PFL makes their Chicago debut this Friday at the Wintrust Arena for the final event of the first-half of the 2024 Regular Season. This Friday’s event features clashes in the welterweight and featherweight divisions. The featured 145-lbs. fight of the night showcases 2022 PFL Featherweight Champion Brendan Loughnane (27-5, 9-2 PFL) and Bellator MMA’s Pedro Carvalho (13-8, 6-5 BMMA).

Draftkings Moneyline has Loughnane as Huge Betting Favorite for PFL Chicago

Draftkings Sportsbooks fight line for this featured featherweight showdown has Loughnane as a massive betting favorite, currently sitting at -520. Subsequently, Carvalho is a +390 underdog heading into Friday night.

This line has big opportunity for the fight fan who believes in the underdog. Manchester’s Loughnane rightfully holds the betting favorite, as the 34-year-old has found more overall success in his 32-fight career and has even climbed the top of PFL food chain, earning their 145-lbs. title in 2022. However, Loughnane is coming off of a knockout loss to Jesus Pinedo. This would mark the first T/KO loss in his career. Now after a 10-month layoff, Loughnane will look to shake off the cobwebs against one of Bellator’s grizzled veterans.

Carvalho, although suffering a two-fight losing skid, does have the ability to finish fights. “The Game” has eight career finishes in thirteen career wins. It is tough to count out Carvalho considering Loughnane’s circumstances, and with the current moneyline standings, it might not be a bad idea to sprinkle some green on the underdog.
