UFC 261: Best bets for Smith-Crute

By Reed Kuhn  ( 


UFC 261 is slated for a rare triple-title night, and that usually offers matchups with different odds profiles. In this case, we have two established champions as steep favorites and only one title matchup with more playable odds. 

We’ll get to all three title fights, but first let’s hunt for better value further down the card. Consider Saturday’s main card opener between light-heavyweights Anthony Smith and Jimmy Crute. Smith has spent the last few years at the top of the division facing elite talent, while Crute is a newcomer, now on a winning streak that could catapult him up the ranks with a win over a former contender like Smith.
