UFC Fight Night Odds, Trends: Bettors Backing Smith in Main Event

The second of three UFC events in an eight-day span is ready to rumble tonight, as we have an exciting card tonight in Jacksonville.

UFC Fight Night: Smith vs. Teixeira features 10 fights, including a headliner bout with two top-10 light heavyweights facing off.

No.-3 ranked Anthony Smith, who was listed at -165 earlier in the week at William Hill, is now a -185 favorite over No. 8 Glover Teixeira (+165).

Smith has been a popular bet at William Hill, as 92% of the total dollars wagered have backed him, which is the highest percentage of anyone partaking in tonight’s UFC Fight Night. Additionally, Smith has received 77% of the total number of tickets, which leads all fighters as well.
