UFC Betting Lines: TUF Nations Finale
UFC betting lines for the upcoming TUF Nations Finale main and co-main events are already posted at most sportsbooks, and both fights offer UFC betting fans two closely handicapped options.
There are 29 prop UFC odds options available at 5Dimes, including OVER/UNDER moneylines.
In the main event Michael Bisping makes his long awaited return to the Octagon following a one-year hiatus to nurse an eye injury. Still ranked in the Top 10, Bisping will look to get back into title contention with a win over former Strikeforce contender Tim Kennedy.
Handicappers have the fight close but it’s Bisping who currently is listed as the favorite on the UFC betting lines.
The UFC odds -165 moneyline to win on Bisping at 5Dimes may offer the best value on the Brit contender, other than perhaps the +130 prop option on him winning via decision. This fight is expected to go the distance as the -225 option on the fight going OVER 4.5 rounds would indicate.
If you like the Kennedy +145 upset option to win at Bovada you may also like the +285 on him at 5Dimes to win by decision. This fight looks like the type of opportunity where it could be worth the risk to throw a few units on either fighter winning via-split/majority decision. Those longshots current pay +890 for Kennedy and +560 on Bisping at 5Dimes.
The co-main event is even closer as the favorite changes depending on the sportsbook you choose. At Bovada the price on Cote is at -112 and action on the Noke win costs -102 on the UFC betting lines. Like the main event, this three-rounder is also expected to go the distance, but unlike The Ultimate Fighter Nations headliner, action on the OVER 2.5 rounds option in this fight is coming at a much cheaper -155 price.
Cote will bring more experience and toughness than Noke and should be able to put enough pressure and pace on his opponent to out-strike him for the victory. For that reason Cote inside the distance at +280 is another 5Dimes prop option that has some value.
