This is the biggest middleweight championship fight in nearly a decade as the king, Israel Adesanya takes on fellow undefeated striker Paulo Costa. There is no shortage of bad blood between the two and combined with the small cage, the stakes couldn’t be any higher. Co-headlining are Dominick Reyes and Jan Blachowicz fighting for the vacant light heavyweight belt. Let’s break down the UFC 253 odds.
FIFA 2014 World Cup Championship Argentina vs Germany Odds Update
Argentina: South American World Cup dream is alive
Thanks in large part to their defense, a much maligned unit before the tournament began, Argentina has deftly navigated their way to the World Cup Final. While the defense was brilliant in holding Holland to zero shots on goal, until Arjen Robben fired one from outside the box in the 99th minute, the Man of the Match certainly was Sergio Romero. The Argentinean goalkeeper made not one – but two saves versus Dutch strikers during the penalty kick stage of the semifinal match. The White and Sky Blue have not given up a goal in three straight matches now (three in six games) and will need to keep up their stingy play versus the powerful Germans.
Germany: Surging into the Championship match after bashing Brazil
After netting four goals in a span of six minutes, which is a new World Cup semifinal record, the rout was on as Germany deflated and then stomped on the hearts of an entire nation with their relentless 7-1 pummeling of host Brazil. The speed of the goals is just one of the many records established by die Mannschaft during their stunning semifinal triumph. The Germans now have more goals (223) than any other Nation in World Cup history and he final result was the most lopsided loss by a host country. Adding more insult to the injury, the eventual game winner came from Miroslav Klose making him the top striker in World Cup play as he passed legendary Brazilian star Renaldo with his 16th marker – that’s kind of ironic isn’t it? Germany gets an extra day of rest and can build on their records if they come out firing in a similar fashion versus Argentina.
Argentina vs Germany 2014 FIFA World Cup Championship Final Call
An extra day of rest is good tonic for a largely healthy German side while the Argentina squad will need some fast healing from several key players. On the other side of the coin, no European entry has won a World Cup played in the Americas. Scrolling to the bottom of the betting board at the SportsInteraction online sportsbook, we find the “Lift the Cup” betting option – which gives decent value to the Europeans. We don’t see a blowout in this title match and we’ll wager 300 units on Germany taking home their fourth World Cup Championship.

The betting odds don’t get any better than this for the main event in UFC 252. Two-time champion Stipe Miocic, who is 1-1 against former champion Daniel Cormier and defends his heavyweight belt against him in their trilogy match on Aug. 15, offers the exact same odds (-110) as his rival in a mixed martial arts event which will be held at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
