UFC 207 Betting Recap: Nunes Backers Celebrate at SBR Forum
It was a brief and glorious 48 seconds for online sports bettors who wagered on Amanda Nunes retaining her title against Ronda Rousey.
Despite Rousey's 13 month absence from the Octagon, online sportsbooks installed the vaunted American as a -160 favorite. Late steam came in on Rousey pushing her past -180 at a few sportsbooks. View closing UFC betting odds.
Bettors who rolled the dice that the Brazilian champ would knockout Rousey (KO/TKO) cashed over two-times their wager.
There was a variety of UFC prop betting options to wager on Rousey not winning, all which involved a fair amount of chalk, but made for easy paydays for bettors who just didn't believe Rousey would come through as a favorite after an embarrassing loss while on top of the world against Holly Holm last year.
Rousey NOT winning by KO or TKO was listed at the betting odds of -975. Many believed at SBR Forum that the American would have to submit Nunes or win by way of decision, so this market was profitable for those willing to lay nearly ten units to profit one, though there was a contingent of Nunes bettors who called their shot from the getgo.
