UFC 197 Prop Betting Value and UFC Schedule Changes
Online sportsbooks were planning to release dozens of prop bets on the rematch between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier at UFC 197 on April 23.
An injury sustained by Daniel Cormier forced the bout to be scrapped and instead gamblers are left with wagering on Jon Jones vs. Ovince Saint Preux.
Sportsbook Review Picks recently covered how bettors are punished with each UFC betting schedule alteration.
A silver lining for advantage players, such as the bettors who participate in the SBR Handicapper Think Tank forum, may come with the UFC 197 main event as the lines for Jones vs. Saint Preux figure to be overly inflated as much of the public believe the bout to be a walkover for Jones.
Whenever lines are overly influenced by the court of public opinion, unique wagering value can often be found through prop betting markets. Sportsbook Review has compiled a list of all UFC 197 prop betting markets released by betting sites so far. While it is slim pickens in comparison to a Jones vs. Cormier tilt, smart handicappers can find small crevices in the offerings due to how lopsided the market is in favor of Jones.

News also broke yesterday that UFC star Conor McGregor announced his retirement via Twitter: Sportsbooks subsequently cancelled the wagering market for McGregor vs. Diaz II scheduled for UFC 200.
