Silva vs Adesanya Best Prop Bet

- Israel Adesanya Win by Points (+200) – Adesanya is undefeated and has the advantage in height and reach, but Silva should be fresh coming off a year-long break. This could provide motivation for Silva, and a reason for him to try and be tactical, which could lead to a slower fight. Silva might make some noise and go the distance, but ultimately might not have enough to get the win.
