Alves vs Dalby Prediction

After a 4-0 start to his UFC tenure, Warlley Alves has struggled to find consistency. He's 4-5 in his last nine fights, having not picked up more than two consecutive victories over that stretch. After getting knocked out by Jeremiah Wells in his last outing, Alves hopes to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time since 2016.

Meanwhile, Nicolas Dalby is 6-1 with two no-contests in his last nine fights. He picked up a unanimous decision victory over Claudio Silva in his last fight, marking the fourth time in his last five outings that he's been forced to go the distance.

Although the odds are fairly close, I'm going with the underdog in this one. Alves just can't be trusted after being finished by his opponents in three of his last five fights, losing twice by knockout and once by submission. At the same time, Dalby has never been finished in his career and should be able to pull off the upset.

Alves vs Dalby Best Bet

With his status as the underdog, there's some decent value (+102 odds) when it comes to going with Dalby on the moneyline.

If you're looking to get more value than that, feel free to go with Dalby to win by points at +270. He enjoys a longer fight, going the distance in 14 of his 27 career bouts with a 10-4 record. Furthermore, he hasn't finished an opponent since March 2019.

Bet: Dalby Outright (+102) or by Points (+270)
