Espinosa vs Perez Predictions
Perez has more experience than Espinosa but I don’t know that he should be more than a 2-1 favorite. I definitely don’t want to be laying the price on Perez, so the question is whether Espinosa is worth a play as the underdog. He could be worth a small flyer, as he has the ability to finish and this fight looks like it will end on the mat. I will take a small shot with Espinosa as the underdog. I also think the rounds are worth playing, as these two have combined for 16 first round finishes and each fighter has shown strong submission skills. I will also take this fight to go under the rounds total.
Our prediction – Alex Perez wil win
