It’s time for a heavyweight MMA title fight! We’ve got UFC 260 kicking off tonight (March 27th) from the promotion’s APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, headlined with the current baddest man on the planet, Stipe miocic, defending his heavyweight belt against Francis Ngannou for the second time. Well, it’s actually a different title since Stipe lost the one he first defended against Francis but then won it back, but you know what I mean. Anyways, have a look at the betting lines for these two behemoths, as well as for the rest of the card’s roster.
As of our midweek betting odds post, we had pick’em odds in the UFC 260 main event. Since the weigh-ins, however, the challenger has pulled away as the clear favorite, with the champion now only being offered up with a plus line. Ngannou’s straight up moneyline is available at a cost of -132, with Miocic on deck as a +122 underdog. It looks like the betting public has spoken.
Not only is Francis favored to get the win, but the odds also have him doing so in less than 25-minutes. The prop bet ‘Ngannou wins inside distance’ holds a slightly favored moneyline of -120, with ‘Not Ngannou inside distance’ trending at -110. Going back the other way, ‘Miocic wins inside distance’ is on the table with an underdog value of +225, with ‘Not Miocic inside distance’ being substantially favored at -285.
Ngannou is so great at knocking people silly that his KO prop here holds a minus line. The proposition ‘Ngannou wins by TKO/KO’ is available at a mark of -110, with ‘Any other result’ sitting around -120. Despite Stipe having slept plenty of his opponents, we’ve never seen Ngannou get knocked out before, let alone badly hurt. ‘Miocic wins by TKO/KO’ is rocking a sizable dog tag of +225, with ‘Any other result’ moderately favored at -335.
