UFC on ESPN+ 65 betting predictions & top odds – June 4, 2022

UFC betting

Movsar Evloev will look to remain undefeated when he takes on Dan Ige in the co-main event of UFC on ESPN+ 65 this Saturday night in Las Vegas. Here’s a pick for that matchup and predictions for the other four fights on the main card leading up to the night’s main event of Alexander Volkov vs Jairzinho Rozenstruik.

Featherweight: Dan Ige (+315) vs Movsar Evloev (-415)

Movsar Evloev (15-0-0) has never lost a fight in his professional MMA career, and he’s off to a 5-0-0 start in the UFC after defeating Hakeem Dawodu by decision at UFC 263 last June. Evloev has been waiting to make his return to the octagon after being forced to pull out of a fight with Ilia Topuria at UFC 270 due to a positive COVID-19 test. All five of Evloev’s UFC wins have come by decision.

It wasn’t long ago that Dan Ige (15-5-0) was a hot prospect in the featherweight division with six straight wins in the UFC and a 14-2 overall record. But he’s just 1-3-0 since then, and a bout against the rock-solid Evloev doesn’t look like a good place for Ige to turn things around. Look for business to continue as usual for both of these fighters as Evloev controls the tempo en route to a decision win.

Featherweight: Michael Trizano (-212) vs Lucas Almeida (+182)

Michael Trizano (9-2-0) has lost two of his last three fights since opening his professional career with an 8-0-0 record that included a 2-0-0 start in the UFC. Lucas Almeida (13-1-0) will be making his UFC debut with the one blemish on his record coming last September during the Dana White’s Contender Series. While Trizano has struggled of late, we at least know that he can compete at this level with a 3-2 record in the UFC; until we see the same from Almeida, we’ve got to go with the favorite here.

Michael Trizano by decision


Women’s Flyweight: Poliana Botelho (+101) vs Karine Silva (-121)

Karine Silva (14-4-0) makes her UFC debut in the midst of a five-fight winning streak. Only one of her first 18 fights (a decision loss) has gone to the judge’s table; she’s got nine knockout wins and five submission wins to date. Poliana Botelho (8-4-0) has lost two straight fights and is 1-3-0 in her last four UFC bouts since winning her first two fights with the promotion. Silva is just too exciting to bet against here, especially at this very reasonable price.

Flyweight: Zarrukh Adashev (+160) vs Ode Osbourne (-185)

Ode Osbourne (10-4-0) is 6-2-0 over his last eight fights with a 2-2-0 record through his first four UFC fights. Zarrukh Adashev (4-3-0) went 3-0-0 in Bellator before coming to the UFC and going 1-2-0 in his first three fights with the promotion. Osbourne has been the more talented fighter to date and should be able to earn a win before the end of the third round in this spot.

Light Heavyweight: Alonzo Menifield (-170) vs Askar Mozharov (+145)

Alonzo Menifield (11-3-0) was once 9-0-0 with eight knockout wins, but he’s only 2-3 over his last five fights with no knockouts over that stretch. Askar Mozharov (21-12-0) will make his UFC debut on Saturday with 13 knockout wins and six submission wins on his resume, though he’s also lost by knockout four times and by submission eight times. As the far more durable fighter with UFC experience, Menifield is correctly listed as the favorite here. But Mozharov’s glass cannon approach has led to 22 of his last 23 fights being over in the first round, so he should be a fun underdog to root for in the brief amount of time this fight lasts.
