On the main card of UFC Vegas 12, Kevin Holland will take the octagon with Charlie Ontiveros in a middleweight bout this Saturday live from Las Vegas, Nevada and available on ESPN+.

On a three-match win streak, Holland will open as the favorite. He’s 7-2 in the UFC and should earn a top-15 fighter if he can get the victory.

Leaning on his striking heavily, Holland delivers 4.69 significant strikes per minute, landing 56 percent of his attempts. Not a grappler, Holland is a good defender, absorbing just 2.85 significant strikes and defending 56 percent.

If it’s a striking bout Holland wants, it’ll be one he gets as Ontiveros has four knockouts to his name. With an 11-6 record in the MMA, Ontiveros is making his debut. All six of those losses have come via knockout, making this a tough matchup for the 29-year-old

Here are the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook for Kevin Holland vs. Makhmud Muradov at UFC Vegas 12 on October 31st.

Betting splits

Kevin Holland: -715, (bet splits not available)
Charlie Ontiveros: +475 (bet splits not available)

DraftKings DFS Values

Kevin Holland: $8,200
Charlie Ontiveros: $6,700

At this bargain-basement price, bet Holland. There’s yet to be released a reason why Makhmud Muradov withdrew, but the price savings here simply too good to turn down.

Against a young fighter that has given up knockouts before and having a strike-heavy style, if this goes the distance you’ll get points. And if it doesn't, it’ll overwhelmingly likely be Holland ending it early.
