UFC 215 Betting: Johnson vs. Borg Odds

A pair of UFC titles will be on the line this weekend as the UFC heads north of the border for UFC 215: Johnson vs. Borg in Edmonton, Alberta.

The main event on the UFC 215 card is a UFC flyweight championship bout between current champ Demetrious Johnson and challenger Ray Borg. Johnson has already successfully defended his title nine times and he’s a heavy -1000 favorite at the Bovada Sportsbook to make it 10. Borg checks in as a +600 underdog.

Johnson enters the fight with a 26-2-1 record with five wins by knockout and 10 by submission. He last fought at UFC on Fox 24 in April when he defeated Wilson Reis by submission via arm bar as a -1100 favorite. It’s been nearly six years since Johnson suffered a defeat in October 2011.

Borg is 11-2 with one win by KO and six by submission. His last fight was at UFC Fight Night 106 in March where he defeated Jussier Formiga by unanimous decision as a -140 favorite.

The UFC women’s bantamweight title will also be up for grabs at UFC 215, as champion Amanda Nunes faces Valentina Shevchenko. At the Bovada Sportsbook Shevchenko is the favorite at -135, while Nunes is a +105 underdog.

That shouldn’t faze Nunes too much, as she has been the underdog in her last four fights and she’s won them all. Overall she is 14-4 with 10 wins by KO. She last fought at UFC 207 in December and defeated Ronda Rousey by TKO in the first round as a +130 underdog.

Shevchenko is 14-2 with four wins by KO and six by submission. Her last fight was at UFC on Fox 23 in January where she defeated Julianna Pena by submission via arm bar as a -205 favorite.

The is the second time that Nunes and Shevchenko will have met up in the octagon. They previously fought at UFC 196 in March 2016. That fight was won by Nunes by unanimous decision.

Also worth a look on the UFC 215 card is a welterweight fight between Neil Magny and Rafael dos Anjos. Magny is a +160 underdog and dos Anjos is the -200 favorite.

Magny, 19-5 with six wins by KO, is 4-1 in his last five fights and last fought at UFC 207 in December where he defeated Johny Hendricks by unanimous decision.

Dos Anjos, 26-9 with five wins by KO and eight by submission, last fought at UFC Fight Night 111 in June and beat Tarec Saffiedine by unanimous decision.
