DraftKings Sportsbook Odds/Predictions

Collier: -450
Barnett: +360

Splits: 74% of handle, 72% of bets on Collier

Collier’s 13-7 record is a little misleading because he should have gotten the decision in April over Andrei Arlovski. Here is a chance to get back on track against Barnett (22-8), a fighter with one-punch power, but not much else to challenge Collier. This is the type of fight that Collier could just use his skill and win by a comfortable decision, but “The Prototype” is going to want a finish Saturday and he’ll get it by submission in the second round.
