UFC Fight Night 206 Holm vs. Vieira picks and predictions
Records: Holm (14-5-0) | Vieira (12-2-0)
Fight result (2-way line or money line)
Holm, often known as “The Preacher’s Daughter,” should be eligible to return to the ring with a win against Vieira (-260). If she can amass a few wins, she will be well-positioned for another championship opportunity.
However, risking more than 2.5 times your prospective return is a poor investing strategy.
PASS, and instead focus on the victorious strategy.
HOLM ON POINTS (-113) is a much more economical play.
Four of her past five fights and six of her previous eight have ended in a draw. It has taken the judges three times to decide a winner for Vieira in her previous three bouts, and six of her eight fights since she debuted at UFC level have gone the distance.
It’s a safe bet that this fight will end in a draw, but betting No (-260): The cost of a long-distance fight here is simply too high.
