There’s an interest for followers of MMA this weekend when the UFC stages its latest show. Robert Whittaker v Israel Adesanya tops a star-studded show but there’s plenty more available on the undercard to allow backers a shot at landing a nice priced multiple. Live UFC is exciting but not half s much as making a profit from your viewing. Here are our top Robert Whittaker v Israel Adesanya betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
UFC 243 takes place in Melbourne, Australia and will be shown live in the UK on BT Sports. That’s great news for armchair fans as this bill is pay per view in many countries around the world. This will be the fourth time UFC has come to Melbourne, but this will be special as the main event is billed as a unification bout.
Robert Whittaker is current UFC middleweight champion and goes against Israel Adesanya who has been filling in as interim champion in recent times. Who will come out on top? It’s anyone’s guess at this stage but we know it’ll be great fun finding out. Bookmakers believe they have it sussed and have priced Whittaker as their favourite, Bet365 offering a market best price of 10/13. That has him ahead of Adesanya who has been chalked up at 6/5 with Ladbrokes.
A Close Call
This looks, on paper, to be a real 50/50 match and when that is the case, regardless of the sport, it makes perfect sense to bet on the competitor with the bigger odds attached. That’s Israel, of course, and we’re more than happy to oppose the bookies and take a chance on the upset. For our stake, we get a better price on a very good fighter.
