UFC 154 Betting Odds; Do You Agree?

Just a friendly disclaimer – In no way is this intended to be an educational piece on betting or encouragement to bet your hard earned cash on my stupid opinions.

BetUS has released the betting odds for UFC 154 and for the most part it is what you might expect. There are a few fights you could make some money on if you wanted to risk the moolah.

Johny Hendricks coming in at -150 over a ridiculously resilient Martin Kampmann could prove to be a big win for someone willing to fork over the dough. Kampmann wins big fights, however lately Hendricks is looking unbeatable.

Also on the card is Mark Hominick versus Pablo Garza. Hominick, a favorite at -350, is known to choke on occasion, but he is still a great fighter. That being said, Garza just fought Dennis Bermudez and Dustin Poirier back to back. Granted they were losses, but they are arguably tougher than Hominick. Mark is coming off a three fight losing streak and that could mean one of two things. Hominick may come out hungry and aggressive looking for the decisive win to keep him in the UFC’s good graces, or he could play it safe and possibly lose on points. Garza would be another good bet in my opinion.

Counting Tom Lawlor out is insane. At +220 Lawlor looks great and it is surprising that he is such an underdog to me. I look for Lawlor to potentially open some eyes and fatten some wallets during this event.

Carlos Condit may shock the world, but I doubt it. It’s GSP. Enough said.

Below are the full betting odds thanks to BetUS.

Pablo Garza +250
Mark Hominick -350

Nick Ring +180
Constantinos Philippou -230

Tom Lawlor +220
Francis Carmont -300

Martin Kampmann +120
Johny Hendricks -150

Carlos Condit +250
Georges St-Pierre -350
