Jose Aldo vs. Max Holloway: Featherweight Title
The UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo opened up with a slight favorite line of -130, to interim champion Max Holloway’s slight dog tag of +100. The betting public likes what they see with Holloway, as he has become the favorite with a line of around -110, with Aldo clocking in at around -105. Expect to see this line teeter totter a bit, but remain in the realm of pick’em odds.
Erick Silva vs. Yancy Medeiros: Welterweight
Yancy Medeiros began his UFC 212 betting career as slight underdog at +110 to Erick Silva’s favorite tag of -150, The money slowly crept in for Medeiros, as he now sports a minus line of -120, with Silva being found anywhere from -115 to +105. Don’t be surprised to see these odds grow a bit wider, with Silva solidifying his position as the underdog.
Matthew Lopez vs. Johnny Eduardo: Bantamweight
The 9-1 Matthew Lopez opened up against the 28-10 Johnny Eduardo as a slight betting favorite at around -150, before steadily climbing to a solid minus line of near -210. Eduardo’s UFC 212 moneyline began with a slight underdog tag of +110, but has now reached north of +170.
Paulo Henrique Costa vs. Oluwale Bamgbose: Middleweight
Both Borrachinha (-360) and Bamgbose (+300) have finished each of their professional bouts inside of the 1st round, so each man possesses the prescribed power in their punches to end the fight at any moment. With that being said, Fight doesn’t go to decision is a worthless -750 and the line for Under 1.5 rounds is a lackluster -250. This seems like more of a pick’em fight anyway, as Bamgbose has faced better competition, albeit in losing efforts, but has seen deeper water than has Borrachinha. Oluwale Bamgbose @+300 is worth considering.
