UFC 291 takes place this Saturday, July 29th in Salt Lake City, Utah beginning at 5:30 PM CST for the early prelims with the main PPV card starting at 9:00 PM CST. You will need an ESPN+ subscription to tune in and will additionally need to pay for the PPV separately as the cost is unfortunately not included with your subscription. It is going to be an amazing card and below I will give my predictions. This article for this week is different from my usual as I will only be giving the odds and my pick for the fights without my usual analysis. The reason for this is that my detailed breakdowns and analysis will be provided on the Bettor in Green YouTube for this card with the video being linked on this post when the video releases this Friday. It will be worth tuning in as I give quality analysis and reasoning behind these picks while having fun with the guys on the show. Thank you as always for the support and reading, let's dive in.
