First, we'll take a look at the odds for the big fight. Colby Covington is a massive favorite heading into the matchup. The biggest reason for the drastic change was what happened when these two fighters fought Kamaru Usman.

For Covington, he lost again but it went the distance and it was a decision the most recent time. Masvidal got brutally knocked out, and ever since then, the nod has seemed to go towards Covington.

Don't tell the betting public that, though.

There's a couple of things to take into consideration here. First, the percentage of people who want to bet the moneyline on -350 odds is very small. Sure, the implied chance of Jorge Masvidal winning is just 27.78 percent but at least the payout would be palatable if he did pull it off.

Masvidal would have to win by knockout, which is something that he's been able to do before. Back in 2019, he knocked out Ben Askren in just five seconds.

He does have that power, and the betting public is banking on that to come to fruition this time around rather than taking the "safe" option in Colby Covington.
