Early money strongly favors Nunes in UFC 277

UFC women’s bantamweight world champion, “The Venezuelan Vixen” Julianna Peña and “The Lioness” Amanda Nunes will face off again for the main event at UFC 277 this Saturday, July 30th at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. 

Nunes is hoping to reclaim her bantamweight title from Peña in one of the most highly anticipated fights in recent memory. Peña shocked the world when she beat Nunes at UFC 269 last December in what many have called one of the greatest upsets in UFC history.

Nunes is currently a -280 favorite at online sportsbook BetUS and is coming off a 12-fight winning streak, eight by finish.  

“Nunes is currently a -280 favorite, though she was a -1000 favorite the last time these two met in the octagon.  Peña is currently a +210 underdog, compared to +600 when the pair met at UFC 269.  So while Nunes is still favored, it's safe to say Peña has won some respect from our bookmakers,” says Barry Barger, senior betting analyst for BetUS.  

“But even more than our bookmakers, Peña has won the respect of bettors.  So far 80 percent of the tickets (bets) we’ve taken are backing Peña - and an incredible 95% of the dollar volume.  Early one-sided action like this is often an indicator of how ‘sharp’ bettors are betting,” Barger adds.

BetUS betting analysts, including Barry Barger are available on short notice for additional commentary or interview.
