UFC Fight Night 146 odds, predictions: Proven MMA insider picks Lewis vs. Dos Santos

Looking up and down the UFC Fight Night 146 card, the expectation is that fans watching UFC on ESPN+ 4 will be treated to highly-competitive action on Saturday night in Wichita. In fact, in the latest UFC Fight Night 146 odds, the favorite is listed at higher than -200 for just two of 13 fights. Junior Dos Santos is the biggest favorite of the night in a heavyweight bout against Derrick Lewis that will co-headline UFC Fight Night 146 Wichita. Dos Santos, who is 20-5, is a -220 favorite in the latest Lewis vs. Dos Santos odds. Meanwhile, Lewis, known for his one-punch knockout capabilities, is getting +180 (risk $100 to win $180). In the other headliner, Curtis Millender is a -125 favorite over Elizeu Daleski Dos Santos in the latest Millender vs. Dos Santos odds. Prelims start at 5 p.m. ET, with the main UFC on ESPN+ 4 card beginning three hours later.

Before you make any UFC Fight Night 146 picks, you need to hear what SportsLine MMA expert Kyle Marley has to say. Marley won the first-ever “ToutMaster” UFC betting contest sponsored by MMAOddsBreaker and appears regularly on multiple MMA betting and DFS shows. He watches every single fight for every single UFC card and does extensive research before each event. 

Over the past 10 months alone, $100 bettors who have followed Marley’s picks are up more than $21,000. It’s an astonishing cash rate that shows the depth of Marley’s knowledge. 

At UFC 235 last weekend, Marley advised SportsLine members that underdog Kamaru Usman (+150) would upset champion Tyron Woodley for the UFC welterweight title. He predicted Usman’s energy and activity level would be the difference in a unanimous-decision victory. That’s exactly what happened, as Usman dominated from the opening bell to claim the title belt with a lopsided decision. In fact, Marley went 9-2 last week, and anyone who followed his advice was way up.

What’s more, for UFC Fight Night 145 Prague two weeks ago, Marley told SportsLine members that Thiago Santos (-110) would beat Jan Blachowiz by knockout in the main event. He was on-point again, as Santos landed a third-round flurry to end the fight.

Now, with UFC Fight Night 146 Wichita fast approaching, Marley has carefully studied every matchup on the 13-bout card, identified the best value in the UFC odds and released his MMA picks for every single fight.

Marley knows the main event could be a turning point in the twilight of the careers for the 34-year-old Lewis and the 35-year-old Dos Santos as both aim to re-enter the heavyweight title picture. Dos Santos won the title in 2011 with a knockout win over Cain Velasquez. Lewis shrugged off thoughts of retirement and emerged as a top-five heavyweight contender on the strength of three straight victories. He accepted a title bout on short notice against Cormier in November, just one month after he took damage in a last-minute knockout win over Alexander Volkov. Now, Dos Santos and Lewis meet with plenty on the line. Marley’s UFC Fight Night 146 picks for every single bout can be found only at SportsLine.

One of the UFC Fight Night 146 predictions we’ll give away: Marley says Ben Rothwell earns the upset as a +110 underdog against Blagoy Ivanov in a heavyweight bout. 

Marley knows Rothwell hasn’t fought in almost three years, first missing time with a knee injury and then being suspended two years by USADA for PEDs. However, he’s a well-rounded fighter who should push the pace against a more methodical fighter like Ivanov. Plus, his ability to win via submission on the ground is why Marley gives the veteran with a 36-10 career record the edge at UFC Wichita.

“He will be the more active fighter, will land the harder shots, and can get a submission if it hits the ground as well,” Marley told SportsLine. “The line on Rothwell vs. Ivanov should be flipped, so I am going to lean with the underdog to pull this one out.”

Marley also has strong picks for Dos Santos vs. Lewis and Millender vs. Dos Santos. He’s only sharing who to back for every bout at UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Dos Santos over at SportsLine.
