If you’re going to bet this fight, and you plan to back Darrick Minner, the best value you can get on the UFC Odds board is on the ‘Inside the Distance’ prop at +325. Minner has 22 wins by submission in his MMA career, and has yet to see the third round in a fight in the UFC octagon. However, it may be a little bit greedy to take that +325 ‘ITD’ line, when you get Minner on the ‘to Win Outright’ moneyline at +169, especially considering that Rosa has only been stopped once in his UFC career, and managed to go 15 minutes with UFC Men’s Bantamweight grapple extraordinaire Bryce Mitchell. A great pair of bets to make on this fight is to bet the ‘Over 1.5 Rounds’ prop at -155, along with Minner at +169. Even though Minner has gone 3-0 to the Under in his UFC career, Charles Rosa tends to have long drawn out rights, and if Minner is willing to grapple with him, this one might last longer than what the better market is expecting.
The betting trends are on your side when backing the ‘Over’ in this bout, with 46 of the last 64 UFC Men’s Featherweight bouts going ‘Over’ the betting total, cashing at a 71.9% rate, going 46-18 for +16.32 units profit over the last 13 months. Meanwhile, in more recent history, 34 of the first 57 UFC fights in 2021 have gone the distance, cashing at a 59.6% rate.
