UFC 272: Rafael dos Anjos vs. Renato Moicano odds, picks and prediction

In a catch weight fight on the main card, Rafael dos Anjos and Renato Moicano meet Saturday at UFC 272 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Below, we analyze the UFC 272: Dos Anjos vs. Moicano odds and lines, with picks and predictions.

The early prelims can be viewed on ESPN+ at 6 p.m. ET, with the prelims starting at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN/ESPN+ and the main card on pay-per-view starting at 10 p.m. ET.

The southpaw dos Anjos checks into this one looking to make it two wins in a row after a split-decision victory over Paul Felder last time out in the main event Nov. 14, 2020.

Dos Anjos was supposed to face Rafael Fiziev, who was forced out after a positive COVID-19 test. Moicano took this fight on short notice.

Moicano has won three of his past four fights, each by submission, including a second-round win over Alexander Hernandez Feb. 12 at UFC 271. Moicano is going to have a lot of difficulty against a rested dos Anjos.

UFC 272 dos Anjos vs. Moicano: Odds, lines, predictions and picks

Records: dos Anjos (30-13) | Moicano (16-4-1)

Fight result (2-way line or money line)

DOS ANJOS (-180) is the play here, although he is a tad bit on the expensive side. Still, RDA is well rested, and facing a guy who just fought less than a month ago. A bout against Fiziev, a kickboxing specialist, would have been a much better test. Dos Anjos enters just 2-4 in the past six fights overall, going the distance in five of those outings. He’ll get it done here.

In addition, while Moicano is fighting on short notice, he’ll be able to hold his own here and make RDA work for this win.

Look for DOS ANJOS BY POINTS (+215) for the method of victory.

Over/Under (O/U)

Play YES: FIGHT TO GO THE DISTANCE (-105) at near even-money. Dos Anjos has just one stoppage in his past seven bouts. Moicano has ended up picking up finishes in seven straight fights, but he won’t have the same kind of energy fighting just a few weeks after his most recent outing. He’ll be looking to slow this fight down, trying to survive.
