Jiri Prochazka vs Glover Teixeira 2 Odds
It isn’t surprising to see UFC sportsbook apps have Prochazka as the -196 favorite given the two are immediately running it back with a rematch and the champion was dominant in the first encounter.
However, value bettors will be tempted to ride with Glover to get his win back and even things up in the rematch as a $100 bet would win $164 should the underdog end UFC 282 as the champion.
Prochazka vs Teixeira Prediction
Prochazka has to be the favorite in this fight as the Czech Republic-born fighter has yet to face failure in the light heavyweight division. Thanks to the fortunate circumstance of narrowly avoiding the Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier era, Prochazka is untouched since entering the UFC in 2020.
In fact, Prochazka has yet to have a fighter survive the distance in his three UFC fights. Prochazka earned a finish in wins against Volkan Oezdemir and Dominick Reyes via second-round KO/TKOs to earn him the title opportunity against Glover, where he won by the aforementioned fifth-round rear naked choke.
Where Prochazka has been unstoppable since entering the UFC right as the Light Heavyweight division weakened in quality, Teixeira has tested himself against some of the all-time greats in the sport.
Glover has wins against Rampage Jackson, Rashad Evans, and Ryan Bader and also has losses against Jon Jones, Anthony Johnson, and Alexander Gustafsson. If Teixeira has the edge in any department in this fight, it will be in the experience department.
The rematch between Prochazka and Teixeira shouldn’t be expected to go the distance. All of Prochazka’s fights have ended with a finish, while the judges scorecards haven’t come into play in the last four of Teixeira’s octagon appearances.
