Betting early has advantages especially if it’s on big favourites as their prices could keep going down to unbeatable levels. Many UFC bettors “chalk” (bet on favourites) specifically on popular fighters.
However, doing so comes with plenty of risk as the weight cutting, which some fighters can have issues with, isn’t until the day before the fight. On the flipside, waiting can also be advantageous because the line may go the other way. A lot of betting happens during the day of the fight.
Observe betting trends carefully and stay tuned to learn all things UFC!
