Kamaru Usman’s The Favorite in Early Betting Line For Colby Covington Bout

Colby Covington has a ton of momentum behind him right now, and he’s coming off arguably his most impressive win to date. But, an early betting line has the UFC’s welterweight champ Kamaru Usman as the favorite for their expected fight.

Covington faced Robbie Lawler at UFC Newark, and his wrestling, pressure and striking volume ruled the day. With the decisive, decision victory, Covington is expected to challenge Usman next.

Well, a betting line is already out for the future bout, and Usman is the favorite with odds of +250. Covington, meanwhile, is the underdog with a -195.

While there’s no denying that Covington has been on a roll and then some, so has Usman. In addition, Usman took the belt from Tyron Woodley via a dominant performance this part March, who, is one of the greatest welterweights of all-time. So, the fact Usman’s the favorite here, shouldn’t be a shock.
