UFC on Fuel TV Odds
OMAHA, NE (TheSpread) – The UFC puts on its first live main card on Fuel TV this Wednesday night with a welterweight showdown as its main event.
UFC on Fuel TV will take place from the Omaha Civic Auditorium at 8PM ET with a main event featured Jake Ellenberger (26-5) taking on Diego Sanchez (25-4). Oddsmakers see Ellenberger is the favorite to win the contest, as he has a money line of -345 to win while Sanchez has odds of +275 to pull off the victory. Both fighters have had recent success, but Sanchez is coming off an injury and hasn’t competed in a while. Ellenberger is a powerful striker with good grappling ability while Sanchez is a grappler that will slug it out, but lacks a lot of knockout power. One thing Sanchez does have is a good chin, which may allow him to steal a win late in the fight.
The co-main event of Wednesday’s card features heavyweights Stefan Struve (22-5) taking on Dave Herman (21-2). Oddsmakers see Herman as the slight favorite with a money line of -150 while Struve comes in with odds of +120 to win. Herman is 1-0 in the UFC and a winner of his last three fights. He will have a striking edge on Struve, but Struve is a submission specialist due to his long legs. Standing close to 7 feet tall, Struve uses his size to have an active guard that has allowed him to win 15 fights by submission.
