UFC 150 Henderson vs Edgar Betting Odds

UFC 150 is this Saturday (August 11th) and will be held at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. The main event will be a rematch between Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar for the Lightweight Championship. The main card is stacked and there are a few fights on this card that should compete for the elusive FOTN bonus at UFC 150, my money is on Edgar v Henderson :fingerscrossed.

UFC 150 Main Event Odds & Predictions

  • Benson Henderson -189 vs. Frankie Edgar +170

Benson Henderson (16-2) will look to defend his Lightweight Championship against Frankie Edgar (14-2-1) in a rematch of the last fight. Henderson won by decision to take the belt from Edgar at UFC 144 and my money is on him to retain the title. Benson has to make sure he applies constant pressure like he did in the 1st fight and he’ll be fine.

Edgar had some nice takedowns in the 1st fight and was doing good in the early rounds, but Benson proved that his cardio was a bit better than Edgar’s and he managed to win the fight. Benson has a considerable height advantage and his relentless pace is going to be a problem for Edgar to match for 5-full rounds.

UFC 150 Main Card Odds & Predictions

  • Donald Cerrone -300 vs. Melvin Guillard +264

Donald Cerrone (18-4-1) and Melvin Guillard (30-10-2) will also meet in a lightweight fight in the co-main event. I’m still not 100% sure who I think will win this fight, but there is no doubt the value is on Guillard. I wouldn’t lay -300 on Cerrone although he does have the edge in numerous departments including submissions. Guillard is prone to being submitted and I think this may pan out like my pick on Varner last weekend. I’m laying off because I think Melvin is going to prove tough for Cerrone.

  • Jake Shields -185 vs. Ed Herman +166

Jake Shields (27-6-1) and Ed Herman (20-8) isn’t going to win a FOTN award in my opinion. This fight has the potential to be very boring if you don’t like wrestling. Both fighters average a big number of takedowns per 15 minutes (Shields 3.62 & Herman 4.18), but when you look at past competition you have to give the nod to Shields. 2011 was a tough year for Shields, but in 2012 he has beaten Akiyama already and he should be able to beat Herman despite Herman’s recent form being pretty good.

  • Yushin Okami -533 vs. Buddy Roberts +448

Yushin Okami (26-7) has been in bad form, but this is a fight he has to win. There is no way I’m touching this fight though, as to be honest I don’t anything here. Okami has been in poor form and his recent loss to Boetsch by TKO hurt. Roberts has only one fight in the UFC and I don’t know enough about him to feel confident betting on him despite his long odds. Buddy Roberts (12-2) seems to be a well-rounded fighter and I’m interested to see how he does this weekend.

  • Justin Lawrence -113 vs. Max Holloway +102

Justin Lawrence (4-0) and Max Holloway (5-1) is a featherweight division fight between two prospects. Holloway is the dog right now at +102 and I’ve bet on him earlier in the week at slightly better odds. Holloway looked alright against Poirier until he ended up getting caught in a submission in the 1st round. Max also came back and beat Schilling by decision in his next fight. Lawrence won his UFC debut, but he was beaten on TUF15 and I’m confident Holloway is the better prospect in this fight.
