Will Cormier Win By TKO/KO?
In our UFC 252 preview, I picked Daniel Cormier to win this fight, and do so by late stoppage or a decision if he does follow a wrestling heavy game plan.
If he does just that, the best path for a finish is ground and pound TKO. Although Cormier does have submission wins, Miocic is solid on the ground and I don’t believe will get submitted.
This fight is one of the hardest for me to call in a long time. I can see a path to victory for both, but I do think Cormier gets it done. I think a decision win is more feasible than many think – but at +250 there is a ton of value there and I think it is a solid bet.
Pick: Daniel Cormier by TKO/KO (+250)

Sean O’Malley to Win By 1st Round TKO/KO
Out of all the boosted bets, this is the one I am most interested in.
Entering this fight, the majority of pundits including myself believe O’Malley gets it done. But, the big question is will he be able to finish the fight. Marlon Vera has never been finished before – but O’Malley is something special and could easily land the knockout punch.
O’Malley told me in the lead up to the fight he believes he can get that first-round stoppage. Before the boost at +290, I don’t know if I would have bet it. But, now at +350, I think the price is right to take a stab at it and see if the hype is real and if O’Malley can make it three first-round finishes in a row.
The only other boosted odds I think is worth a stab is Vinc Pichel by TKO/KO or points. Although I am picking Jim Miller to win, the only way Pichel wins this fight is by TKO/KO or a decision. So, with this boosted odds you get him at +120 instead of his moneyline of -132 at FanDuel.
But, the two daily odds boosts I like are Daniel Cormier by TKO/KO and Sean O’Malley to win by 1st round TKO/KO.
