Amanda Nunes vs. Valentina Shevchenko: (W) Bantamweight Title

The UFC women’s bantamweight champion, Amanda Nunes (-110), opened up as the clear favorite at around -150, to the challenger Shevchenko’s underdog tag of about +120. It seemed as if Nunes was going to march into UFC 213 as the betting favorite, but an abundance of bread was dropped on Shevchenko, which resulted in a reversal of lines. Since the bulk bet on Shevchenko, the fight has trickled towards pick’em odds, as both competitors can now be found for -110 on multiple betting sites.

**The first match between these two bantamweights had the odds at -105/+110 for Nunes, with Shevchenko at about -115.

Yoel Romero vs. Robert Whittaker: Middleweight

Yoel Romero (+110) began his UFC 213 betting life as the favorite at around -130, with Robert Whittaker (-130) barely beginning as an underdog with a tag of +100. The betting lines have basically reversed, as Whittaker now owns lines north of -125 across the board, and Romero rocking a dog role on most sites, at around +110.

Gerald Meerschaert vs. Thiago Santos: Middleweight

Gerald Meerschaert showed up on the UFC 213 betting scene with a sturdy favorite line of -160, to Thiago Santos’ +120, but that status as the favorite was short lived. The betting public loved them some Santos at plus odds, and immediately made their moves, expelling Meerschaert from the land of the favorites, and into the role of the underdog, where he has resided ever since.

Suggestions:

Yoel Romero vs. Robert Whittaker: Middleweight

Robert Whittaker (-130) is a deadly striker with superb takedown defense, however, Yoel Romero (+100) has time and time again found a way to get the job done, plus he’s a freak of nature. Yoel Romero @ +100 is sexy!
