Easy money

You won’t get any closer to a sure thing than Nicky Ryan in the match against Tony Ramos. This is Ramos’s first competitive submission grappling match, and Ryan has been training with and competing against some of the best in the sport for years. Ryan is a massive favorite at -800, and those odds may be too modest.

Value bets

Dante Leon will be one of the toughest challenges in Kody Steele’s early career. Leon is the favorite by only a small margin of -170, but it would be a major upset if the rookie black belt, Steele, beat the ADCC veteran.

Luiza Monteiro is a +110 underdog against Nathalie Ribeiro despite being the more decorated of the two. It’s true, Ribeiro has been on a tear recently, and Monteiro has had some ups and downs this year. But betters looking to take advantage of a recency bias will find a great opportunity in this match.


We expect the matchup between Craig Jones and Roberto Jimenez to be a firestorm. While Craig’s best opportunity will be to get to Roberto’s legs, he’ll have to be mindful about giving up his back. At +150, Jimenez could be worth the risk. 

Paulo Miyao has beaten Geo Martinez in each of their previous encounters. He’s never lost a match by submission, and his guard is nearly impassible. There are opportunities for Martinez to win a positional battle, but Miyao is the clear favorite. At -165, this is a safe bet to make.

High risk, high reward

The odds are against Matheus Diniz. He’s a +375 underdog against Gordon Ryan. Gordon is bigger, he has a higher win rate and submission percentage, and he’s beaten most of the best competitors in the world.

But Matheus Diniz has never been submitted, and he has a strategic game which helped him earn gold at ADCC 2019.

He has a path to victory. While the oddsmakers think it’s unlikely that he’ll execute on it, Diniz is capable of causing an upset.


Elisabeth Clay has her work cut out for her against Gabi Garcia. Garcia hasn’t lost a no-gi matchup since 2015, and she hasn’t been submitted in nearly 12 years as a black belt. She’ll have a weight advantage over Clay, and she has a knack for smashing guard players.

Clay is far from a safe bet, but it’s not impossible for her to beat Garcia. She’s a +330 underdog on a 12-match win streak, with her last four victories all coming over tough black belts.

ADCC 2021: A Very Early Look At 77KG

JT Torres ADCC

Last week I started the process of a series of articles speculating what the ADCC 2021 divisions will end up looking like, you can read the 66KG article here. While 66kg looks like it will be thin in terms of athletes who clearly deserve an invite, there os an abundance of established talent at 77kg, leaving few spots open and making the trials even more important at this weight.
