Emily Shilson vs Charlotte Fowler

Shilson is one of the most credentialed young wrestlers on the Senior-level scene right now. The Augsburg University wrestler won NCWWC and WCWA national titles last season, made a U23 world team in 2019, won silver and gold medals at the Cadet world championships in 2017, and 2018, and won six Fargo national titles. The Minnesota native is currently ranked seventh at 50kg.

Watch Shilson beat McKayla Campbell in the WCWA finals earlier this year.

In a turn of unfortunate events, Felicity Taylor was forced to withdraw from her bout with Shilson due to an eligibility conflict with McKendree University. However, her replacement, Charlotte Fowler, stepped up on less than 48 hours notice! Fowler wrestles at powerhouse Camblesville University and made the 2018 U23 World Team. This past season she took third at the WCWA Championships at 116 lbs.

Odds

ML: Shilson -600

ML: Fowler +850

Spread: Shilson -8.5

OU: 14.5

Seth Gross vs Joe Colon

These two wrestled two wild matches in 2017 with Colon coming out the victor in both. However, both of these men have improved a lot since then.

Watch Seth Gross and Joe Colon square off in a 28-point match at the 2017 US Open below.

Since 2017, Gross has won an NCAA title and Colon has won a World bronze medal. While some things have changed, some things have remained the same. Colon’s chest wrap and gut wrench are still incredibly lethal. Gross made huge improvements in 2017 to avoid these two things. In their first match, Colon scored 12 points using only those two moves. However, in the second match, Colon was only able to get one chest wrap and zero gut wrenches. This match won’t just be entertaining because of the huge Olympic Team Trials seeding implications. Both of these guys can wrestle a hard pace and aren't afraid of deep waters.

Odds

ML: Colon -120

ML: Gross +100

OU: 14.5

Spread: Colon -1.5

Rustam Ampar vs Jack Mueller

In a late switch of opponents due to injury, Rustam Ampar will be replacing Vito Arujau to take on Jack Mueller. While it is disappointing we will not get to watch Vito wrestle, Rustam is a great replacement. The Russian has actually been training with Vito for a while now and helped him prepare for his July 25th match with Sammy Alvarez.

Ampar has an electric style. This style was on display at the 2016 Yarygin when Ampar tech falled 2016 Olympian Dan Dennis in an absolutely wild match.

Watch Ampar tech fall Dan Dennis below.

While Ampar finished in second place in 2016, he did win the very prestigious tournament in 2014. Now 29 years old, Ampar will be seven years older than Mueller when the two step on the mat Thursday. 

Ampar isn’t the only one who has been wrestling freestyle their whole life. Mueller won Fargo twice and made an additional final as a prep. In 2018 the Texas native made the U23 World Team where he wrestled for a bronze medal. If Ampar is looking for a game plan on Mueller, he should start with defending the chest wrap and single leg as those are Mueller’s two main attacks.

Odds

ML: Ampar -150

ML: Mueller +110

Spread: Ampar -1.5

OU: 8.5

Alexandria Glaude vs Victoria Francis

The first of those matches is Victoria Francis vs. Alexandria Glaude. A rematch from the semifinals of Senior Nationals back in December that included some scoreboard confusion in the final seconds, but one that Francis ultimately came out on top of.

Watch Glaude and Francis' controversial finish at the 2019 Senior Nationals.

Not only is it a rematch, but it will be a showdown between the third- and fourth-ranked wrestlers in the country at 68kg and wrestlers who have had success on the international level. Francis was the 2019 U.S. world team member at 72kg after winning Final X and would advance to the bronze-medal match at the World Championships, but ultimately finished fifth.

Glaude made Final X in 2019 as well but fell to eventual world champion Tamyra Mensah-Stock in straight matches. In 2018, Glaude brought home a bronze medal from the U23 World Championships in Bucharest, Romania. 

Odds

ML: Francis -140

ML: Glaude -115

Spread: Francis -.5

OU: 6.5

Gable Steveson vs Trent Hillger

Gable Steveson is the biggest favorite on this entire card for a reason: he has beaten Trent Hillger soundly four times. If you’re looking for a reason to pick Hillger, however, he has closed the gap each time. Their last meeting this past season the score was 10-5. However, all of Hillger’s points were escapes, which are not awarded in freestyle wrestling.

Watch Gable Steveson and Trent Hillger’s lone previous freestyle match from 2018.

Hillger is no slouch. In 2019 Hillger earned his first All-American status as a redshirt freshman when he finished eighth. Going into the 2020 NCAA Championships, Hillger earned himself the sixth seed.  Gable is just so quick, strong, and can score so many different ways. 

Odds

ML: Steveson -1,000

ML: Hillger +900

Spread: Steveson -7.5

OU: 13.5

This one could turn into a scramblefest with some weird and awkward positions. In his prime circa 2015-2017 at 57 kg, Vladimir Khinchegashvili was one of the best wrestlers on the planet. He has five World/Olympic medals to his name including gold in 2015 and at the 2016 Rio Olympics. This doesn’t happen by chance or accident. While Khinche has taken a step back in the win/loss column, he is still capable of great things. 

Yianni is also capable of great things. While he stumbled a bit at Senior Nationals with a loss to Joey McKenna, this man is still a two-time NCAA and Cadet World champion. With his stinginess and scrambling ability, the New York native can be very frustrating to wrestle. Yianni beat a World medalist at last year’s Beat the Streets event. Can he do it again this year?

Odds

ML: Khinchegashvili -125

ML: Diakomihalis -115

Spread: Khinchegashvili -0.5

OU: 10.5
