  • The updated odds for UFC 249 make Tony Ferguson a big favorite to win the main event over Justin Gaethje.
  • But don't settle for betting the regular market if you're in a state with online sports betting.
  • We've compiled all of the best betting promotions for Saturday night's UFC 249 card here.

Who’s ready for some sports?! That’s right: Saturday brings us UFC 249, and anyone who lives in a state with online sports betting has plenty of ways to take advantage of some great offers that sportsbooks have posted. Here are the best ones available:

FanDuel Sportsbook

Offer: Bet Tony Ferguson at +500 Odds (Boosted from -225)

  • Claim now: Click here
  • States Available: Colorado
  • Who’s it for? New and existing FanDuel customers

Colorado just went live with sports betting last week, and all of the bettors in the Centennial State are about to find out one of the wonders of legal betting: the no-brainer odds boost.

Tony Ferguson is -225 against Justin Gaethje in the main event at most books, but FanDuel is boosting his odds to +500 for new and existing customers in Colorado! No, that is not a typo.

Ferguson’s normal odds suggest he’ll win around 69.3% of the time, but the +500 odds suggest he’ll win just 16.7% of the time, giving you a huge edge. The max bet is $20, which means a potential $100 for anyone in Colorado if the favorite can indeed get the job done.

Important note: This boosted market will appear AFTER you’ve made a deposit into your FanDuel account, so don’t be alarmed to see it not popping up immediately after registering.

Bet Tony Ferguson at +500 odds now!

DraftKings Sportsbook

Offer #1: Bet Ferguson-Gaethje Over 11 Seconds at +100

  • Claim now: Click here
  • Available states: Colorado
  • Who’s it for? New and existing customers

Coloradoans — remember the time Tim Tebow threw an 80-yard TD pass on the first play of overtime against the Steelers in the playoffs? That took just 11 seconds.

Just 11 seconds stand between you and happiness this Saturday, too.

DraftKings is offering +100 odds on the Ferguson-Gaethje fight to last longer than the Steelers’ defense did against Tebow, which means you win once 11 seconds go by.

Already signed up at DraftKings? Don’t worry. While a lot of sportsbook promotions are only for new users, both new and existing customers can take advantage of this.

This comes with a max bet of $25 and must be placed on an individual bet slip.

If you’re worried about the fight ending in less than 11 seconds, you shouldn’t be. None of the 52 combined bouts from these two fighters has ever ended that quickly.

Parx Sportsbook

Offer: Win $50 if Ferguson-Gaethje Lasts at Least One Minute

  • Claim Now: Click here
  • Available States: Pennsylvania
  • Who’s it for? New customers

Do you expect the Ferguson-Gaethje fight to last a while? Even if you don’t, you probably expect it will last longer than a minute, right?

At Parx, you’ll get a free $50 bet if Ferguson-Gaethje lasts one minute or longer. All you have to do is place a bet of at least $50 on the fight itself (excluding bets of -200 or higher) and you’ll be eligible to win the free bet. Of course, if your original bet wins, you’ll be paid out on that, too.

Just for comparison’s sake, the over/under for the fight is 2.5 rounds, with each round lasting five minutes.

None of Tony Ferguson’s 29 career fights have ended in under a minute, while only one of Gaethje’s 23 fights have (and that was eight years ago).

Clearly, the chances that this fight ends in less than 60 seconds are very low, giving anyone who takes advantage of this promo a great chance of winning $50 in free bets. Plus, the free bets only need to be rolled over one time before your winnings convert to cash.

PointsBet Sportsbook

Offer #1: The Crazy Ferguson Odds Boost

  • Bet now: Click here
  • Available states: New Jersey and Indiana
  • Who’s it for? New and existing customers

More Info: This is not the first time we’ve seen a promo like this and certainly won’t be the last. Here’s how this particular offer works.

After opening as a -135 favorite, Tony Ferguson’s price will increase for each 100 bets placed on him at PointsBet. He’s already moved to -155 as of Thursday and could end up as an underdog by the time the fight rolls around on late Saturday night.

The best part is that everyone who bets on him will be paid out based on the closing line. If you take him at -150 and he closes at +120, you’d be paid out at +120, which means there’s no point in waiting around for the odds to get better.

Lock in Ferguson at crazy boosted odds now!

Offer #2: Free $25 Bet for the Main Event

  • Claim now: Click here
  • Available states: New Jersey and Indiana
  • Who’s it for? New and existing customers

If you want some free money to play around with for the Ferguson-Gaethje fight, all you have to do is bet on one of the undercard fights and PointsBet will match your bet up to $25.

For example, if you bet $25 on Ronaldo Souza in an undercard fight, you’d get a free $25 bet to use on Ferguson-Gaethje. (In New Jersey, your free bet must be used on an in-play wager for Ferguson-Gaethje, and for those of you in Indiana, you need to use your free bet before the main event fight starts.)
