All odds as of April 22
Zhang vs Namajunas Beneath 4.5 Rounds
I actually just like the below within the co-main occasion between Weili Zhang vs Rose Namajunas.
Getting into the battle, nearly all of folks count on this battle to go the gap as a result of it’s strawweights, and traditionally, strawweight fights hit the scorecards, however this battle appears completely different. Zhang proved her energy in touchdown heavy photographs towards Joanna Jedrzejczyk, who by some means didn’t get completed. However, if you happen to look previous that, Zhang ran by Jessica Andrade in 42 seconds, who was often known as being sturdy, she additionally has 17 of her 21 wins by stoppage.

Why I just like the below is because of how Namajunas seemed in her final battle. In opposition to Andrade, the previous champ was hit a ton and, after three rounds seemed gassed. If she will get hit that a lot on this battle and will get gassed she is going to get completed. It additionally helps you on the Namajunas facet, as there’s a probability she might catch the champ in a submission, however the below 4.5 rounds within the UFC 261 props has nice worth.
Decide: Weili Zhang-Rose Namajunas Beneath 4.5 (+110)
Struggle Goes The Distance Odds
|Matchup||Sure Odds||No Odds|
|Usman vs Masvidal||-167||+125|
|Zhang vs Namajunas||-134||+100|
|Shevchenko vs Andrade||+105||-139|
|Weidman vs Corridor||+100||-134|
|Smith vs Crute||+133||-177|
Usman-Masvidal Doesn’t Go The Distance
The primary time Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal fought, it was on quick discover, and it went the gap in a really lackluster battle. Nevertheless, this time round, I do count on there to be a end.
After Usman beat Gilbert Burns by third-round TKO, he referred to as out “Gamebred” as he was mad at himself for not ending Masvidal. In his final battle, which was his second full coaching camp below Trevor Wittman, Usman’s jab seemed significantly better, and he had extra energy behind his photographs. He additionally has the bottom recreation the place he might catch Masvidal with a submission as effectively, however there isn’t any query he will probably be gunning for the stoppage.
On the opposite facet, Masvidal’s solely path to victory is to KO the champ, and we noticed Burns rock Usman final day trip. There’s a slight probability he might try this, particularly if Usman is chasing the end and makes a mistake and will get caught. Regardless, I don’t assume the judges will probably be wanted this time round.
Decide: Usman-Masvidal doesn’t go the gap (+125)

Though Shevchenko has solely completed one in every of her previous three fights, I like her to get the end as a result of approach Jessica Andrade fights. The Brazilian likes charging ahead, however as we noticed within the Weili Zhang battle, when that occurs she leaves her head and physique open, and I count on Shevchenko to take benefit.
I count on Shevchenko to take her out within the center rounds and end Andrade through TKO. This UFC 261 prop is listed at +195 at DraftKings.
Decide: Valentina Shevchenko by KO/TKO/DQ (+195)
