UFC 158 Odds and Betting Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 3/15/2013
If you don’t like welterweights, then you aren’t going to be much of a fan of UFC 158, which is being held at the Bell Centre in Montreal. The top three fights on the card all feature the 170-pound fighters. Obviously, the Montreal fans aren’t going to mind — their hero, Georges St. Pierre, will be defending his title in his second fight back from the knee injury that cost him a year and a half. Here’s how the main card breaks down (all UFC 158 odds are from Bovada):
UFC 157 Odds and Betting Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 2/21/2013
When the UFC heads to the Honda Center in Anaheim for UFC 157 on Saturday night, they’ll need something the organization has never had to worry about before — a dressing room for female fighters. The headline fight of this card will be the first women’s fight in UFC history. That makes this by far the biggest spotlight that women’s fighting has ever been under. No pressure. Here’s how that fight and the rest of the main card breaks down with some predictions for each match (all UFC 157 odds are from Bovada):
UFC 156 Odds and Betting Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 1/30/2013
This is the third UFC event of the year but the first on pay-per-view, and, therefore, it will be the first that really counts in the eyes of many. Taking advantage of the wildly-popular Super Bowl weekend in Vegas, the event will be held at Mandalay Bay on Saturday night, Feb. 2. The highlight of the card is the return to action of Featherweight champion Jose Aldo. Due to a variety of circumstances — mostly his injuries — he has been sidelined since January of last year. Against former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar we’ll find out in a hurry if he’s still the dominant fighter he was, or if time and rust of robbed him of his edge.
UFC 155 Odds and Betting Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 12/27/2012
If it seems like forever since we last had a major UFC event, that’s because it has been. Earlier this year we were having an event practically every week, but UFC 154 was all the way back on Nov. 17, so our patience has been tested for six weeks. UFC 155 takes place on Saturday, Dec. 29 from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. There have been TV events in the meantime, but that’s not the same. This isn’t the best card that the UFC has ever assembled, but it is also far from the worst. The heavyweight championship is up for grabs, and we see a pretty good lightweight fight and tons of action in the middleweight class on the main card as well. Without further ado, our UFC 155 preview (all odds are from Bovada):
UFC 154 Odds and Betting Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 11/15/2012
The UFC is returning to Canada on Saturday night — Montreal this time around. When the organization goes north of the border there is a decent chance that Georges St. Pierre will be fighting if he is healthy. Mercifully, GSP is indeed healthy after an 18-month absence. Now the guy who is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world in my mind gets to show whether he has lost a step. The rest of the main card isn’t the strongest or the most interesting we have ever seen by any means, but given the anticipation I’m sure no one will notice or care.
UFC 153 Odds and Betting Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 10/11/2012
We are heading back to Brazil for another UFC card — this time UFC 153, which comes to us on Saturday night from Rio de Janeiro. As we have come to expect when the UFC goes road tripping, the card is heavy on the home country content — each of the six fights on the main card features at least one Brazilian. At the top of the pile, of course, is Anderson Silva — the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet.
UFC 152 Odds and Betting Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 9/20/2012
If it seems like forever since we last previewed a UFC event it’s because it has been forever. UFC 151 was cancelled thanks to even more of the injuries that have plagued the organization all year. That means that Aug. 11 was the last time we had an event to write about. Just over a month might not seem like a long time to outsiders, but given the torrid pace the UFC has been holding cards the last couple of years it is certainly notable.
UFC 150 Predictions and Betting Odds
by T.O. Whenham - 8/8/2012
UFC 149, which unfortunately took place in my hometown of Calgary, was perhaps the worst card ever held by the organization. It was a mess — both to watch and to bet on. It’s a much better card this time around for UFC 150, which comes to us from the Pepsi Center in Denver on Saturday night.
UFC 150 Odds: Edgar vs. Henderson Betting Predictions
by Scott Johnson - 8/7/2012
This Saturday, UFC 150 will play host to yet another UFC lightweight title rematch. At UFC 144, former WEC Champion Benson Henderson won a five-round unanimous decision over Frankie Edgar to capture the UFC’s Lightweight Championship. As many people expected him too, Edgar immediately called for a rematch and was awarded it by the UFC. The precedent for an immediate return engagement had long been established through Edgar’s title reign.
UFC 149 Odds and Betting Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 7/20/2012
The UFC is coming to my hometown of Calgary on Saturday night for UFC 149. Given all the problems they have had with this card it could easily be the last time they come here. Normally I start these previews by talking about any changes there may be to the lineup due to injuries. If I were to do that here, though, it would take me days.
