How & Where to Bet on McGregor vs Khabib UFC 229 Fight

After a hiatus of over two years in the game, the UFC’s largest star Conor McGregor is back in action, trying to recover his lightweight title from undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 at Las Vegas on October 6. The champ, Nurmagomedov, started as the betting favorite at -160 with the challenger, McGregor, coming back as the +120 underdog.
These two warriors have a lot of bad blood coming from an altercation involving Khabib and Conor’s friend and teammate Artem Lobov earlier UFC 223 at New York in April. The highly anticipated fight is official and sportsbooks such as BetOnline have been accepting wagers on this upcoming bout.
To bet McGregor vs Khabib
If it comes to gambling for the first time, the odds you commonly hear are about the moneyline. While McGregor came back since the +120 underdog the opening moneyline had Khabib as the -160 favored. Basically, moneyline is a fancy term for who will win.
But just what can +120 and -160 mean? Well, for the minus-money, you would need to bet that much to make $100 so in the instance of this scrap, you would bet $160 to earn a gain of $100 for a total of $260. Betting on McGregor in +120 means that in case you bet $100, you could gain an extra $120 for a total of $220. On a smaller scale, for each dollar you bet on McGregor, you can gain $1.20, whereas you would have to bet $1.60 to gain $1 in the event that you bet on Khabib.
The cause of this is oddsmakers give the edge to Khabib to win and they want you to bet more for a smaller benefit. On the other hand, if you bet on Conor, that oddsmakers think will lose, you can make more of a gain when he pulls off the upset.
So far this season when it has to do with underdogs versus favorites, the underdogs have won 36.1 percentage of conflicts, with the largest upset by Paul Craig in +535 (for each dollar you wagered, you would have gained $5.35) over Magomed Akalaev.
With the opening odds of -160 for Khabib and +120 for Conor, sportsbooks expect a close struggle. For contrast, when Conor fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. in last year’s superfight, the undefeated boxer opened at -800 together with the UFC celebrity coming back at +500, which shows a huge disparity and a more lopsided perspective of the bout.
