Misha Cirkunov vs. Volkan Oezdemir: Light Heavyweight
The UFC’s #7 ranked light heavyweight Misha Cirkunov (-450) opened up as a solid betting favorite, around -260, over the #5 ranked Volkan Oezdemir (+400), who opened up around +180. The betting public has shifted the line of Cirkunov to the heavy favorite realm of around -450, with Oezdemir’s tag skyrocketing to a robust line of about +400.
Pedro Munhoz vs. Damian Stasiak: Bantamweight
The UFC’s #12 ranked bantamweight Pedro Munhoz (-740) began his UFC Stockholm betting life as a rather large favorite at around -505, to the unranked Damian Stasiak (+595) and his opening line of about +335. Munhoz’ sizable tag has not seemed to scare off the gamblers, as his line has soared to over -833 on some betting sites. The underdog line of Stasiak has spiked as high as +700 at times, but appears to be settling right below the +600 mark.
The lack of alluring lines, leads us to believe that laying down any loot could inevitably land us in the Loser’s Lounge, so as far as setting a bet for UFC Stockholm, let’s just sit this Sunday out. NO ACTION.
