From top to bottom, the only fighter on this UFC 195 fight card to receive a heavy amount of one-way action appears to me Michael “Mayday” McDonald (-405 to -570), who is making his return to the Octagon after a two-year absence. Surely, many bettors have included him in most, if not all of their parlays, being under the impression that he is a sure thing, regardless of the odds. Kyle Noke (-270 to -305) has seen some public love, too, but it isn’t nearly the same. There seems to be a good amount of two-sided action on this card. Despite Stipe Miocic (-200 to -220) being one of the biggest betting favorites of the night in the co-main event of the evening, his line has more or less stayed the same. His opponent Andrei Arlovski (+185 to +200) has been getting public love, as per usual, and I think that has kept the balance even. In the evening’s main event, Champion Robbie Lawler will look to defend his welterweight title against challenger and former interim-champion Carlos Condit. The betting public, along with fight fans everywhere are very much split on this one and the betting lines have reflected it. They both sit at the current coin-flip price of-110. There was one instance of tables turning and lines shifting, as Abel Trujillo (-135 to +125) opened up as the favorite to win over his opponent Tony Sims (-105 to -135) but now is the underdog himself. Despite the fact, there still seems to be a decent amount of support for Trujillo, keeping the betting lines fairly tight.
