The UFC returns for their second event of the year this Friday night in Nashville, and it's full of tough picks. The odds are relatively close for most fights, and with good reason - no one's sure who is going to win. The main event line between Jim Miller and Melvin Guillard has closed slightly with some money coming in on Melvin's side, and I expect that to continue in advance of the fight. If you want to bet on Miller, wait until just before the fight.
In other main card bouts, Duane Ludwig opened as a bigger favorite but all the early money has come in on Josh Neer. Tread lightly in that fight though. Pat Barry has quickly emerged as a larger favorite than when the line opened, so jump on him right now if you're interested in betting on him (I already did). On the undercard, there's a whole lot of guessing. The only solid values that jump out at me are Jorge Rivera at +130 and Pat Schilling at +110 (and falling), but this doesn't seem like a card that you're going to be making a lot of money on. Sorry folks. Anyway, here are the lines (undercard after the jump as usual):
