Gerald Meerschaert: +140
Splits: 53% of handle on Meerschaert, 68% of bets on Jotko
The money following Meerschaert is the correct move here. Jotko is a talented fighter, but his last five fights have come down to a decision. He also has a 1-1 record against submissions and he is facing the definition of a specialist. Meerschaert will get the victory early and look for him to lock in a nasty submission.
