Junior dos Santos vs Jairzinho Rozenstruik Odds
- dos Santos Odds +110
- Rozenstruik Odds -150
Jairzinho Rozenstruik was sparked by Francis Ngannou in his last bout. How will Bigi Boi come back from the KO loss? As he goes up against heavyweight veteran Junior dos Santos.
We see this fight playing out in two scenarios. You can bet dos Santos to win by decision, or Rozenstruik by KO via Bovada.com.
Junior dos Santos has been working on his strength and conditioning lately with world renowned coach Phil Daru. We are going for the underdog in this fight, with too many question marks over Rozenstruik and dos Santos bringing that experience.
Pick: dos Santos by Decision
John Dodson vs Merab Dvalishvili Odds
- Dodson Odds +150
- Dvalishvili Odds -200
John Dodson is the betting underdog going into this bantamweight bout. You can bet $100 on Dodson to win $150. For Merab Dvalishvili as the favorite, you would have to wager $200 to net $100 profit.
Overall Dvalishvili should be able to control this fight, get points for takedowns and eventually tire out Dodson due to carrying so much weight and having to fight to get back on his feet. This doesn’t feel like a good matchup for the Dodson.
Pick: Dvalishvili by Decision
Magomed Ankalaev vs Ion Cuțelaba Odds
- Ankalaev Odds -350
- Cuțelaba Odds +240
The quick turnaround rematch between Ankalaev and Cuțelaba will be contested at UFC 252. As expected the winner from the 1st bout Magomed Ankalaev is the betting favorite. Dan Hardy does an excellent job as usual, of breaking down this fight above.
Ion Cuțelaba as a big underdog is always worth considering for the dangerous fighter. At odds of +240, you can bet $100 to win $240. This could be one of the most exciting fights on the card and if you are looking for a valued underdog bet on Ion Cuțelaba.
