Name: Warlley Alves

Opponent: Kamaru Usman

Odds: +186 (bet $100 to win $186)

Wow, how short the attention span is of oddsmakers. You may be hot for your whole career, but lose once and they forget what a great fighter you were. This is totally the case for Warlley Alves, who steamrolled wrestling/grappling star Colby Covington and tapped him to a guillotine – giving him his first and only loss. Alves used that win to propel his win streak to 10 fights, which was then ended by prospect-killer Bryan Barberena. While that loss was likely to sting, it’s no reason to make such a talented grappler a 2-to-1 underdog in his next time out.
