UFC 160: Glover Teixeira opens as big favorite over James Te Huna

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Glover Teixeira will look to make it four UFC wins in a row at UFC 160, and oddsmakers have decided that he is the distinct favorite over James Te Huna going in.

With Ryan Bader out of his UFC 160 bout with the rising Glover Teixeira, James Te Huna was inserted into his place on the May 26th card. And oddsmakers have installed Glover as big favorite over Te Huna despite both having recent success. Here's the line (via BestFightOdds):

SportBet and 5Dimes are the only major sites offering the line right now, without much variation. Teixeira (20-2, 3-0 UFC) is on an 18-fight winning streak and picked up a huge win over former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson at UFC on Fox 6 in January. Te Huna (16-5, 5-1 UFC) shook off an early knockdown to take a unanimous decision over Ryan Jimmo in his last bout.

In terms of betting, I'd stay away from this. Te Huna showed that he can get caught on the feet in his last bout, and Teixeira's wrestling looked very impressive against Rampage. Basically the line is set pretty well right now and unless there's a major swing in it, I don't see much value.
