It's July 4th. I'm in New Orleans. The last thing you're worried about are the betting lines for UFC 148, but I came back from a very nice (okay, a very sleazy) bar just to write this up. Why? Because it's raining, that's why. And because it's my job to keep y'all informed. And I had to drop off my tablet because everyone was making fun of it.

Anyway, let's get down to business. On the main card, I'm not sure what to think. Nothing jumps out at me as a "sure bet", though I'd probably nibble at Le at +200 and Maia at +115. The undercard is where it's at though. Nurmagomedov at +160 is nice, and Fukuda at +165 is a steal. I also like Oliveira at +150. If you're planning on betting on this card, I'd focus there for the real value.

Anyway I gotta get back to the bar, so here's what you're lookin' at (prelims after the jump).
