Tony Ferguson vs Justin Gaethje
UFC 249 Free Picks and Predictions on this interim lightweight title fight between Tony Ferguson vs Justin Gaethje. This main event is set for Saturday, April 18 at 9pm et. The original location was supposed to be at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, but with that location out, there are talks on it being on native land in Florida with no fighting sanctions.
The current odds have Tony Ferguson as a -170 favorite, with Justin Gaethje at +150
Gaethje has stepped up on short notice to save this card due to Khabib pulling out due to all the unknown stuff surrounding this coronavirus and travel.
Tony Ferguson “el cucuy” comes into this fight with a full camp behind him, 26-3 overall and on a 12-fight win streak with his last lost coming in 2012 verse Michael Johnson. Ferguson’s mixture of jiu-jitsu and technical striker ability give him the upper hand in this fight but don’t underestimate Gaethje being a former All American wrestler combined with his knockout power.
Justin Gaethje comes into this fight 21-2 overall with a three-fight winning streak, with all three victories coming by knockout in the first round. Including his last fight verse Cerrone in September, Barboza in March, then James Vick back in 2018.
Our numbers show that Gaethje most likely come out the gate strong, but we feel the best opportunity to make money on this is to lay the juice and take Ferguson at the -170 price.
Good Luck To Everyone!
