Cage Warriors 98: The Odds
By Kieran Cobley
Kieran’s Top Tips
This weekend sees Cage Warriors return to Birmingham for the first time in eight years with an absolutely stacked card, and I’m here to give you my betting tips for it.
For this card, I’ll be having a treble on the main event between Stefano Paterno and Ross Houston for the Welterweight title, as well as Aiden Lee vs Paull McBain and Dean Trueman vs Lewis Monarch in the opening contests of the Featherweight tournament.
In the main event I’m backing “The Hitman”, due to the over whelming confidence he will be riding into this fight on.
Houston comes in to this fight with a 7-0 record, with his last win coming at Cage Warriors 95 via submission against Nathan Jones.
The Scotsman is the bookies favourite as well to win, coming in at 1/2 favourite, whilst champion Paterno comes in to his first title defence as the underdog at 6/4.
In the co-main, I’m backing Aiden Lee outright to get the win against Paull McBain.
Lee comes in with a 6-2 record, with three submission wins, so backing him to take a submission win isn’t a bad shout either.
McBain is the favourite coming into this fight with odds of 4/11, whilst Lee is the substantial underdog with odds of 2/1, so this could be a fight where the bookies take a real hammering.
My last pick is for Dean Trueman to pick up the win against Lewis Monarch, with the man from Ilkeston also being the bookies favourite at 2/5.
Trueman last fought at Cage Warriors 92: Super Saturday in March where he picked up a decision win, so his inactivity could be a possible risk when considering to back him.
So here’s my bet for Cage Warriors 98, a treble on:
A £20 stake returns £126 (including stake) at odds of 5.3/1
