Over the last two years, there have been 28 bouts in the ONE Men’s Flyweight division with odds posted; of those 28 fights, 20 of them have been won by the betting favorite.

Adriano Moraes vs Demetrious Johnson: Best Bets

Demetrious Johnson comes into Wednesday’s main event having gone to decision in 7 of his last 14 fights, picking up the victory on the judge’s scorecards in 6 of those 7 decisions, with the only loss being his UFC Flyweight Championship loss to Henry Cejudo.

As for Adriano Moraes, all 3 of his losses in his MMA career have come via split decision, this is a fighter who has never been stoppage, and has never lost by unanimous decision. Between both ‘Mighty Mouse’ Johnson and ‘Mikinho’ seven of their previous eight fights combined have gone ‘Over’ the betting total, with 6 of those 8 going the distance.

The ‘fight goes the distance’ prop is lined at -130, which is the most likely path to victory for the heavy favorite Demetrious Johnson. Meanwhile, it seems like the path to victory for Moraes is a narrow space in the early rounds of this fight. It’s classic MMA betting scenario where the ‘Over’ correlates with one fighter winning, while the ‘Under’ correlates with their opponent winning. In this case, it seems rather unlikely that Moraes will be able to keep up with ‘Mighty Mouse’ for a full 25 minutes, there is still a path to victory for him that sees him getting a submission victory in the early rounds. However, the longer this fight goes, the more it will favor the savvy veteran in Johnson.

It’s been awfully tough pinpointing the best way to bet this fight, but a combination of wagering 2.1 units on Johnson on the ‘to Win by Decision’ prop at -105 (via 1XBet), and 0.4 units on Moreas on the moneyline seem like the best way to go. You set yourself up for a 1.5 unit profit if Johnson is able to get the decision victory, while you can save your wager on the Moraes moneyline, that can be found at some places at odds as high as +500.

Apart from picking an outright winner, the ‘Fight Goes the Distance’ prop at -130 seems like the most probable outcome, and is worth a full unit stake.
