Holloway vs The Korean Zombie Betting Preview: Who Will Win?
In light of some suffocating chalk on Holloway, here are the best bets I see for this matchup.
How To Bet Holloway
He's the best boxer in the UFC, baby! Much is made of Holloway's lightning hands — and for good reason. The Hawaiian defended his honor in his last fights vs Arnold Allen, staving off the hungry Englishman for 25 minutes and even knocking him off his feet in the final round. And that's why the matchup vs TKZ is so strange.
Zombie isn't a contender at this point in his career. So, if you're going to wager on Max, bet on him to win by KO/TKO. Unfortunately, there will be heavy chalk on that wager, too, meaning we'll have to get very specific. Generally, I won't be betting on this fight, but I don't hate a few half-unit flyers on Holloway in Round 2 (TBD), Round 3 (TBD) or Round 4 (TBD).
How to bet The Korean Zombie
There's zero chance Zombie wins this fight. The 36-year-old has aggressive striking and a heart of gold, but he won't become the first fighter to KO Holloway. If you're keen on a longshot bet on TKZ, bet the Korean to win straight up for value in the +600 range.
Holloway vs The Korean Zombie Pick
I'll start with a bet on Holloway to win inside the distance (-140), with a smaller wager on him to win in Round 3 (+600). Check back closer to Saturday for a more accurate recommendation.
