Jon Jones vs. Dominick Reyes Betting Picks

Jon Jones returns to the octagon on Saturday night, where he looks to defend his light heavyweight championship against Dominick Reyes.

Jones is 25-1 (1) in his MMA career, with his last loss coming back in 2009 on “The Ultimate Fighter” finale. Over the last decade, Jones has cemented himself as one of the best fighters in the world. His power, speed and size consistently make him a favourite on UFC odds. It is no different on Saturday, as he is a heavy favourite on UFC 247 betting odds.

Jones is our pick to win on Saturday against Reyes. Jones’ reach advantage should help him control the fight and keep Reyes as a distance. Jones should also use his pure strength and speed to bluster Reyes with plenty of significant strikes.

Even if the game goes to the ground, Reyes will still have a hard time getting Jones into a position to submit him.

Pick: Jon Jones (-395) to win at UFC 247

Valentina Shevchenko vs. Katlyn Chookagian Betting Picks

The co-main event at UFC 247 sees current women’s flyweight champion, Valentina Shevchenko, defend her belt against Katlyn Chookagian. Valentina opens as the biggest favourite of the night over Chookagian at -910 UFC odds.

There is not much of a reason to bet against Valentina. Valentina is undefeated since returning to the flyweight weight class (4-0), which includes winning the flyweight title and two successful defences.

Valentina is highly skilled at Muay Thai and kickboxing, which gives her the right mix of skills against a fighter like Chookagian and makes her our pick to win on Saturday night.

Pick: Valentina Shevchenko (-910) to win a UFC 247
