Blaydes is coming off a unanimous decision victory over Alexander Volkov in June and has won four in a row since his second loss to Ngannou in 2018. Lewis has strung together a few wins in a row as well, most recently <a href=”https://fansided.com/2020/08/08/ufc-vegas-6-derrick-lewis-vs-aleksei-oleinik-recap/”>defeating Aleksei Oleinik via second-round TKO</a>. Lewis also holds the record for most knockouts in UFC heavyweight history with 11.</p><p>While not usually the norm, the biggest betting favorite at UFC Vegas 19 will be a headliner in Blaydes. Blaydes is currently sitting at a whopping -450, with the other half of the main event in Lewis comes back at +325. The line for Blaydes to win via KO, TKO or DQ is now at -134, with the over/under sitting at 1.5 rounds.</p><p><a href=”https://www.actionnetwork.com”>Find your betting odds at the Action Network</a></p><p>For those unfamiliar with betting odds, they are easiest understood by assuming each bet is $100. For example, if a bettor chooses Blaydes at -450, that means a $450 bet would return $100 if he wins. On the flip side, if one were to bet Lewis at +325, a $100 bet would be needed in order to win $325 should Lewis come away victorious.</p><p>Betting odds are courtesy of Bovada.
