Volkanovski by KO One of UFC 298 Best Prop Bets

UFC 298 promises to deliver, and we have three of the best prop bets for the pay-per-view card at Honda Center.

Volkanovski by KO One of UFC 298 Best Prop Bets

Volk to Reaffirm Superiority

Volkanovski lost his most recent fight, but that came when fighting Islam Makhachev for the lightweight title.

He’s much better suited to fighting at featherweight, where he has dominated the division for years.

The sportsbook believes he’ll beat Topuria, and so do we. The Australian has the class edge, and his most recent featherweight fight resulted in Yair Rodriguez getting knocked out in the third round.

It’s tough to bet against a guy, despite being 35, who hasn’t been tested in this division since fighting Max Holloway in 2022.

He has already come out saying he wants to finish the fight in the mid-stages, so we’re happy to back him to win by KO, TKO, or DQ.

That option pays +240 with sports betting markets, and those odds are too good to pass up.

We’re not discrediting the record of Topuria, but he’s yet to fight in anything close to this magnitude. That will count against the challenger at UFC 298, so stick with the champion, who has a few title defenses left in him.


Tafa With Quick KO

UFC odds for Feb 17 have Justin Tafa picked to win, and the only way he knows how to win is via knockout.

Facing off against Marcos Rogerio de Lima, a seasoned competitor with a record of 21-10-1, Tafa enters the ring with a formidable opponent. However, Tafa’s prowess lies in his ability to deliver a devastating blow that could end the fight in the blink of an eye.

Boasting a record of 7-3, including a remarkable first-round knockout of Austen Lane in a mere 1 minute and 22 seconds, Tafa has established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the octagon.

The New Zealander’s fights seldom drag on beyond the early rounds, showcasing his reputation as one of the UFC’s premier one-punch fighters.

We thought he would be paying less than +135 to win by knockout with betting online markets. He doesn’t want to leave the first round, and he goes headhunting from the outset.

He fights similarly to countryman Mark Hunt, and he could be a heavyweight title contender.


Get Carried Away With Garry

Ian Machado Garry is a new-generation fighter, and we don’t see his unbeaten 13-0 run coming to an end.

Geoff Neal is a quality fighter at 15-5, but Garry is one of the more promising fighters in the UFC, and we’re in his camp.

The 26-year-old is the favorite to win, but we’re more interested in the +300 for Garry to win by KO, TKO, or DQ.

Most of the money has come for Garry to win by decision at +150, but he’s a fighter who loves sending a message. He will be gunning for the knockout, and UFC 298 could be packed full of finishes.

We’re including him in our UFC 298 prop picks, and the main card fight could steal the show at Honda Center.
