As Nunes is a sizeable favorite, her odds always float lower than Spencer’s will in any category.
The method of victory odds for Nunes that are the most favored is for Nunes to win by TKO / KO (-180). As the only method with negative odds, oddsmakers are heavily leaning toward this result and even list +150 odds for Nunes to not win by TKO / KO.
Nunes has won 13 of her 19 UFC victories by knockout, but despite her extreme favorite status and the likelihood of winning inside the distance (-205), Nunes could put oddsmakers for a loop and do it earlier than anticipated.
If Nunes wins in Round 1 (+220), the legal sports betting sites could take a loss from the bettors who saw the opportunity.
Nunes has seen eight of her last 13 matches end in the first round, with all eight of those finishes coming with a victory to her name.
For those who believe in Spencer to surprise, any method of victory could be a bankroll changing move for a bettor.
