UFC 224 preview, picks: An exciting card with appetizing betting opportunities

It’s easy for fans and sports bettors to overlook UFC 224 while looking forward toward CM Punk’s redemption fight at UFC 225, the champion vs. champion match-up at UFC 226 or the rumored Georges St-Pierre vs. Nate Diaz bout at UFC 227.

That’d be a mistake.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is getting an exciting fight card with interesting options for gamblers looking to parlay prelim fights with main card bouts. The real money on this card will be made by betting on stoppages, decisions or the over-under on rounds; not on digging to find underdogs to drop money on. 

Let’s start with the card’s main event women’s bantamweight title fight between Amanda Nunes (-1400) and Racquel Pennington (+800). Pennington enters UFC 224 on a four-fight winning streak, with her last loss coming by split decision to former bantamweight champion and current featherweight contender Holly Holm.
