Free UFC 140 Pick For Saturday December 10, 2011
Lyoto Machida (5.00) vs. Jon “Bones” Jones (1.25); Total 3.5 Rounds
UFC 140: Machida vs. Jones takes place Saturday December 10 from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. How impressive has Jon “Bones” Jones been? For his career Jones is 14-1 with his only loss from a disqualification due to an illegal kick on Matt Hamill. Technically Jones has never lost a MMA fight. Granted Jones hadn’t faced the stiffest competition early in his career but that is normal. However, in his last three fights Jones has wins over some good fighters in Rampage Jackson, Shogun Rua, and Ryan Bader. Not only has Jones won these fights but he has controlled them from the start and dominated each of these opponents almost for fun. There is no doubting that Jon “Bones” Jones is the real deal. As for Lyoto Machida he is coming of a KO (front kick) of Randy Couture at UFC 129. Prior to that fight Machida had lost two in a row to Shogun and Rampage. Machida will be in tough vs Jones for the Light Heavyweight Championship.

I like Jones to dominate this fight and finish it early. Betting on Jones to win at 1.25 (or -500) is not an option for me as I don’t bet big favorites (and neither should you). Instead I am looking to the prop bets for this fight at 5 Dimes Sportsbook. As I said I think Jones can finish this fight quickly and that is what I am going to bet on. Jon “Bones” Jones is paying 4.25 (+325) to win in the first round at 5 Dimes Sportsbook. And Jon “Bones” Jones is paying 5.00 (+400) to win in the second round at 5 Dimes Sportsbook. I am going to risk a half a unit on each of these outcomes above. To win this bet Jones must win the fight (by any means) either in the 1st round or the 2nd round. 9 of Jones’ 14 wins have come in either the 1st or 2nd round. Obviously, we can only win one of these bets but if either bet is a winner we make a nice little profit given the high odds for either of the outcomes.
#1: Taking Jon “Bones” Jones To Win in the 1st Round @ 4.25
#2: Taking Jon “Bones” Jones To Win in the 2nd Round @ 5.00
