UFC 270 Props
Gane Will Play Matador Against Ngannou
We covered extensively why we are riding with Ciryl Gane against Francis Ngannou for Saturday’s title unification heavyweight bout. Gane (10-0-0) will look to evade and frustrate Ngannou (16-3-0) en route to a decision or late finish.
It will be a sweaty ordeal for all of Gane’s backers, especially at -145 or whatever he is going for. Betting online on him to win by decision at +225 is also a nice strategy here, but he may just finish a prone Ngannou by the fourth or fifth round.
Instead, betting on this fight to go into the championship rounds is still at plus money. This covers most bases for when Gane finishes Ngannou late or goes to a decision without laying too much juice.
Pick: Fight To Start Round 4 – Yes +130
Moreno Outlasts Figueiredo To End Rivalry
Not to be completely overshadowed by the main event, Brandon Moreno and Deiveison Figueiredo meet for their trilogy fight. This historic flyweight championship bout favors Moreno (19-5-2) as he made short work of the former champion, Figueiredo (20-2-1) in their last tilt.
Figueiredo will once again be dangerous early. He’s the underdog, but if he’s to win this fight, it will be by starching Moreno early. We don’t see that happening as Moreno is incredibly durable and has cardio for days. He should, once again, weather Figueiredo’s storm and finish him when he gets tired.
Betting Morento to win inside the distance is at +160. If you’re feeling gutsier, Moreno to win by submission in rounds 3 to 5 is between +1400 to +2800 from the sportsbook.
Pick: B Moreno To Win By KO, TKO, DQ or Submission +160
Pereira Dusts Fialho Late
An action fighter stalking the undercard is Michel Pereira. He gets ready to put on a show against Ande Fialho. Pereira (26-11-0) is oozing with potential but can have questionable fight IQ. It’s unpredictable what he does here though there is a prop bet that has tremendous value: a late finish for him.
Pereira to win in round three is at +800, which is a likely scenario here given Fialho’s (14-3-0) history. The 27-year-old has shown he has a limited gas tank and can fade down the stretch. He will give Pereira a good fight for the first two rounds then succumb in the third.
Pick: M Pereira To Win In Round 3 +800
Hansen Breaks Jasudavicius Down
We’ve seen plenty of touts proclaim Jasmine Jasudavicius as the UFC’s best bet, mostly to fade Kay Hansen (she owns an OnlyFans account). Sure, Hansen (7-4-0) is a pretty fighter who may or may not be as invested in MMA as her backers would like her to be.
But the alternative is Jasudavicius (6-1-0) who is not only a decade older than Hansen but also less experienced. Jasudavicius is a striker that is hittable and has little to no grappling acumen. Wherever this fight goes, Hansen has the advantage. Bet on her to finish Jasudavicius.
