Jorge Masvidal vs. Nate Díaz Mybookie Sportsbook Odds
- Nate Diaz +135
- Jorge Masvidal -165
Betting Nate Díaz
Before we proceed any further I’ve gotta get something off my chest. This will be the UFC’s 500th live event. This is really the best main event they could come up with? And to make it worse, UFC President Dana White has confirmed that a BMF (baddest motherfucker) belt will be awarded to the winner of the match. So Uncle Dana keeps copying pro wrestling. Now he is ripping off Taz’s FTW championship belt. Whatever.
Diaz is coming off a unanimous decision win over Anthony Pettis. At UFC 241 on August 17, 2019 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. That was just Díaz’s fourth win in his last eight bouts. Which might explain his odds at the best online sportsbooks.
Betting Jorge Masvidal
He is the favorite of online sports betting sites for this fight. But you already know that. In his latest outing, Masvidal performed the fastest knockout in UFC history. He sent Ben Askren to dream street with the Flying Knee of Death five seconds into the first round. At UFC 239 on July 6, 2019 at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada.
Pick: Masvidal’s record isn’t anything to write home about either. However, he does have the momentum coming in. And he will be better rested. He barely broke a sweat the last time out.
- Darren Till +135
- Kelvin Gastelum -165
Betting Darren Till
The Gorilla popped his losing streak cherry to Masvidal at UFC Fight Night: Till vs. Masvidal. On March 16, 2019 at the O2 Arena in London, England. Till had suffered his first career loss in his previous outing. He tapped out to Tyrone Woodley at UFC 228. On September 8, 2018 at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
Betting Kelvin Gastelum
He is also coming off a loss. Gas lost to Israel Adesanya by UD at UFC 236. On April 13, 2019 at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia. But that was for the interim UFC Middleweight Championship. So it doesn’t really count. When you fight a meaningless fight over a meaningless title, it’s a meaningless loss.
Pick: Till is the underdog of online sports betting sites for a reason. His confidence has got to be shaking after losing for the first time. And then losing twice for the first time, and back-to-back no less. I’m going to have to go with Gastelum on this one.
- Vicente Luque +100
- Stephen Thompson -130
Betting Vicente Luque
The Silent Assasin is on a six-fight winning streak. His hit list includes Niko Price, Chad Laprise, Jalin Turner, Bryan Barberena, and Derrick Krantz. As well as Mike Perry, whom he beat by split decision after three rounds. At UFC Fight Night: Shevchenko vs. Carmouche 2. On August 10, 2019 at Antel Arena in Montevideo, Uruguay. Not too shabby. But then you don’t have to be all that silent to sneak up on any of those guys.
Betting Stephen Thompson
Let’s summarize Wonderboy’s last five bouts. He fought Woodley to a draw. Then lost to Woodley by decision. Next he defeated Masvidal by UD. Lost to Till by UD. Finally, he lost to Pettis by KO (punches) at UFC Fight Night: Thompson vs. Pettis. On March 23, 2019 at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.
Pick: I’m going to go against the trend on this one and pick the underdog. Thompson is more experience, which is a polite way of saying he’s old. And he hasn’t had straight wins since 2016. I think he will join Luque’s list of dead bodies.
