The 18th ranked UFC welterweight Geoff Neal (11-2-0) takes on 24th ranked Niko Price (13-2-0, 1NC) on the UFC 240 main card in Alberta, Canada on Saturday night in what is sure to be an exciting match-up.
Geoff Neal was drafted into the Ultimate Fighting Championship through Dana White’s Contender Series and having impressed there, he now boasts an unbeaten 3-0 record inside the Octagon. That sort of momentum is and confidence is tough to stop at this stage in a fighter’s career and Texas-based prospect raised eyebrows with a sensational KO of Frank Camacho at UFC 228 last September.
Despite being the first man ever to finish veteran welterweight Tim Means in his last fight, Niko Price is taking a big step up in competition just now and he will very much need to raise his game for this fight.
Geoff Neal Vs Niko Price Betting Lines & Prediction
The UFC betting lines are strongly in favour of Geoff Neal here, who is the best price of -278 (1.36) with Betway Sportsbook online.
Neal’s latest match up in January saw him despatch tough opponent Belal Muhammad by unanimous decision and this 28-year-old appears to be approaching the prime of his career to date. Further, bigger tests will surely lie ahead for the Texan, but Niko Price may just be another stepping stone and Neal is the suggested prediction on the UFC 240 betting lines, as he should just have a bit too much class here.
At UFC odds of -278 (1.36) with Betway, the betting pick is a short price for sure, but you could double, treble and parlay him up with other strong looking favourites on the UFC 240 card. Of course, we can never know what will happen in the UFC octagon, but on this card, there does seem to be a lot of very solid looking betting lines market leaders.
