UFC 270 is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 22 in Anaheim, California, and will feature two major title fights and a series of compelling matches. We've examined the card closely, and have compiled the five best bets to make you the big winner on fight night.

Said Nurmagomedov by Decision (+110)

Sun, January 23 2022, 3:00 AM

Stamann, Cody

Moneyline

Nurmagomedov, Said

Moneyline

From a momentum standpoint, Nurmagomedov has everything in his favor, as Cody Stamann enters this bout on a two-fight skid. Since joining the UFC, Nurmagomedov has either finished opponents in the first round with strikes or he's ended up going the distance. Stamann’s reliable chin and Nurmagomedov’s superior skills has a decision win for Nurmagomedov written all over it.

Rodolfo Vieira by Submission (+100)

Vieira, Rodolfo

Moneyline

Turman, Wellington

Moneyline

Vieira doesn’t have the toughest assignment on the card against journeyman Wellington Turman, but his impeccable submission skills should shine here. Turman has never tapped out in his MMA career, but he’s been felled by inferior talents in the past, and Vieira is sure to test his mettle. Taking Vieira by submission is the best possible prop if you're going with the prohibitive favorite here.

Michel Pereira by KO, TKO, or DQ (+188)

Sun, January 23 2022, 3:00 AM

Pereira, Michel

Moneyline

Fialho, André

Moneyline

As Pereira can make his case for being a top welterweight by scoring a highlight-reel stoppage against the debuting Andre Fialho. Pereira’s awkward style and fast footwork will eventually get Fialho off balance before landing the big shot that could end the fight. It’s too big of a step-up for Fialho, so take Pereira to finish him.

Brandon Moreno by decision (+250)

Sun, January 23 2022, 4:00 AM

Moreno, Brandon

Moneyline

Figueiredo, Deiveson

Moneyline

After two fights, it’s safe to say that Moreno has the overall edge over Deiveson Figueiredo. He’s demonstrated the ability to absorb Figueiredo’s power, can outwork him, and scored a submission win in their previous bout. Though Moreno could find a way to win via submission once more, we see a more methodical contest between these two, so a Moreno decision at +250 is hard to pass up.

Ciryl Gane by decision (+300)

Sun, January 23 2022, 5:00 AM

Ngannou, Francis

Moneyline

Gane, Ciryl

Moneyline

We’ve seen Gane win with his smarts and grit against the best heavyweights in the UFC, and he is primed to score a huge win over Francis Ngannou this weekend. While Ngannou is always a threat, Gane’s sharper striking and mobility will stand out and drain Ngannou’s energy. Once the fight seems like it’s in the bag, Gane will run out the clock to avoid calamity, and win by decision for the biggest prop of the night.
