Thiago Santos vs. Glover Teixeira 11:00 PM | Sat, Nov 07 2020
Sport: UFC | Star Rating: 6.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1350)
TS (-225) @ pinnacle

I'm backing THIAGO SANTOS on Saturday night. At 36, Santos is no spring chicken. However, in comparison to the 41-year old Teixeira, he's relatively young. Santos hasn't been around for awhile. In fact, he hasn't fought since the summer of 2019, as he sustained a knee injury. That was no ordinary fight. Santos took Jon Jones, long considered the "baddest man on the planet," to a split decision. Teixeira also fought Jones (back in 2014) but he got dominated. While Teixeira has been winning of late, I believe that he's been a bit fortunate to do so and that he's severely outclassed here. He's vulnerable to taking shots while on his feet. I say Santos knocks him out. 


What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
