Saint Preux vs Hill Betting Preview

Ovince Saint Preux enters as the No. 15 light heavyweight and in his previous fight knocked out Alonzo Menifield. He is 3-3 in his last six fights and has faced some big names in his career but has never been good enough to defeat the top talent he has gone up against.

The 37-year-old is big, strong and athletic, and can either throw bombs or take the fight to the ground and attempt submissions. Only six fights in UFC history have been ended via the Von Flue choke—and Saint Preux has pulled off four of them. 

 

Hill is coming off an impressive first-round knockout of Klidson Abreu in May but that was declared a no-contest after Hill tested positive for marijuana. Frankly, I don't care about that—especially since Hill took that fight on short notice.

As far as I'm concerned, the 29-year-old is 8-0, including 2-0 at the UFC level. Hill is a southpaw that prefers to stand up and rely on his power punches but he does a good job of setting those up with jabs and front kicks.

Saint Preux vs Hill UFC Prediction and Betting Pick

PREDICTION: Saint Preux to win +148 - Despite his KO of Menifield, Saint Preux is not the most impressive striker. As a matter of fact, he's usually not an impressive fighter at all. That said, OSP is a guy that can grind out wins in a variety of ways and has far more experience than Hill. 

Hill might have better boxing but Menifield was supposed to have the same advantage and was starched with one punch. Hill won't enjoy the size advantage he had against Abreu and will be in trouble against the more well-rounded Saint Preux in the clinch and on the mat.

Keep in mind that in each of Saint Preux's last three wins – against Menifield, Michał Oleksiejczuk and Tyson Pedro – he entered the octagon as an underdog. Back him at plus money again.
