The UFC and Draftkings once again united to present on the line, as the panel expert sportsbook pundits revealed this weekend’s events will enjoy a trickle-down effect following last weekend’s Super Bowl-like card.
Nick Kalikas of FightOdds, revealed that in spite of the card last week being significantly bigger than this weekend’s action, punters are sticking around and still looking to bet big on UFC Fight Night.
The betting activity isn’t something that’s surprising to Gianni ‘The Greek’, as the panel stated their belief that it is human nature for bettors to want to replicate the buzz of last weekend.
Headlining on Saturday is Islam Makhachev, who is a clear favourite heading into his clash with fellow prospect Thiago Moisés.
Although both panellists backed Makhachev, they revealed that the line has moved too rapidly in the Russian’s favour, however, both added that should he move up the ranks they would continue to back him if he is plus money.
In terms of value for Saturday night, the pair agreed that the fight finishing under 4.5 rounds was a decent shout – with Moises’ best route to victory being a finish.
Decorated female fighter, Miesha Tate, returns in the co-main, Kalikas underlined just how difficult it is to bet on her getting a comeback victory after such an extended layoff.
Gianni added that with the uncertainty there needs to be more of an upside on the betting market.
