    UFC 234 Preview

    UFC 234 Odds - Main Card

    UFC 234 offers superb underdog opportunities across sports betting sites prior to the run-up to the event, with Gastelum, Alvey and Kassem providing the best value on the main card. A total of five fight will be on the main card, with seven prelim matches on the UFC schedule.

    Middleweight - Main Event: Robert Whittaker -240 vs. Kelvin Gastelum +190 

    Gastelum enters this matchup as the more outwardly confident fighter, promising a first-round knockout to scoop the middleweight belt from Robert Whittaker. Smart money has shaded towards Kevin, moving the line from +205 to +190 on behalf of the underdog.
    Kevin cedes a couple of inches on reach against Robert for striking purposes, but he’ll employ a bullish strategy to land damage from inside Whittaker’s comfort zone. A first-round KO is never a guarantee, but Kelvin offers good value as a top underdog for a straight up win.
    Pick: Gastelum +190

    Middleweight - Co-Main: Anderson Silva +425 vs. Israel Adesanya -650

    Will Anderson Silva regain the magic that sustained a legendary career prior to his horrific injury? There’s always a chance that the Spider will pull a random, genius finisher out of his back pocket, but Israel is 14 years younger, undefeated at 15-0-0 and owns a 2.5-inch reach advantage over Silva. This will be a tough bout for the UFC legend.
    Pick: Adesanya -650

    Light Heavyweight: Jim Crute -135 vs. Sam Alvey +105

    Alvey was TKO’ed for the first time in three years during his last outing in September, but the cagey striker will rebound with a strong performance over Jim Crute, who fights in front of a home crowd. In this case, since plenty of punters will place cash on Crute in Australia, the line for Alvey offers solid value because of his considerable experience in the octagon.
    Pick: Alvey +105

    Women's Flyweight: Montana De La Rosa -260 vs. Nadia Kassem +200

    Nadia Kassem will attempt to extend her undefeated streak to 5-0-0 against Montana De La Rosa, who’s listed as a solid favorite for this bout. Montana has greater experience, but Kassem will be fighting in front of a home crowd, which will provide a boost
    This will probably shake down into a classic striker versus grappler matchup, which tends to favor the submission artist as the fight wears on. Nadia has four first-round knockouts during her streak, making her a superb underdog at +200. Don’t expect another decision win for Kassem if she isn’t able to finish the bout quickly, especially with De La Rosa’s reach advantage.
    Pick: Kassem +200

    Bantamweight: Rani Yahya -105 vs. Ricky Simon -125

    The closest matchup of the night will feature Rani and Ricky battling to climb the MMA ladder. Yahya’s a master grappler, who will aggressively pursue the ground game. If Simon can maintain a solid defensive posture and wait patiently for Rani to overextend, Ricky will have an opportunity to do some grounding and pounding.
    Pick: Simon -125

    UFC 234 - Preliminary Card Odds

    The UFC schedule on February 9th will also feature a solid preliminary card, including multiple weight classes.

    • Devonte Smith -260 vs. Dong Hyun Ma +200
    • Teruto Ishihara +300 vs. Kyung Ho Kang -400
