UFC 297: Strickland vs Du Plessis Betting Markets

The main event is priced up as a close fight on the best betting apps, with Strickland a narrow favourite in some places at the time of writing. With this being a title fight, and scheduled for five rounds, it’s not a surprise to see ‘No’ odds-on in the ‘Fight to go the distance’ market. 

Dricus Du Plessis has been finishing fights for fun since joining the UFC. Since making his UFC debut in 2020, he’s had six fights and won them all, with five of those wins coming inside the distance. 

Strickland, on the other hand, has a much patchier record. This will be his 21st UFC contest in just under a decade with the promotion. He’s got a 15-5 record in the UFC, and only seven of his 20 fights to date have resulted in a stoppage. 

It’s a fascinating contest, built on what seems to be genuine bad blood between the two fighters. Those who think Strickland will retain might be best served looking at the Method of Victory market on betting apps, where he can be backed at around 4/1 to win by decision. The challenger is more likely to finish it, though being a skilled striker and submission artist makes landing on a method of victory for Du Plessis a little tougher.

UFC 297 Betting Tips

Dricus Du Plessis has looked unstoppable in the UFC, and his march up the rankings has resulted in this title fight. He has looked like a champion ever since he stepped foot in the organisation and won’t let this opportunity slip by. We fancy him to win by stoppage. You can back Du Plessis to win in the third round at 10/1 with bet365,

The UFC 297 prelims feature a couple of Canadian fighters who’ll have heavy home town support. Mike Malott is a big favourite to beat Neil Magny. He’s worth doubling up with Marc-Andre Barriault, who’s a slight underdog to beat Chris Curtis. 

Back Malott and Barriault both to win at 9/4 with Betgoodwin.
