UFC 251 Odds: Usman Favorite But Bettors Like Masvidal
Usman a short price favorite but bettors like Jorge Masvidal for UFC 251 clash
This weekend sees UFC 251 and one of the most anticipated fights of 2020. Kamaru Osman meets Jorge Masvidal for the UFC Welterweight Championship.
The Nigerian Usman is heavy favorite at -300 with Masvidal considered an outsider at +230, per the latest odds from FanDuel. However Oddschecker data shows that bettors have been flocking to the Florida-born Masvidal despite him being the underdog.
A surprisingly high 47% of bets have been on Masvidal, which is unusually high for a fighter at those odds. It's certainly one we'll be keeping an eye on as the fight draws closer.
Do these bettors know something the books don't? Quite possibly.
Elsewhere on the card Alexander Volkanovski is a short price to beat Max Holloway, with Pete Yan also odds on to beat Jose Aldo.
