UFC 274 Betting Odds for Oliveira vs Gaethje

We’ve covered this fight in greater detail in our Oliveira vs Gaethje Betting Pick, but we’ll go over the basics of our prediction here. 
UPDATE: Oliveira misses weight. They will still fight but the title is vacated. Gaethje can win an interim title if he wins the bout. Oliveira is coming in huge for this one, cutting from nearly 180 pounds by some reports. Maybe he plans on grappling?

Oliveira is the taller fighter despite his UFC stats saying he’s 5’10’’. He’s going to have serious reach that will offer him victory inside any multi strike exchanges that Gaethje initiates. Expect Oliveira to get dropped, because he often butt flops when he’s hit as a method of countering with submissions or avoiding follow up damage. 

Gaethje and Whittman

Gaethje’s trainer Trevor Whittman is a long time boxing coach. He’s offered Gaethje a clear focus on combination striking that has led to many of his greatest wins. However, Gaethje’s defensive striking for MMA hasn’t improved much since his UFC debut, and I think it’s because of the boxing-like head movement that Whittman prefers in his athletes. It doesn’t translate well to MMA.

One of the strongest bets of the fight is the Goes to Decision, No prop bet at -500, a $20 return per $100 wagered. Gaethje’s last fight was his first UFC decision win or lose. As Gaethje climbs the ranks, more fighters will approach his forward moving style with attempts at a decision win, which Ferguson almost clenched before the fifth round knockout by Gaethje. 

MMA Analysis and Betting Pick

Oliveira is the superior grappler despite his BJJ Blue belt. His submission over Poirier should give fans faith that subbing Gaethje should be possible without superior wrestling. Gaethje’s style depends on getting hit and countering big. That’s not a strategy that will last long at the championship level. 

Let’s Go 🔥 Can’t wait 👊🏻

Expect Oliveira to come back in the third and fourth rounds, but give up the first two. There could be a late fight finish, but my money is on an Oliveira decision. The money line pays $58.82 per $100 wagered.

UFC 274 Betting Odds for Esparza vs Namajunas

The Co-Main event is a title fight and Rose’s second ever first attempt at a title defense. Carla has been the underdog in her last three wins, upsetting Kelly, Xianon and Rodriguez from +117 to +240. Rose has gone 6-2 over her last eight, upsetting Weilli in the rematch (closing odds) and losing as the underdog to Andrade in their first bout. She’s a stronger favorite in this fight than in 80% of her UFC appearances since breaking the top ten.

Esparza has fewer finishes but more UFC bouts overall. She finished Rose with a submission for the first ever UFC flyweight title in 2014 and remains one of Rose’s only unavenged losses. Esparza struggles in the reach and height department. 

Whitman vs Oyama

These fighters have two high quality training programs at their disposal. Rose trains with Whittman, who’s elevated her boxing dramatically, and 303 where she focuses on her offensive grappling. Rose’s takedown defense is still in question at 50%. 

She gave up five takedowns to Weili in fight two, and several to Andrade over two fights.

 
Team Oyama focuses on high level submission grappling, producing finishers like Marlon Vera and Anderson dos Santos. Expect Esparza to have a grappling advantage and Rose to have a boxing advantage

Rose is the favorite, despite losing to Esparza in their first showing. She’s defeated more top five women in the last eight years. Esparza’s loss to Markos in 2016 disrupted her title run, as did falling into the path of the still undefeated Tatiana Suarez. The UFC 274 betting odds support a decision for Rose after a five round contest. 

UFC Prop Betting Predictions

I see the Esparza finish prop as especially interesting. She’s coming off a TKO win and seems to have finally found her striking rhythm. She scores an average of 3.5 takedowns per fifteen minutes, just over one per round. Rose lets takedowns happen, and I think a submission victory is possible. 

Over Under for Rose vs Esparza

Esparza has seen decisions in all but three of her UFC appearances. Her first and her most recent are her only two finish wins of her UFC career. Rose has seen a decision in half of her last ten fights, five total for her UFC run. Only Rose has a late round finish, a Round 5 submission over Paige VanZant in 2015. The stats say yes to the Over prop, but I’m not particularly convinced. 

UFC 274 Prediction for Namajunas vs Esparza

Rose has power and range on Esparza. We’ll need to see Esparza look diligent early, looking for the takedown aggressively out of the gate. I think she’ll be able to win takedowns at will, but getting inside kicking range needs to be intentional and early. 

