Bet on UFC Fight Night 90: dos Anjos vs. Alvarez Odds

June 21st, 2016 UFC

Bet on UFC Fight Night 90Fans who are planning to bet on UFC Fight Night 90 are favoring current UFC Lightweight Champion Rafael dos Anjos to defeat former Bellator Lightweight Champion Eddie ‘The Silent Assassin’ Alvarez on July, Thursday 7th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Here are the UFC betting odds for the fight:

Eddie Alvarez 3½ (+120) +345
Rafael Dos Anjos 3½ (-140) -430
This is not all that surprising, if one thinks about it. After all, dos Anjos is a UFC veteran who made his debut on UFC 91 in 2008, while whatever cred Alvarez may have had prior to 2012 went down the drain when he appeared on MTV’s Bully Beatdown not once, but twice. But people who bet on UFC know that odds are based on cold, hard facts, such as the ones displayed below.

People who bet on UFC should know this will be only Alvarez’s third fight with the company. He lost his first to Donald Cerrone by unanimous decision at UFC 178 in September 2014. Then he went on to win his two following bouts; two split decisions versus Gilbert Melendez and Anthony Pettis on UFC 188 and UFC Fight Night 81, respectively. Dos Anjos has won his last five matches in a row, including the aforementioned Cerrone and Pettis as well as Nate Diaz. Another reason that UFC betting odds favor dos Anjos might be the fact that he has titanium-fused jaw which he claims has broken the hands of some opponents.
