Paul Craig vs Gadzhimurad Antigulov Betting Odds

This is a pick ‘em fight with both fighters listed at the same odds to win among 888sport, Fanduel and Sugarhouse who list the fighters at -111, -108, and -112 respectively. The same story unfolds when looking at other sportsbooks who either have the fighters on the same odds or close to it. If there’s one safe bet in this fight it’s the fight to end by submission bet as both fighters have finished their opponents via submission in a combined 81% of their fights. Check our list of legal sports betting in NJ to see which sportsbook has this option.

With both fighters possessing serious ground games, I think this will turn out to be a very measured fight with neither fighter taking big chances. Both fighters are submission specialists and I don’t see this fight going any other way other than ending by a sub.

My Prediction For Paul Craig vs Gadzhimurad Antigulov

Craig is the more well-rounded fighter and uses his other weapons to set up his submission. Antigulov meanwhile is a bit one -dimensional and has shown in past fights that he struggles against fighters with a higher caliber of striking. Craig will also have a six inch reach advantage which Antigulov will struggle to get past.

My prediction is Paul Craig ending this fight early via submission.
