UFC 272 Covington vs Masvidal Betting Guide
Staying away from betting on Colby Covington vs Jorge Masvidal. Colby will win but the line is way off. Doesn't make sense that Covington is a (-320) favorite. Too much riding on this match, especially seeing there is a big emotional factor here. Wouldn't advise betting on the main event for UFC 272.
Edson Barboza (+140) vs Bryce Mitchell (-160)
Finally, the moment we have been waiting for, the debut of Bryce Mitchell's camo shorts. We haven’t seen Mitchell in over 15 months. After his win over Andre Fili, he took time off to work on his craft.
The book is out on Edson Barboza, you know what you are going to get when fighting him. On the other hand, you don't fully know what to expect against the young 27 year old. Expect Mitchell to look completely improved.
It's Thug Nasty, hard to bet against a man in camo fight shorts.
Bet: Bryce Mitchell (-160)
Kevin Holland (-290) vs Alex Oliveira (+230)
We have not seen the best version of Kevin Holland over his past three fights. Holland is due for a massive come back and he is teed up for it against Alex Oliveira. Oliveira has been on a skid himself, going 0-3 in his past three fights.
Kevin Holland is making his welterweight debut, feels like Dana gave him Oliveira to get back on track. Keeping it simple, Holland is the more technical fighter here. Very confident in a Kevin Holland bet.
Bet: Kevin Holland (-290)
Umar Nurmagomedov (-720) vs Brian Kelleher (+500)
Wrote down Umar Nurmagomedov as one of my bets before looking at the lines. I understand that if you completely skip this section, (-720) is absurd. It's almost not even worth it to include Nurmagomedov in your parlay.
Nurmagomedov's takedown pressure is going to be too much for Kelleher to handle. Short and sweet, the odds are doing the talking here.
Bet: Umar Nurmagomedov (-720)
Dustin Jacoby (-190) vs Michal Oleksiejczuk (+160)
Like the value of Dustin Jacoby here. Honestly including Jacoby in this breakdown because I plan on adding him to my parlay. Needed to add Jacoby to the UFC 272 betting guide.
Not right that this guide only consists of favorites. Normally have an underdog for pay per view events.
Bet: Dustin Jacoby (-190)
