This Saturday sees Aleksandar Rakic vs. Anthony Smith as the main event of UFC Fight Night. The Austrian Rakic enters as favorite, unsurprising given his 12-2 record. At -275 he's a short priced favorite but expected to do the business.
Anthony Smith is only 32 but with a 33-15 record it feels like he's been around for some time, but he can't be ruled out and the +235 could prove to be good value.
The sportsbooks have Rakic as the clear favorite and it's something that has been reflected in the betting, with the Austrian making up 54.84% of the bets over the past month, with sharps and bettors keen to support Rakic, even at the short price.
Over the past 24 hours though we've seen a huge swing with Anthony Smith accounting for 71.43% of bets. What does this sizable amount of bets mean? We're not sure but the late surge of bets is something to keep an eye on ahead of the fight.
Aleksandar Rakic -275
Anthony Smith +235
