Value Bets for UFC Fight Night
UFC Fight Night odds are available for every UFC Fight Night fight, including prop bets, and that’s where we find value for Saturday’s card.
The UFC fight card features excellent betting opportunities, especially in the Anthony Smith vs. Johnny Walker fight.
KO for Walker
UFC betting markets have Walker at +600 to win via decision and +120 via KO, TKO, or submission, which is the best value.
We expect the 20-7 to continue his winning streak on Saturday, following his impressive performance in knocking out Paul Craig at UFC 283.
The world was his oyster at one stage, and although his career has its roadblocks, he’s one of the most talented fighters to ever grace the Octagon.
If he’s serious about getting a light heavyweight title shot, he needs to send Smith packing.
Smith is a legend of the sport, and his 36 wins attest to that. However, he comes off a knockout loss against Magomed Ankalaev.
Only one fighter has come out ahead against Ankalaev, but we think the 34-year-old is past his best.
He should struggle against Walker, who will be looking for another knockout.

Garry to Remain Perfect
Ian Garry is a perfect 11-0, and he looks to take down another solid fighter in Daniel Rodriguez.
The welterweight is a 25-year-old prospect and the favorite with online gambling markets, which looks spot on.
He comes off a knockout win over Kenan Song, which followed two decision wins, and we think that’s where the value resides.
The sportsbook has Garry at +120 to win via decision against 17-3 Rodriguez, who is likely to give Garry a run for his money.

Rodriguez can’t be overlooked as the underdog, but Garry looks to have a brighter future, and most of the money has come for the Irish fighter.
He’s confident of a finish, but we think the fight goes the distance.
“I think he is the perfect opponent for me to showcase to the world how good I am at what I do,” Garry said. “He’s a striker. I’m a striker. Cool. Let’s go out there, and let’s show the people that you are not on my level. You’re the 15th-ranked guy in the world. Let me go out there. Let me stop you. Let me finish you.”
Ulberg Comes With Power
Carlos Ulberg is a Kiwi fighter who packs a lot of power, so he could dominate Ihor Potieria.
He’s only 8-1, but he was far too good for Nicolae Negumereanu with a first-round knockout at UFC 281.
It was his third consecutive win in the UFC, so the New Zealander is flying and ready to win again.
UFC live betting odds are expected to shorten if he has a good first round, and we expect him to finish the fight in the second or third round.
Bettors get -250 for Ulberg to win by knockout, and we don’t see much going wrong with that wager. He is a rare talent and on the rise in the division.
He’s a -430 chance to win outright, so the -250 is a good price.
