- Amanda Nunes (-625) is heavily favored over Felicia Spencer (+450) to retain her Featherweight Title.
- The UFC main event has seen the underdog win in the last five matches.
LAS VEGAS – The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its return to betting menus this weekend as UFC 250 takes place Saturday at the APEX Center in Las Vegas with no fans in attendance due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This will be the fifth event held by the UFC amid the pandemic and it doesn’t seem like the UFC will stop holding future events, as the Nevada State Athletic Commission recently approved the Nunes fight card. They also approved two Top Rank boxing cards, which should be coming to sportsbooks soon.
The greatest female fighter UFC has seen in Amanda Nunes will be defending her Featherweight title against Felicia Spencer in the main event of UFC 250.
These two were originally supposed to fight each other at UFC 249 but due to the coronavirus, the UFC had to reschedule their fight.
There will be a full slate of fights including two preliminary rounds which should give bettors plenty of options to win big at legal sportsbooks.
UFC 250 Main Card Odds
Nunes vs. Spencer – Featherweight Title Fight:
- Amanda Nunes -625
- Felicia Spencer +450
Amanda Nunes (19-4) is a heavy favorite in this fight against Felicia Spencer (8-1) and for good reason.
Nunes has been the most dominant woman in the UFC and has defended her title(s) seven straight times dating back to July 2016.
Nunes has won her last ten fights and despite the +450 odds for Spencer they should be avoided at all costs as Nunes also has the advantage in reach and height. Spencer has not faced Nunes before and adjusting to the power of Nunes will be vital for Spencer to have a chance in this fight.
Take the -625 odds on Nunes to win her eleventh straight fight and further cement herself as the greatest female fighter the UFC has ever seen.
While the UFC has been leading sports betting, it could be expected that UFC 250 will be an even bigger betting event UFC 249 at sportsbooks this weekend. This will give bookies a much needed boost to revenue numbers as there will be no other major sports to bet on this weekend.
UFC 250 will be held Saturday, June 6 with the undercard fights starting at 6 p.m. ET. The main card is scheduled to begin at 10 p.m. ET and can be streamed on ESPN+.
