UFC 250 Betting Odds/Predictions (bet365 NJ): Cody Garbrandt (-150) vs. Raphael Assuncao (+125)
One might assume Garbrandt would seek something akin to a tune-up fight after suffering three knockout (or TKO) finishes in a row, but a meeting with 27-7 Assuncao promises to be anything but.
Garbrandt leads the odds at -150 (1.67) but is almost four years removed from his last victory having beaten Dominick Cruz by decision to win the UFC bantamweight championship in December 2016.
Assuncao, 37, has lost his last two bouts and last fought in August, but defeats to Sandhagen and bantamweight title contender Marlon Moraes—both in 2019—look more respectable by comparison.
Interest will be high to see Garbrandt emerge after more than a year out of the octagon, with nine-year UFC veteran Assuncao not to be overlooked despite being the smaller name.
