Before you lock in any UFC 235 picks, check out what incomparable MMA expert Kyle Marley has to say. Marley won the first-ever “scoutmaster” UFC betting contest sponsored by MMAOddsBreaker and appears regularly on multiple MMA betting and daily Fantasy shows. He watches every single fight for every single UFC card and does extensive research before each event.
Over the past nine months, $100 bettors who have followed Marley’s picks are up nearly $18,000. It’s an astonishing cash rate that shows the depth of Marley’s knowledge. At UFC Fight Night 145 Prague last week, Marley told SportsLine members that Thiago Santos (-110) would beat Jan Blachowiz by knockout in the main event. That’s exactly what happened, as Santos landed a
third-round flurry to end the light heavyweight fight and give Marley’s followers another easy winner. Also, at the much-anticipated UFC on ESPN 1 two weeks ago, Marley gave followers a strong underdog winner when he accurately predicted Andre Fili (+120) winning by decision over Myles Jury. Now, with UFC 235 fast approaching, Marley has carefully studied every matchup on the card, identified the best value in the UFC 235 odds, and released his MMA picks for every single fight.
In the main event, Marley knows Jones is eager to build on his UFC legacy, despite a career that has been derailed by various legal issues and failed drug tests. Even so, many observers believe he is the most gifted MMA fighter to ever set foot in the cage. Marley also is aware that Smith has overcome his own share of adversity and stunned UFC fans with several upset victories, including one over Hector Lombard and in his most recent win over Oezdemir as a +150 underdog.
