Rozenstruik vs Almeida Betting Guide: Where and How to Bet
May 13 marks another highly anticipated UFC event in Charlotte, NC, featuring a lineup of captivating fights. The biggest is the Main Card fight between Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Jailton Almeida, who will battle it out in a must-watch heavyweight fight.
Rozenstruik vs Almeida: Who are they?
At 35, Rozenstruik, also referred to as Bigi Boy, is aiming for his second consecutive win. He achieved his previous by defeating Chris Daukaus last December at UFC 282; bringing to an end to Daukaus's winning streak of two fights.
In his first ten professional fights, Rozenstruik, now ninth in the standings, was unbeaten, including four fights in the UFC. However, this changed after his maiden defeat to Francis Ngannou, which he then altered to a stoppage victory.
Known as “Malhadinho,” the 31-year-old Almeida (12th in the standings) seeks his 14th triumph and fifth in the UFC. This includes his achievement in Dana White's Contender Round 39, where he showcased his submission skills against Nasrudin Nasrudinov, Parker Porter, and Anton Turkalj. In addition, he also delivered powerful knockouts against Danilo Marques and Shamil Abdurakhimov.
Overview of Rozenstruik vs Almeida
With a record of 13-4 and 12 knockouts, Rozenstruik is ready to step into the ring. In his more than four-year career in the UFC and 11 fights, he has received three performance awards, all awarded for outstanding performances, including bouts against Allen Crowder, Augusto Sakai, and Chris Daukaus.
With 18 finishes, comprising seven knockouts and 11 submissions to his name, Almeida enters the upcoming fight with a record of 18-2. Despite being in the UFC for less than 24 months, he has already secured two performance awards – both of which were for his standout performances of the night. One was given for his victory over Anton Turkalj, while the other was for his submission of Abdurakhimov.
Betting on Rozenstruik vs Almeida: Where and How to Bet?
This highly-anticipated fight night is available on all sportsbooks. Almeida is currently the favorite to win, and this won't likely change before he enters the octagon with Rozenstruik.
Rozenstruik, at 6'2″, and Almeida, at 6'3″, are fairly evenly-matched in height. However, Almeida beats his opponent by an inch in reach, which could give him an advantage. He also has a leg reach of 43.5 inches, 2.5 inches more than Rozenstruik.
On the other hand, Rozenstruik is 30 pounds heavier (261 vs. 232), and this gives him additional power in his punches. The 1″ difference in reach won't be a problem.
In college football, some bettors choose 20-30 favored teams and place large bets on them to win outright. However, this system is unsuccessful when it comes to the UFC. With countless moves and tactics available across various aspects of combat, there are always unexpected results. Don't arbitrarily back the favorites; consider the fighters' recent performances, how long it has been since their last fight, their physical attributes, and their overall records.
While Rozenstruik has more power on his side, Almeida is in better physical condition and is able to maneuver quickly. This will allow him to avoid incoming blows and deliver fast contact. Bigi Boy may be better at absorbing hits, but Malhadinho is going to tire him out and capture the win.
How to Place a Bet
The most common option in UFC sports betting is the moneyline for the winner. Once bettors decide who they want to back, they should check the lines on various online sportsbooks to see which has the most favorable odds for their bets. They can then place their bet on the best option available. This might require registering for a new account, but that only takes a few minutes.
