On Valentine’s Day MMA betting fans will have yet another free televised card on which to wager. UFC Fight Night 60 will be headlined by former UFC Lightweight champion Benson Henderson taking a step up in weight class to face a tough young Welterweight in Brandon Thatch.
Henderson is coming off a disappointing disputed loss to Donald Cerrone and is looking to get back into the win column. He takes this fight on short notice and is currently handicapped at 5Dimes as the +105 underdog. Thatch has been a wrecking machine over his last 10 fights finishing every opponent in the first round.
With lots of props available at 5Dimes this fight looks to have two potential outcomes that dominate; take either the +240 option on Henderson winning via decision or the +115 option that Thatch wins inside the distance. One could even hedge those bets against each other, but the Thatch payout wouldn’t offer much in the way of profit if you did.
The co-main event of UFC Fight Night 60 will feature Featherweights Cole Miller and Max Holloway in what is currently a lopsided UFC odds option. Moneyline action at 5Dimes has Holloway as the -350 favorite while Miller will pay +290.
UFC Fight Night 60 prop odds have a -125 line on the fight going to a decision or a -145 price on the fight going OVER 2.5 rounds. We expect Miller to maintain enough distance to lose a decision to Holloway in this one.
Neil Magny is currently handicapped as a heavy UFC odds -465 favorite at 5Dimes to beat Kiichi Kunimoto. He has put together a string of five straight UFC wins and is expected to be too much for his Japanese opponent.
Kunimoto has seven straight wins of his own but has not looked overly impressive since coming to the UFC. We expect Magny to win via decision (+166) mainly because Kunimoto has shown to be durable even in defeat.
