Dober vs Frevola Prediction

Drew Dober has found a decent amount of success over the last few years, going 6-2 in his previous eight fights. He's currently on a three-fight winning streak, having knocked out the likes of Terrance McKinney, Rafael Alves and Bobby Green over that stretch. In fact, each of the 34-year-old's last six wins have come by KO/TKO.

Nevertheless, Matt Frevola has a decent amount of momentum behind him, too. He's knocked out Genaro Valdez and Ottman Azaitar in his last two fights and now looks to win three consecutive fights for the first time in his career.

While Frevola has been solid, I don't see an upset happening. Dober has been dealing with stiffer competition and knows how to finish an opponent. He's also never been knocked out at the UFC level. Frevola has twice, however, with the most recent occurrence happening less than two years ago.

Considering how Frevola's two KO losses came against McKinney and Polo Reyes -- two opponents that Dober has beaten -- I like the favorite getting things done.

Winner: Drew Dober

Dober vs Frevola Best Bet

Unfortunately, the moneyline is the only betting option at the moment, making a Dober outright win at -235 odds the best bet for now. Make sure to check back on FanDuel Sportsbook leading up to UFC 288 for more playable options.
