“UFC 121: Lesnar vs. Velasquez” COMPLETE Betting Lines

UFC Heavyweight Cain Velasquez
Is anyone interested in finding out how to make the most star-studded fight card of 2010 a little more interesting? Well, the Gambling Gods have just released the complete betting lines for tonight’s blockbuster “UFC 121: Lesnar vs. Velasquez” event.

Heavyweight kingpin Brock Lensar puts his title on the line against fast-rising Cain Velasquez in the card’s featured attraction. Although the reigning champ was an early -170 favorite, his odds have leveled off slightly as money appears to be moving on Velasquez’s side of the sand.
The powers that be have now pegged the challenger at +125, which means he could be approaching EVEN by the time the cage door slams shut inside the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. There are a lot of good fights tonight and several opportunities to make some money.
On the undercard Jon Madsen is a -200 favorite to beat Gilbert Yvel. Yvel has problems with wrestlers and Madsen is one of the best in the division. Look for Madsen to take him down and grind out a decision.
In another heavyweight undercard attraction former #1 contender Gabriel Gonzaga is actually a -155 favorite over Brendan Schaub. I feel that the wrong man is favored here. Schaub is younger and a lot more explosive. Gonzaga has been knocked out in the first round in two of his last three fights. Schaub has knockout power and is on a roll. Look for Schaub to via KO in the first or second round.
Another intriguing fight pits student, Matt Hamill vs teacher, Tito Ortiz. Hamill is on a roll (if you overlook his DQ win over Jon Jones). Ortiz hasn’t won a fight in four years. Hamill is younger and a lot better wrestler and striker. Ortiz is outclassed and Hamill should win via ground and pound or get a decision win. The only thing that worries me is if Hamill does what he did against former training partner, Rich Franklin. Hamill was tentative and seemed like he didn’t want to fight. But Hamill gets it done and Ortiz gets his walking papers.
Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez is hard to call. I think Brock has the size and power to knockout anyone, Cain Velasquez included. At UFC 99 Velasquez was rocked by some huge shots by Cheick Kongo. If Lensar lands shots like that Velasquez goes to sleep. But if the fight goes into rounds 4 and 5 I think Velasquez will win by KO. I wouldn’t put any action on this fight.
