Valentina Schevchenko Vs. Lauren Murphy: Win By Knockout
There are levels in the UFC. Unfortunately for Lauren Murphy, Valentina Schevchenko is on a different level as the two head into this championship bout. Legal sports betting sites have taken away most value from Schevchenko on the moneyline, but the method of victory props still have betting value.
Shevchenko Method of Victory Odds
- Shevchenko By KO, TKO Or DQ -150
- Shevchenko By Decision Or Technical Decision +215
- Shevchenko By Submission +325
Murphy has been out-landed in three of her last four fights and let her opponents land over 100 strikes on her in two of her last four bouts. Joanna Calderwood and Andrea Lee are respectable fighters, but if they’re landing 100+ strikes in three rounds, Schevchenko should have a field day with a potential five rounds of work.
