J.J. Aldrich vs. Chan-Me Jeon: (W) Strawweight
J.J. Aldrich (-160) began her UFC Auckland betting life at around -175, before a solid chunk of change was dropped on Chan-Me Jeon (+150) that sent the UFC veteran on a brief trip to the land of the underdog at +190. Jeon took a quick dip in the favorite pool at around -230, but the coin quickly flew in for her competitor at dog odds, sending her back to a dog tag of around +150.
Dong Hyun Kim vs. Thibault Gouti: Lightweight
“Maestro” Dong Hyun Kim (-125) started out with a favorite line of -185 before wagers on his opponent catapulted Kim to the pick’em line of -105. Kim has since been steadily trekking back into favorite territory. Thibault Gouti (+105) opened up as the clear underdog at around +145, but some serious loot was laid on him on Wednesday, thrusting Gouti into the favorite role at around -110. This is somewhat of a peculiar play, seeing as Gouti has gone 3-0 inside of the UFC, with each bout resulting in him getting finished before the final bell. Gouti has since returned to an underdog line, but let us not forget about the alleged fight fixing shenanigans surrounding UFC Fight Night 79: Henderson vs. Masvidal.
Dan Kelly vs. Derek Brunson: Middleweight
Dan Kelly consistently over-produces in his underdog role, and the Australian Judoka gets stronger as the fight progresses. With taking on an opponent like Derek Brunson, who is really known for a strong first round, if the fight makes it to the second frame, the chances of a Kelly rally dramatically increase. Daniel Kelly @+250 is to be considered, against virtually anyone at this point, to be quite frank.
