As the light heavyweight top contender, Alexander Gustafsson (pictured) is expected to beat Anthony Johnson Saturday to advance to a rematch with UFC champion Jon Jones.
However, I’m not sure he should be expected to win at a -280 line. While that seems a tad high for me, that’s what Gustafsson is currently pegged at.
Johnson, meanwhile, checks in as slightly more than a 2-1 underdog against “The Mauler.”
I’m not saying Johnson will win, but there seems to be great value in “Rumble” at those odds.
Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Sweden hosts the festivities.
Here are the available wagering lines for Saturday’s fights:
