LAS VEGAS – Amanda Nunes is often such a big favorite that the only viable way to bet on her is through prop bets. The same can be said for UFC 269.
Nunes To Win In Round 1 (+150)
Considered the be the greatest female mixed martial artist of all time, Nunes has shown she’s capable of ending fights in the opening round. In fact, she’s done it so often that online gambling sites may be leaving too much value on her to do so again.
Round Betting Odds - Amanda Nunes
- Amanda Nunes in Round 1 +150
- Amanda Nunes in Round 2 +350
- Amanda Nunes in Round 3 +650
- Amanda Nunes in Round 4 +1100
- Amanda Nunes in Round 5 +2000
Nunes has finished her opponent in the first round in three of her last five fights and in 14 of her 21 professional wins overall. Nunes is currently listed as the biggest favorite she’s ever been, showing just how lopsided the matchup may be.
The +150 odds to do something she’s been doing more often than not against what’s allegedly the easiest fight of her career seems too generous.
Fight To Start Round 5 (+250)
If the fight doesn’t end in the first round, there’s a good chance it reaches the final one. Nunes has either seen her fights end in the first round or final round in each of her last 17 fights dating back to 2011. This means that every single one of her last seven fights that made it past the first round ended up reaching the final scheduled round of the fight.
Fight To Start Round 5 Odds
- Yes +250
- No -325
This bet may be best used in pair with the first-mentioned prop bet as it covers the results for every one of Nunes fights over the last decade.
Nunes To Win By Decision (+400)
Since Nunes often reaches the final round, a win by way of decision isn’t too bad of a play either. She has just four wins by decision in her career, but she’s gone to the scorecards in two of her last three fights, leaving some decent value on her odds to do so again on Saturday.
Method of Victory Odds
- Nunes By KO/DQ -155
- Nunes By Submission +375
- Nunes By Decision +400
This can be used instead of the fight to reach the fifth-round prop as the two are fairly similar, but this prop does offer much more value for the fight to continue for those final five minutes.
Pena and Nunes make up the co-main event on UFC 269 which has a main card that’s supposed to start at 10 p.m. EST and can be bought through PPV on the ESPN+ app.
