Benavidez enters the fight as a +184 underdog, in stark contrast to the first fight when he was favored at -155. Figueiredo, the Brazilian, is favorite at -210, but there are still questionmarks around his chances of winning this Flyweight Championship contest.
Our very own handicapper has picked Benavidez to upset the odds and data from DraftKings indicates that 56% of the handle on this fight has been placed on the American.
