DraftKings Sportsbook Odds/Predictions

Tiuiulin: +110
Pickett: -130

Splits: 61% of handle, 58% of bets on Pickett

Tiuliulin (10-6) has the experience edge here, but he’s a fighter that needs fights to stay in the stand up. His ground game is pretty basic and he struggles with guys that will attempt to wrestle him or come in for takedowns. Pickett (13-7) is still finding his footing in the UFC, he’s 2-3 since earning a contract with a win on Dana White’s Contender Series. He hasn’t shown any powerful striking so far, but he looks capable on the ground.

Pickett will try to do level changes, slick entries and anything else he can do to get Tiuliulin on the ground and keep him there. This won’t be pretty, but should be enough for Pickett to win by decision.
