The sport of mixed martial arts continues to grow around the world, and online MMA betting in Europe is more popular than ever. Let’s take a look at a few fights you can still wager on in 2017 with Bet365 Sportsbook.
There’s no doubt MMA is more popular now than ever before. With a number of UFC champions hailing from Europe, many fans from European nations are now flocking to sports betting sites to place wagers on the outcome of fights.
Luckily for these fans, there are a number of tremendous online sportsbooks in the EU offering MMA betting odds. In this article we’ll take a look at a few major bouts that you can still bet on in 2017.
Bet on Till vs. Cerrone in Europe
On October 22nd, two of the best welterweight fighters in the world will be facing off in Gdansk, Poland. Rising prospect Darren Till is taking on the biggest challenge of his career against one of the most experienced fighters in the UFC in Donald Cerrone.
Till began his career in 2013 and has quickly racked up a 15-0-1 record with a recent dominant victory over Bojan Velickovic. He’s an extremely dangerous striker with nine knockouts to his credit but still comes into this fight as the MMA underdog with odds of 6/4.
Donald Cerrone is riding the first two-fight losing streak of his entire career heading into this fight. Donald has taken on some of the best fighters in the world during his UFC run but has yet to win a championship. A win over Till could earn him that shot. Bet365 Sportsbook lists Cerrone’s odds to beat Till at 4/7.
Bet on GSP vs. Bisping in Europe
Another one of the UK’s top fighters will be competing later this year when Michael Bisping takes on George St. Pierre in one of the biggest fights of 2017 and one of the best options for online MMA betting in Europe.
Bisping won the middleweight championship in mid-2016 and has defended his belt once. He’s one of the toughest fighters in the sport and certainly has the skills to beat GSP but enters this fight as the underdog with current odds of 11/10.
George St. Pierre enters back into MMA for the first time in more than 4 years against Bisping. Many questions remain about how he will fare at the higher weight class, but he certainly appears in shape. GSP enters this fight as the MMA favorite with current odds of 8/11.
Bet on Poirier vs. Pettis in Europe
The last option in terms of online MMA betting in Europe still available this year is on the massive lightweight bout between Dustin Poirier and Anthony Pettis taking place in November.
Dustin Poirier has found good success at 155 pounds though he’s only 1-1-1 in his past three fights. He was on his way to knocking out Eddie Alvarez back in May before an illegal knee ended the contest, and now comes into this fight against Pettis with even odds of 1/1.
Anthony Pettis is a former champion at lightweight and got back on track recently with a unanimous decision win over Jim Miller. He looked back to his old self in that fight and now enters as this fight as the favorite with current odds of 4/5 to make EU gambling news
with the victory.
