Here are my initial thoughts on the UFC 250 Opening Odds:

  • No one should be surprised by the opening odds for the main event. Nunes has been virtually unstoppable since 2014 as she’s riding an 10-fight win streak at the moment, and it’s nearly impossible to bet against her. Spencer is a legitimate featherweight and showed against Cris Cyborg at UFC 241 that she’s as tough as they come, but it’s hard to see anyone getting by the champ right now. The oddsmakers are showing little respect for Spencer here, but the public is going to be all over Nunes in parlays. It’s hard to see a path for victory for the dog.
  • The co-main event is an intriguing bantamweight bout between the former champion Garbrandt and perennial contender Assuncao. Garbrandt hasn’t fought in over a year and has lost his last three fights by knockout, but we all know how talented he is. On the other hand, Assuncao is still his typically steady self although he is getting up there in age these days. The biggest problem for Garbrandt has been his chin but in this matchup Assuncao doesn’t possess the threat of a KO. Even though Garbrandt hasn’t fought in a while, you still have to favor him here considering his youth and his skill. Let’s just hope his chin holds up in this one.
  • The most important fight on the card is arguably the bantamweight bout between Sterling and Sandhagen. The winner of this fight could very well fight for the vacant belt in their next outing. Sterling has won his last four fights while Sandhagen is a perfect 5-0 in the UFC. They are two of the best in the world at 135lbs, and the only thing that would make this fight better is if it was five rounds. Based on the odds, you have to lean towards the dog in Sandhagen. This is a really close fight but considering Sandhagen’s momentum there’s value on him at plus-money.
  • Also on the main card, we see the return of O’Malley against Wineland. The oddsmakers see this as a huge mismatch, and it’s easy to see why considering O’Malley is 10 years younger and the fresher fighter at this point in their careers. Then again, Wineland has a ton of experience and is incredibly tough to finish. If O’Malley can go out there and finish Wineland, it will prove he’s an elite fighter in the stacked bantamweight division. But considering Wineland’s experience, the odds seem a bit more lopsided than they really should.
