Best bets for UFC Fight Night: Whittaker vs. Gastelum

By Lou Finocchiaro  ( 


UFC Vegas 24 returns to an afternoon broadcast schedule Saturday. The prelims kick off at 4 p.m. PT, with the main card available on ESPN starting at 7 p.m. PT. As the dog days of summer near, it’s nice to know that the UFC is presenting three to four slates a month, making profit possible for the whole year. That’s something few other bettable sports boast.

Last week Mackenzie Dern did everything we thought she’d do. It was unusual for her to be in such a favorable pricing position, as bookmakers opened Nina Ansaroff as the pick against Dern. That seemed incorrect and proved to be exactly that. Crazier to me was the market reaction to the opening line — betting Ansaroff early, often and forcefully.

We won’t see such mispriced bouts too often, so it’s important to attack them when they do arise.

Insight the Octagon’s 2021 profitability: 9-5, + 5.15 units.
