Public Betting Splits: UFC Fight Night Yusuff vs. Barboza

Sharps Like Yusuff, Public Wants Barboza

One of the most obvious public betting splits for tonight’s Yusuff-Barboza card is on the main event itself. Edson Barboza, the underdog, has drawn 62% of the bets but only 34% of the handle. Despite the proportion of action coming in on Barboza — and the volume of cash coming in on Sodiq Yusuff, BetMGM hasn’t adjusted the line at all. If you’re looking to tail the sharps, back Yusuff.

Jennifer Maia a Sharp Favorite

Unlike Sodiq Yusuff, sharp action appears to have moved the line in favor of the favorite to win tonight’s penultimate bout, Maia-Araujo. Jennifer Maia has drawn 89% of the cash on just 69% of the tickets, leading BetMGM to move the line from -150 to -160. That’s not a massive difference, but it’s a meaningful one. Maia is still trading as short as -155 at DraftKings, so if you’re looking to tail the sharps but not pay the steeper price, head there for a better line.

Adrian Yanez a Public Favorite

Tonight’s Martinez-Yanez bout is functionally a pick’em. Jonathan Martinez is ever-so-slightly favored, owning odds of -115 relative to Adrian Yanez’s -105. Still, the public is all over the dog in this spot — Yanez has attracted 71% of the tickets at BetMGM on only 48% of the handle. If you’re here to find out the UFC public betting splits in order to fade the popular option, this is the right fight to target.
