UFC Fight Night 91


Fight Night 91 came on the heels of the organizations announcement that it was sold for over $4 billion dollars.  Good morning and welcome back to HRWager.  With UFC coming into a phase of transition, this is one of the first events after the news broke.  So how did the fighters do to place the onus back on the in ring product?  So without further ado, let us look at what transpired yesterday.

Fight Night 91 : “Hands of Stone”

John Lineker rises above it all.  He dispatched in furious fashion an opponent many more inches in height above him.  They do not call John the “Hands of Stone” lightly!  He pounded Michael McDonald and floored him twice to collect the knockout victory.  Sensing the momentum, he took hold of the microphone and announced that he was coming for Dominick Cruz.  Bantamweight division just got much more interesting last night.


Lando Vannata’s Arrival

Other big news involved a fighters first bout with UFC.  Not only was this pressure on him but the added exertion of being a step in with only three weeks notice.  There are some situations where a person acquits himself so well in the ring that he can overcome initial losses.  This was the case with Vannata last night.  Quickness combined with sheer moxy got him to win the opening round in his fight with Tony Ferguson.  Eventually he would be choked out to lose but Lando’s loss is very much contributed to a lack of complete preparation.  That little time made it hard to prepare for the submission moves.  He just ran out of gas and into the tap ending move.  Still Lando Vannata has the potential we like and should be an interesting fighter to rail or fade in his future fights.

Consider matches like those last night as scouting for the events ahead.  Go back and watch the videos if you missed the broadcast.  Not only entertaining but it will place you ahead of the curve when it comes to profit for future UFC PPV events.  Good fortune and we will see you next time here at the HRW.




CFL Steam Alert : Hamilton-Montreal 7/14

CFL Steam Alert : Hamilton-Montreal 7/14

CFL Free Pick

A CFL Steam Alert has been issued for this week. Canadian Football league action has four distinct nights of play this week with Ottawa starting off with a win at Toronto last night.  Now there has been a key injury to one of the stars of the Montreal Alouettes.  This team had been overachieving so far to start the season.  Now with their key cog out for Friday nights game against Hamilton, how has the market corrected itself?  Find out the answer to this question and if there is still time to hop on the profit bandwagon right now here at HRWager.

CFL Steam Alert : Kevin Glenn Gone

Most of the reason why Montreal is 1-1 at the start of the season is Kevin Gleen.  Alouettes’ Nation is surprised at the progress this signal caller has made since training camp.  Preseason saw MTL try out 8 different signal callers before giving him the job.  Well, Kevin has missed practice the last three days with an eye infection.  Now the reigns of the offense is being given to Rakeem Cato.  Even though he has gotten the snaps with the first team these last few days, this is an extreme drop off for the Alouettes offense in this one.

7/15 @ 7:30 PM

Now we look at the game.  Opening line had Montreal as a one point favorite.  When speculation broke that problems with the eye started to surface, the line started to shift.  It has been a pretty steady flow of speculation down only one path.  Now Hamilton is the two point road favorite here.  Totals have also dropped with the news.  49 to 47 points has it dropped too.  This is sharp money that is acting on the information.

Good fortune to all of us.  There is still room to get in on this train.  After the line hits Hamilton -3, the value might be gone.  Pounce on our CFL Free Pick and take Hamilton minus the points on July 15th.
