Rafael dos Anjos is the former UFC lightweight champion who desperately needs a victory to avoid falling out of contention for a shot at a welterweight title. Kevin Lee is a rising star who has lost two of his past three bouts against top-ranked opponents. The stakes are high for both fighters when they meet Saturday night in the main event of UFC Fight Night 152. The 13-bout card takes place from the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, N.Y. The main card is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET, with preliminary fights starting at 5 p.m. ET. Dos Anjos (28-11) is ranked third at welterweight and looking to bounce back from a winless 2018, which included a decision loss to current champ Kamaru Usman. Lee (17-4) is ranked No. 7 at lightweight but is moving up a division following a decision loss to Al Iaquinta. Dos Anjos is the sportsbook favorite at a price of -115 (risk $115 to win $100), while Lee is -105 (risk $105 to win $100) in the latest Dos Anjos vs. Lee odds.
Before you make any UFC Fight Night 152 picks, be sure to see the predictions from SportsLine MMA expert Kyle Marley. Marley won the first-ever “ToutMaster” UFC betting contest sponsored by MMAOddsBreaker and appears regularly on multiple MMA betting and DFS shows. Over the past year, $100 bettors who have followed Marley’s picks are up nearly $22,000.
Last week at UFC 237, Marley advised SportsLine members that Alex Volkanovski (+120) would use his nonstop pressure to upset UFC icon Jose Aldo (-140) in a main-card featherweight bout. That’s exactly what happened as Volkanovski controlled the action from the opening bell, and Marley’s followers pocketed another easy winner.
At UFC Fight Night 151 two weeks ago, Marley went a stunning 11-1 and netted $100 bettors nearly $1,000 in profit in a single evening. His selections included accurately predicting that Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone (+110) would pull the upset of Iaquinta (-130) in the main event. Anyone who has followed Marley’s advice is way up.
Now, with UFC Rochester fast approaching, Marley has carefully studied every matchup on the UFC Fight Night 152 card, identified the best value in the UFC odds and released his MMA picks for every single fight. He’s sharing them only over at SportsLine.
Marley knows that dos Anjos and Lee are eager to get back on track, and the winner is likely to re-enter the title picture. Dos Anjos, 34, lost a decision to Colby Covington for the interim welterweight title last June before going the distance with Usman in November. The two-fight losing streak ties the longest of his career.
Lee, 27, fell to Tony Ferguson in October 2017 for the interim lightweight title. He bounced back with a win over Edson Barboza, but lost a close decision to his rival, Iaquinta, in December. Lee has said he believes he will be stronger at welterweight because he can avoid the draining weight cut required at lightweight. You can see his Dos Anjos vs. Lee picks at SportsLine.
One of Marley’s UFC Fight Night 152 picks that we can tell you: He is backing Aspen Ladd (-300) to get the better of Sijara Eubanks (+250) in a women’s bantamweight clash on the undercard.
Ladd (7-0) seeks her third straight UFC victory, while Eubanks (4-2) hasn’t lost since dropping a decision to Ladd in January 2017 when both were part of the Invicta FC promotion.
“Both have improved since then, but Ladd even more so,” Marley told SportsLine. “She is also 10 years younger and on the way up, while the 34-year-old Sijara will be on the way down before too long. I see Ladd being the more dominant fighter and being able to control where this fight takes place.”
Marley also has UFC on ESPN+ 10 picks locked in for Dos Anjos vs. Lee and every other fight on this stacked card. Those MMA picks are only available at SportsLine.
