The betting lines are out for the full UFC 152 card today, and I'm liking what I'm seeing. The main card has one line I'll be jumping on, and the undercard has two or three that you could make some money off of as well. The main one that jumps out at me is Michael Bisping at -175. I think he should be a much bigger favorite to win that fight, considering that he's better almost everywhere. I'll be putting the bulk on my UFC 152 money on him. Other than that, the main card looks pretty simple and there's not much value anywhere.
On the undercard, I like Evan Dunham at -205, Sean Pierson at +135, and Seth Baczynski at -145. Dunham's a bit on the high side at over -200, but he's dealt with better grapplers than Grant handily in the past and I think he's got this. Pierson is more of a gamble, but his wrestling is up to snuff and it should be a good, close fight. And I think Baczynski wins simply because he won't get submitted and he can do enough to take it otherwise.
So I'm gonna start something new here. I'll recommend plays, and keep track of how I'm doing so you guys can see how good/bad I am at this. I promise I'm generally good and have made good money betting on MMA, but this should be a fun way for you to follow along with me (and make fun of me when I lose). If it's dumb and I shouldn't do this, tell me in the comments. I can also explain the unit size thing (get your mind out of the gutter) in the comments for those that are new to betting.
3 units on Bisping at -175
1 unit on Dunham at -205
.5 unit on Pierson at+135
.75 unit on Baczynski at -145
