If you’re going to bet this fight, the best way to back Justin Jaynes in this one is by betting him on the straight-up moneyline. Justin Jaynes is a +246 underdog on the UFC odds board, and is lined at +325 to win ‘Inside the Distance’, his opponent Devonte Smith has only been finished once in his UFC career, which came in his last fight against the heavy underdog Khama Worthy.

If you’re going to back Devonte Smith in this one, you are paying a steep price on both the moneyline, and the ‘Inside the Distance’ prop. Justin Jaynes has been finished in 2 of his 3 UFC bouts, and Smith has won by stoppage in all 3 of his UFC victories. Since the market is seemingly priced out on Devonte Smith, your best bet is to back the ‘Under 1.5’ rounds at -155, considering you are getting the same price on the ‘Inside the Distance’ prop as you are on the Under, thus protecting yourself incase Justin Jaynes pulls off the upset victory.
