3. Edwards vs Covington Betting Predictions
When making Leon Edwards vs Colby Covington betting tips, you must always analyse the record of both fighters. Edwards is undefeated in the octagon since 2015 and comes into this contest on the back of a double victory over Kamaru Usman. Interestingly, the only defeat in Edwards’ 15 most recent UFC fights came against Usman in December 2015 but the British man has since put that behind him by beating Usman twice in recent times.
Some of the other standout victories for Edwards includes a unanimous decision win over Donald Cerrone and a unanimous decision victory over Nate Diaz in June 2021. There is no doubt Edwards is in form and he is on a 12-fight unbeaten streak in the UFC. This fight gives him the opportunity to silence any doubters and firmly cement his place at the top of the welterweight division.
UFC 296: Edwards vs Covington Best Bookmakers
Covington comes into this fight on the back of a unanimous decision win in the fight of the night against Jorge Masvidal in UFC 272. This was back in March 2022, so the American has not been in the octagon competitively for well over a year. Covington’s previous contest was against Kamaru Usman in November 2021 and he lost the fight and the UFC welterweight championship by unanimous decision.
In fact, Covington has lost twice to Usman in his last four fights, while Edwards has recently defeated Usman twice. It is a big ask for Covington to step into the octagon after over a year out and beat Edwards. Therefore, our Leon Edwards vs Colby Covington prediction is for Edwards to win the fight at 3/4 with Unibet. Our other Leon Edwards vs Colby Covington betting picks include Edwards to win by unanimous decision, meaning the fight will go all the way.
