After a hiatus of over two years in the game, the UFC’s biggest star Conor McGregor is back in action, looking to reclaim his lightweight title from undefeated Khabib Nurmagomedov in UFC 229 at vegas on October 6. The champ, Nurmagomedov, started as the betting favorite at -160 together with the challenger, McGregor, coming back as the +120 underdog.
Both of these warriors have a lot of bad blood stemming from an altercation between Khabib and Conor’s friend and teammate Artem Lobov before UFC 223 at New York in April. The highly anticipated struggle is official and sportsbooks like BetOnline have been accepting wagers with this forthcoming bout.
How to wager McGregor vs Khabib
If it comes to betting for the first time, the odds you commonly hear are about the moneyline. While McGregor came back as the +120 underdog the launching moneyline had Khabib as the -160 favorite. Fundamentally, moneyline is a fancy term for who is going to win.
However, what can +120 and -160 mean? Well, for your minus-money, you would need to bet that much to earn $100 so in the instance of the scrap, you would wager $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 gain an extra $120 for a total of 220. On a smaller scale, for each dollar you wager on McGregor, you can profit $1.20, whereas you would need to bet $1.60 to profit $1 in the event that you wager on Khabib.
The reason for this can be oddsmakers give the edge to Khabib to win and they want you to bet more for a smaller reward. On the flip side, if you bet on Conor, who oddsmakers believe will shed, you can make more of a gain when he pulls off the upset.
So far this season when it has to do with underdogs vs favorites, the underdogs have won 36.1 percentage of fights, 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 opening odds of -160 for Khabib and +120 for Conor, sportsbooks expect a close fight. For contrast, when Conor fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the past year’s superfight, the undefeated fighter opened at -800 together with the UFC star coming back at +500, which reveals a massive disparity and a more lopsided perspective of this bout.
