Both of them have been somewhat inconsistent in their past few fights, as Ducote has gone 2-2 in her last four while Lima has gone 1-3. One very important factor here could be the age difference, as Ducote is just 26 years old while Lima is 38 years of age.

If there is ever a fight to take the underdog, this would be the fight to do so. Even though Chandler is favored to win, she has just a 2-1 record.
Parker, on the other hand, has not lost a fight in her entire MMA career as she sits at 9-0 dating all the way back to her amateur fighting days.
It is not like Parkers fights are spread out either, this will be her second fight in 2020 already and she fought three times in 2019 so she is very active during her nine-fight win streak.
Bettors should be taking Olivia Parker here and receive a very nice payout if she extends her win streak to 10.
Goodin Vs. Koren
Genia Goodin and Shelby Koren will kick off tonight's Invicta FC 40. Goodin is the favorite here with -125 odds while Koren has +105 odds.
Both of these fighters are undefeated as Goodin is 1-0 in her professional career and 8-0 in her amateur fights while Koren is 7-0 in her amateur career and this fight will be her first as a professional.
Goodin could have the upper hand here as she has one fight and one win under her belt as a pro. Not to take anything away from Koren as a 7-0 amateur career is very impressive but this is just her first fight.
Bettors can stick with Genia Goodin to extend her win streak here but once this fight is out of the way, bettors should look to take Koren in her future fights.
