The Bookies’ Favourite to Win the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix

Matt Mitrione was not able to pull an upset against Travis Brown so consider betting against him.

Internet gambling sites in the UK predict the best odds for Ryan Bader to win Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix at 1/1. Bader has gained the bookies’ approval from knocking out King Mo in less than 15 seconds! Check out his Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix quarterfinals fight:

When we look at the previous match, Matt Mitrione was not able to pull an upset against Travis Brown when he was the underdog. Combined this with the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix odds, we believe that Mitrione will lose the semi-final round against Bader. It’s better to bet on Mitrione (67/100) not winning the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix at all.

The Most Likely Pair to Cause an Upset

Fedor Emelianenko and Chael Sonnen both have more MMA experience than Bader by at least 10 matches. So the best online betting sites in the United Kingdom expect one of them to cause an upset in the Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix. If you agree that this could happen, the odds of Bader not becoming the outright winner are at 81/100.

Of course, Emelianenko (6/5) owns the second best Bellator Heavyweight Grand Prix odds after he TKO’d Frank Mir in the quarterfinals. If someone can pull a slight upset to win over Bader, it’s Emelianenko.

On the other hand, Chael Sonnen (6/1) is the prime underdog in this competition. Yet, Sonnen caused the biggest upset in the quarterfinals by defeating Quinton Rampage Jackson. It’s hard for Sonnen to win the finals, but not impossible. We’ll see how everything unfolds in the next rounds. In the meantime, go ahead and place your bet at 1xBet Sportsbook!
