Betting Teixeira vs Prochazka at UFC 275
In terms of betting value, the line is wide open here for money to be made on Glover or Jiri. Glover has been overlooked by the oddsmakers many times in his UFC run, this time is no exception as he’s the betting underdog who holds UFC gold. Glover joins the ranks of a small list of UFC champions that were underdogs while defending their belt. At 42, he’s also the oldest first-time champion in UFC history. His UFC record stands at 16-5.
For Jiri he will go down as one of the quickest title runs to challenge for a UFC title. In his two UFC fights he remained the betting favorite and made short work of Volkan Oezdemir and Dominick Reyes, both fights he finished by KO in the second round
Overall, “Denisa” has projected a real IT factor in a short period of time. His 12 fight winning streak stems back from 2015 to him winning the RIZIN strap and eventually making his way to the UFC. Jiri’s style certainly leaves himself open to receiving a strike to give one back, this is something Glover could capitalize on and go for the takedown similar to the Jan fight.
UFC 275’s co-main is set for the women’s flyweight title, with Valentina Shevchenko taking on Brazil’s #4 ranked flyweight Taila Santos. You can preview Shevchenko vs Santos betting odds & predictions here.
