Anyone that wants to bet on MMA in Australia online should head to NetBet Sportsbook where you’ll find the best odds for all the biggest fights!
Australia has one of the most passionate MMA fan bases in the world. The country has produced a number of top fighters over the past several years, most notably Robert Whittaker, who captured the interim middleweight championship with a hard fought win over Yoel Romero.
Those that like to bet on sports in Australia will find some tremendous odds when it comes to MMA. There are some major fights scheduled to take place in 2017, so let’s take a look at some of the best ones you can wager on.
Bet on Cody Garbrandt vs. TJ Dillashaw
One of the biggest fights scheduled to take place this year is the bantamweight title matchup between Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw. These two men were scheduled to fight on July 8th at UFC 213, but a back injury forced Cody out and their next fight has not yet been scheduled. Nevertheless, it’s going to be a massive fight and those looking to bet on MMA in Australia online have a great opportunity to wager on who wins.
Garbrandt vs. Dillashaw betting odds
- Cody Garbrandt: 20/31
- TJ Dillashaw: 11/10
- Fight to end in more than 3.5 rounds: 20/43
- Fight to end in less than 3.5 rounds: 7/5
Cody Garbrandt really burst onto the scene in 2016 with three straight first-round KO victories. He earned a shot at the title against Dominick Cruz at the end of the year, and despite coming in as an underdog according to sites like NetBet Sportsbook, he dominated Cruz en route to a unanimous decision victory. Now, Garbrandt enters the fight with TJ as the slight favorite with odds of 20/31.
TJ Dillashaw had his own title reign back in 2014/15, and has rattled off two straight victories over top contenders since losing his belt. Dillashaw is extremely well-rounded, but will come into this fight the significantly smaller man. At the moment, Dillashaw’s odds to beat Garbrandt are set at 11/10.
Bet on Robert Whittaker vs. Michael Bisping
It should come as no surprise that one of the best options to bet on MMA in Australia online is on the future matchup between Robert Whittaker and Michael Bisping. Both these men hold belts at 185 pounds, and will likely face off before the end of the year as long as Robert’s knee isn’t too damaged.
Bisping is the undisputed champion at middleweight, but he’s taken a lot of heat for not defending his title against a number one contender. His last bout came against Dan Henderson at UFC 204, and since then has been on the sidelines waiting for his next opponent. He’s been inactive as of late, which is likely a reason why Bisping comes in as the betting underdog against Whittaker according to most online sportsbooks in Australia with odds of 6/4.
Whittaker has look phenomenal since moving to 185 pounds, and had his shining performance against Romero to win the interim belt. His elite striking makes him a danger for everyone, and he’s the favorite to beat Bisping with odds of 4/11.
Australian UFC fighters to watch in 2017
We’re already more than halfway through this year, but a number of exciting Australian fighters will likely compete inside the octagon before 2017 ends.
One of the brightest prospects that those looking to bet on MMA in Australia online should keep an eye on is Tai Tuivasa. The 24 year old heavyweight has finished every single professional fight he’s had, and will likely come in as the favorite by NetBet Sportsbook if matched up with a fellow prospect.
One of the most exciting young fighters in the UFC, let alone Australia, is 25 year old Tyson Pedro. He entered the UFC with a perfect 4-0 record, and has since made Australian gambling news by going 2-0 in the big leagues with two straight first round finishes. Pedro’s next fight will come against Ilir Latifi, but the odds have not yet been set.
