UFC on Fuel TV: Nogueira vs. Werdum
UFC odds are available at numerous sportsbooks for the June 7 UFC on Fuel TV 10 fight card featuring a rematch between Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum. The fight will also be the finale of the latest version of The Ultimate Fighter Brazil.
Nogueira won the initial match between the two back in 2006, but this time around a lot has changed for both fighters. Enough has changed that oddsmakers at 5Dimes have Big Nog handicapped as a +250 MMA odds underdog. With his best fights behind him, Nogueira will likely be dominated regardless of where the fight goes.
Bovada is currently offering a -300 option on the Werdum win, and there’s lots of value-rich prop options at 5Dimes like the -169 option on Werdum winning inside the distance and the -120 Under price of the fight going less than 2.5 rounds.
The Thiago Silva vs. Rafael Cavalcante Light Heavyweight matchup is handicapped more closely, with Cavalcante currently posted as the -205 favorite at Bovada despite the fact that he is entering the Octagon for the first time. A Silva payday will be worth as much as +175 at 5Dimes and has lots of value considering this fight will likely be fought standing.
A great UFC prop odds price of -175 is currently being offered at 5Dimes on the fight lasting Under the 2.5-round mark as well as a +900 longshot option on Silva winning in the first round. That bet has value for the only reason that if Silva wins this fight, it will likely be vicious and early.
At Welterweight, Erick Silva is currently a heavy -350 MMA odds favorite to beat Jason High at UFC on Fuel TV 10. He should have little difficulty making good on that option as he’s far more skilled in every aspect of the sport than his opponent.
