MMA odds action sees two UFC Fight Night events this weekend, one from Australia and the other from Brazil. 5Dimes has tons of action on both UFC Fight Night 55 and 56, including the UFC Fight Night 56 main event between Mauricio Rua and Ovince St. Preux.
St. Preux will enter the Octagon as a last-minute replacement for the injured Jimi Manuwa but was training to face Rafael Cavalcate before getting the call. Despite a late matchup 5Dimes has the fight handicapped closely. Rua is a slight -190 favorite with action on St. Preux coming with a +165 payday.
With the prop option for fight doesn’t go to a decision handicapped at -260, one would likely be better off chasing the +120 payday for Rua inside the distance or the +230 for St. Preux inside the distance, depending on who you like.
The co-main event of the UFC Fight Night 56 card features Flyweight contenders Ian McCall and John Lineker. 5Dimes moneyline action favors McCall at -185 and currently offers +160 on Lineker, but the real UFC betting meat in this three-round fight has to be in the props.
Fight goes to a decision at -170 or the Over 2.5 rounds at -185 make the most sense. If you have a favorite, the McCall by decision at +125 or the Lineker by decision at +350 look to be offering more value in a fight that is likely to go the distance.
Welterweight action on the UFC Fight Night 56 fight card will feature two talented young fighters looking to make a name for themselves. Undefeated Warlley Alves is currently the UFC odds -260 favorite while his opponent Alan Jouban is handicapped as the +220 underdog.
These two hungry fighters will be looking to make a statement, so the Under 2.5 rounds at -125 looks like a bargain. Add on the -160 fight doesn’t go to decision and the +125 for Alves inside the distance for a nice parlay payday if the Brazilian is able to remain undefeated.
