Who to Bet on
You’ll have to do your own research before deciding who to bet on. Be sure to not fall into any of the betting biases.
If you want our suggestion, we recommend betting on Colby Covington at +110. His opponent, Rafael dos Anjos has shown a weakness to wrestling in the past (he was taken down nearly immediately by Jason High and Khabib Nurmagomedov).
Colby Covington will be the best wrestler he’s faced at welterweight. Covington was able to outwrestle a much larger and stronger judoka in Dong Hyun Kim for three rounds. Expect him to do the same against dos Anjos. There should be plenty of value betting on Colby Covington at +110 at 5Dimes.
