UFC 253 comes packed with fireworks from both inside the octagon and the betting lines as middleweight king Israel Adesanya settles his grudge with the unbeaten destroyer, Paulo Costa. Both fighters are explosive strikers and with ill will all but guaranteeing heated exchanges. Co-headlining are red-hot fighters Dominick Reyes and Jan Blachowicz facing off for the vacant light heavyweight title. Let's break down these fights and see which bets we can cash.
Moto Grand Prix of the Americas 2019
Given his past domination, it's no surprise Marquez is the overwhelming favorite to win the latest version of the GP North America, with sportsbooks such as William Hill listing him on top at -300.
After a narrow loss to veteran Ducati Team rider Andrea Dovizioso in the season opener in Qatar, Marquez quickly redeemed himself when the series shifted to South America, winning the Argentine GP two weeks ago by almost 10 seconds over former World Champion Valentino Rossi - an almost unheard of margin of victory at the highest level of motorcycle racing.
MotoGP 2019 Odds
While there's no doubt Marquez is the top choice on paper to win in Texas, the race is run on the track and with so little betting value on the defending champ, there are a few others in the race that could be considered to pull off the upset.
Early in the season it looks like Dovizioso is the main rival and is listed at +750 for this weekend's race. He followed up his close victory in Qatar with a third-place finish in Argentina and sits second behind Marquez in the early championship standings.
He was fifth at Austin in 2018, one spot behind fellow Italian Rossi, who is also listed at +750 going into Sunday's race. You can never count out either wily veteran, and if Marquez should falter due to mechanical issues or anything else, one of the two Italian riders could be right there to take advantage.
MotoGP Americas Long Shots
Loking at some of the other young riders on in the series trying to steal some of the thunder, 23-year-old Team Suzuki MotoGP rider Alex Rins has been just off the podium so far this season, finishing fourth in Qatar and then fifth in Argentina. It seems like he's right on the verge of a breakthrough, and can be bet for the win at a very tempting +1600.
Others worth a second look include Brit Cal Crutchlow (+1400) the teammate of Marquez at Team Honda MotoGP and the third-place finisher in the season opener, or Australian Jack Miller (+2000) who got up for fourth two weeks ago in Argentina.
If you want to consider the angle of others who have had success on the Austin circuit, then last year's runner-up Maverick Vinales (+1400) offers good value to turn the tables on Marquez in 2019.
MotoGP Championship Odds
With the 2019 racing season just nicely underway, things have so far gone pretty much as expected when it comes to the betting odds for the season championship. It looks very much like Marquez will continue to be the one to beat as the season goes on, while the rest of the field and the betting public continue to try and find a chink in the Spanish superstar's armour.
