We’ve got UFC Vegas 27 going down this evening (May 22nd) from the now oh so familiar APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. Elite bantamweights will be gracing the main event when former champion, Cody Garbrandt, throws down with the #3 ranked, Rob Font. Bloody Elbow is here to provide the betting lines for this collision of slick handed warriors, as well as for the rest of the UFC Vegas 27 lineup.

When these betting odds first dropped, it was the former title holder in Garbrandt who was listed with a minus line of -140, with Font rocking an underdog value of +110. Since then, an influx of wagers on Rob have sent his moneyline out of plus territory and into its current favored home of -112. Cody’s line went the other way, and has shifted to a slim underdog tick of +102.

Do you think the oddsmakers are expecting this pick’em fight to end early? You better believe it! Font has finished 12 of his 18 victims for a solid finishing rate of 66%. That’s catching a body in two out of every three victories, which is pretty crazy. What’s even more wild is the fact that in 12 wins, Garbrandt has knocked out 10 opponents, and took the scorecards against two He has a wicked 83% rate of slaughter! Surprise, surprise! The prop bet ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ is packing a strongly favored betting line of -280, with a +220 comeback on the ‘Fight goes to decision’ option.

If this top-tier bantamweight tilt does indeed go the distance, then which fighter will be the one to produce the goods? The exotic wager ‘Font wins inside distance’ is trending around the +135 mark, with ‘Garbrandt wins inside distance’ living at a bit of a larger plus line of +190. For those looking for the over/under, gamblers can lay the price on ‘Under 2½ rounds’ at small favored cost of -127, or take the price on ‘Over 2½ rounds’ for a slight dog value of +112.
