Vitor Petrino vs Tyson Pedro Betting Prediction

Petrino has been getting finishes, but it’s been in the second third or round. Getting fights over quickly really hasn’t been his thing and that is going to be the case again in this game. This is going to be a grind it out fight, with neither fighter finishing it early. I actually think this fight goes to the judges, but Petrino also could end up getting the finish in the third round. Back the over 1.5 rounds to cash.
