Splits: 80% of handle, 48% of bets on Lainesse
Yohan Lainesse (8-1) has won welterweight titles in smaller promotions and looked good beating Justin Burlinson in the first round on Dana White’s Contender Series.
Weeks (5-2) is going to be giving up size, length and striking power/ability. The big concern here is Lainesse’s ability to go three rounds if the fight gets there. The longer the fight goes and the more Weeks will gain confidence with his advantage in endurance. But Lainesse is more than capable of ending this quickly and making the conditioning point moot. Lainesse will land something big early and get the knockout.
