Betting on the UFC has proven to be very popular with sports bettors, as a thorough knowledge of the sport can give a person an advantage over the bookmakers, especially when it comes to preliminary card fights. A gambler with a thorough knowledge of preliminary card fighters can use this information to exploit some pretty wildly priced lines.

There are multiple ways that people can bet on the UFC, including outright winner, round betting and method of finish props.

Lines can move wildly shortly after a fight is announced and during the time between weigh-ins and when the fight takes place. In addition, a fighter's popularity can dramatically swing a line, as evidenced by the tremendous amount of wagering that takes place on every Conor McGregor fight. These are all things to keep in mind when you look to place your bets.


UFC on ESPN+: Alistair Overeem vs Aleksei Oleinik

The UFC's second visit to Russia will take place on Saturday, April 20th at the Yubileyny Sports Palace in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The event, which will be the company's 149th Fight Night card in its history, will see Alistair Overeem square off against Aleksei Oleinik in an interesting Heavyweight battle.

The co-main event will see Islam Makhachev take on Arman Tsarukyan.

Alistair Overeem is looking to build off of the momentum that he gained after beating Sergey Pavlovich in China last year. Prior to that, Overeem had dropped two fights in a row (against Curtis Blaydes and Francis Ngannou) and was in danger of possibly being released from the UFC.

Overeem was originally slated to take on Alexander Volkov, though Volkov was forced to remove himself, leading to Oleinik taking his spot.

Oleinik is certainly no pushover, as he is in the midst of a two-fight winning streak that includes wins over Mark Hunt and Junior Albini.

Overeem is the favourite to win this fight - let's look at the betting odds as of this moment, courtesy of Bet365:
