VanZant Opens as Betting Favorite over Ostovich
For Paige’s second BKFC fight she opens as the favorite against Rachael Ostovich. The oddsmakers are giving PVZ an implied win probability of 66.67%, bet $200 to net $100 profit. Paige showed true grit in her first fight at BKFC, which saw her go to a decision against Britain Hart – but ultimately come up short. There is betting value on Rachael Ostovich here as a +160 underdog, bet $100 to net $160 profit.
The rematch between VanZant and Ostovich will play out much differently given the first fight was under MMA rules. PVZ managed to land 17 of 27 significant strikes compared to 10 out of 14 for Ostovich. In the end, it was the MMA skillset that prevailed for PVZ as she submitted Ostovich by armbar in the second round.
Given the fact that this is Ostovich’s first bare-knuckle fight and her current losing streak is at three. She will definitely be on the back foot during this fight. VanZant isn’t the hardest hitter but she has good in-ring IQ and has the one-fight experience at Knuckle Mania to stop this fight in the later rounds.
Betting Pick: VanZant by TKO.
Savage vs Hart BKFC Odds
Two BKFC fan favorites Jenny Savage and Britain Hart will go toe to toe at BKFC 19. Hart showed a tremendous fighting spirit to “shut down” VanZant’s first BKFC fight at Knuckle Mania. Now Hart opens as the slight betting underdog (+160) to Jenny Savage. The classy pair got into a spat after Hart’s last win and this ultimately set up the future bout.
Hart is 2-2 in BKFC, losing fights to Bec Rawlings and Christine Ferea in 2018-19, before bouncing back with victories in her last two outings. Savage is 1-0, making her debut last December with a second-round stoppage win over Sheena Brandenburg.
I expect the winner here to become the most dominant female fighter at BKFC. At this moment I’m favoring Savage to deliver yet another beat down and hand Hart her third bare-knuckle loss. For more BKFC odds and boxing news check out our boxing page for all the latest.
