How to Bet on UFC 274
Betting on UFC 274 is available as soon as fight odds are released by the sportsbooks, sometimes just days after a fight is confirmed (a few months before the event, in some instances). By the week of the fight, expect there to be plenty of action on the UFC lines.
If you’re betting on the UFC, do so early, especially when it comes to certain fighters. By the time of the fight, some fighters may be offered at unaffordable levels. “The early bird catches the worm,” as they say.Follow us on Twitter
