Sports Bettors Are Loving New Odds For McGregor vs Cerrone Fight

Posted on January 15, 2020

Last we saw Conor McGregor in the Octagon, it was October of 2018 at UFC 229. At the time, he was at the pinnacle of the UFC as one of their top superstars. But remember, that match came after a long hiatus too as he stepped away from the UFC to engage in a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

That means that Saturday’s affair with Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone is just his MMA fight since November of 2016. Even so, McGregor is still just 31 years old and the oddsmakers are expecting him to take care of business at UFC 246.

McGregor Odds: Favorite Over Cerrone

McGregor is currently priced at -315 at DraftKings Sportsbook and 300 at FanDuel Sportsbook, so he’s a sizable favorite in this spot. .

Cerrone will enter Saturday’s fight as having lost two in a row and six of his last 10. That’s a really rough stretch when it comes to MMA. He’s been beaten up anytime he’s faced elite fighters, getting knocked out by Masvidal, Darren Till, Tony Ferguson and Justin Gaethje. The fact that he’s been knocked out in two straight fights is concerning.

Cerrone is also 36 years old and looks like he’s in the twilight of his career. We’re a long way away from 2015 when he was tabbed as ESPN’s Fighter of the Year.

If you’re expecting this to be a short fight or expecting a McGregor knockout, keep in mind that both DraftKings and FanDuel offer some other methods for you to bet on this bout.

For example, the total rounds for this fight are set at 1.5 with under at -110 at DraftKings.

If you think McGregor ends this quickly, betting under might make sense.

If you want to bet the exact method of victory, McGregor is paying -200 at both FanDuel and DraftKings if you bet him to win by knockout, which includes technical knockout.
