UFC on ESPN+ 30 comes from Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, this Saturday night on ESPN+.
The betting public, whether they are casual or every day types, are ready for more MMA action. There are a number of UFC division betting trends that should be considered before making your bets this weekend. Some divisions have more probable outcomes than others. Let’s take a look at each fight on the UFC card, and highlight each active division trend.

Let’s start with the ESPN+ preliminary card.


Preliminary Card (ESPN+)

UFC Men’s Heavyweight
Sergey Spivak (-140) vs Carlos Felipe (+135)
Total: 1.5 Rounds 

Division Trends – Since 2019:
Coin Flip Dogs: 14-7, +7.57u
Dogs: 25-35-2, +1.1u

Since 2020:
Over: 11-8, +2.07u

As we have chronicled over the last few months, the ‘coin flip’ underdog in the UFC Men’s Heavyweight division has been one of the most profitable trends to back since 2019. The ‘coin flip’ means any underdog that closes vs a favorite of -150 or better. Usually, with two upper-class UFC heavyweights, you will see a lot of fights sit at the -110/-110 range, so it is important to wait right until fight time to get in on the underdog side. As we have seen many times before, the underdog on Thursday does not always close as the underdog on Saturday night, so if you’re riding this trend, be sure to get your pick in late on this one. Spivak opened as a -120 favorite at most books and has since dropped to has high as -155, currently sitting just outside of that ‘coin flip’ range. Keep your eye where this line closes. Even if Spivak slips outside of the ‘coin flip range’ Carlos Felipe may still have value as a heavyweight underdog. Since the start of 2019, the dog in the UFC Men’s Heavyweight division has gone 25-35-2, for +1.1 units profit. If you were going to ride this trend, it would be suggested to wait until more money comes in on Spivak. Based on the 2019 underdog trend, implied probability has the value on the dog at +148 or better, while Carlos Felipe is currently sitting at +122. As far as the total goes, over the last seven months the ‘Over’ has been a profitable and probable trend to back in the heavyweight division. Hitting at a 58% rate, with a record of 11-8 for +2.07 units profit. Implied probability has the value on the ‘Over’ in this division at -137 or better, while the Over 1.5 rounds prop is currently sitting at -147 in this fight. This is another wager where you best see where the line goes before committing to betting anything serious, but the value should definitely end up being on the Over by post time. 



UFC Men’s Lightweight
Arman Tsarukyan (-195) vs Davi Ramos (+186)
Total: 2.5 Rounds

Division Trends – Since 2019:
Favorites: 74-28, +6.58u

Arman Tsarukyan is currently sitting as a -213 favorite, with the ‘buy price’ on the favorite in Lightweight being at around -263 or better. If you’re riding the trends, a bet on Tsarukyan here would be the right play to make. As for the total, the Over has hit at a 61% rate since 2019, going 63-40 for +1.46 units.
