UFC 303 Main Event: Pereira vs Prochazka

Jiri Prochazka Defeats Alex Pereira (+136)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

I like the value on Prochazka at (+136) odds.

What’s interesting about Prochazka is that he can be quite unpredictable with his striking, which could catch Pereira off guard.

Look for a slight upset in the main event.

UFC 303 Main Event Best Bet

Brian Ortega Defeats Diego Lopes (+120)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

Let’s target Brian Ortega to pull off the win over Diego Lopes in this featherweight fight.

Ortega has strong submission skills, which could swing the pendulum in his favor over Lopes.

Look for Ortega to make an impact on the ground to neutralize Lopes’ striking and grappling skills.

Ortega looks like a solid value at (+120) odds, making this our UFC pick of the day.

Mayra Bueno Silva Defeats Macy Chiasson (-125)

DraftKings Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 Unit

I’m going with Mayra Bueno Silva to knock off Macy Chiasson at a reasonable price of (-125) odds.

While Chiasson has the height and reach advantage, Silva’s grappling and submission skills may be the difference in this fight.

Silva has a 10-3-1 professional record, giving her a slight edge over Chiasson (9-3).

This should be a close fight, but I’m rolling with Silva here.
