Hello fellow degenerates! I'm going to try to make this a regular feature from now on (I've said this before, but I really really mean it this time), even though I'm not 100% sure exactly what it'll be. I'm sure most of the time it'll turn into non-sensical rambling about my terrible bets. Before I get into the bets, I just want to remind you that I am truly awful at betting on MMA. I do stupid parlays with guys I've never heard of, or parlays with way too many fighters. I talk myself into betting on things that will never happen because "you never know." I don't do research, and sometimes I bet on people thinking they're someone else.  I am in no way telling you that you should follow my picks, and you're probably an idiot if you think you're going to make money off of them. I'm going to try to keep a running tally of my picks record and my unit count so you can all point and laugh.

Looking over the card, I'm probably not going to bet on these Fight Pass prelims because I am definitely not watching that bullshit.

Moving to the TV prelims, 3 out of 4 where the favorite is less than -160... perfect opportunity for some silly parlays. Daniel Spitz (+115) is making his UFC debut against Mark Godbeer (-145) who is 0-1 in the UFC, and then Iuri Alcantara (-115) fights Luke Sanders (-115). I'm gonna parlay Godbeer and Sanders with 1 unit at roughly +215. I'll also parlay Mirsad Bektic (-650) over Darren Elkins (+425) with Marcin Tybura (-155) over Luis Henrique (+125) at about -110 for 2 units. Bektic inside the distance at +130 for 1 unit sounds good too.

Moving on to the main card, I REALLY love Mark Hunt at +115 against Overreem (-145), so I'm putting 2 units on that alone. I'm also going to go with Woodley at +130 with 1 unit. And then just for fun, I'm going to parlay all my main card picks  (Hunt, Lando, Rashad and Woodley) with 1 unit for +696. I might end up throwing in some prop bets on fight day, so check us out @UntitledMMA on twitter for updates on that.
