UFC Vegas 32 is going down tonight from the promotion’s now oh so familiar APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. The top of the billing will be graced with two of the world’s very best 135-pounders when the #2 rated, Cory Sandhagen, welcomes back the former champ, T.J. Dillashaw. Bloody Elbow is front and center with the betting lines for this explosive matchup of elite bantamweights, as well as for the rest of the UFC Vegas 32 tussles.
Oddsmakers and gamblers alike are feeling them some Sandhagen. Cory is listed as a -200 betting favorite, with $100 bet possibly winning you $50, plus your initial hundo back. As for the former champ that defeated himself to lose the belt, Dillashaw is sitting with an underdog value of +170. Tossing $100 on T.J. would potentially see a total return of $270.
Sandhagen has the hot hand here for sure. Not only has he been active while Dillashaw has been sidelined from his PED suspension, but he’s also been catching big name bodies like Marlon Moraes and Frankie Edgar. It’s easy to see why he’s the betting favorite here, and Dillashaw the dog.
There are so many x-factors going on with the former king, such as the usual dilemma of aging in a lighter division where speed is a must. Henry Cejudo swiftly took T.J’s lunch in his last fight in January of 2019, and then it was suspension time. Add in the mystery of how Dillashaw will perform ‘off of PED’s,’ and sprinkle in a dash of ring rust theory, and we’ve got ourselves a full blown case of recency bias. That’s not to say that Dillashaw will win, but he is certainly a live dog at his current line.
Not only is Sandhagen favored to win, but he’s also projected to get a finish. The prop bet ‘Sandhagen wins inside distance’ can be had for a favored cost of -120, with a -110 comeback on ‘Not Sandhagen inside distance.’ Going back the other way, ‘Dillashaw wins inside distance’ is attached to a sizable +275 under value, with ‘Not Dillashaw inside distance’ heavily favored at -400. So of course the bookies are banking on this bout ending early. Gamblers can lay the price on the proposition ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ at a steep cost of -300, or take the price on ‘Fight goes to decision’ at value of +220.