Rose Namajunas fight week!#UFC274 pic.twitter.com/gUE4yEvSPf

— ᴜʟᴛʀᴀᴠɪᴏʟᴇɴᴄᴇ ☔ (@ultraimmunity) May 2, 2022

Esparza’s grappling is second to none in the strawweight division. She’s going to pressure Rose for the takedown and I think she can get it. Rose has fallen to Andrade slams and Esparza’s submission game. The other fighters she’s faced to get to the top were not the best grapplers in the game. I expect Esparza to win takedowns the way Weili did, but to do more with them. 

For that reason, we’re predicting the upset win. 

Our pick is Carla Esparza at +172, a $172 return per $100 wagered.

UFC 274 Betting Odds for Ferguson vs Chandler

El Cucuy is back after a year off to face Chandler. Ferguson lost his last three with betting odds ranging from -230 to +130. He’s struggled to get back to his massive fourteen fight winning streak. Chandler lost his last two at +120 and +180, winning from +145 to -1000 over the course of his career in Bellator and the UFC.

Ferguson has a fantastic UFC finishing ratio. Though Chandler doesn’t wrestle in the majority of his fights, a hard shot can make him shoot, opening him up to be Ferguson’s seventh submission victim. The UFC 274 odds show that a fight finish is in order, regardless of who wins, with a -200 no decision prop. 

UFC Stats for Ferguson vs Chandler

As wilh Oliviera, Chandler has a big reach disadvantage. He’ll need to move forward quickly, mimicking the Hooker fight, to land his average 5 strikes per minute. Tony gets caught often, 3.7 times per minute on average, but makes up for it with spinning counter elbows and unorthodox attacks. He struggled to land strikes of any kind in his last two fights, but Chandler is closer to Gaethje or RDA in style, fighters who saw Tony land +110 strikes per bout. 

Sanford MMA vs Tony’s Team

Tony has a weird, piecemeal team for fighting. He has never been big on sparring or orhtodox training methods that inhibit his full expression. Sanford MMA will develop a winning style for Chandler, hopefully mimicking aspects of the Beniel win, avoiding submissions and racking up control time. Doubtful, considering Michael is bent on being exciting over winning fights.

It’s surprising to me to see the no decision prop as a weak favorite. It pays double the Chandler money line. Ferguson isn’t out of this fight. He took a much needed year off and still is as dangerous as ever. Losing to fighters inside the top five doesn’t mean you’re no longer capable of a 50% finishing rate inside the UFC. 

MMA Analysis and UFC 274 Prediction for Ferguson vs Chandler

Ferguson is still as dangerous as ever. He’s been finished only once in his last three, but Chandler doesn’t have the self preservation of Dariush or Oliveira. He definitely wants to win big against anyone he faces. He’s never been submitted, but at 38 you have to think he’ll be easier to finish at some point.

— diablo (@NickDiabloDiaz) November 26, 2021

Chandler is an equal danger. I think he still has a chip on his shoulder about being a Bellator fighter. He wants to destroy Ferguson to prove something, not just because of his strategy. For that, I believe the ‘No decision’ prop at -200 is the right bet. It pays $50 per $100 wagered and aligns with 80% of Chandler’s UFC appearances. Two kill or be killed fighters are going into the cage. This is going to be the fight of the night.

UFC 274 Betting Odds for Rua vs OSP

Rua hasn’t fought since a second loss to Paul Craig in 2020. He also lost to OSP in 2014, and is looking for revenge. Rua was a +175 in his last loss, and a -200 to +475 over his last six. He upset Tyson Pedro as a +475 in 2018. 
OSP has lost five of his last seven fights. He’s been the underdog for four fights in a row, ranging from +125 to +300, upsetting Menifield at +140 and Oleksiejczuk at +250.

Rua is old. He’s been fighting at the top levels of MMA since 2002. OSP was active in Strikeforce in 2010, and is close to Rua in age and accolade. OSP carries most of the natural advantages, and they lead him to the first win over Rua, a first round TKO via a jab in 2014. 

Knoxville MMA vs Kings MMA

OSP has the inferior school on this one. Rua’s move to Kings to reignite his career is a genius move. It’s tough to get out of your comfort zone, and despite his performances I think Rua could be in this fight. His coaches must think he can win over OSP given his current training protocol. Knoxville MMA is home to a few quality fighters but no one as notable as OSP.

Unless OSP’s power has faded entirely, we could see another knockout. Flash knockout rematches tend to go to decision, with both fighters playing more tentative or confident games (see Rose vs Weili 2.) Rua has only two TKO wins in seven years. 

UFC Prop Betting Predictions

I see the Over looking like  a good bet. Rua’s last three fights have been decisions, win or lose. OSP has been knocked out twice, but he’s gone to decision with a number of finishes in the late second round. Even if he can put Rua away again, he’ll do so eight years older and less athletic. 

