How the public is betting Amanda Nunes vs. Felicia Spencer for UFC 250

Amanda Nunes defenders her featherweight title against Felicia Spencer in the main event of UFC 250 on June 6th. We break down how the betting public is picking the fight.

Update 12:35 am: Amanda Nunes wins by unanimous decision (50-44, 50-44, 50-45).

Props to Felicia Spencer for hanging in there, as she got beaten up for five rounds by what was clearly the more talented fighter, but it was never close.

Update, 3:30 pm: We’ve got updated DraftKings Sportsbook betting splits for Nunes-Spencer money line odds a few hours before UFC 250 gets going. 76 percent of handle and 81 percent of bets are on Nunes, who is -625, to Spencer’s +450 on fight day.

It’s no surprise that two-belt champion Amanda Nunes is a massive favorite in her battle with Canadian Felicia Spencer tonight at UFC 250. But is there value to be found somewhere on the betting lines for the UFC featherweight championship?

Nunes is widely-considered the GOAT of women’s MMA fighters, and her 19-4 career record includes 10 straight victories since March of 2015. When she wins, it’s often by knockout with 13 KO/TKO stoppages. And despite the -182 price being laid, 60% of bets and 59% of the dollars are on her knocking out her Canadian opponent.

Spencer has nothing to lose tonight, and brings in an 8-1 record with six stoppages and four submissions. If she can find a way to pull the biggest upset in UFC women’s history since Holly Holm stunned the world by beating Ronda Rousey, you can get quite the price on a stoppage: It’s +1100 to make Nunes tap, and +1800 to knock her out. But combined, both outcomes are only getting 10% of the action as of now.

Here are the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook for Amanda Nunes vs. Felicia Spencer at UFC 250 on June 6th.
