UFC 222 Predictions & Picks: Everyone Pyle On!

There is a good deal of betting value on UFC 222 (Sat., March 3, 10:00 p.m. ET).
Will the layoff for both Caraway and Zingano hurt their chances?
Can Mike Pyle (+250) complete off his career with a triumph for bettors?
Due to trauma UFC 222 is missing featherweight champ Max Holloway and that’s a damn shame. However, in the co-main event, perennial title contender Frankie Edgar will lock horns with towering Brian Ortega to choose who really deserves the next shot at Holloway’s gold.
Over on the women side of the division, UFC Women’s Featherweight Champion Cris Cyborg returns to action to face UFC newcomer Yana Kunitskaya. Why is the main event, many are asking? I suppose the powers that be sensed lovers could be marketed on the joys of watching a lion maul a lamb.
On paper, this looks like a lackluster card however these are the ones that sneak up on you, and if you enjoy gambling on mixed martial arts, then this card is stacked with potential profit.
Last week we played it safe and went 1-1 however we came forward and that is what we’re looking to perform this week with all our best bets for UFC 222.

The pay-per-view can cost us about $60, so we’ll need a way to make that money back. Below are three straight bets that are worth carrying and we could have easily taken more. Even though the odds are hot on Brian Ortega (+160) and Cat Zingano (+132), we go in another way.
BRYAN CARAWAY (+140) vs. CODY STAMANN (-160)
This is really a moneyline on BetOnline.ag you immediately want to jump because there’s not any way Bryan Caraway (21-7) should be an underdog in this battle.
“Kid Lightning” has been on the sidelines the last couple of years because of trauma but let’s not forget about the man’s overall skill set and previous Octagon success. Don’t get me wrong, Cody Stamann (16-1) is no slouch either, he recently upset a top prospect in Tom Duquesnoy at UFC 216, however Caraway will be his toughest opponent so far.
Not only can Caraway induce the pace and keep up with Stamann from the grappling department, he also has a 68??? achieve benefit in the remarkable which should let him operate his range like he did against Eddie Wineland.
The layoff does not concern me. Caraway is just better regardless of in which this bout goes and that he fights at this a grueling pace that Stamann is going to be stopped.
