How To Bet Oliveira vs Tsarukyan

Take a deep breath, because this bout could be off-the-wall wild. Let's start by anticipating lots of action. Do Bronx is a madman, and his last five fights have ended UNDER 2.5 rounds. Tsarukyan has finished his last two brawls, including an emphatic KO of Beneil Dariush in early December.

This fight will be thrilling, but how well Arman puts Charles on his heels will determine how the fight goes early on. Oliveira, frankly, is a terrible defender; he's all heat, all the time, and Tsarukyan's offensive wrestling could put the Brazilian in a compromising spot (think the Islam submission at UFC 280). 

Of course, the bout could be settled within one of Charles' heavy blitzes, though Tsarukyan has upped the complexity of his striking arsenal lately. 

Oliveira vs Tsarukyan Pick

Picking this fight is like choosing your favorite child — you probably have one, but it's painful to admit it.

Oliveira is a UFC legend with plenty more to give, but Tsarukyan's aggression, conditioning, and wrestling base make him a tough customer for anyone.

I'll be backing inside the distance, with a value pick on him to win by submission.

Pick: Tsarukyan Inside the Distance (+100); UNDER 2.5 rounds (-210); Value Bet Tsarukyan by submission (+600)
