Azamat Murzakanov vs Tafon Nchukwi Prediction

Literally kicking off festivities we have “The Professional” Azamat Murzakanov taking on neighborhood michelin man Tafon “Don Don” Nchukwi. What we have here is a fairly black and white affair, both are esteemed kickboxers in their own right but it is going to be Azamat with a sizable wrestling advantage due to his almost stereotypical  Russian grappling pedigree.

Although neither is especially tall for the weight class, it will be Tafon with a two inch height advantage, as well as leading the charge in the arm department with an approximate five inch reach superiority to boot. After you factor in all of the variables, ultimately what is the move betting-wise?

I believe due to his physical constraints Azamat will look to establish his will on the ground, electing to chain wrestle from the start of the bout until its finale. He can strike with Tafon no question, but I feel like a man of his seasoned caliber will go for the path of least resistance and dive for takedowns almost immediately. 

The one knock I can take away from Azamat Murzakonov’s game is that he is hilariously low output, perhaps the lowest in the division, which is something that I thought Nchukwi held the mantle for previously until researching this fight.

It is with the almost negative volume coming from both men as well as Murakonov’s penchant for taking it to the mat to avoid any situations standing that I elect to play the over 1.5 as it is not as juiced as one would think, and a superb way to yet again take oneself out of the judges equation in the event it does go the full three rounds.

Some might remember I utilized this on the Tagir Tim Elliot over last time out for the same exact reason, and low and behold a robbery did come to fruition but the play cashed nonetheless due to preconceived hindsight. 

Never leave it to the judges, and by utilizing the over 1.5 in this matchup, you won't have to and, instead cash accordingly.
