The best betting props for UFC 250
UFC 250 takes place Saturday, June 6, and the card is stacked with talent and prop bets from top to bottom.
Let’s take a look at the most attractive prop bets of the night.
Ian Heinisch via points (+150)
Heinisch is looking to bounce back after a two-fight skid, and his preliminary bout with Gerald Meerschaert has him a -130 favorite.
Meerschaert is a durable fighter and has only been stopped twice in his career, but Heinisch’s work rate and striking prowess should carry the day, in what is expected to be a close fight. Should Heinisch win, it’ll be by decision, and this prop takes you from a -130 on the moneyline to +150 for a decision win.
Alex Perez via points (+180)
The fading Jussier Formiga is in tough against the steadily improving Perez, but Formiga's durability and caginess almost certainly ensures this fight will go the distance.
While Perez has the athleticism and skill to dominate this fight, his lack of power is evident. He has scored only four knockouts in his nine-year career. Perez is on the upswing and bettors would be wise to take him on points at +180.
Sean O'Malley vs. Eddie Wineland, fight to go the distance (+165)
O’Malley is getting a showcase slot, as a potential challenger to the winner of the Cody Garbrandt/Raphael Assuncao fight later on the card, and he is an overwhelming favorite to beat down sacrificial lamb Wineland.
Wineland hasn’t been active for a year, but he is tough enough to last three rounds with the explosive O’Malley. You’ll have to drop a fortune to get money on O’Malley’s expected win, but Wineland surviving the rounds gets +165.
Cody Garbrandt to win in Rounds 1-3 (+175)
If anyone is in need of a big win on this card, it’s Garbrandt. He is winless over the last four years but is expected to turn the page at the expense of the similarly desperate Assuncao.
Garbrandt is the better striker and has impeccable ground defense. He is going to enjoy an opponent who will play to his strengths.
Amanda Nunes to win by KO/TKO/DQ in Round 3 (+700)
As the odds continue to signal an overwhelming victory for Nunes, the best way to make money off of the main event is to wager on how long the overmatched Felicia Spencer will survive.
Spencer was out of her league against Cris Cyborg two fights ago, and Nunes is just as strong and far more versatile. It’s hard to see Spencer lasting beyond the third.
