Lerone Murphy vs Douglas Silva de Andrade Betting Odds

Betting predictions for UFC Fight Island 8 on Yas Island will feature featherweights Lerone Murphy vs Douglas Silva de Andrade on January 20, 2021.

Andrade’s UFC career has been rocky recently, going 3-2 in his previous five fights. He’s coming off a win against Renan Barao, but that was back in November 2019. Since then, he hasn’t fought, so, naturally, MMA betting sites in NJ favor Murphy.

UFC betting predictions and online sports betting sites in New Jersey are backing Murphy to beat Andrade mainly due to the Brazilian’s inactivity.

This will also be Andrade’s first fight since sustaining an injury following his bout with Barao. Andrade’s form was already unstable before his injury, so it’s tough to predict how he’ll look in his return against Murphy.

Murphy’s MMA career has been great thus far, as he’s compiled an undefeated 9-0-1 record. He received a draw in his first UFC fight (which he probably should’ve won) and is coming off a fight where he mauled Ricardo Ramos in the 1st round to earn his first UFC win. Since re-signing with UFC, he’s been eager to establish himself as a real featherweight contender further, and he’s in a prime smash spot against Andrade.

Online sportsbook reviews in NJ detail the top oddsmakers, but BetMGM is where you want to bet for this one. BetMGM lists Murphy as a -286 favorite and Andrade at +230.

Sportsbooks are offering great value for Andrade, and he’s really not a bad betting pick. He’s a good fighter, but I’m wary about going with him against Murphy because he’s coming back from an injury, and he’s been away from the octagon for over a year.

Murphy’s odds aren’t particularly attractive, but I have a strong feeling he’ll make a statement in this bout. He’ll KO/TKO Andrade in the 2nd round.

My Prediction for Lerone Murphy vs Douglas Silva de Andrade

Douglas Silva de Andrade is a scrappy fighter but a recent injury and inactivity for the past year make him a sketchy betting choice. Murphy is fresh off a KO victory, and I think he adds racks up another one against Andrade.

My prediction: Murphy KO/TKO in the 2nd round.
