Opening betting splits for July 25th Fight Island card

The two women’s fights on the July 25th UFC card have intriguing splits.

UFC is wrapping up its time at Fight Island this weekend with a UFC Fight Night event on ESPN. The company and its contracted fighters are in Abu Dhabi with four cards on the schedule, and the final one is headlined by a middleweight contenders bout between top-ranked Robert Whittaker and third-ranked Darren Till. The preliminary card gets underway at 5 p.m. ET and the main card gets going at 8 p.m.

We don’t have full splits due to some questions about fights and other uncertainties, but this is a helpful jumping-off point for further down the card. Odds have already changed for some of these fights, and we’ll continue updating later in the week.

Many of the favorites are getting the love as usual, but we have some early splits that will be worth tracking over the week. For example, +108 underdog Bethe Correia is getting 61 percent of total bets, but -134 favorite Pannie Kianzad is getting 94 percent of the handle. The line has moved for Kianzad, moving up from -124, while Correia had opened at even money.

The other women’s fight on the card between Marina Rodriguez (-167) and Carla Esparza (+134) is the other with a split between handle and bets. The underdog Esparza is getting 68 percent of total bets while the favored Rodriguez is getting 70 percent of the handle. This has resulted in movement after Rodriguez opened at -155 and Esparza opened at +125.

Here is your rundown of opening betting splits a day removed from Saturday’s final Fight Night at Fight Island.