UFC 148 Odds and Betting Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 7/6/2012
The UFC has had terrible luck with injuries and underwhelming cards recently. The UFC 148 card, taking place Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, should help erase those memories. The main event pitting challenger Chael Sonnen against top MMA pound-for-pound fighter and seemingly eternal champion Anderson Silva is certainly the most intriguing and anticipated fight of the year.
UFC 148 Predictions: Sonnen vs. Silva Odds and Predictions
by Scott Johnson - 7/2/2012
Saturday will mark one of the most anticipated rematches in the history of the UFC for UFC 148. Long considered the best middleweight fighter on the planet, Anderson Silva (-280 on Bovada) will step into the cage with the stiffest challenge of his career. Standing across the Octagon from the champ will be the man that nearly defeated him at UFC 117 back in 2010, Chael Sonnen (+220).
UFC 147 Odds and Betting Predictions
by T.O. Whenham - 6/21/2012
UFC 146 was very kind to us — my recommended bet was a parlay that paid off handsomely. Here’s hoping we can carry the momentum forward onto this card. The problem with UFC 147, which takes place on Saturday, June 23, in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, is that it just isn’t very interesting. It was supposed to be, but there have been so many changes to the lineup that there just isn’t too much left to get excited about.
UFC 146 Odds and Betting Predictions for Full Fight Card
by T.O. Whenham - 5/25/2012
If you don’t like heavyweights then you aren’t going to be a fan of Saturday night’s UFC card from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Not only is the main event a Junior Dos Santos title defense against Frank Mir, but all five fights on the main card feature the biggest of fighters.
UFC 146 Odds and Predictions: Dos Santos vs. Mir
by Scott Johnson - 5/23/2012
The combined weight of the 10 UFC heavyweight fighters that will comprise the main card of the promotion’s next event, UFC 146, is an unearthly 2,446 pounds. Headlining this heavyweight lineup will be the newly-crowned UFC 265-pound champion Junior ‘Cigano’ Dos Santos (-500 at Bovada). This will be Dos Santos’ first title defense and opposing the champion will be Frank Mir (+350), who will be appearing in his fifth UFC title fight.
UFC on Fox 3 Odds and Betting Predictions
by Scott Johnson - 5/1/2012
Jim Miller and Nate Diaz will meet in the main event of the latest UFC on FOX card this Saturday. Miller (-225) has long been at the top of the division, but despite an 8-1 record since mid-2009, a shot at UFC Lightweight Title has eluded him. Diaz (+175) has been living in the shadow of his older brother, but with back-to-back impressive performance he has thrust himself into the title conversation.
UFC 144 Odds and Betting Picks
by T.O. Whenham - 4/20/2012
If it seems like it has been a really long time since we have had a major UFC event there is a good reason for that — it has been a really long time. The event that was supposed to March 24 in Montreal was cancelled, so UFC 144 was nearly two months ago on February 26. We’re back now, though, and we get to see arguably the most exciting fighter currently in the sport defend his light heavyweight title. UFC 145 takes place on Saturday, April 21 at Philips Arena in Atlanta. Here’s how the six fights on the main card break down (all odds are from Bovada):
UFC 144 Odds and Betting Picks
by T.O. Whenham - 2/23/2012
With Pride no longer looming as a major rival, the UFC returns to Japan, the turf of Pride, for the first time since 2000. The UFC 144 card, which will be shown here Saturday night thanks to time zones, is unique for another reason — it features seven fights on the main card instead of the normal five. That means that the PPV will be four hours instead of three — great news for fans. Here’s a look at how the main card shapes up (all UFC 144 odds are from Bovada):
UFC 144 Predictions: Edgar vs. Henderson Betting Odds
by Scott Johnson - 2/20/2012
Saturday the UFC returns Japan for the first time since UFC 29: Defense of the Belts. Just like its predecessor, UFC 144: Edgar vs Henderson will feature a UFC title fight as the lightweight champion Frankie ‘The Answer’ Edgar (-130, all lines from Bovada) defends his title against the challenger Ben ‘Smooth’ Henderson (EVEN).
UFC 143 Odds and Betting Picks
by T.O. Whenham - 2/3/2012
When UFC 143 ends on Saturday night we will have witnessed, at least for the time being, the end of an era. Georges St. Pierre absolutely dominated the welterweight division. While no fighter could beat him, injuries have got the best of him. He’ll still have his day when he is healthy, but on Saturday an interim titleholder will be named.
