Bellator Newcastle takes place Saturday, February 9 at Utilita Arena in Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom.

The offshore sportsbooks lately opened the full odds for the main card, and here they are. Bellator Newcastle Odds Patricky Pitbull -510 Ryan Scope +340 Aaron Chalmers -275 Corey Browning +195 Terry Brazier -530 Chris Bungard +350 Fabian Edwards -380 Lee Chadwick +280 And here are my initial thoughts on the Bellator Newcastle introductory lines: Like most Bellator cards, this one is filled with big favorites. The majority of them need to win, such as Pitbull at the main event against Scope. The large different here is clearly the experience and level of competition faced. Pitbull has been among the best lightweights in Bellator for years (and probably one of the most underrated lightweights from the sport) while Scope is a Bellator newcomer who has not fought anyone of notice, save to get a split decision win over former UFC fighter Mickel Lebout in his final bout. Scope has actually been involved in the sport since a teen, but has never really made it big, whilst Pitbull remains one of the best lightweights in Bellator. I expect Pitbull to receive his hand raised and he will be a favorite parlay piece amongst bettors. I’m not entirely sold on Chalmers and I wouldn’t be shocked when Browning pulled off yet another upset. Chalmers has four first-round endings, however, the former reality TV star in England has been receiving simple matchups from the matchmakers. Browning was not supposed to be aggressive against Baby Slice within his Bellator debut, but he ended up finishing Kevin Ferguson Jr. by knockout in one of the biggest upsets of 2018 in MMA. I think Browning is probably somewhat better than many people believe he is, and that I would not be surprised at all if he got the angry here. As far as I am concerned, this can be a dog-or-pass circumstance. Brazier is creating his Bellator with a ton of hype as a former BAMMA champion. He has won his last nine fights and hasn’t tasted defeat since a 2015 knockout loss which was his sole livelihood defeat. Bungard has a decent amount of expertise on the European regional circuit and is a decent gatekeeper type of fighter, but that is obviously Bellator looking to fit up Brazier using a man who he can beat in his promotional introduction. Like Pitbull, I expect Brazier to acquire this fight handily and expect him to become a popular parlay piece as well. Much like Pitbull and Brazier, Edwards looks like he’ll be a popular chalk bit also. The brother of this UFC’s Leon is just 5-0 and he is only 25, meaning he’s a glowing MMA career ahead of him. Chadwick is a veteran of 40 fights and has fought many of England’s top boxers, but he’s been completed nine times, including four knockout losses, and this seems like another struggle at which the heavy favorite should glow. I would certainly keep your eye out to the Edwards inside the space props, but he is another man to consider placing to a Bellator chalk parlay.
