In this blog, I will provide you with three degenerate bets worth taking a bite out of. This truly is the degenerate gamblers guide to UFC 259.
Amanda Nunes vs. Megan Anderson – Nunes by technical decision (+450)
Amanda Nunes is the pound-for-pound toughest girl in the world of fighting, and this might include the men too. Nunes is a two-division champion and has won eleven straight fights in the UFC. The last time Nunes lost was in 2014. Standing in the Lionesses way is Australia’s, Megan Anderson. The 31-year old is coming off a huge knockout win over Norma Dumont, which is impressive, but this is not why we like the Nunes by decision line. We love this line because, in her 15 career fights, Anderson has never been knocked out. Anderson has shown the world that her chin is game. If she can withstand the power of Nunes early on, I believe she can drag this fight out. I still expect Nunes to win all five rounds but getting a Nunes victory at +450 as opposed to a -910 money line.
Israel Adesanya vs. Jan Blachowicz – Adesanya wins in round 3 (+750)
With Israel Adesanya weighing in at 200.5 pounds, he will be the third lightest Light Heavyweight to compete in a title fight. With his height and technical skill, it won’t matter Blachowicz will be fighting one of the pound-for-pound best in the world. Now the thing we are banking on here, degenerates, is that Jan will be able to eat Izzy’s shots as more powerful fighters have definitely hit him in his career. This, mixed with the fact that Izzy will look to feel his opponent out in a new division before getting comfortable enough to go for the kill, makes this third-round line a no-brainer. Izzy in round three is my most confident scumbag bet of the night. I think we see a new champ-champ.
Dominick Cruz vs. Casey Kenney – Under 2.5 rounds (+205)
Dominick Crus is making his much-anticipated return to the octagon fighting for just the second time since 2016. Cruz will be looking to avenge the most vicious loss of his career. Now I know Kenney is the favorite and doesn’t really possess knockout power. The thinking behind this bet is we hope karma comes back to bite him for his comments about Megan Anderson, and he gets dropped early. No matter what bets you decide to throw down this weekend, remember to know your limit and stay within it.
