FanDuel NY promo: Bet $5, win $150 on UFC 272
Both fighters come off losses to welterweight champion Kamaru Usman, Covington most recently in November. Masvidal, meanwhile, has not entered the octagon since his knockout loss to Usman in April 2021.
Again, though, none of this takes away from the excitement and atmosphere surrounding Saturday’s fight at T-Mobile Arena. If that weren’t enough to tune into the 170-pound showdown, this FanDuel NY Sportsbook promo certainly will.
New users in New York can sign up with FanDuel and place a max bet of $5 on either Covington or Masvidal to win this grudge match. With a 30-1 odds boost, if they win, those bettors will receive $150 in cash. Not site credit. Straight cash.
For perspective, as of Wednesday, FanDuel lists Covington as a -340 favorite. In order to win $150 on that line, bettors would need to wager $115.91.
FanDuel New York best bet: Covington or Masvidal?
Covington and Masvidal used to be training partners with American Top Team in Florida before a falling out led not only to Covington’s departure from ATT but also the friendship between the two former roommates.
As noted, the 34-year-old Covington (16-3) enters Saturday’s bout as the heavy favorite. Two of his three career losses came at the hands of Usman. The other setback occurred in 2015.
On the other side, Masvidal (35-15) hasn’t fought since April, a loss to Usman that came nine months after a similar result to the same fighter.
Interestingly, the 37-year-old Masvidal — carrying +260 odds at FanDuel — last appeared at T-Mobile in 2019. In that fight, Masvidal delivered a flying knee on Ben Askren to record the fastest knockout in UFC history of five seconds.
FanDuel set the over/under for total rounds at 4.5, with the under listed with a +122 line. Each of Covington’s last five fights have gone into the fifth round, the only instances he has gone past three rounds in his career. Similarly, Masvidal has only entered the fifth round three times in his career.
Could the fight go the distance? FanDuel has that line at -118 and favors Covington to win by points at -105.
