UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot Odds
Cain Velasquez will look to defend his UFC Heavyweight title for the first time at UFC 160, and he will be facing a fighter that he already destroyed only a year ago.
Antonio Silva has been on a tear since his defeat against Velasquez last May, and his recent knockout of Alistair Overeem has put him into this rematch against Velasquez for the belt.
The -385 option on Velasquez winning by KO/TKO or the +200 option on Velasquez winning in the first round are just a couple of the tempting UFC prop options available.
The same rings true with the Junior dos Santos vs. Mark Hunt fight. dos Santos is currently a -420 favorite at 5Dimes, while the Hunt upset will pay +335. With two sluggers like these guys the -145 'fight doesn’t go to a decision' and the +114 'dos Santos wins inside the distance' MMA betting prop options look to have more value.
Glover Teixeira and James Te Huna will throw down for a chance to climb to the upper echelon of the Light Heavyweight division rankings. Teixeira gets the nod in this one as the 5Dimes UFC odds -300 favorite mainly because he has the option to win the fight on the ground if things don’t go his way in the stand-up portion of the fight.
The Te Huna +250 upset option at 5Dimes has some value but will require that he lands a big strike early to pay out.
The best option for an upset payday on the UFC 160 fight card is the T.J. Grant vs. Gray Maynard fight. Grant is currently a +175 underdog at 5Dimes but is much improved and undefeated as a Lightweight.
Maynard may be handicapped as the -210 favorite at Bovada but he has been out of action for nearly a year following a boring win over Clay Guida where Guida ran for three rounds.
