The betting lines are out for the full UFC 155 card, and I like what I'm seeing. A lot of the main card fights are very close, but I see most of them as a tad imbalanced and that means there's some value. The undercard isn't as nice, but there are a couple of bets there.
First off, Jim Miller at -220 is my favorite bet on the card. Normally anything over -200 isn't really worth it in the long run (at least in MMA), but I think Miller is a mortal lock here and I'll be putting money on him. I also love Tim Boetsch and Yushin Okami at basically even odds. I don't think Constantinos Philippou can handle Boetsch's physicality in the clinch, and Belcher is going to get grinded out by Okami (I'm sure the Belcher fans will take issue with that, but that's how I see it going). I also think that Chris Leben at -150 is a very good bet, considering Derek Brunson's performances in his last two bouts.
On the undercard, it's a little thinner. Melvin Guillard is a great bet at -135, but you could actually get him at even money a few days ago. He's still good all the way to -180 or so in my eyes. Leonard Garcia might not be the worst bet in the world either at +270. He does have good submission skills, and that appears to be Max Holloway's weakness at the moment. Hey, I'm not counting on Garcia going for a takedown either, but close to 3-1 ain't bad. Anyway here's a look at my recommended plays, and you can check out each and every line below.
