Here are the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook for Bobby Green vs. Thiago Moses at UFC Vegas 12 on October 31st.
Bobby Green: -335, (68% of action, 87% of bets)
Thiago Moises: +245, (32% of action, 13% of bets)
Bobby Green: $9,000
Thiago Moises: $7,200
Green has all the value in this one. Moises isn’t a great defender, and Green lets fights go the distance. The most likely outcome seems like a unanimous decision for Green after he’s delivered a whirlwind of strikes.
That might make his lofty $9k price tag worth it. It doesn’t seem likely he’ll get a crazy first-round knockout, but averaging over 70 fantasy points per fight and notching over 80 in his last three, he’s a great value even at such a high price.
