These are your best bets for the bonus:
Van Zant/Rose-Clark (+450) || 1u to win 4.5u
Paige Van Zant and Jessica Rose-Clark will be going to war in the co-main event of the evening in St. Louis, and I expect it to be just that; a war. Rose-Clark is looking to make it two straight wins for herself inside the Octagon following a split decision call over fellow Australian Bec Rawlings, and Van Zant will be looking to bounce back into the win column following a first round submission loss to Michelle Waterson and over a year long layoff. I expect this to be a high action scrap, so knowing Dana White generally favors women’s fights when it comes bonus time, I do see value in this +450 betting line. Should these girls take home the bonus, it would be the second time for Van Zant and the first for Rose-Clark.
Krause/White (+700) 1u to win 7u
It’s Missouri versus Missouri when James Krause takes on Alex White. Both fighters will have a lot of support behind them, so you can expect this to be a fight that the crowd is completely behind. As far as they both put it all on the line in an effort to get their hands raised, this should be an exciting scrap that draws high cheers from the St. Louis crowd. At +700, I think this is the best value to be had for the ‘Fight of the Night’ prop. Should these 155 pounders earn the honors, it would be the second time for Krause, while being the first for White.
