Top Betting Tips for UFC 267 – Blachowicz vs. Teixeira and More

| October 27, 2021 1:18 pm PST

If you’re looking for the best bets to place on UFC 267, I have a few that are worth a look.

The action is scheduled for Saturday, October 30 from Abu Dhabi. It’s the first time we have had a major event in the United Arab Emirates since Conor McGregor was knocked out by Dustin Poirier in January, and the excitement is palpable.

With a ton of awesome matchups to bet on in the UFC this weekend, bettors will be looking to make some money on the event. I’ve chosen the fights I believe stand out from the rest with a couple of wagers to look at for each one. 

Keep reading for my top betting picks for UFC 267.

Jan Blachowicz vs. Glover Teixeira

  • Blachowicz to Win -300
  • Blachowicz to Win by KO/TKO -105

The UFC light heavyweight championship rests on the result of this bout. 

As you can see from my recommended UFC 267 bets for Blachowicz vs. Teixeira, I believe the belt will be going home with the Pole. Not only will the champ retain his title, but I believe he will get it done inside the distance. 

Here’s a look at Blachowicz’s KO/TKOs in the UFC so far.

Dominick Reyes 2 UFC 253 September 27, 2020
Corey Anderson 1 UFC Fight Night: Anderson vs. Błachowicz 2 February 15, 2020
Luke Rockhold 2 UFC 239 July 6, 2019
Ilir Latifi 1 UFC Fight Night: Nelson vs. Story October 4, 2014

The UFC 267 odds for Blachowicz to win are -300 with BetUS at the time of writing.

While those odds are far from stunningly attractive, they’re not terrible. In most areas, you have to give the titlist the edge over the challenger and I believe he will get the job done whether it’s by stoppage or on the cards.

If you’re looking for better odds, don’t look past Blachowicz by KO/TKO which deserves to be among my recommended picks for UFC 267 based on the price alone.

Naturally, if you go for the bigger odds, you’re taking a bigger risk. So, make sure you read my betting preview of the fight to understand why I believe it makes sense. 

Petr Yan vs. Cory Sandhagen

  • Yan to Win -280
  • Fight to End Over 3.5 Rounds -187

As I explained in my predictions for all fights at UFC 267, Yan is just a class apart. 

But like Blachowicz, he is not exactly regarded as being a vicious knockout artist despite possessing the power to end a fight.

We saw him stop both Uriah Faber and Jose Aldo en route to claiming the world title and would have likely done the same to Aljamain Sterling if “The Funkmaster” hadn’t eaten that illegal knee. 

Sandhagen is a completely different fighter from those three and will pose problems to Yan. Still, I’m not sure he will find it easy to adapt to the Russian’s intimidating pressure style and will find himself in a few precarious positions as the fight goes on. 

Yan to win is one of the best picks for Abu Dhabi. At the same time, the odds won’t be for everyone. 

To get your hands on a better price if you’re looking to wager on this fight, you will need to discover some of the prop markets available. Yan by stoppage is decent enough, but with the chance that “The Sandman” could keep his record of never being stopped intact, playing it safe should be the way to go.

By that accord, one of the best UFC 267 betting tips is to back Yan vs. Sandhagen to go over the 3.5 Round mark. This bet pays out providing the fight passes that marker and regardless of who wins, if the fight ends by stoppage, or if it goes to the cards.

A smart wager. Especially as four out of Yan’s last five have ended over the halfway point of the third round.

And, let’s be honest, he’s hardly an old version of Frankie Edgar.

Magomed Ankalaev vs. Volkan Oezdemir

  • Ankalaev to Win -310
  • Fight to End Over 1.5 Rounds -175

Safe bets for UFC fights this weekend don’t get more appealing than Ankalaev to win.

Sure, there is no such thing as a sure thing. But the Dagestani comes to mind first when thinking of UFC 267 locks. 

At 15-1 with nine KO/TKOs, the 29-year-old has enjoyed sublime form since turning pro in January 2014. The only hiccup of his career so far was an unlikely submission loss to Scotland’s Paul Craig in March 2018 but he has come back arguably a better fighter with lessons learned from that defeat. 

While Oezdemir is no joke, his record of 2-4 from his last six gives a lot away. That record should arguably be 1-5, with a sizeable portion of the UFC fanbase disagreeing with his split decision win over Aleksandar Rakic in December 2019.

If you’re putting together a list of the top betting tips for UFC 267, take Ankalaev to win for the safer option. If you’re looking to be a bit more ambitious, the fight to end over 1.5 rounds pays out pretty well.
