3 Bets To Make For UFC 277 Main Card

  • Amanda Nunes has +140 odds to win by KO, TKO, or DQ at UFC 277.
  • Brandon Moreno is the -220 favorite to beat Kai Kara-France.
  • Magomed Ankalaev is the heaviest favorite on the main card at -575.

DALLAS – The main card of UFC 277 will feature two massive and important fights and plenty of big-named fighters as well. The main event on the card is a title fight for the women’s bantamweight championship between Amanda Nunes and Julianna Pena.

Aside from the normal fight lines that are available, there are plenty of prop bets for the main card that offer tons of value as well.

Main Event: Amanda Nunes Vs. Julianna Penna

Method Of Victory

  • Amanda Nunes By KO, TKO, DQ +140

Yes, Pena did submit Nunes in their last fight to win the title, however, Nunes is going into this fight as a heavy -275 favorite being that she has never in her career lost two consecutive fights. While there is some value in her moneyline odds to win outright, at +140 there is even higher value that she’ll win by KO, TKO, or DQ.

Nunes is the all-time leader in knockouts (6) and finishes (8) in the women’s bantamweight division and also has 13 knockouts in her 21 wins.

Being that Pena got the better of Nunes in the last fight, it is hard seeing Nunes not explode on her in the rematch with a statement win.

Co-Main Event: Brandon Moreno Vs. Kai Kara-France

Method Of Victory

  • Brandon Moreno By Points +130

When first looking at the fight odds here, some might think that Brandon Moreno is slightly undervalued and that he should be a heavier favorite than -220. However, these are two evenly matched fighters just based on their style of fighting.

The only major edge that Moreno has on Kara-France is his five-round fight experience being that Kara-France has none. With that, Kara-France could tire out much quicker than Moreno.

Backing this fight going the distance is that both fighters have done so more often than not in their recent fights. Moreno has gone the distance in three of his last six fights including his last fight while Kara-France has gone the distance in four of his last seven fights.

Magomed Ankalaev Vs. Anthony Smith

  • Magomad Ankalaev -575
  • Anthony Smith +400

While there are less expensive odds to take on Magomed Ankalaev, it is hard to gauge what is happening at this point in his career in terms of how he’ll win this fight. Looking at his last six fights he won the first three by KO/TKO and his last three all came by submission.

Something to note is that it seems his competition has improved over that span which could be the reason he is going the distance more often, however, his knockout power is proven with nine in his 17 wins. Regardless, Ankalaev has only lost one fight in his career which was his UFC debut.

As for Anthony Smith, age could be catching up with him at 34 years of age losing three of his last seven fights and won one of those seven fights by a doctors stoppage.

All in all, this is some easy money to be made on Ankalaev, and his odds could even be used in any parlay as it would slightly boost the odds.
