Doug Marshall looks pretty good as an underdog, I think Stann’s more hype than substance. Past that you’ve got reliable bets on guys like Brock Larson and Chael Sonnen (although the odds make betting on them kinda pointless – perhaps some parlay action?). Miura also didn’t look too bad taking Jason Mayhem Miller to a decision, so there’s a gut feeling choice on him. But again, I’m basing this shit on memory and not research.
