It’s fight day for UFC Vegas 45, which will be happening from the familiar APEX facility in Nevada, USA. We’ve got a heavyweight main event in store as the UFC’s #3 ranked, Derrick Lewis, will throw down with the #7 ranked, Chris Daukaus. Bloody Elbow is here to bring you the betting lines for this battle of big men, and a couple of prop bets to boot.
The oddsmakers are siding with the streaking Chris Daukaus to get the win here over a rebounding Derrick Lewis — but not by a great deal. Daukaus is sporting a -145 moneyline, with a $100 bet standing to return a total of $168.97. That leaves Lewis in the underdog slot, and his dog tag is residing around the +125 mark. That means a winning $100 ticket on Derrick will bring back a complete payout of $225.
The bookies do not foresee this five-rounder making it to the scorecards. The prop bet ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ possesses a heavily favored moneyline of -450, with a +300 comeback on the ‘Fight goes to decision’ option. The proposition ‘Daukaus wins inside distance’ is barely holding on to an underdog value of +110, while ‘Lewis wins inside distance’ is holding a more lucrative line of +165. Going a step further, you’ll find the wager ‘Daukaus wins by TKO/KO’ trending at +120, and then ‘Lewis wins by TKO/KO’ sitting at +175.
