Ortega (14-1-0-1) hasn’t fought since December 2018 when he lost to Holloway. He ate 290 strikes in that fight and now he faces Jung (16-5) who is also an aggressive striker, albeit with more power.
The Korean Zombie went 2-0 in 2019 with wins against Carneiro and Edgar. Both wins were by first-round TKO/KO. Ortega has also stoppage wins against both of these fighters in his career as well.
Jung averages 4.58 SLpM (41% Accuracy) and Ortega averages 4.07 SLpM (33% Accuracy). Jung will also have a 3’’ reach advantage. Ortega has poor striking defense as well. He averages 7.36 SApM (50% Defense) and Jung averages only 3.73 SApM (60% Defense).
Ortega’s best chance is to take this fight to the mat, but he averages less takedowns than Jung and only lands 16% of his takedown attempts. I’ll be betting on Jung to win inside the distance (ITD).
We can bet on Jung to win ITD at even money (+100).
Scott is one of our newest writer and handicapper here at ScoresAndStats.com, but he has been writing sports betting content for more than a decade online. His work has been featured on many websites.
Scott is a millennial (born in 1989) who grew up in Toronto, Canada and he has never left the big city. He grew up playing a few sports (hockey, soccer and baseball) when he was younger. His favorite sport was hockey and he played goalie. He still likes to get out to the rinks to play some pick-up with his buddies.
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.
