These heavyweight fights can crush you if you’re not careful.
De Castro (6-1) is 1-1 in the UFC with a KO against Tafa and a decision loss to Hardy. Felipe lost his UFC debut to Spivak by decision. Both guys have power and this fight should end in the first round.
Felipe has 6 TKO/KO wins and De Castro has 5 TKO/KO wins. Neither fighter has ever been stopped in their career, but that’s going to change on Saturday. Now, how should we bet this fight?
I’m not betting on De Castro at –250 odds. You can bet De Castro by TKO/KO (+110), but I don’t trust him yet. Both guys are relatively new and will want to put on a show in the co-main event.
My best bet is on this fight not starting the third round (-165).

Growing up in Toronto, Scott is a huge fan of all Toronto teams.
He watches the Maple Leafs and Raptors religiously. Scott also enjoys watching the Blue Jays, Argonauts and TFC.
His best sports memory was when the Raptors were crowned the 2019 NBA Champions. Unfortunately, he’s still waiting for the Maple Leafs to win a Stanley Cup during his lifetime.
Scott may be a diehard fan of Toronto sports teams, but he loves watching all sports. He’s a huge UFC fan (look for his UFC betting articles for most events) and he’ll watch just about anything, including tennis, golf, soccer and cricket.
Scott is a numbers guy and he likes digging deep into the statistics when handicapping games. He also likes to identify value bets in markets most bettors overlook, including player/team props.
When he’s not handicapping and watching sports, he enjoys golfing in the warmer months. He also loves burgers and poutine. Not only is that his favorite meal, but he has tried over 100 burgers in Toronto and he’s constantly looking for the best new burgers in the city.
