UFC on Fox 5 full card betting lines

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

Another fight card, another set of betting lines. There are some pretty good lines for the UFC on Fox 5 card main card, so I'm even more excited about it than I normally would be. The undercard isn't so pretty though. Anyway, I won't waste time with a snappy intro so let's get right to it.

On the main card, I'm staying away from the main event. I like Shogun at +190 in the co-main, simply because I don't think he should be written off yet and he has the power to finish anyone. I also like his clinch trips and if he wants it on the floor, he might be able to get it there and pound away. That's not a very good assessment of the fight, but +190 is a good price. Undoubtedly the best line on the main card is on Mike Swick at -145 though. That's an absolute steal, and I'd bet on Swick all the way up to -220 or so. Do it, and do it now.

On the undercard, my top two bets would be on Henry Martinez at +110 and Ramsey Nijem at -175, but they're not exactly barnburners. Easton at -225 is a pretty good price too. The rest of it is kind of lame though.

Recommended plays:
2 units on Swick at -145
.75 on Shogun at +190
.75 on Martinez at +110
.5 on Easton at -225

Last event - UFC 154: 3-1, +2.8 units
Total (6 events): 15-7, +8.7 units
