With just a few nights left for the UFC heavyweight title fight, get your money ready if you know who will have their hands raised. Some people just love betting on their favorite fighters or just have a sixth sense that the guy will win. It just makes the fight a little more interesting but don’t get too carried away on betting everything.
Well as of the moment, the current champion Stipe Miocic is an underdog so if you think that he will win the fight, you can bet on it and win an even bigger reward. According to Miocic, the Vegas just dislikes him, which resulted in him being the underdog. He is currently a (+110) underdog. Honestly a great bet, considering he already beat him the first time.
Although Francis Ngannou has been on a hot streak as well. He has been knocking guys out left and right, but that was also the case on their first fight. No fight is the same and if you feel Ngannou has evolved and will get the W, he is a (-130) slight favorite.
As for the co-main event, former welterweight champion, Tyron Woodley is a decent underdog as he is a (+200) underdog. Woodley has been on the top of the division for quite a while but when he lost the belt, he has been riding on a three fight losing skid. What makes it even more sad, he lost all the rounds in his lost.
He still has the dynamite hands but could he knock out someone as durable as Luque? It is also possible that Woodley would give it his all, since he may be at risk of getting cut in the UFC. Betting on Woodley, could potentially triple your money.But Vicente Luque is also durable in his own rights. In his fight with Stephen Thompson, he got hit with a lot of shots but still went to a decision. Luque has won 9 of his last 10 fights which means momentum is on his side. If you think Luque wins, he is a (-250) favorite. Huge bet to gain less.
Two hype trains that were derailed are also fighting on this card. Sugar Show, Sean O’Malley who faced his first defeat against Chito Vera will be fighting Thomas Almeida a former top prospect. Although O’Malley’s lost was due to an injury he suffered during he fight, so he could prove that the hype is still there if he knocks out Almeida in a spectacular fashion. He is a (-325) heavy favorite which is pretty much reasonable.
Thomas Almeida was once a top undefeated prospect in the UFC, but sadly after he got his first loss against Cody Garbrandt, his undefeated aura changed. If he somehow beats O’Malley, he could actually steal some of the hype and confidence that could spark his career once more. Betting on him can gain huge potential rewards, he is a (+250) underdog.
There is also a women’s fight featured in the main card. The fight may not be that big but you never know. Gillian Robertson is a (+135) slight underdog against (-165) Miranda Maverick. Robertson is coming of a loss which might be the reason she is the underdog. Meanwhile, Maverick is riding a four fight win streak.
For the main card opener, it will feature Jaime Mullarkey as a (+110) slight underdog. He is coming off a back to back losses but he likes to deliver entertaining fights.
He is fighting a rising prospect Khama Worthy (-130) favorite who is coming off his first UFC loss. Worthy is still a talented fighter that is really well rounded in the MMA game.
