Rozenstruik vs Gaziev Betting Predictions

There's not much tape on Gaziev, so can Rozenstruik surprise him with something? Let's see.

How To Bet Rozenstruik vs Gaziev

Prop odds are trickling out, and this bout is -190 to finish in UNDER 1.5 rounds. For perspective, four of Rozenstruik's last five fights have gone UNDER 1.5 rounds. Gaziev stopped his UFC debut in Round 2.

We can presume Gaziev, the Dagestani, is a strong wrestler, but his striking stood out at UFC 296. Gaziev floored his opponent with tight jabs and a stalking forward approach.

Rozenstruik is simple and vicious. He can get lulled into slow moments, but he's freakishly strong and athletic, capable of knocking folks out with a lunging hook or flying knee.

If both guys fight at their highest energies, we've got an early night in the works.

Rozenstruik vs Gaziev Picks

I'm on the UNDER 1.5, plus Gaziev to win. I really want to take Rozenstruik, but he's far too inconsistent, and Gaziev has more pathways to a win.

Pick: Gaziev (-150); UNDER 1.5 Rounds (-190)
