Rizzo and Kelly took a real-life example of betting on some UFC 198 fights and explained the science. The hosts looked at Antônio Rogério Nogueira, Francisco Trinaldo, Maurício “Shogun” Rua and heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum, then divided them in column A or B, and discussed how to get the biggest bang for your buck.

Rizzo and Kelly debated the biggest line spread on the card, which is Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino (-1700) vs. Leslie Smith (+1100). The American (Rizzo) presented a strong case for the underdog, but the Canadian (Kelly) countered with his concerns for placing a wager on Smith.

The GTA-NYC tandem also analyzed other betting lines, such as Demian Maia vs. Matt Brown, Ronaldo Souza vs. Vitor Belfort, John Lineker vs. Rob Font and the rest of the bouts on the 12-fight card.
