Five Props is a column featured on MMAOddsbreaker.com after every major MMA event that highlights the biggest underdog prop bets to cash out from that card. Here are five UFC 220 prop bets that cashed big based on the closing odds at Several Bookmakers.
1) Jacare Souza by Knockout (+523) In one of the more surprising prop lines in quite some time, Jacare Souza repeated what he did the first time he faced Derek Brunson; a first round knockout victory. For those bettors who thought Jacare would be able to repeat his performance, they were paid out a handsome +523.
2) Niko Price by Submission (+382) After a difficult start, Nike Price began to take advantage of a tired George Sullivan. Once he took his back in the second round it was only a matter of when he would be able to sync in a submission. Price by submission was the second highest paying prop to cash for the card at +382.
3) Andre Fili by Decision (+350) Despite being out struck by nearly a two to one margin, Andre Fili did enough in the grappling aspects of this bout to be awarded a split over Dennis Bermudez. It was expected to be a close decision at the final bell and the judges gave it to Fili to award Fil by Decision backers with a +350 winner.
4) Ji Yeon Kim by Decision (+345) In yet another close fight, Ji Yeon Kim earned her first UFC win by inflicting more damage than Justine Kish did. The judges rewarded head shots over leg kicks and body work to give her the nod. Kim by decision closed at +345.
5) Cory Sandhagen by Knockout (+300) One of the more impressive UFC debuts in recent times as Cory Sandhagen dominated the striking landing body shots throughout the bout and eventually putting Austin Arnett away. Those confident Sandhagen wouldn’t have UFC jitters and be able to finish his opponent received a +300 win.
A $100 parlay on these five props would have netted $240,429.
