The biggest MMA event of 2017 will be taking place in November, and Intertops members can already place their bet on UFC 217 online!
For the first time in nearly four years, George St. Pierre will be stepping back into the UFC Octagon in a move up in weight to challenge current middleweight champion Michael Bisping. It’s a fight that fans and analysts are torn on, as there are a number of factors that could determine which fighter comes out on top.
GSP is considered to be one of the greatest champions in MMA history. He reigned as the 170 pound champion from 2007 to 2013 against the top fighters in the sport.
Micheal Bisping is one of the most experienced fighters in the UFC and seems to have truly come into his own since becoming champion. He’s riding a five-fight win streak heading into this bout and is the much bigger man. So which fighter is the betting favorite according to online sportsbooks in the US?
St. Pierre vs. Bisping betting odds
As we mentioned before, both these fighters have attributes that give them advantages heading into this fight, yet sites like Intertops Sportsbook lists St. Pierre as the betting favorite.
The one chink in Bisping’s armor seems to be his lack of wrestling defense, which coincidentally is GSP’s greatest strength. For this reason he’s likely the safer option to bet on UFC 217 online with current odds of 1.66. Bisping is bigger and may possess the striking advantage, yet enters as the MMA underdog with odds of 2.20.
