Top Betting Pick for Teixeira vs Prochazka

Our top betting pick is the no decision prop bet at -600. Jiri hasn’t been tested enough in the UFC to be sure he’s ready for the title. Glover is a surprising fighter, and few can handle his grappling skill in the late rounds. His consistently underrated striking power could offer a knockout that no one sees coming. The No Decision prop pays $16.67 per $100 wager. This bet is down from -485 earlier in the week, so get your bets in now before it peaks!

Top pick for Glover Teixeira Odds and Predictions

If you’re betting on Glover consider the money line bet at +166 or his TKO/Submission prop bet finish at +255. I’d prefer the lower paying money line. If anyone takes home the decision, it will be Glover. The veteran fighter has better submission work and more upsets than any contender in the division. 

Top pick for Jiri Prochazka Odds and Predictions

The Jiri Prochazka knockout prop pays out at -165, a $60.61 payout per $100 wagered. He is a consistent knockout striker on a nine fight finishing streak. Jiri has never been one to focus on submission finishes, and his money line or decision win would be a rare for this fighter that leaves it all out there, fighting every single round as if it’s the last.

UFC Stats Glover Stats Jiri Stats
Significant Strikes Landed per Minute  3.72 7.19

Takedown Accuracy and Defensive Percentage 39%, 60% 100%, 50%

Jiri rarely uses the takedown, but look at the 6.8 strikes absorbed. Jiri’s style creates significant openings and his opponents do land shots. In two bouts, Jiri absorbed 104 significant strikes in just 15:19 of total ring time. 
Glover has a lower takedown accuracy than Jiri’s defense, but only because of the massive number of fantastic wrestlers he’s been up against. Expect Glover to secure the takedown, and that fact should affect your Teixeira vs Prochazka betting pick.

These odds have moved marginally, +5 to -15 points since Monday. We still feel the under bets and ‘goes the distance, no’ prop bets are your best choices. Jiri’s dedication to fast and furious fights will open him up to Glover’s surprise knockouts and submissions, or will crush the aging champion.

Teixeira vs Prochazka Prediction MMA Breakdown 

Prochazka is an interesting fighter. His training methodology isn’t normal, and he has the kind of supranatural self belief we see in other champs like Ronda Rousey and Connor McGreggor. Short lived, yes, but effective in their own right. 

When Prochazka is in the zone, his head movement picks up. He rarely blocks shots, and for Glover this is a boon. Glover likes to tie up to wear on fighters and punch out of clinch breaks when it’s tougher to pull off ducks in rolls like this. 

Here’s Glover baiting Bader into throwing combinations in his range. He can’t box, but he can brawl. The champion lands shots that don’t look like they’ll knock fighters out, but he finds the chin with surprising accuracy. 

We chose a bet that believes in the champion and his skill. Glover isn’t easily put away, and Jiri comes to every fight with the same strategy, a finish and a blinding pace. Teixeira may be the first man to poke holes in that approach in a long time.  

Bet the Fight Goes to Decision, NO prop bet at -600.
