The UFC returns to Fox this weekend with a stacked card of Heavyweight betting action. And MMA betting lines on the UFC on Fox 13 card are now available at the 5Dimes sportsbook, including moneyline and prop action on the main event between former UFC Heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos and Stipe Miocic.
Dos Santos is the ultimate UFC gatekeeper as the best No. 2 man in any division, having only suffered UFC losses to current champion Cain Velasquez. As expected he is a heavy favorite at 5Dimes against Miocic, currently listed at -400 to win.
Prop action offers an affordable -190 price on Dos Santos to win inside the distance. Dos Santos should do what he does to everyone other than Velasquez and dominate for a KO win. If you like longshots the upset line on Miocic will pay +325.
The co-main event will feature the return of Nate Diaz after a year-long sabbatical. He will be looking to put himself back into the mix of the UFC Lightweight picture. Rafael dos Anjos is coming off an impressive win over former champ Benson Henderson and is currently the favorite to win. UFC odds on Dos Anjos are currently set at -250 at 5Dimes while the Diaz upset will pay +190.
We agree with the oddsmakers at 5Dimes on this one and expect to see Diaz dominated. Dos Anjos via unanimous decision looks like the most likely outcome in this fight, especially in a three-rounder.
Alistair Overeem will need a win over Stefan Struve to remain in the UFC Heavyweight picture. Struve likes to stand and bang, and if he does that with Overeem this fight will be over in a hurry. Currently lines have Overeem listed as a -325 favorite, but he has not been able to make good on similar UFC betting odds in three of his last four fights.
