Are you getting tired of everyone asking who you're picking for Conor vs. Khabib? Same here. Instead, check out some wild odds for the UFC 229 main event and get betting.

Barring some sort of disaster, Conor McGregor will square off with Khabib Nurmagomedov for the lightweight championship at UFC 229 on Saturday. Nurmagomedov opened at around -190 as the favourite for this bout, but that line has tightened considerably. As of Friday afternoon, Nurmagomedov was at -150 with McGregor as a +120 underdog. The total round over/under is pegged at 2.5 rounds (under -120). There are also plenty of betting options about method of victory, and round betting and those are all great if you’re into that sort of thing. But if you’re looking to get crazy, you’ve come to the right place.

Conor vs. Khabib Props and Betting Odds Predictions

Will Conor McGregor mention Proper 12 Whiskey in the Octagon (-330)

Have you been paying attention, friends? Conor McGregor has been toasting “big business” with the UFC’s head honchos for years and now word has it that the logo of his very own whiskey is going to be on the mat of the Octagon. You know how this goes. In an event this big you end up either drinking to celebrate or drinking to forget. It’s a win-win even if Mystic Mac loses for savvy bettors. Take it at -330 before it moves.

Will UFC 229 top 2.5 million pay-per-view buys (+150)

UFC pres Dana White wants you to believe this is going to be the biggest MMA event ever, but the truth is it’s lacked a little pizzazz in the lead-up. The press conference in New York was useless without any fans present and the Vegas presser didn’t even feature the two fighters in the same building at the same time. Then again, the online views for UFC 229’s pre-fight coverage are blowing up. Leaning under 2.5 million buys now, but might flip on that after the media weigh-ins.

Will either fighter lose consciousness (+200)

Tasty bit of prop right here, fight fans. McGregor fans are positively salivating for a Jose Aldo-like knockout, while Khabib backers think their man is going to maul the Irishman before finally putting him out of his misery. Personally, wouldn’t be shocked if it went to the scorecards. McGregor will tap before going out completely and it’s more likely that Conor wins by TKO (ref stoppage) than KO.

Will McGregor and Nurmagomedov touch gloves (+200)

If you haven’t noticed, these two gentlemen aren’t overly fond of each other. Hell, no.

Will either fighter miss weight (+300)

Conor doesn’t miss weight – fact. Khabib was allegedly at 166 pounds when he was talking to the media on Monday, so that shouldn’t be a difficult cut either. Stranger things have happened, but it looks like they’re on point here.

Will McGregor do a backflip inside the Octagon (+600)

Conor McGregor does backflips for no one! He struts (who’s making up these lines anyway?).

Will either fighter have a positive drug test before the fight (+1600)

Wouldn’t that be a disaster? You have to think they’re coming in clean here. Even if Conor was taking his MayMac celebrations to another level, that was a long time ago. Both of these guys are all business.

Will either fighter be fined by the UFC before the fight (+3300)

Definitely would have had a little down on this a couple months ago, but we’re running out of time now. Even if things go sideways at the weigh-ins, it’s more likely the McGregor and Nurmagomedov teams are the ones who really get into it. There’s too much at stake for Conor and Khabib.

Will both fighters be knocked out, resulting in a draw (+20000)

Can you imagine the look on Dana White’s face? His eyes would instantly turn into slot machine dollar signs. Virtually impossible, but would be basically a blank check signed to the UFC for the rematch.

Full UFC 229 card odds, including a pinata betting option that will randomly select a winner, round and method of victory for the main event paying out at +4500.
