Davion Franklin Betting Preview

Franklin is back on the winning side after posting a unanimous decision win against Kasim Aras in April of this year at Bellator 295. His previous battle was a third round rear naked choke submission defeat against Marcelo Golm at Bellator 283.

He has put together six career victories, with three each coming by knockout and decision. So far, all three of his knockouts have resulted in first round finishes and his only defeat has come by submission.

“All Day” has spent all of his professional career with Bellator. A majority of these have been against solid competitors, making his work a strong resume of wins.

Franklin is currently ranked as the 70th best heavyweight fighter in the world. This could be a great opportunity for him if he can seize the moment.

Slim Trabelsi Betting Preview

Trabelsi has been successful in all five of his professional bouts without a defeat. His most recent victory was a second round TKO over Azamat Nuftillaev at the Ares Fighting Championship 8 in September of last year.

Out of his five wins, he has three knockouts and two decisions. Only one of his knockouts has resulted in a first round finish.

He will be entering Bellator for the first time after successfully winning in the Ares FC, Levels Fight League, and in the Gladiator Fighting Arena. He has battled against solid competition, but nothing extraordinary as of the moment.

Trabelsi is currently ranked as the 109th best heavyweight fighter in the world. This is a tremendous opportunity and would greatly boost his rankings with a victory.

Odds, Series Trends and Free Pick

MyBookie currently presents the most recent odds, positioning Slim Trabelsi as a strong contender for victory. You could boost your winning potential by considering a strategic parlay, incorporating Trabelsi alongside other matchups listed in the event's lineup assuming you choose him to win.

  • Davion Franklin: +127

  • Slim Trabelsi: -185

The market is quite favorable towards Trabelsi, who has earned some acclaim with his ability to finish fights. However, he has not faced the same level of competition that Franklin has endured.  Franklin is much more appealing on paper and looks to be the fighter to beat here. Overall, this should be entertaining for the fans, but look for Franklin to close this out by knockout.
