The women's featherweight championship is on the line Saturday as champion Amanda Nunes defends her title against Felicia Spender at UFC 250 in Las Vegas. Nunes is a -650 favorite (risk $650 to win $100) while Spencer is listed at +475 (risk $100 to win $475) in the latest odds from William Hill. The main card starts at 10 p.m. ET. Before you make any UFC 250 picks of your own, you NEED to hear what MMA expert Brandon Wise has to say.
A CBS Sports editor specializing in MMA, Wise has been dissecting the sport for five years. He specializes in picking main-card fights for UFC, which has enabled him to be profitable every year! Wise went a perfect 5-0 at UFC 239 and was 4-1 at both UFC 245 and UFC 249. He also nailed Khabib Nurmagomedov's destruction of Conor McGregor in 2018, Stipe Miocic's upset of Daniel Cormier, Max Holloway's downfall in 2019 and Justin Gaethje's TKO victory over Tony Ferguson in May.
Across UFC 247, UFC 248 and UFC 249, Wise went a whopping 11-4 with his main-card picks, returning healthy profits for anyone following them. He also called Gilbert Burns' big upset over Tyron Woodley, who was the -175 favorite, at UFC Fight Night: Woodley vs. Burns this past Saturday.
Both fighters have performed well lately as they seek a spot in the UFC's top-15 rankings. The 32-year-old Magny (22-8) didn't let an almost 16-month layoff due to an anti-doping violation of which he ultimately was cleared affect him, as he came out on the right side of a unanimous decision against Li Jingliang on March 7 for his third victory in four fights.
For UFC 250, we can tell you Wise is backing Sean O'Malley (-575) to defeat Eddie Wineland (+425) in a bantamweight bout. He's also backing a fighter who has a "better all-around game to get scorecards in his favor." You ABSOLUTELY need to see Wise's selections before making your picks.
