UFC 246 McGregor vs. Cerrone Betting Picks
After taking all of 2019 off from fighting, Conor McGregor returns to the UFC to take on Donald Cerrone at UFC 246. McGregor opens as the favourite, with the betting line continuing to move as more bets go on McGregor to win.
McGregor lost his only UFC fight in the last three years, losing by submission to Knabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229. The time off could help McGregor, as it has helped fighters such as George St. Pierre re-energize and rediscover their motivation to fight.
McGregor’s opponent, Donald Cerrone, is not the best fighter he has ever faced. Cerrone is coming off a hectic year in the UFC, with his fight at UFC 246, being his fifth since January 19, 2019. Cerrone lost his last two bouts and owns just a 4-6 record since the start of 2017.
Overall, betting on Conor McGregor as a favourite has proved profitable in the past. Continuing that trend in 2020 is the best strategy at UFC 246. McGregor’s striking abilities will help him against Cerrone, who has lost four matches since 2017 due to TKO.
Pick: Conor McGregor (-235) to Win at UFC 246
UFC 246 Prop Bets
There are some UFC 246 prop bets open on the event. Here a few of the best to bet.
- Over 2.5 +150
- Under 2.5 -190
Early in McGregor’s career, the over/under rounds in his fights were consistently ending under 2.5 rounds. However, his fights are lasting longer, with two of his last four fights going into at least the fourth round.
Cerrone’s fights tend to end under 2.5 rounds, although he is rarely slated in five-round contests. In his last two five-round matches (both featuring Cerrone in the main event), one went the distance, while the other ended in the first round.
It is toss-up between the two betting options, but the value is much better on the over, making it a better betting option at UFC 246.
Pick: Over 2.5 Rounds (+150)
Method of Victory
One hedge bet to make is for Cerrone to win by submission, Cerrone’s fighting style is based around submitting opponents. McGregor lost his last fight to Khabib by submission. At +600, a small wager on this bet offers some return in case McGregor is upset at UFC 246.
Pick: Cerrone to Win by Submission (+600)
