    One of UFC's top pound-for-pound fighters will look to stay unbeaten at 145 pounds when featherweight champion Alexander Vokanovski battles interim champ Yair Rodriguez in Saturday's UFC 290 main event. The main UFC 290 fight card will get underway at 10 p.m. ET at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Volkanovski is a -370 favorite (risk $370 to win $100), while Rodriguez comes back at +290 in the latest UFC 290: Volkanovski vs. Rodriguez odds from Caesars Sportsbook.

    Before making any UFC 290: Volkanovski vs. Rodriguez picks of your own, you NEED to see the latest MMA predictions from SportsLine MMA analyst Kyle Marley. Over the past three-plus years, $100 bettors who have followed Marley's picks are up nearly $11,000

    The accomplished MMA analyst has provided consistent winners for SportsLine members for the past four years. His accomplishments include hitting five consecutive main-event underdog winners in 2020 following the UFC's brief pause in action because of the pandemic. Anyone who has followed Marley is WAY UP!

    Although Volkanovski, 34, is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Islam Makhachev this past February for the 155-pound lightweight championship, he has never lost a fight in the UFC at 145. His only losses have come at the lightweight and welterweight divisions. He is 10-0 at 145, winning seven of those by decision. 

    Rodriguez, 30, is the interim UFC featherweight champion after winning by submission in the second round over Josh Emmett at UFC 284 in February. He has a 16-3 record with one no contest as a pro, including 10-2 with one no-contest in UFC. Rodriguez has won six bouts by knockout and three by submission.   

    This week at UFC 290, we can tell you Marley is backing Jalin Turner (-280) to outlast Dan Hooker (+230) in a battle of lightweight contenders.

    Marley also has strong picks for Volkanovski vs. Rodriguez, and every other bout on the UFC 290 card. He's also backing a fighter who has "a big edge on the ground" to emerge with a DOMINANT victory! You MUST see his UFC 290: Volkanovski vs. Rodriguez picks before making any of your own.
