  • Daniel Cormier – 1.71
  • Stipe Miocic – 2.20

Also featured on the card are fan favourite tilts between former lightweights competing at welterweight, Anthony Pettis and Nate Diaz, and middleweight contenders Yoel Romero and Paulo Costa. With extensive betting analysis, here is our UFC odds preview.

UFC 241 Quick Betting Facts:

  • Daniel Cormier’s last four victories have come via finish (4-0-1)

  • Anthony Pettis has not won consecutive fights since 2014
  • Nate Diaz is 2-3 when opening as a favourite in his last five fights

UFC 241 Best Picks

UFC 241 has a loaded card from top to bottom. This is one of the “Big Four” cards the UFC releases each year, the best pay-per-view they have to offer once per season. This punctuates the UFC’s summer events series following UFC 240 in Edmonton.

Let’s look at the three biggest fights taking place on this card and break down their UFC odds:

Daniel Cormier vs Stipe Miocic

As the winner of their first bout, Cormier is the favourite at 1.71 with the comeback on the former champ, Miocic at 2.28. Cormier came in as an underdog in their first bout but shocked everyone when he not only defeated Miocic (who set a heavyweight record with three title defenses) but knocked him out in just one round.

Cormier is undefeated as a heavyweight. In fact, the only fighter he’s lost to is Jon Jones, the greatest fighter of all time according to many. As an elite wrestler, Cormier is also incredibly durable and powerful as a striker. He surprised Miocic when he fought him up close. 

Miocic will make adjustments this time. He’ll use his reach more to his advantage and keep Cormier at a distance.

But with how tough Cormier is, this is easier said than done. Cormier should still capitalize on pressuring Miocic and cutting the distance without being too aggressive. 

Cormier should win this one again even if it is a lot closer than the first bout. Bet on Cormier to win and put a little on him to win by decision.

Pick: Daniel Cormier by Decision.

Anthony Pettis vs Nate Diaz

Both Pettis and Diaz are popular with fans thanks to their exciting fighting styles. Both are strikers-first but have diverse Jiu-Jitsu games and can win fights either by knockout or submission. Although Diaz opened as a slight favourite, the odds are all over the place. Pettis is 1.87 and Diaz is 2.13 in select books.

As natural lightweights, both Pettis and Diaz will not be shedding too much weight to fight at welterweight. This means their endurance, durability, and power will be better. The main difference between both is their versatility. Pettis moves around more and throws more kinds of attacks while Diaz moves in a straight line and counter-boxes.

If Pettis utilizes his movements, attacks Diaz from different angles, and chops on his legs with kicks, he should win this one. But this isn’t easy as Diaz will constantly pressure him and use his long arms to touch up Pettis. But overall, Pettis’s creativity and wrestling could prove to be the difference.

Pettis should win a contentious decision here. We don’t recommend betting this or if you do, bet on the underdog whoever it might come to fight time.

Pick: Anthony Pettis by Decision

Yoel Romero vs Paulo Costa

These middleweights are fighting for a potential title shot. But both fighters have also not fought in a while due to injuries. Romero is the favourite at 1.68 while Costa is an underdog as high as 2.40. Don’t blink as both of these fighters are known for their highlight reel knockouts.

Costa is a bruiser, a fighter who has knocked out all but one of his eleven opponents. He is unbeaten and looks like a superhero. But he has some red flags as USADA booked him for using unapproved intravenous infusions. Romero, on the other hand, has issues making weight and has missed weight in his last two fights.

Romero is mainly a wrestler but has explosive knockout power. He is also built like a Greek god. His biggest advantage over Costa is his higher level of experience – he has fought and beaten better competition – and he is more experienced going longer. Costa has mainly fought within the first two rounds.

Bet on this fight to end either in round 2 or 3. As far as who wins, bet on Romero as he has more ways to win this fight and when the fight gets tougher, he has more endurance and grit to see it through.

Pick: Yoel Romero by T/KO
