Abdurakhimov vs Almeida Prediction

Jailton Almeida is the clear-cut favorite heading into this fight and for good reason. Shamil Abdurakhimov has looked terrible lately, suffering TKO losses in each of his last three fights. Meanwhile, Almeida has rattled off 12 consecutive victories.

Almeida has finished each of his first four UFC opponents, which doesn't bode well for the knockout-prone Abdurakhimov. Considering how Almeida has also ended six of his last seven fights in the first round, I expect him to make quick work of Abdurakhimov.

Abdurakhimov vs Almeida Best Bet

There's practically no value in taking Almeida on the moneyline, so I have my eyes on the method of victory market. Again, Abdurakhimov has been knocked out in each of his last three fights, failing to make it beyond the second round in all three.

Keeping that in mind, back Almeida to defeat Abdurakhimov by KO/TKO at +200. If you're looking for more value than that, I'd also be comfortable backing Almeida to win by first-round KO/TKO at +300.

Bet: Almeida by KO/TKO (+200)
