Tom Duquesnoy vs Patrick Williams: Bantamweight
BAMMA’s bantamweight champion Tom Duquesnoy opened up as a moderate favorite around -385 for his UFC debut, before the coin began flowing in his general direction, and his moneyline soared to around -840. Patrick Williams opened up at around +265, before jumping up to around a staggering +660 where he now resides.
Aljamain Sterling vs. Augusto Mendes: Bantamweight
On the heels of back-to-back split decison losses, Aljamain Sterling opened up as a -215 favorite to the +165 Augusto Mendes. The consecutive losses on Aljo’s record have not at all scared away the MMA gamblers, which is evident by his moneyline ballooning up to around -370. Mendes’ tag of +165 has spiked to near +375 as his line has seen little love.
Jeremy Stephens vs Renato Moicano: Featherweight
Jeremy Stephens has gone 2-2 in his last 4 UFC fights, but make no mistake about it, those 2 losses came to some pretty elite talent in former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar, and the now interim featherweight king Max Holloway. Stephens hits incredibly hard and has been more responsible with his shot selection in the later stages of his career. Although he has looked impressive thus far in his undefeated career, Ray Ray might have Moicano stealing the wrong radio this time. Jeremy Stephens @-165 is a solid pick.
