I’ve already given you my prediction and betting advice for the primary event at UFC 218 (Aldo vs Holloway). Now that the moneylines and props are outside for the rest of the card, it’s time for a UFC 218 deep dip.
Which underdogs have worth? Which fights should bettors avoid? How can you put together a possibly lucrative parlay from the conflicts on tap? Let’s take a look.
UFC 219 Odds and Predictions: Cyborg vs. Holm
There’s no large’dog calling out at UFC 218 to me. But there’s 1 man on this card who could defy some relatively steep odds.
Francis Ngannou (-270) vs. Alistair Overeem (+230)
Alistair Overeem might get merked with a larger and more powerful puncher in Francis Ngannou, however at +230, he’s well worth throwing a few pennies at. Normally I would put this struggle from the stay-away class, but this really is a big test for Ngannou, a man who really hasn’t been analyzed yet.
Overeem is a veteran of the sport and, although his chin might be suspect, he’s among the best fight IQs from the heavyweight division. Kickboxing ability and his smarts could provide us a large upset along with a wonderful profit. Don’t go crazy with this, however. Ngannou deserves to be favored, just not by this much. Overeem is worth a wager.
Felice Herrig (-140) vs. Cortney Casey (+110)
Cortney Casey isn’t a massive dog, but her +105 moneyline would still net you a good return and/or promote a parlay. Both fighters have looked strong, but stylistically, Casey seems to get the size and strength to give Herrig problems. The single woman that has been able to fit Casey’s physicality was Claudia Gadelha and that woman is among the finest in the branch. If Casey could pour on the strain, she could overwhelm Herrig and get a tiny upset win . Again, do not go crazy and throw your whole bankroll, but Casey is well worth a couple of shekels.
