  • Tank Abbott (+300)

Picks and Predictions for Kimbo v. Tank

  • The odds for this fight have not moved much since they first came out. Kimbo Slice was a -350 favorite when the lines came out a month ago and have since moved to -450. Kimbo is obviously the fan favorite, and the odds for this fight are reflecting that. According to the new odds, the bookmakers are giving Kimbo an 81% chance to win this fight. While I love Kimbo like the rest of you, he shouldn’t be an 81% favorite in his second MMA fight.
  • Tank Abbott comes into this fight with a ton of baggage and a huge losing streak. At 42 years of age, Tank has had a rough go at it in his recent fights.  He’s boasting a lackluster 1-7 record in his last 8 fights. People who remember Tank from the nineties understand that he was once a good fighter, but he’s really fallen off the radar since then. As the odds change, they continue to help Tank and I think this makes him the best value bet in this fight. The smart money will definitely be bet on Tank. With that said, I won’t be putting any substantial amount of money down on this fight. There’s way too many unknowns with each fighter to bet a lot on this fight. This is the perfect fight to throw a few bones down on and cheer for whoever you bet on.
