UFC 229: Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov Betting Odds

Conor McGregor vs Khabib Nurmagomedov is a battle of styles the game of MMA was created for. Maybe the best striker at the match vs the best grappler in this sport is a fantasy struggle for UFC fans and Nurmagomedov, the existing UFC lightweight champion, is favored to succeed -170 with McGregor coming back at +140. The mega-fight will take place tonight in vegas at UFC 229.
From a promotional standpoint, making that the fight is a dream come true for the UFC since it will undoubtedly be one of the most lucrative events in their own history, and from a gaming perspective, there’s lots of money to be produced also. McGregor fans will probably be foaming at the mouth to place a wager about the Irishman, particularly at plus-money, however is that a smart bet vs the 26-0 Nurmagomedov, whose smothering grappling design has been completely unsolvable?
McGregor’s grappling skills are probably in the typical range and that is an area where he’s been cared for before. A considerably smaller Chad Mendes easily took McGregor to the mat if he wished to UFC 189 (yes, I understand McGregor won the fight), and he had been choked out by Nate Diaz in UFC 196.
He can have a significant disadvantage when it comes to wrestling, however, there are different regions where McGregor would have a certain upper hand, most especially with his hands. Eighteen of his 21 professional wins have come via T/KO and he has a very impressive hit list which includes endings of Jose Aldo, Eddie Alvarez, Dustin Poirier and, of course, Paulie Malignaggi (insert smiley face emoji here).
Line Movement (or lack thereof)
If the quantity of gambling action McGregor received vs Floyd Mayweather is some indication, some bettors certainly do not care how he matches stylistically — after opening at +950 vs Mayweather, McGregor closed at +265 because of an avalanche of bets placed on him.
Many, such as myself, assumed that we would have seen far more movement online as a result of plenty of public cash coming in around McGregor, but that hasn’t been the case however. On the day Khabib vs McGregor has been declared, Nurmagomedov opened at -200 with McGregor in +160. With the champ now at -170 and Conor at +140 on the day of the fight, there is still pretty excellent value on McGregor as a puppy and people that are confident in Khabib should feel good about getting him in a much greater number than his opening odds.
