Overeem vs Rozenstruik Odds
The betting odds for Rozenstruik vs Overeem are priced closely for this heavyweight bout. Bet $100 on Rozenstruik to win $49, Bet $100 on Overeem to win $185.
Rozenstruik (9-0), made his UFC debut in Feburary with a second round TKO win over Júnior Albini. Since then he has picked up two 1st-round finishes over Allen Crowder and most recently Andrei Arlovski at UFC 244.
Overeem (45-17- 1-NC), is currently on a two-win fight streak with both first-round KO’s. The former Strikeforce heavyweight champion has had his chin tested against the elite at heavyweight and it doesn’t look promising from here on out for the Dutch man.
Overeem will be Rozenstruik’s first real challange at heavyweight and Rozenstruik is yet to be tested inside the octagon. Still we can’t pick Overeem due to his recent KO losses, especially against a puncher like Rozenstruik. Our pick is to take Rozenstruik and once the betting props come out keep an eye on the odds for 1st or 2nd round KO.
