Morales vs. Giles Prediction

It is time for some UFC this weekend, and I am fired up to get back into it. For those who don't know, during COVID, when UFC first came back, I was the best UFC bettor in the world. So, I feel dangerous this weekend.

We have a great UFC card and a lot of different matchups we could look at, but I do want to focus on one matchup in particular that I love. I am looking at a fight between Michael Morales and Trevin Giles.

Morales comes into this one 12-0 while the veteran the Giles enters with a 14-3 record. The play I am taking in this fight is going to be Michael Morales on the moneyline at -120.

I love Morales in this fight for a couple of reasons. But first, let's talk about this kid's upbringing. Both his parents have black belts, so this kid probably has been fighting for a long time! I do like the way he matches up here against the older Giles and think his youth will play a factor in this fight.

I feel confident to lay the slight juice on Morales as I think this line may jump a little more as we get closer to the time of the fight. I personally did sprinkle Morales to win this by knockout as well, so feel free to follow if you are feeling dangerous this weekend. I think this will be a good fight, but I love the kid in this one. Let's cash in on another UFC pick here. Enjoy the fight!
