Final 2010 Record: 115-119-3, +11.25 Units 
Final 2009 Record: 80-82-1, +23.75 Units 

I am putting my 3 night MMA capping hot streak on the line with this card...

My Bellator capping has been absolutely terrible all year long.  I am hoping that I can finally catch a break on this one.

The only play I have locked in on so far is Luis Nogueira (-172) over Marcos Galvao.  Risking 3.45 units to win 2 units.  I wish Pinny had opened this line earlier in the week when other books had this as low as -135, but it is what it is.  I think this line will continue to rise, so if you like Nog, I would lock in now.

More plays closer to fight time...

Yeah, I am a bit surprised by the line movement.  I actually thought Galvao would open as a very slight fav.  The actual opening line and the line movement basically confirmed my Nog lean for me.

I can tell you that Martinez has a strong wrestling background, so he probably can dump Wessel on his back at will.  Whether that will be his strategy or not, we will have to wait and see.  However, I would not want to be laying -400 on any Bellator heavyweight not named Konrad or Thiago Santos.

I cannot really make any strong argument to take Wessel.  My advice would be to sit this one out...

The line on Nog is all over the place at the moment.  I am seeing it as low as -175 and as high as -210.  I am not really too concerned...

after i finished capping the fight, i thought that nog would open at around where he's at now, so when i saw that he opened @ -120 i was some what shocked, and now regret not pulling the trigger.

But I doubt he finishes Galvao ... Line has been dropping on this...it might be worth the play though... If it drops to -150ish I'm laying on that

Damn iPhone ..... I noticed that the wiuff > 2.5 is at -120 which I think is a steal. Isn't it ? I haven't capped this fight hence the lack of bets made but last time I checked wiuff ain't no finisher. Is his opponent a finisher ?

I have no idea what is up with this line movement.  IMO, Vegh has zero advantage in any facet of MMA over Wiuff.  In fact, if it were not for a judge screw job in his fight against Newton which I and one of the judges scored 30-27 for Newton, he would not even be in this fight...

...which makes you wonder, is the "fix" in...

Mr. what do you think of the Ryan Martinez fight at -140 for under 1.5 and over 1.5 at 110.  I'm thinking of taking the over, but it's total hunch...
