UFC Fight Night 31 Betting Preview
The UFC will travel to Fort Campbell, Kentucky for Wednesday, November 6 to put on a fight card for the troops that will include two women’s bantamweight bouts and a main event between 7th Special Forces Group Staff Sergeant Tim Kennedy and Rafael Natal. UFC betting fans can already get moneyline action on the main card fights as well as UFC Fight Night 31 prop bet options.
Former Strikeforce Middleweight contender Kennedy is currently handicapped as a heavy -360 favorite against Natal, who will pay +300 at 5Dimes for the upset. UFC odds that might offer some better value would include Kennedy by KO/TKO at +255 or Kennedy inside the distance at +144.
UFC betting fans will also get to see the dynamic Sambo fighter Rustam Khabilov when he steps into the Octagon against Jorge Masvidal. The Russian should be too much for Masvidal to handle and is currently coming with a -170 price. Masvidal has never fought a Sambo fighter professionally and the upset MMA odds of +150 on him at 5Dimes look a little slim for the risk.
No. 4 ranked Liz Carmouche will return to the Octagon against No. 6 ranked Alexis Davis in what should be another entertaining matchup in the UFC Women’s Bantamweight division. Action on Carmouche opened at -170 at 5Dimes and has steadily climbed to the current -220 price.
Davis has elite grappling and could upset Carmouche with a submission win. If she does pull off the upset it will likely come via submission, which gives the Davis wins inside the distance option at +495 some heavy value. The Carmouche by decision at +155 is the most likely outcome for her to win the fight, and combining with Carmouche to win (-220) and fight goes to a decision (-155) makes a good parlay trio.
