UFC Vancouver betting odds: Gaethje vs. Cerrone majorly favored to not reach judges

New, comments

Check out the betting odds for Saturday’s UFC Vancouver event, where Justin Gaethje is favored to get past Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in the main event.

Justin Gaethje

The world’s premiere brand of MMA is returning to Canada for a Vancouver Fight Night this Saturday, September 14th, and Bloody Elbow has the 411 on the betting lines.

The main event promises to be the personification of violence when two proven killers, Justin Gaethje and Donald Cerrone, collide for a scheduled 25-minutes. The UFC’s #5 ranked lightweight, Gaethje owns the favored slot here with a moneyline of -185. Having seen plus lines in his last-six outings, ‘Cowboy’ is once again the betting underdog—currently residing at the +160 mark.

Is there anyone on planet Earth that genuinely believes that these two savages can survive the entirety of five-rounds together without one of them getting put away? Well, the oddsmakers don’t seem to think so. The prop bet ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ is massively (and rightfully) favored at a monstrous value of -475. Going back the other way, for the one or two people predicting this fireworks show will reach the scorecards, ‘Fight goes to decision’ owns a big ol’ fat underdog mark of +325.

There’s a great chance that the UFC Vancouver co-main event is also an epic display of carnage. There, the highly skillful (yet increasingly brittle) Glover Teixeira meets the venomous (yet submittable) Nikita Krylov at 205-pounds. This unique clash of styles has the sportsbooks viewing this matchup as a classic toss up. The company’s #9 ranked Teixeira is slightly more favored here at -115. The #13 ranked Krylov is an option at -105.

Just like the UFC Vancouver headliner, the bookies don’t expect the co-main to need any judges to decide a winner. The exotic bet ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ is stoutly favored here, making bettors lay the price at -280. On the flip-side, gamblers can take the price on ‘Fight goes to decision’ at +200. For the record, Krylov has never been involved with a decision in 31-professional MMA fights. Read that again. He’s either killing or, well... you know. Across the table, Teixeira has only seen two decisions across his last ten-fights. It’s really hard to see these guys needing three judges to determine a winner.
