We’re back with another action-packed fight card. This week we’ll be covering Bellator 237 so, let’s delve into our weekly accumulator/parlay betting predictions, are you ready for this week’s Bellator fight tips?
<div><h2 style="text-align:center">Bellator Welterweight Bout</h2><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Michael ‘Venom’ Page vs Shinsho Anzai</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Bellator 237 takes place on Saturday, December 28th at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan</strong></p><p>Bellator’s poster boy; Michael Page will have his chance at another high-light reel finish in Japan when he faces former UFC fighter Shinsho Anzai.</p><p>Page has been an asset to the Bellator brand with his flamboyant style and spectacular fight-ending moments. Since making his Bellator debut in 2014, Page has 9 fight-ending finishes with 8 of those coming by way of knockout or technical knockout. With his only loss coming against current</p><p>champion Douglas Lima; It’s safe to say that Page is one of the most dangerous strikers in the Bellator Welterweight division.</p><p>Shinsho Anzai has a world of experience but his fight activity has a lot to be desired. Now aged 34, it’s hard to picture Anzai dreaming or even contemplating a successful MMA career at this point. He’s taking this fight on behalf of Rizin and Is almost being used a guinea pig in order to give the fans what they want… which is a Michael Page highlight reel segment.</p><p style="text-align:center">&lt;iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/_cFn1hs_kIQ" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;</p><h2>Bellator 237 Page vs Anzai Prediction</h2><p>Anzai is the perfect matchup for Page, he doesn’t offer much in terms of technical offensive striking where Page will thrive. The size advantage should also be noted, Anzai is going to struggle to land a punch on Page and if he expects to creep on the inside, I’m sure Page will greet him with a knee or two. There haven’t been many men, who have survived the striking onslaught that Page puts on his opponents and I don’t see much changing in this fight.</p><p>We’re presented with your classic ‘striker vs grappler’ matchup with the striking advantage for Page having a huge skill level gap in comparison to the grappling for Anzai. Page’s speed will be too much for Anzai, Page will put on a striking clinic and I can’t visualise any other outcome. It would take a huge mistake for Page to lose this one and the price reflects that.</p><p><strong>Bellator Accumulator betting tip 1: Michael Page [1.13] [-775] @ <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 Today!">Bet365</a></strong></p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%;height:12px" /></a></p><h2 style="text-align:center">Bellator Flyweight Bout</h2><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Kana Watanabe vs Ilara Joanne</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Bellator 237 takes place on Saturday, December 28th at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan</strong></p><p>Self-pro-claiming yourself as ‘Ayra Stark’ is corny, and calling out the Bellator champion when you haven’t proven yourself is even worse, but deciding to take a fight in Japan against an undefeated prospect like Kana Watanabe might be Ilara Joanne’s dumbest decision if she wants to call out champions.</p><p>Kana has made a huge impact on the female MMA scene in Japan; with 8 professional MMA wins (majority by KO or Submission) she could make her mark on the Bellator fans that haven’t seen Rizin’s female talent. Kana has a finish rate of 63%, she’s a former Judo world champion and remains undefeated. A tough task for Ilara to say the least…</p><p>Ilara made her Bellator debut against Bec Rawlings, who was subsequently a UFC throwaway much like a small sample size of the Bellator roster. Ilara found success and won the fight via submission. Her Jiu-Jitsu game is strong and no doubt, she’ll be looking to implement that against Kana.</p><p style="text-align:center">&lt;iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/PsXewNeqkow" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt;</p><h2>At the end of the day</h2><p>Kana should have no problem taking this fight to the ground, with her top-heavy pressure and constant ground strikes I’m confident that she’ll be able to handle Ilara in that area.</p><p>When comparing the girl's striking ability then Kana also takes advantage in my opinion. Her power has dropped multiple opponents in the past. She looks comfortable striking at range or in the pocket where she can land some heavy counter-strikes.</p><p>I believe the undefeated Rizin star will continue her streak on Saturday, Ilara is tough but doesn’t pose enough threat for me to worry on behalf of Kana.</p><p>Let’s wrap-up our final accumulator/parlay of 2019 with Kana Watanabe.</p><ul> <li>Accumulator betting tip 2: Kana Watanabe to win [1.57] [-174] @ <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 Today!">Bet365</a></li> <li>Accumulator betting tip 3: Goiti Yamauchi to win [1.33] [-290] @<strong> </strong><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 Today!">Bet365</a></li></ul><div> </div><h2>Punching Parlay Wrap Up</h2><ul> <li>Michael Page [1.13]</li> <li>Kana Watanabe [1.57]</li> <li>Goiti Yamauchi [1.33]</li></ul><p>Parlay/Accumulator Odds: [2.40] [+140] with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 Today!">Bet365</a></p><p>Stake: £100</p><p>Returns: £240</p><p>The Weekly Punching Parlay is documented and traceable through our fighting section on the <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/fighting" target="_blank" title="More Fighting Tips">Odds Market website</a>.
