UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie Odds

One of the pound-for-pound best MMA fighters in the world will be on display this Saturday night at UFC 163 when UFC Featherweight champion Jose Aldo defends his title against the surging Korean Zombie, Chan Sung Jung.

The card also offers a Light Heavyweight bout between two of the top fighters in the division when former champion Lyoto Machida steps into the Octagon with Phil Davis.

As expected Aldo is a heavy favorite to defend his title for the seventh time in his usual exciting fashion. Currently a -750 favorite at Bovada, the more valuable MMA odds on Aldo can be found in the 29 prop options available at 5Dimes.

Aldo by KO/TKO at -140 and Aldo wins inside the distance at -240 are just a couple of value options. Barring a sneaky submission (+1150 at 5Dimes), Jung has few options to pay out on the +500 UFC odds on him to win at 5Dimes.

Lyoto Machida will also be on display Saturday night when he faces the elite wrestling skills of Phil Davis. Machida’s footwork and striking will likely be the difference in this one, and despite the -350 MMA odds price on The Dragon at Bovada, he looks like he’s worth the risk against his one-dimensional opponent.

The only option on Davis with any real value would be the +510 UFC odds on Davis wins by decision at 5Dimes. It’s unlikely that Davis wins this fight, but if he does, he will do it by out-wrestling his opponent for a decision win.

Thales Leites makes his return to the Octagon at UFC 163 against UK fighter Tom Watson. This fight is handicapped closely with Leites listed at 5Dimes as the slim -122 favorite, while a Watson win will pay +108 at Bovada.

If we’ve learned one thing about Brazilian UFC cards it’s to bet on Brazilians when they’re fighting at home. The 5Dimes prop option of Leites inside the distance also looks good at MMA odds of +250.
