UFC on ESPN+ 29 Opening Betting Odds
Leon Edwards -120
Tyron Woodley -120
Edwards and Woodley opened as a true Pick ’em fight with both men opening at -120 each. That means you would have to bet $120 to win $100 for either man.
Edwards (18-3) is 10-2 overall in the UFC and is currently riding an impressive eight-fight win streak. Last summer, Edwards defeated former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos via unanimous decision to jump into the top-five at 170lbs. He also has notable wins over Donald Cerrone, Vicente Luque, and Gunnar Nelson during his win streak. At just 28 years of age, the Brit looks to be a top welterweight fighter for years to come.
Woodley (19-4-1) is the former UFC welterweight champion and is 9-3-1 overall inside the Octagon. He has not fought since last March when he lost a lopsided unanimous decision to Kamaru Usman to lose his belt. Prior to that, Woodley was unbeaten over seven fights including victories over Robbie Lawler, Stephen Thompson, Demian Maia, Kelvin Gastelum, and Darren Till during that time. At age 37, Woodley may finally be slowing down, but right now he’s still ranked in the top-five at 170lbs.
This should be a tremendous fight between two of the best welterweights in the sport and the winner of the fight could very well be in line to fight either Usman or Jorge Masvidal for the belt after they fight at International Fight Week in July.
