Best prop bets for UFC 265

MMA Bets



We are back for another exciting weekend of combat sports for UFC 265 in Las Vegas. We have a nice PPV offering this week and I had my eye on a few props to attack this week. There are a couple spots that I feel good about in the props market but be sure to check out the rest of the FTN crew’s bets FTN Bets Tracker in case we add anything prior to fight night.

As always, I will give the bets that I have placed below based on where I see the most value in the betting odds and how I see each fight matchup playing out. Feel free to hit me up on Twitter or in the MMA betting Discord with any questions that you have leading up until fight night on Saturday. Here is a look at my favorite betting props for this weekend’s UFC 264 betting card.

Johnny Munoz to win by submission

(+250, FanDuel Sportsbook)

Munoz is a legitimately dangerous submission grappler and black belt. He also has good wrestling to back up his grappling and this matchup against Jamey Simmons sets up well for him. Simmons is comfortable going to the ground and he is going to be at a significant disadvantage when the fight gets there. Munoz should have plenty of opportunities to find a submission at a noticeably higher clip than the current line suggests.

Manel Kape vs. Ode Osbourne fight does NOT start Round 3

(+136, FanDuel Sportsbook)

Both fighters have finishing potential in this matchup, and we are getting plus money for the fight to end inside the first two rounds. Ode Osbourne’s last seven fights have ended inside the first round and has only had two fights reach the third round. Additionally, Kape has 14 of his 15 wins that have come inside the distance which makes this a no-brainer as I am expecting fireworks for as long as it lasts. 

Casey Kenney to win by decision

(+175, FanDuel Sportsbook)

The Kenney decision prop is one of my favorite bets of the week. Kenney is no stranger to cashing decision prop tickets for us in the past, and this week should hopefully be no different. He is facing Song Yadong, who I respect as a fighter, but Kenney should edge it out as he is the more active striker to go along with a significant wrestling and grappling edge.
