I have already given you my forecast 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 is time to get a UFC 218 deep dip.
Which underdogs have worth? Which struggles should bettors avoid? How do you put together a potentially lucrative parlay on tap from the fights? Let’s have a look.
UFC Predictions and 219 Odds: Cyborg vs. Holm
There’s not any big’dog calling out at UFC 218 to me. But there is one man with this card who may defy some odds.
Francis Ngannou (-270) vs. Alistair Overeem (+230)
Alistair Overeem might get merked by a bigger and stronger puncher in Francis Ngannou, however at +230, he’s worth throwing a few pennies at. Normally I’d place this struggle from the stay-away class, but this really is a significant test for Ngannou, a guy who really hasn’t been tested yet.
Overeem is a veteran of the game and, though his chin might be suspect, he’s one of the greatest fight IQs in the heavyweight division. His smarts and technical kickboxing capability could provide us a large upset together with a profit. Do not go mad on this, though. Ngannou deserves to be favored, just not by this much. Overeem is worth a little bet.
Felice Herrig (-140) vs. Cortney Casey (+110)
Cortney Casey is not a massive dog, but her +105 moneyline would still net you a good yield or boost a parlay. Both fighters have looked strong, but stylistically, Casey seems to get the strength and size to give Herrig issues. The single woman that has been able to match Casey’s physicality was Claudia Gadelha and that woman is among the finest in the division. If Casey could pour on the strain, she can overwhelm Herrig and pick up a tiny upset win here. Again, do not go crazy and throw down your whole bankroll, but Casey is worth a few shekels.
