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

After a hiatus of more than two years from the sport, the UFC’s largest star Conor McGregor is back in action, looking to recover his lightweight title from undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in Las Vegas on October 6. The champ, Nurmagomedov, opened as the betting favorite at -160 together with the challenger, McGregor, coming back since the +120 underdog.
Both of these warriors have a good deal of terrible blood stemming from an altercation involving Khabib and Conor’s friend and teammate Artem Lobov before UFC 223 in New York in April. The highly anticipated struggle is official and sportsbooks like BetOnline happen to be accepting wagers with this forthcoming bout.
How to bet McGregor vs Khabib
When it comes to gambling for the first time, the odds you most commonly hear are on the moneyline. The launching moneyline had Khabib since the -160 favored, while McGregor came back since the +120 underdog. Fundamentally, moneyline is a fancy term for who is going to win.
But just what can +120 and -160 mean? Well, for your minus-money, you may need to wager that much to make $100 so in the case of the scrap, you would bet $160 to make a profit of $100 for a total of $260. Betting on McGregor in +120 means that in case you wager $100, you could profit an additional $120 for a total of 220. On a smaller scale, for each dollar you bet on McGregor, you could gain $1.20, whereas you would need to bet $1.60 to gain $1 if you bet on Khabib.
The cause of this can be oddsmakers give the edge to Khabib to win and they would like you to wager more to get a smaller benefit. On the other hand, if you bet on Conor, that oddsmakers believe will shed, you can make more of a gain when he pulls off the upset.
So far this season when it comes to underdogs vs favorites, the underdogs have won 36.1 percent of conflicts, with the biggest upset by Paul Craig at +535 (for every dollar you wagered, you’d have profited $5.35) over Magomed Akalaev.
With the introduction odds of -160 for Khabib and +120 for Conor, sportsbooks anticipate a close struggle. For contrast, when Conor fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the past year’s superfight, the undefeated fighter opened at -800 with the UFC celebrity coming back at +500, which reveals a massive disparity and a more lopsided view of this bout.
