Glover Teixeira vs Ryan Bader Betting Preview

Published on September 4th, 2013 4:56 pm EST
Ryan Bader will attempt to derail the Glover Teixeira hype train when the two fighters square off in the main event of UFC Fight Night: Teixeira vs Bader on Wednesday night. The event is being hosted by the Mineirinho Arena in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

Many people have claimed that Glover Teixeira has the best chance of beating Light Heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones. It is widely assumed that Teixeira will get a shot at the winner of Jones/Gustafsson with an impressive victory on Wednesday night.

Ryan Bader, on the other hand, is trying to re-establish himself as a top name in the division. There was a time when Bader was just a win away from getting a shot at the title - however, consecutive losses to Jones and Tito Ortiz pushed Bader far, far down the Light Heavyweight ladder.

Bader beat Vladimir Matyushenko in his most recent fight, while Teixeira is in the midst of a four fight winning streak since debuting in the UFC.


Teixeira is a substantial favourite to win on Wednesday night - let's look at the current betting odds:

Ryan Bader, 4.50
Glover Teixeira, 1.22

So, according to these odds, a successful $100 bet on Bader would return a total profit of $350, while a successful $100 wager on Teixeira would yield a total return of $22, if he were able to pull out the victory.

The over/under for this fight is set at 1.5 rounds:

Over 1.5 Rounds, 1.80
Under 1.5 Rounds, 2.00
