*All odds as of June 10
Shevchenko vs Santos Under 3.5 Rounds
Valentina Shevchenko is coming off back-to-back TKO wins which happen in the fourth and second round, but this matchup against Taila Santos is the perfect one to take the under 3.5 as many think this fight will go the distance.
Entering the fight, many pundits have said Santos will be Shevchenko’s toughest test in quite some time and some actually believe the Brazilian can win. The last time people thought someone was a tough matchup for Shevchenko was Jessica Andrade and Shevchenko put on a clinic and went for the finish from the get-go and got the second round TKO here.
Shevchenko will just land heavy shots and mix in the grappling and eventually get the ground and pound TKO in the second or third round. As well, the only way Santos wins is by catching Shevchenko early so you also benefit from that scenario in case that happens.
Pick: Shevchenko-Santos Under 3.5 Rounds (+135)
UFC 275 Props – To Go the Distance Odds
|Matchup||Yes Odds||No Odds|
|Teixeira vs Prochazka||+330||-500|
|Shevchenko vs Santos||-120||-110|
|Zhang vs Jedrzejczyk||-225||+165|
|Fialho vs Matthews||+140||-190|
|Della Maddalena vs Emeev||-175||+130|
Della Maddalena-Emeev Goes the Distance
Opening up the main card is a welterweight clash between highly-touted prospect Jack Della Maddalena against Ramazan Emeev.
Della Maddalena is a great striker and if he wins, it seems likely he will just stick and move and land the better shots and win a decision that way, similar to what he did on the Contender Series. Along with that, Emeev hasn’t been finished since 2014.
If Emeev is going to win this fight, he will win his usual way which is pushing Della Maddalena up against the fence and grinding out a win that way. The Russian has the capability to make this one boring, but regardless of who wins, the fight going the distance is the way to go here as I lined it -215 myself.
Pick: Della Maddalena-Emeev Goes The Distance (-175)

Prochazka Wins by KO/TKO/DQ
In the main event, you saw in the preview I’m taking Jiri Prochazka to win, and the better way to get value instead of laying -200, taking the Prochazka by KO/TKO/DQ prop at -135 is the way to go.
If Prochazka is going to win it will be KO as out of his 28 wins, 25 have come by KO/TKO as he has insane power and we have seen Teixiera get knocked out before. He has been knocked out in three of his seven losses but even in his last couple of wins, he has been dropped and rocked and Prochazka has more power than that.
I expect Prochazka to blitz Teixeira early and land big shots to finish the Brazilian and become the new champ.
Pick: Prochazka wins by KO/TKO/DQ (-135)
