UFC on Fuel 5 Betting Lines

Looking to make a few bets on the UFC on Fuel 5 card this weekend? Here's a look at the lines and some suggestions on solid picks.

The UFC on Fuel 5 betting odds are out, and I'm not all that impressed. Part of it is just a lot of newer and/or unpredictable fighters, and part of it is that the lines for most bouts are surprisingly well set. Stipe Miocic deserves to be around where he's at, you'd have to consider Dan Hardy to be a small favorite, Pickett's about right, etc. But there has to be something here, so I'll point out my small leans.

Paul Sass at even money against Wiman sounds great at first glance. Wiman likes to grind away on top and that's right in Sass' wheelhouse for a triangle. Can he pull it off on a guy with excellent submission defense? Considering he was able to against Jacob Volkmann, I wouldn't be surprised. So it is worth a small bet to me.

On the undercard, I think the best bet is Robert Peralta at -130. Jason Young is solid, but I think Peralta has the better all-round game and can definitely hang on the feet. Brad Tavares might be a good pick over Tom Watson as well, especially if he takes the fight to the floor. So here's a look at my picks for the event, and a look at how I did last week. You can check out the lines for the full card below.

Recommended plays:
.5 unit on Paul Sass at -115
1.5 units on Robert Peralta at -130
.5 unit on Brad Tavares at -165

UFC 152 picks: 3-1, +1.83 units
