One of the biggest UFC events of the year takes place on Saturday, February 17 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. UFC 298, starting at 23.00 CET, features the highly anticipated main event match between Alexander Volkanovski and Ilia Topuria for the UFC Featherweight Championship.

The UFC 298 odds from official partner Stake.com show a favouritism for the current champ (VOL -112 - TOP +103), based on the fact that Volk seems undefeated when it comes to the Featherweight division.

UFC 298: Betting Preview

⏩ Let's start with the defending champion and favourite of this bout, according to bookmakers. Alexander "The Great" Volkanovski  (13-2 in UFC career) looks forward to dominating a Featherweight rival once again and walking out of this title fight as still the UFC Featherweight Champion.

The #3 pound-for-pound fighter in UFC has won four UFC Featherweight Championship fights by decision and two by TKO against prominent opponents like Max Holloway and Yair Rodriguez (Volkanovski to win by decision at +240 odds @Stake.com).

⏩ As for the challenger and "next big thing" according to many pundits, Ilia Topuria is undefeated in the promotion (6-0 in UFC career). Among others, he will try to keep his streak intact, winning the title in the process.

The #3 fighter in Featherweights is riding an exciting 6-fight undefeated streak, having won 3 of them by KO and 2 by submission, unlike the previous battle against Josh Emmett that went all the distance (Topuria to win by KO or Submission at +190 odds @Stake.com).

⚡ For a reputable bout like this, players can find a lot of extra betting options, too. Stake.com has given out odds for Volkanovski vs Topuria on markets like Asian Total regarding rounds (Over 3.5 -127 - Under 3.5 -101) and whether The Fight Will Go The Distance (Yes +133 - No -164).

Before the main event, two interesting fights are featured, with the #3 in Middleweight Robert Whittaker going against the #6 Paulo Costa (WHI -217 - COS +200), while Merab Dvalishvili takes on Henry Cejudo (DVA -236 - CEJ +235).

Stake.com is a name that undoubtedly comes to mind in discussions about crypto gambling. The brand originates from the people behind Primedice, one of the first pure crypto gambling sites. I really appreciate their in-house sportsbook, as it offers a wide variety of sports events and quite competitive odds on several markets. It is a welcome change of pace from the hundreds of white-label bookies. Furthermore, crypto-only payments work smoothly and are a huge plus for players who prefer betting under the radar. Just remember to monitor the current crypto market trends, as you are not protected against the infamous crypto volatility. Nonetheless, I would like to see some upgrades in certain areas. Features like Bet-Builder and Partial/Auto Cash Out are a must nowadays. Also, a few more sports promotions would be a good addition. In any case, Stake is on a good path, and I believe that every bettor familiar with cryptocurrencies should try them out.
