Bellator 274 Betting Preview | MMA Analysis
Justine Kish -130 vs Deanna Bennett +110
Kish is 2-0 after a couple of MMA fights. The record doesn’t sparkle, but Justine was a kickboxer before starting her MMA career. While kickboxing, she dominated winning 22-of-24.
Bennett is 37. So the 34-year-old has age on her side. Also, Bennett has lost 3-of-5. The chalk should take this.
Bellator 274 Pick: Justine Kish
Mandel Nallo -165 vs Nick Browne +140
With 8 wins and a single loss, Nallo, no doubt, can win this. But his opponent has a better overall record.
Nick Browne is 12-1. He’s got more experience than Nallo. Also, Browne has a couple of inches on the chalk. He’s 6’0” while Nallo is 5’11”. The odds make the dog the play.
Bellator 274 Pick: Nick Browne
Davion Franklin +160 vs Said Sowma -190
Franklin is a knockout specialist. Davion has won 3 of his 4 bouts via KO or TKO. The other fight he won via decision.
Said Sowma is 8-2. On paper and visually, Sowma has more skills. One of his victories came via submission. But Sowma is 5’ 11” and Franklin is 6’ 2”. It’s difficult seeing the underdog having success considering the 4-inch height difference.
Bellator 274 Pick: Davion Franklin
Georgi Karakhanyan +265 vs Adam Piccolotti -330
Now 36, Karakhanyan shows no signs of slowing down. The Shotokan Karate and Sambo expert has won 31 of 45 fights. He’s won 16 via submission.
But although Karakhanyan remains a great fighter, he lost his last bout. Also, Piccolotti has 12 wins from 16 fights, and like Karakhanyan, is capable of submitting his opponents. The favorite looks tough.
Bellator 274 Pick: Adam Piccolotti
Chance Recountre +280 vs Andrey Koreshkov -380
Recountre has 16 wins from 20 bouts. He’s won 5 bouts via TKO or KO and 6 via submission, proving he can win in the stand up or on the mat.
Andrey Koreshkov is 24-of-28 with 12 knockout wins, 4 submission wins and 8 victories via decision. Koreshkov should win, no doubt. But Recountre has won his last couple. Also, the odds make Koreshkov an underlay.
Bellator 274 Pick: Chance Recountre
Logan Storley +140 vs Neiman Gracie -165
Logan Storley is no joke. He’s won 12 fights from 13. 8 of the wins ended with Story knocking out his opponent. The other 4 victories ended with Story submitting his opponent.
Gracie is awarded the favorite’s odds because he’s one of the best submission artists in the world. But Storley is legit. His lone loss happened against Yaroslav Amosov. The former NCAA Wrestling All-American, that’s Storley, gets it done.
Bellator 274 Pick: Logan Storley