UFC 274 Betting Pick for OSP vs Rua

Given the UFC 274 betting odds are deeply in favor of OSP, I’ll agree that he’s more likely to win the fight. However, OSP hasn’t won a fight via decision since 2016, fifteen fights ago. Rua is still dangerous and his time at KIngs could offer a fresh outlook on fighting that turns him back into Pride fighting, kicking everyone in the head, Rua. 
Our betting pick is the fight goes to decision, no at -230. The UFC is getting better at packing exciting fights, and the UFC 274 main card is one focused on fight finishers and collisions that will bring an early night.

UFC 274 Betting Odds for Lauzon vs Cerrone 

For the opening fight of the main card we see two UFC legends. The return of Lauzon, who hasn’t fought since 2019. Lauzon went out on an upset win over Jonathan Pearce by KO at +170. He lost to Gruetzemacher as a -145 favorite before that. 
Cerrone has been on a five fight losing streak to the lightweight best. He’s convinced he’ll get back on track, with odds ranging from +110 to +155 in losses. This is his first time as favorite since fighting Jim Miller in 2016.

The fighters are closely matched on paper. Lauzon went 5-5 over his last ten fights, Donald has gone 4-6 not counting a no contest loss because Price can’t stop taking PED’s. 

BMF Rance vs Lauzon MMA

Donald works directly with Muay Thai legend Joe Schilling, one of the best strikers to ever live. The BMF Ranch is at his home, and is centered around giving him an optimal fight camp. Lauzon owns his own BJJ and MMA school, where he coaches as a job. This is not the best environment for combat sports, but Lauzon brings in sparring partners and has done his due diligence to make the camp work for him.

The oddsmakers agree, someone is getting finished. Donald is likely to put Joe down or get put down. There is little room for a decision in this fight, though I wonder if that’s where Lauzon’s mind is going. Both men have a high rate of finishing and finished 80% of their last five wins.

UFC 274 MMA Analysis for Cerrone vs Lauzon

Donald’s strikes absorbed has risen to 4.4 per minute on average, up from 3.4 six fights ago. Going head to head with some of the sports best has made people forget that he’s a quality striker that the majority of strikers can’t handle. 
Lauzon is a submission fighter at heart with knockout power. He was finished quickly by fighters like Clay Guida and Anthony Pettis. I don’t think Lauzon made it to the same levels of competition as Cerrone toward the end of his career, and unless Cerrone looks for the takedown, Lauzon’s BJJ game will be widely negated. 
Expect a Cerrone win at -175, a $57 per $100 wagered payout. Onto the UFC 274 preliminary Card!

UFC 274 Betting Odds for VanCamp vs Fialho

Cameron has fought stiff competition outside of the UFC, losing to Bobby Voelker and Tom Shoaff early in his career. He’s won his last four with three finishes.

VanCamp is a huge underdog. Fialho survived against Pereira and that gives him plenty of credit. However, few fighters have a combined pedigree of wrestling and BJJ like VanCamp’s. He’s out of IBG, the school that brought us the UFC’s Andrew Holbrook and Garett Whiteley. Expect the grinding clinch work that frustrated Fialho in his first appearance. 

UFC 274 Prelims MMA Analysis for VanCamp vs Fialho

The betting odds for UFC 274 are ripe for an upset. VanCamp is a high level grappler, and Fialho has faltered multiple times in the past against this type of fighter. VanCamp’s unknown status serves him well in this one. 
Our upset of the night is VanCamp at +325.

UFC 274 Betting Odds for Brown vs Williams

UFC 274 Betting Odds for Chiasson vs Dumont

UFC 274 Prelims MMA Analysis for Chiasson vs Dumont

Chiasson has three finishes in the second round. She’s a fighter that tends to warm up as time goes on. However, both of her UFC losses to date were to fighters that could out wrestle her. Dumont will look similar to Lansberg and Pennington, stopping Chiasson’s takedowns and forcing her into control positions.

UFC 274 Betting Odds for Royval vs Schnell

UFC 274 Betting Odds for Rogerio de Lima vs Ivanov

The UFC 274 Odds are convinced that if Ivanov can get the takedown, he will win the bout. It’s not a bad plan, but Lima hits hard in a way that can be frustrating to fighters. Still, with Lima’s weaknesses so open to the world, it’s hard not to think Ivanov will simply get the takedown and choke him with ease. Lima has lost 5 of his 11 UFC appearances by submission, chokes specifically. 
Our pick is the Ivanov money line at -150. 

UFC 274 Betting Odds for Vergara vs Rodrigues
