We’re getting a double dose of title fights this Saturday (October 30th) as a special early UFC 267 card is going down from the Etihad Arena in Abu Dhabi. The top of the billing is getting the UFC’s light heavyweight champion, Jan Blachowicz, putting his strap on the line against a man who spent the last seven-years climbing his way back up to the mountaintop, Glover Teixeira. The co-main event will be an interim bantamweight title fight between former champ, Petr Yan, and the ever-dangerous, Cory Sandhagen. Bloody Elbow is here to hook you up with all of the midweek betting odds for UFC 267.
As much as Glover Teixeira winning a UFC title would be a heart warming story of perseverance, the oddsmakers do not expect the dominant run of Jan Blachowicz to come to a close this Saturday. Jan is clocking in as a hefty -355 betting favorite, with a $100 bet on the champ standing to make a total of $128.17. As for the challenger, Glover’s straight up moneyline can be found with a sizable underdog value of +270. That means a successful $100 gamble on Teixeira would see a complete return of $370.
Now let’s take a look at the UFC 267 co-main event. Petr Yan is on deck as a strong -280 betting favorite, with a winning $100 ticket cashing out $135.71 altogether. That leaves Cory Sandhagen in the underdog position, and his moneyline is percolating around +270. The only time we’ve ever seen a UFC loss from the former 135-pound champion in Yan, was when he beat himself in his last fight by illegally kneeing the now champ, Aljamain Sterling, in the face. Of course the bookies are going to mark him as the betting favorite over Cory Sandhagen, who is coming off of a loss to another person, former bantamweight king in T.J. Dillashaw.
