Fight. Island. Is. Here. Thank you, Dana White!

UFC 251 takes place this Saturday at “Fight Island,” and with such a loaded card, the sportsbooks are fighting it out themselves. But instead of throwing fists, feet, knees and elbows, they’re throwing promotions at bettors around the country!

DraftKings, for example, is letting new users bet either side of the Usman vs. Masvidal main event at +500 odds!

Check out the details below:

DraftKings Sportsbook

Offer: Get +500 Odds on Either Side of the Usman/Masvidal Main Event

  • Available States: Colorado
  • Who’s it for? New users

Coloradoans can get +500 odds on either fighter in the UFC 251 main event — Usman or Masvidal — by signing up through this link and opting in to the promo on DK’s homepage.

The max bet is $20, meaning if you bet the fighter who ends up winning, you’ll walk away with a clean $100.

Statistically speaking, the smarter choice is to bet on Usman.

  • Usman normal odds: -265 (72.62% chance to win)
  • Masvidal normal odds: +225 (30.77% chance to win)
  • +500 odds: 16.67% implied probability

By taking Usman with this promotion, you’d get nearly a 56% edge over his normal odds compared to about 14% for Masvidal.

You’d typically only win $7.54 on a $20 Usman bet, which means this could net you an additional $92.46! To win $100, you’d need to bet $265 — a potentially disastrous loss if there’s an upset.

Not sure about you guys, but this sounds like a good bet to me.
