Back to back clean sweeps on the underdog isn’t an easy task, but I think we can do it again at UFC 241… do you?
<div><h2 style="text-align:center">The Dogs Odds</h2><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/fighting/int/ultimate-fighting-championship/paulo-costa-vs-yoel-romero-3850804/?mtid=126" target="_blank" title="Paulo Costa vs Yoel Romero Odds Board"><strong>Paulo Costa vs Yoel Romero</strong></a></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>UFC 241 takes place on Saturday 17th August live from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Betting Tip: 0.5u on Paulo Costa @ 2.45 <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in the game with Coral">with Coral</a></strong></p><p>The fan-boy inside of me is bursting right now, UFC 241 has Paulo Costa and Yoel Romero taking place two fights before the main event! The main card is stacked, but the underdogs are few and far between this week.</p><p>Fading the ‘Soldier of God’ might not sound like the best move but believe me, UFC 241 is full of heavy favourites and for good reason… this card is ram-packed with “killers”.</p><p>The fight between Costa and Romero can’t be ignored, especially when I can grab odds of 2.45 on the younger, faster, up and coming middleweight who basically looks like a younger version of Yoel Romero himself. The strength and body size of the two are mirrored, both guys have knockout power and realistically the only thing separating the fighters would be Yoel Romero gains the advantage in UFC experience.</p><p>Look, I’ve followed Romero since his debut in 2013 and haven’t bet against him once. In his two losses to current champion ‘Robert Whittaker’ I stayed off altogether because I believed Romero had a great shot at Bobby Knuckles. Now we’re here, UFC 241 and Romero doesn’t have much to fight for in terms of direction… He’s lost to the champ twice, a win versus Costa will not give him a 3rd shot… In fact, it’s quite possible Romero could retire at any point, he’s 42 years old and will not be able to hang around the youth on the roster for much longer.</p><p>I don’t want to see the downfall of Yoel Romero, he has entertained us for years but there will be a time when he passes the torch on and I think Paulo Costa is the perfect fit to put out Romero’s flame.</p><p>As mentioned in my ‘<a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/ufc-weight-classes-rising-stars/89716/" target="_blank">UFC Rising Stars</a>’ article for <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/fighting/" target="_blank">Odds Market betting tips page</a>, Costa has barely seen 10 minutes in a fight but given Romero’s toughness… it will be interesting to see if Costa’s power will be too much for Romero to handle. Personally, I think Costa will not only defeat Romero but he’ll follow suit from his previous wins and get the job done inside the distance to mark himself as the first-ever fighter to put Romero out inside a UFC octogen.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;PAULO COSTA!

If that doesn’t give you enough confidence to back the new blood of the Bantamweight division well, I don’t know what will.</p><p>Casey Kenney Is no push-over but loves to grapple. Exchanging transitions on the ground might have worked well for Kenney in his previous bout against Ray Borg but Manny is huge for the division and will not be easily manipulated with a wrestling output from Kenney. If anything, Kenny should be looking to win a striking battle… it’s a long shot given Manny has the size and reach advantage but scrambling on the floor with Manny is only going to give him multiple opportunities to sink in his patterned triangle choke or something similar.</p><p>I much prefer Manny and his chances to land a submission than I do over any other underdog on the card, I already placed a bet on the Manny Bermudez money line but for the sake of you guys… I’ll be playing him again. Let’s smash the bookie for a three-week clean sweep, shall we?</p><p>When I share this week’s full predictions Manny Bermudez will be backed twice… I do NOT advise this play, only place a bet on him once.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Manny Bermudez put Bendy Casimir to sleep w/ a Triangle early in R1 at Cage Titans 35 (2017) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/UFCOrlando?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#UFCOrlando&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/UFConFOX28?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#UFConFOX28&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/GKPRoeFWXy\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/GKPRoeFWXy&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— LORD HONKY HUMUNGUS (@Mr_Honky) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/Mr_Honky/status/965689492601319424?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;February 19, 2018&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p><strong>Some statistics below you may find interesting:</strong></p><ul> <li>Bermudez won his previous 6 fights by submission</li> <li>Bermudez is undefeated 14-0</li> <li>Kenney has never been finished</li></ul><p><strong>Prediction:</strong> 0.5u on Manny Bermudez @ [2.35] [11/8] [+138] <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="Top rated bookmaker">with Bet365</a></p><p> </p><p style="text-align:center"><em>UFC 241 takes place on Saturday 17th August live from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
