The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 27 - Week 4

New, comments
Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The "Desert Storm" returns this week against Jesse Vargas. Tim Bradley is the most fun when squaring off against brawlers, so my expectations for action are low against careful boxer Vargas. Very few other competitive matches on TV this weekend.

In the absence of great fights, let's try a new prop bet: Will a fighter be knocked down? If you think not, or just don't like the odds, just PASS. Any official knockdown counts, whether or not the fighter gets up.

So for Selection E, if you want a single on Bradley being knocked down...

E. (1) - 1
