UFC 183 Silva vs Diaz – Odds and Predictions
We’re heading back to Las Vegas on Saturday night for UFC 183. I can’t tell you how excited I am about the main event. The rest of the fight card has some potential, but the Silva vs. Diaz fight alone is going to be worth the cost of buying UFC 183 on PPV.

UFC 183 Betting Predictions
UFC 183 Best Bets – Scott Jack
- Bet Nick Diaz +400 (5 Dimes) vs. Anderson Silva
This could be a fight of the year candidate, but it’s hard to know what to expect. Anderson Silva (33-6) has lost two in a row against Weidman and he’s coming off a broken leg. Nick Diaz (26-9-0-1) lost his last two fights and he hasn’t been in the cage since 2013.
These two southpaw fighters will likely stand and bang with each other. Diaz won’t be fighting at his natural weight class, but he’s an active striker (5.63 SLpM). How confident will Silva be and will his leg hinder him? I’m a huge Diaz fan and at 4/1 I’ll take a shot.
- Bet Tyron Woodley +104 (5 Dimes) vs. Kelvin Gastelum
I hate betting against Kelvin Gastelum (10-0), as he’s 5-0 in the UFC and on his way to a title shot. However, Tyron Woodley (14-3) is 3-1 in his last four fights with three TKO/KO wins. Gastelum will look to push Woodley up against the cage and work his counters.
Woodley has 91% TD defense and can likely land a takedown or two on his own. Woodley has a 3’’ reach advantage and Gastelum has had a tendency to eat some big shots. Gastelum is going to be great in the division, but I feel Woodley has what it takes to win.
- Bet Al Iaquinta –183 (Bet365) vs. Joe Lauzon
Joe Lauzon (24-9) is a fighter that you don’t like betting against because he always gives it 100%. Al Iaquinta (10-3-1) has been great as of late with two straight TKO wins. Iaquinta has lost three fights by submission and has to avoid being taken down to the ground.
Iaquinta has 84% TD defense and will need to do his best to keep this fight standing where he has an edge. Iaquinta has more power and he’s much more active. Iaquinta averages 4.93 SLpM while Lauzon absorbs 4.52 SLpM. I really like Iaquinta to continue winning.
- Bet Jordan Mein –131 (Bet365) vs. Thiago Alves
This is a big fight for both Jordan Mein (29-9) and Thiago Alves (20-9). Alves beat Baczynski last year in his first fight back in the cage since 2012. This will be a real test for Alves. Mein has won his last two fights including an impressive TKO win over Pyle last time out.
Mein has the range and overall ability to win this fight, but Alves is definitely a tough out. Alves has killer leg kicks that could cause problems for the Canadian. On paper this fight is close, but I’ll take the younger fighter. Mein has the range and power to win.
- Bet Woodley – Iaquinta – Leites – Mein – Brunson Parlay +709 (5 Dimes)
I’m going with Woodley, Iaquinta and Mein on most of my parlays this weekend. For my main parlay I’m adding Thales Leites to beat Tim Boetsch and Derek Brunson to beat Ed Herman. Both fighters are huge favorites. At over 7/1 odds I like this parlay a lot.
