Eagle FC 47 Pick: Sean Soriano Moneyline, Andrew Sanchez Moneyline, Junior Dos Santos Moneyline -120

This coming Friday we have the return of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s less than stellar promotion Eagle FC, an establishment that has not really earned its stripes in the epicenter of the fight game but is sure to deliver with above average contests regardless.

Here is a parlay that should give you a big fat w and increase your bank account for bigger and better things to come as well. 

Paolo Silva vs. Sean Soriano 

Another UFC reject makes his debut into the Russian owned frey, proving that once again that most of these organizations are really just feeder systems or retirement homes of a primed combat athlete not able to compete with the best of them anymore.

Sean historically has always been a rangy, dynamic kickboxer, whose shots are paired with his razor-like sniping accuracy and physicality, subsequently being all mashed together in an effort to end his adversary in the 1st round or suffer a sustained beating if it gets prolonged past that point.

He is facing a completely unranked Brazilian victim in Paulo Silva on Friday, where many of the combat educated are saying this fight is less of a layup bout and more of a lamb being led to the slaughter. The problem Sean has always had historically has been his stand up being snuffed out by grappling, an issue that his opponent shares as evident by his multiple submission losses. Expect this to play right into Soriano’s wheelhouse and with that, a disgusting knockout to open up the better half of the card.

Gabriel Checco vs. Andrew Sanchez

Literally fresh out of the clutches of the UFC itself, “Dirty” Sanchez aims to improve his overall resume and make a name for himself in the trenches before hopefully getting called back up to the big show. He is a frenetic grappler by trade but has shown some pretty substantial striking acumen as of late, with his punching power being on full display during his knockout performance over Wellington Turman.

He faces stocky jujitsu man Gabriel Checco, who has never tasted the UFC but has made a claim to fame regardless by appearing as the twin brother of Zanghief from the Street Fighter series. I think Khabib and his matchmakers know exactly what they’re doing paring up this perennial journeyman with the still aggressive Sanchez. Expect Checco to flop to his back when getting rocked, only for Andrew to actually follow him down to the ground and put him out cold.

Junior Dos Santos vs. Yorgan De Castro

Ending the festivities is the former UFC heavyweight champion himself JDS taking on habitual garden gnome Yorgan DeCastro. It goes without saying that Junior is very washed, as his chin may now be closer resembling a paper mache than an actual bone, however Yorgan isn’ the most quality opponent either. While both have gotten cut from the heavyweight rankings, only one of the pair has anything really to show for it.

De Castro is an undersized obese light heavyweight who thinks he can make a name for himself taking on a legend in the minor leagues. He is going to be in for a rude awakening as his habitual 3 leg kicks and no boxing defense are going to lead to his inevitable demise. Look for Junior to easily bait Yorgan into being exposed, then flatlining him accordingly.

Use these 3 juiced favorites in order to achieve a decently priced parlay. It might not be at the highest level of fighting anymore, but these matchups are sure to deliver 10 fold and then some.
