November Could Get Bloody In Terms of MMA Betting
There will be two kinds of violence this November: the fighting in the ring/cage and all the bets that will get destroyed. Don’t be the sucker who sees their chalk-heavy parlay crushed or their fantasy lineup obliterated. We’ve got one key advice for each major MMA event this month. These are our best blood money MMA bets this coming month.
Date/Time: November 11, 6:00 p.m. ET
Location: Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
Stream: Pay-per-view, ESPN
No Jon Jones? No problem. UFC 295 became better matchup-wise as Tom Aspinall and Sergei Pavlovich are primal heavyweights. Both are finishers – Aspinall with 100% finishing rate and Pavlovich with 83%. But with Aspinall as the slight favorite, it’s best to lean on the underdog here. That is the best stance to take on the MMA odds for this event.
The new main event, Jiri Prochazka versus Alex Pereira for the vacant light heavyweight title, will also be an explosive one. While Pereira should win per his betting line, Prochazka is very much a live dog and is undefeated as one (4-0).
🥊 Stacked Bellator 301 Could Get Chaotic, Betting-Wise 🥊
Date/Time: November 17, 5:00 p.m. ET
Location: Wintrust Arena, Chicago, IL
Stream: Showtime, YouTube
The follow-up to Bellator 300 could be one of the best Bellator events, on paper. We have a slew of competitive bouts from the co-main event to the tournament fights. Thus, expect the odds to be tight for many matchups here. Sergio Pettis versus Patchy Mix for the bantamweight belt could lean towards the challenger though it won’t be by much.
Former lightweight champion Patricky “Pitbull” Freire will be a wily underdog against up-and-coming Alexander Shabliy. And the Raufeon Stots and Danny Sabatello rematch will once again be competitive. The main event, however, could have wide odds in favor of welterweight champion Yaroslav Amosov against Jason Jackson.
🥊 RIZIN in Azerbaijan: Don’t Chalk It Up 🥊
Date/Time: November 4, 12:00 p.m. ET
Location: National Gymnastics Arena, Baku, Azerbaijan
Stream: FITE TV
Ready to get some blood money MMA bets? We’re cautioning you to stay away from nonchalantly parlaying chalk for this event. There are several wide favorites here such as Vugar Karamov and Tofiq Musayev in the main events. They are but two local favorites taking on outsiders, mainly Japanese or Asian. Don’t bet blindly.
Date/Time: November 4, 6:00 p.m. ET
Location: Ibirapuera Gymnasium, Sao Paulo, Brazil
The UFC’s return to Sao Paulo promises to satiate the bloodthirsty Brazilian fans. So the best blood money MMA bets here are to what the “blood” alludes to: finishes. The main event’s “fight does not go to decision” line is already as juiced as pre-USADA Vitor Belfort. Jailton Almeida, the local mutant, is heavily favored as is several of his compatriots.
Date/Time: November 18, 6:00 p.m. ET
Location: UFC Apex, Las Vegas, NV
Keep track of the MMA news for the betting lines here. Brendan Allen and Paul Craig main event an underrated UFC Fight Night. Both are submission experts so this fight is likely heavily favored to not finish. The rest of the card is filled with low-key exciting UFC fighters. So the books may line the bouts too conservatively. Bet early to take advantage.
🥊 PFL 10: Could Big Upsets Take Place Yet Again? 🥊
Date/Time: November 24, 5:30 p.m. ET
Location: The Anthem, Washington, D.C.
If you’re hunting for upsets, the Professional Fighters League (PFL) tends to produce plenty of them. With several fights here expected to be lopsided on the betting odds, one or two could lead to a lucrative upset. Will Marina Mokhnatkina shock Larissa Pacheco as she did to Kayla Harrison last year?
