UFC Vegas 21 is ready to blast off tonight from the UFC’s APEx facility in Las Vegas, Nevada. The principle occasion would be the setting for the return of the promotion’s #3 ranked welterweight, Leon Edwards, who will probably be taking over the #13 ranked, Belal Muhammad. Bloody Elbow is right here to offer you the betting traces for this matchup, in addition to for the remainder of the UFC Vegas 21 lineup.
After lacking the last-five months of 2019, after which all of 2020, Edwards is lastly making that stroll once more and will probably be doing in order a robust betting favourite. For a value of -240, a profitable $110 gamble on Leon will get you a complete payout of $141.67. That leaves Muhammad within the underdog slot at +221, with a successful $100 ticket bringing again $321 altogether.
In keeping with the chances, thIs five-round essential occasion will expertise all 25-minutes. The prop guess ‘Combat goes to resolution’ sits with a popular moneyline of -180, with the ‘Combat doesn’t go to resolution’ choice stationed at +150. A fast have a look at the numbers and it’s clear why the bookies really feel this manner. For Leon, 9 out his twelve UFC bouts went the gap. For Belal, 9 out his twelve UFC bouts went the gap. Nicely that’s actually bizarre.
So, sure they possess a bunch of selections between the 2, nonetheless, there are a few x-factors to think about. That is Muhammad’s greatest step up in competitors, whereas Edwards is taking a little bit of a step down. That’s probably not an x-factor, nevertheless it does present wonderful framework to whittle down their similar data to a extra practical expertise stage. Talking of expertise, Edwards has spent way more time preventing in five-round fights, and extra just lately at that. Can Muhammad preserve his tempo for 25-minutes? We don’t actually know but. Additionally, will Leon present any rust from his time away from competitors, and what kind of chip will probably be on his shoulder after the fixed disrespect being thrown his manner? At first look, it looks as if this one’s going the gap, however after taking a more in-depth look, I’m not so certain anymore.
