The best bets and resources to make you more profitable
It’s a huge fight night on Saturday, July 30. We have UFC 277, which is everything that MMA fans could possibly want. Brandon Moreno vs Kai Kara-France, Amanda Nunes vs. Julianna Peña – what could be better?
In this betting preview, I’ll be sharing my top UFC betting picks & predictions for 7/30/22. I think I have the top MMA bets for UFC 277. I think there’s a lot of value in both the main and preliminary cards.
Let’s start with the biggest fight of the night, Nunes vs Peña. This is a rematch. Peña shocked the UFC world with a win against Amanda Nunes in their initial battle. She won by submission in the second round of UFC 269. This fight was on December 11, 2021.
Nunes will look to bounce back in UFC 277. As seen below, she’s currently a heavy favorite against Peña in the rematch. The best moneyline price on Amanda Nunes is -270 odds on Caesars sportsbook. The best price on Peña is +230 on DraftKings.
As a sports bettor, you should always be looking to get the possible odds in your location. This is critical as a sports bettor.
If anything, I’d lean to bet Peña in this fight. I think +230 moneyline odds is great value. However, I don’t have an official moneyline bet in this UFC betting preview. Rather, I have a bet on the total rounds.
My official betting pick for Nunes vs Peña 2 is over 2.5 total rounds. This is a two unit play for me on Caesars sportsbook. Nunes & Peña are both threats, but I think both fighters will take a conservative approach in the first few rounds.
Peña is trying to pull off a massive upset twice against Nunes, who is well known to be the greatest female fighter of all time in the UFC. I think this will be a close fight in UFC 277. The moneyline odds on Peña are nowhere near as good as they were in UFC 269, so I’m holding off the moneyline. I also don’t love any “Method of Victory” bets for this fight. The play I really like is the over 2.5 total rounds.
