Charlie Campbell (6-1) vs. Chris Duncan (8-1)

ResultOddsImplied Chance
Charlie Campbell-16061.54%
Chris Duncan+13542.55%

Campbell is the much more in-form fighter as the American heads into Tuesday night riding a five-fight winning streak, with his last three victories all coming by way of KO/TKO.

Meanwhile, Duncan most recently got back on track with a victory this past February after losing on last season's contender series to surging UFC prospect Viacheslav Borschev.

Pick - Charlie Campbell (-160) (Bet $160 to Win $100)

Vinicius Salvador (13-4) vs. Shannon Ross (13-5)

ResultOddsImplied Chance
Shannon Ross-24070.59%
Vinicius Salvador+20033.33%

Looking to extend his winning streak to four, along with a UFC contract, is Brazilian-born flyweight Vinicius Salvador. To go along with his three-fight winning streak, ”Fenomeno” has knocked out each of his last three opponents and hopes to impress UFC President Dana White, who’s always looking to add new talent to the promotion's 125-pound division.

Standing across from Salvador is “The Turkish Delight,” Shannon Ross. The 33-year-old would be one of the oldest to earn a UFC deal through DWCS, and if he’s to do just that, he’ll need to put together a complete performance as he’s just 1-1 in his last pair of bouts.

Pick - Vinicius Salvador (+200) (Bet $100 to Win $200)

Francis Marshall (5-0) vs. Connor Matthews (5-0)

ResultOddsImplied Chance
Francis Marshall-13056.52%
Connor Matthews+11047.62%

A pair of undefeated featherweight prospects throw down, both looking for a UFC deal to help kickstart their burgeoning careers as Francis Marshall takes on Connor Matthews.

Marshall has earned a submission victory in four of his five professional contests, while Matthews has finished all five of his opponents, four by way of submission to go along with one knockout.

Pick - Connor Matthews (+110) (Bet $100 to Win $110)

Waldo Cortes-Acosta (6-0) vs. Danilo Suzart (9-1)

ResultOddsImplied Chance
Waldo Cortes-Acosta-40080.00%
Danilo Suzart+31024.39%

The biggest favorite on tonight’s card is Dominican heavyweight prospect Waldo Cortes-Acosta. As hardcore MMA fans know, Dana White will jump at the chance to add to the UFC’s heavyweight division, and a pair of rising prospects in the form of the aforementioned Acosta, as well as Brazil’s own Danilo Suzart, combine for five knockouts and two submission victories in their young careers, Uncle Dana is sure to be all eyes for this one.

Pick - Waldo Cortes-Acosta (-400) (Bet $400 to Win $100)

Shimon Smotritsky (8-1) vs. Billy Goff (7-2)

ResultOddsImplied Chance
Billy Goff-19065.52%
Shimon Smotritsky+16038.46%

The first bout on tonight’s DWCS card is an interesting matchup of wrestler vs. striker when Shimon Smotritsky takes on Billy Goff.

Smotritsky has earned three of his nine professional wins by way of ground and pound to go along with a submission victory, and a highlight head kick knockout to boot.

Meanwhile, Goff is looking for his sixth straight victory tonight and will look for his fifth finish, as he’s knocked out four of his previous five oppositions.

Pick - Smotritsky (+160) (Bet $100 to Win $160)
