UFC 149: Faber Vs. Barao Betting Lines

via cdn2.sbnation.com

The betting lines have dropped for UFC 149, and there's some decent stuff here. The main event is a little closer than the line has it, and Urijah Faber might be a solid bet at +160. The best bet of the main card is undoubtedly Tim Boetsch though. +275 is crazy, and you can get him as high as +335 on 5Dimes. That's insane. Cheick Kongo and even Chris Clements are worth a look as well.

The undercard isn't quite as juicy. All the bouts are fairly close and tough to predict. Not many people will agree with this, but I think the best value is on Antonio Carvalho. He didn't look good in his first UFC fight, but he's a very cagey fighter and Daniel Pineda isn't going to be able to steamroll him. Anthony Perosh might be worth a look at +140 too.

Here's a look at all the lines (prelims after the jump):
