Time to contact our ways with the best bets for UFC 221.
BEN NGUYEN (+100) VS JUSSIER FORMIGA (-120)
Jussier Formiga (20-5) can grapple and contains one of the best back matches in the business. He’s an leech when he gets his hooks in. But though Formiga has a better body of work contrary to some world-class guys in the division, it is hard to bet against rising star Ben Nguyen (16-6).
“Ben 10” has improved certain aspects of his game, like scrambling and takedown defense, in order to keep his struggles standing. Why? He’ll knock his opponent’s head off because if his struggles stay vertical. He is a title contender who is only UFC loss came in what was a slobber-knocker of a fight, into Louis Smolka.
This +100 moneyline for Nguyen in BetOnline is a nice round number to wager on.
