Garbrandt vs Jones Odds
Cody Garbrandt is a -165 favorite to win at UFC 285 over Trevin Jones’s +145. That’s a 62.2% implied win probability for the former bantamweight champion, who hasn’t been in the win column much as of later – losing five of his six bouts. As the underdog here, Jones has a huge opportunity to shine, with a $100 wager netting $145 profit.

Cody Garbrandt vs Trevin Jones Prediction
Since capturing the bantamweight title in 2016 Cody Garbrant has been on a rollercoaster ride. These days he still remains a fan favorite but has become more known for having a suspect chin.
Most recently Garbrandt lost to Kai Kara-France in typical Garbrandt wreck-less style, which is the most fixable chink that can be corrected with an actionable strategy. After a failed attempt at the flyweight division, Garbrant returns to his more natural weight class, one that he exploded in from 2015-2016.
Jones started this UFC run with a TKO win over Mario Bautista at UFC 259. Since then he went on to lose three consecutive bouts and finds himself coming off three losses to Saidyokub Kakhramonov, Javid Basharat, and Raoni Barcelos. The 32-year-old now holds a 1-3 overall UFC record with one no-contest over five appearances.
In terms of striking volume, Cody has the edge here and 3.16 significant strikes landed per minute, compared to Jones at 2.33. This could be a decisive factor, with Cody also being the heavier puncher.
The way I see this fight playing out is very similar to most of Cody Garbrandt’s fights, it won’t take long until Garbrandt and Jones are aiming to knock each other out. Both fighters have the ability to put each other’s lights out, with Cody getting a big win here inside the distance.
Betting Pick: Cody Garbrandt by TKO/KO
