Legal sports betting sites favor heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier to retain his title against La Bête Noire Derrick Lewis. Cormier and Lewis will clash at UFC 230 on November 3rd at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. DC won the heavyweight champion from Stipe Miocic. Cormier KO’d Miocic in the first round of their July 7th bout in Las Vegas, Nevada. Cormier has not lost since January 3rd, 2015. He has had six wins and one no contest ever since, including light heavyweight title defenses. Since he also holds that belt. On the other hand, Lewis has won his last three straight fights. As well as nine of his last 10. His most recent outing was a KO win over Alexander Volkov at UFC 229 on October 6th in Las Vegas.
DERRICK LEWIS +555 vs. DANIEL CORMIER -805
Weight class: Heavy
For the UFC Heavyweight Championship
Bellator light heavyweight champion Ryan Bader isn’t surprised the best online sportsbooks favor Cormier. “I think Derrick Lewis is funny, the whole deal, I like his personality, I like his post-fight speeches and all that kind of stuff,” Bader told MMAjunkie Radio. “But I really think this could be Cormier’s easiest fight in a long, long time. I see Cormier going out there, jabbing him in the face a few times, hitting the outside single, putting Derrick on his butt and it’s going to be game over, pretty much. [Cormier]’s like, ‘Wait, I get to go out there, put my heavyweight title on the line and fight a guy who just said that he doesn’t even deserve to be in a title fight? That he’s tired and can’t go five rounds? Of course Cormier’s going to do that. I actually think Cormier’s going to run away with that, for sure.”
JACK MARSHMAN +170 vs. KARL ROBERSON -200
Weight class: Middle
Online sports betting sites see Baby K defeating Jack “Hammer” Marshman. Even though Roberson is coming off his first professional MMA loss. He lost by technical submission to Cezar Ferreira at UFC 224 on May 12th in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. His record dropped to 6-1 in his first fight outside of the United States. At least he can blame it on Rio.
Marshman is also coming off a lost. In his case, the second in his last three fights. He tapped out to a rear naked choke applied by Antonio Carlos Junior. That was at UFC Fight Night 119 on October 28th, 2017 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He had previously lost by TKO to Thiago Santos at UFC Fight Night 105 on February 19, 2017 in Nova Scotia, Canada. Sandwiched in between those losses was a unanimous decision win over Ryan Janes. That occurred on July 16, 2017 at UFC Fight Night 113 in Glasgow, Scotland.
DEREK BRUNSON +270 vs. ISRAEL ADESANYA -340
Weight class: Middle
Finally, the Last Stylebender is favored by online sports betting sites to beat Brunson. Adesanya is undefeated in 14 professional MMA fights, the last three of which have taken place in UFC. Most recently, he defeated Brad Tavares by UD at The Ultimate Fighter: Undefeated Finale. That happened on July 6th in Las Vegas. Brunson has lost three of his last five bouts. Including a KO loss to Ronaldo Souza at UFC on Fox 27 on January 27th in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA.
Our Picks: Lewis could possibly last longer than Miocic, but Cormier will wrap it up no later than the third.
Baby K has not seen a second round since his debut on June 5th, 2015. Let’s say he submits Marshman in the first.
Brunson also hasn’t seen a second round in his last three fights. Nor in eight of his last nine. The younger Adesanya will put him down in the first or, at the latest, second.
