UFC on FX 6: Sotiropoulos vs. Pearson betting lines

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

The betting lines are out for UFC on FX 6, and quite frankly I'm not sure what to tell you. I didn't watch The Smashes so I know next to nothing about eight of the fighters. I've heard that Robert Whittaker was impressive, but that's about it. Either way though, I need to rebound from my dreadful showing at UFC on Fox 5, so let's take a look and see if we can find something that can make us some money. I doubt it though.

I don't like the main event at all for betting. It's a close fight, and five rounds just makes it that much more difficult to find value in. I'll bet on Rousimar Palhares at +175, but I don't have a ton of faith in him. And if Whittaker is what people say he is, -180 doesn't sound too bad to me.

On the undercard, LOL at the Mendes/Mesa line. And other than that, there doesn't seem to be much here at all. Beltran and Baczynski don't look like good underdog bets, Donovan/Penner is hard to call, and I don't know anything about the other guys. Basically, I'm pretty useless for this card. Sorry guys.

Recommended plays:

None. Seriously.
