Unfortunately for Jones, that victory was whipped away by an NSAC violation, after testing positive for marijuana. Luckily for sports bettors, none of that matters, and bets are finalized on the night of the fight, and bettors who backed Jones that evening walked away with a +470 dog in their pocket.

Bautista is lined at -225 on the moneyline, and in a fight that is expected to go the distance, you are asking for a lot to go Bautista’s way by betting him to win by decision.
