The final UFC event of the 2017 calendar year goes down this Saturday night with UFC 219 from Las Vegas, and Bloody Elbow has your midweek betting odds front and center. The marquee matchup has Cris Cyborg (-370) in her tightest line since her bout with Gina Carano in 2009, as she takes on the UFC’s former bantamweight champion, Holly Holm (+330), who of course is notorious for her +700 upset KO of Ronda Rousey. For what it’s worth, UFC 219 will be the millionth time Cyborg is the heaviest betting favorite on the entire card, but at least this time her line is actually reasonable.

The co-main event will see Top-5 lightweights in action as the #2 Khabib Nurmagomedov (-280) look to remain undefeated against the #4 ranked Edson Barboza (+240). Saturday night will be Fav Central Station as eight of the ten UFC 219 tilts involve the betting favorite owning a line of -220 or larger. (-165) Carlos Condit vs. Neil Magny (+145) will be as close as we’re going to get to a pick’em fight; there will be no even odds this weekend.

Saturday’s UFC 219 main card will air live on Pay-Per-View at 10:00 P.M. EST with the prelims starting at 8:00 P.M. EST on FS1. The Exclusive Fight Pass prelims will begin at 7:30 P.M. EST.
