The underdogs at UFC 203 have not seen much love from the public. The one man to do so is heavyweight Alistair Overeem, who will be challenging Stipe Miocic for the division’s gold in the main event of the evening scheduled for five rounds. Miocic opened as a -170 betting favorite in this title tilt, with the return on the underdog Overeem being +140. There has been back and forth action since, but the majority of it has been on “The Reem” and has driven betting lines to a current -115/+105, making this practically a coin-flip fight. Mickey Gall opened as a -380 betting favorite over ex WWE superstar CM Punk, with Punk being a +260 underdog. Early public action came in on Punk and tightened up the lines to -280/+230. However, heavy action on Gall has since brought the prices to the current -465/+370. King of the Cage veteran Jimmie Rivera is another betting favorite to receive some love at the sportsbooks, as he opened as a slight -130 betting favorite over the veteran Urijah Faber, who was a +110 underdog. The current betting lines for this contest are -160/+150. If Rivera comes through as the favorite, not only will his bettors cash their tickets, but he will become the first bantamweight to defeat Faber in a non-title fight. Nik Lentz was another heavy favorite to receive some public love, opening as a heavy -350 betting favorite over short notice promotional newcomer Michael McBride, with McBride being a +250 underdog. The public has since backed Lentz, bringing betting lines to their current -450/+400. The majority of bouts on this fight card have seen public action on both sides, including Andrade/Calderwood, Eye/Correia, Spencer/Medeiros and Gonzalez/Dober. It should be an interesting night of scraps in Cleveland.
