Updated Betting Lines for UFC 77

Just thought I'd put out a quick update on the betting lines for tonight's UFC event.

From at 4:45pm Central

Yushin Okami -290
Jason MacDonald +230

Josh Burkman -295
Forrest Petz +235

Jason Black -265
Matt Grice +205

Jorge Gurgel -165
Alvin Robinson +135

Ryan Jensen +160
Demian Maia -200

Anderson Silva -215
Rich Franklin +175

Stephan Bonnar -325
Eric Schafer +250

Alan Belcher EVEN
Kalib Starnes -130

Brandon Vera -145
Tim Sylvia +115

Follow after the fold for the moves I made.

I took Tim Sylvia when he was at +125, Alvin Robinson at +135, and Matt Grice at +250 (yeah...I went all dogs for tonight).  While I predicted Black to win that fight there is a TON of value in money on Grice.  You have to remember that betting is more about finding value than just straight up "who will win."  Obviously you don't want to bet on someone you think will lose, but when you look at a fight like Black/Grice it seems like a toss-up for who will ...but the line basically says that Grice is a 2.5 to 1 underdog.  That is value.
