UFC Predictions & UFC Picks
Once a month or more there is a UFC fight held with a card that may feature over a dozen fights including the preliminaries. Each of those battles offers a chance for a variety of UFC picks to be graded wins or losses.
Each fighter will have odds depending on how likely he or she is to win the fight combined with the likelihood that the public is going to take those odds. In a perfect world (for sportsbooks) betting actually will be split as close to possible to each side of the octagon. This limits the damage in case of an upset and prevents a huge loss if a heavy chalk fighter gets a big win.
The way sportsbooks manage their leverage for UFC betting is by raising the odds on the favorite until he or she is nearly too high priced to take. Most bettors would be hammering Goliath -100, but half of them are going to switch sides when Goliath -450 odds are released because it’s too pricey; too much of a risk for the reward.
UFC Fight Night Predictions
In addition to out UFC picks and predictions for all of the main UFC events, which are typically headlined by a title fight, and pay-per-view, we also cover each of the UFC Fight Night events, which are held around two or three weekends a month.
Our UFC Fight Night Predictions are often some of our most fruitful UFC picks, with the cards often not as strong as the headline UFC events, filled with the stars of tomorrow, this is where our experts’ knowledge of the fighters pays dividends.
Everyone knows the likes of Conor McGregor, Jon Jones, and Khabib Nurmagomedov to name a few, and with the marquee fights, betting interest skyrockets. With this, the attention sportsbooks place on their markets do too, so the UFC Fight Night Predictions are often filled with hidden gems.
Following the UFC away from the spotlights, researching those lesser-known, upcoming fighters can often prove fruitful, and that’s exactly what we do here with our UFC Fight Night predictions.
Our experts leave no stone unturned ahead of locking in our UFC predictions, watching hours of film, past fights, breaking down the matchups, stats, and training camps to bring you the most informed UFC Fight Night predictions.

MMA Predictions and MMA Picks
The emergence of the UFC has done wonders for Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) with peak UFC fights drawing in audiences in their millions, from around the world.
The UFC is the pinnacle of MMA and our experts follow MMA institutions from around the world and already know a great deal about fighters that secure that big move into the UFC.
The UFC is such a large institution, hosting MMA fight cards almost weekly throughout the year, and with a large number of fights, our MMA predictions and MMA picks solely focus on these UFC events.
Our MMA Predictions will largely focus on the main markets of the fights with Moneyline MMA picks and Method of Victory markets which can offer considerably greater odds than a Moneyline wager.
We provide a detailed rundown of the fighters, and how we see the fights shaping up, taking the various MMA disciplines into consideration in finding the best MMA picks on the card.
Our MMA picks and MMA predictions will be posted a few days before fight night so you can digest our fight-by-fight analysis and best MMA picks this week.
When Are Your UFC Picks Posted
We aim to post our UFC picks as early as possible leading up to fight night to give you time to digest our previews and the key stats and information surround the fight.
When this is can vary fight-to-fight, but will usually be at least a few days before fight night arrives.
One of the great things about the UFC and a big part of its success is the media access leading up to the fights. During the fight week press conferences, we can find clues about the shape of a fighter, how the camp has gone, and many other UFC betting clues we can use when analyzing a fight.
With this, we absorb as much information as possible during fight week, ahead of making our and UFC picks, which can see them being posted a little later than others, but rest assured, our UFC picks and fight preview always be posted with plenty of time to spare ahead of fight night.
How To Bet On UFC Fights & UFC Picks
When it comes to betting on the UFC, the majority of bettors will look to place a wager on the outcome of a fight.
The most popular UFC wagers are on a certain fighter to win, known as a Moneyline bet, or a wager on a fighter to win, and also the method in which they win by, such as Knockout/Technical knockout, submission or decision is known as Method of Victory.
Method of Victory is a market that offers greater odds than a Moneyline UFC pick and is one in which you must research the fighters, and how the fight is likely to play out, before making your pick.
If you have two fighters that like to stand and trade, punch for punch, you would look at the fight possibly not going the distance and one fighter to win by KO. At the same time, if you have a fighter that excels on the ground, you may opt to take them to win by submission.
A Moneyline play is the safest option as your fighter just needs to win, but if in our research we find a spot we like in the Method of Victory markets, and one that offers good value odds, we also post these within our UFC picks.

What are the UFC odds for this week’s fights
Unlike other combat sports, such as boxing, the UFC prides itself on relative parity in its fights and while you’ll have the occasional short-odds favorite, the majority of UFC fights will have decent odds for both fighters. With this Moneyline odds come into play, again, unlike boxing, you’ll never see a -10000 favorite in the UFC.
A big part of having success with UFC picks is shopping the odds. Over time, shopping the odds will increase your profits a great deal, and also better shoulder those UFC picks that may not go your way.
With the UFC’s ever-increasing popularity, betting turnover has increased, making it a popular sport to offer amongst sportsbooks. Almost every online sportsbook will offer odds on the big UFC events and the majority will cover UFC Fight Nights including the early prelim fights.
Competition amongst sportsbooks favors the bettor as you can compare the odds and place your wager on UFC picks at the best possible odds.
Alongside all of our UFC picks for this week, you will find our in-depth preview and also the odds of our UFC pick, and where these odds are offered. This will be the best odds available at the time of posting, but the lines will fluctuate as we approach fight night so be sure to shop the odds.
