UFC 129 Betting Odds Update

The odds for the upcoming UFC Welterweight title fight between Georges St-Pierre and Jake Shields in Toronto at UFC 129 have moved around a bit over the last few days, and 5Dimes is offering far better MMA odds on this fight than the other online sportsbooks right now.

St-Pierre is still handicapped as a heavy favorite to retain his title in the Octagon at UFC 129, but the cheapest line available at 5Dimes has dropped from -440 late last week down to only -390, and most books still have him at -500. Underdog lines on Shields have shifted from a +350 line at 5Dimes earlier last week to a top payout of +325 at Bovada.

We’ll take the cheaper price on St-Pierre all day long and still fully expect him to completely out-class Shields for as long as the fight lasts. St-Pierre will be ready on Saturday night and will show MMA fans what a complete fighter can do against a one-dimensional grappler like Shields.

If Ontario native Mark Hominick is to become the next UFC Featherweight champion he will have to overcome the big underdog MMA odds that are predicting he has little chance against Jose Aldo. For the simple reason that Aldo is one of the most complete fighters in the world, we also think that he will be safe money at the new 5Dimes price of -440. If you think Hominick can land a heavy strike and somehow get the upset it will now pay +350 at Bovada.

Randy Couture believes that he will match up well in the Octagon against the elusive Lyoto Machida in a three-round fight. The lines in this fight have not moved very much since last week, and oddsmakers at Bovada continue to offer the cheapest favorite line on Machida at -325. A Couture upset has climbed a bit and now pays a 5Dimes underdog price of +275. We think that this matchup will not fit well for Couture, who will likely have a tough time getting his hands on Machida.

Former WEC Lightweight champion Benson Henderson will make his Octagon debut against another hometown underdog in submission specialist Mark Bocek. Henderson is still one of the best in the 155-pound weight class and continues to come in at a bargain price of -125 at 5Dimes. The best upset line on Bocek is a +115 price at Bovada, but we’ll opt for the former WEC champ in this one.
