Online UFC sportsbooks have determined their faves and dogs for the main card of UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs. Shahbazyan a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship on August 1, 2020, at the UFC APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The following odds have been taken from XBet Sportsbook, one of the best online sportsbooks.
Derek Brunson vs. Edmen Shahbazyan Money Line
Online UFC sportsbooks aren’t too keen on Brunson. He is a fighter with knockout power and who can pick up the pace and finish things quickly. On the other hand, the line is understandable because Brunson switches on and off. He can also be a little careless standing up. Brunson often gets ahead of himself and has a tendency to leave his chin open when throwing. If Brunson makes those little mistakes against Shahbazyan, he’s going to be looking at the lights pretty soon. Let’s side with Shahbazyan, and pick him to win within distance.
Jennifer Maia vs. Joanne Calderwood Betting Odds
|Joanne Calderwood||-150 |
Calderwood is the more tested fighter as well as the more balanced fighter at this point. Calderwood has more to draw from in her standing attack with her kickboxing background. Her BJJ is also slightly better than Maia’s. Maia is more of a points fighter. She does have a boxing background, but she doesn’t have mind-blowing power and her last eight fights have gone to the judges. It is difficult picturing either of these fighters finishing the other, so let’s side with Calderwood in a decision win.
Randy Brown vs. Vicente Luque Betting Odds
Online sportsbooks favor Luque because of his pure boxing skills. And how he looked a few months. Plus the fact he probably has the power advantage if this fight stays vertical. It’s tough to bet against Luque after what we witness a couple of months ago in Jacksonville. Nonetheless, Brown is a live underdog due to the size advantage. And the fact Luque is going to have to take it if he wants to dish it out. If Brown lands a clean shot, he’s going to win this one. This has a chance to be a seesaw match. Let’s take our chances with Brown to upset.
Bobby Green vs. Lando Vannata UFC Betting Odds
This line doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Vannata isn’t really that much to write home about and you should not lay juice with him in the shape he is in now. Green dominated his last fight and his athleticism should become even more evident in a smaller cage. Vannata doesn’t have the finish ability and is constantly in close fights. Green has the value in a fight that he is probably going to win. It’s hard to see Vannata as something special, let alone in the role of the favorite. Take Green in what some might consider an upset.
Trevin Giles vs. Kevin Holland Betting Odds
This ought to be a fun fight between two dudes with heavy hands and who can finish things at the drop of a hat. The difference is that Holland is a little more experienced and polished regardless of where the fight goes. A massive reach and pure boxing skills give Holland the edge on his feet. And he can also take advantage of Giles’ aggression. Giles sometimes propels forward while swinging, and that opens him up to counters. Holland will no doubt take advantage if there’s an opening. Take Holland to get his second win of the year.
