UFC 173 Betting Odds


UFC 173 takes place on May 24 and UFC betting fans are anticipating the return of the very reliable fighter at the sportsbooks. UFC Bantamweight champion Renan Barao will defend his title for the fourth time and look to carry on his 31-fight unbeaten streak in the process.

UFC 173 Betting OddsDespite losing to Raphael Assuncao in October, T.J. Dillashaw gets the newest title shot handicapped as a +550 UFC 173 betting underdog at 5Dimes. Action to win on Barao currently includes a -800 price at Bovada, however, many real value is found in the prop bet options at 5Dimes.

Barao inside the exact distance at -150, fight doesn’t go to a decision at -190, or the UNDER 4.5 rounds at -175 really are a few good options to pick from or perhaps a good collection for a parlay bet. The step up in competition for Dillashaw can become evident early on, and how tough Dillashaw is will determine how deep this fight goes.

The UFC 173 betting card co-main event can also be handicapped as a one-sided affair with action on Daniel Cormier to win coming with a 5Dimes -800 price. The unlikely Dan Henderson upset will currently pay as much as +600 at Bovada on the UFC betting lines, but as usual more affordable options can be purchased in the props.

The Cormier wins inside the exact distance at UFC odds of +145 is one that sticks out the most. Cormier is going to be too quickly for the aging Henderson, and if the indications are correct that Henderson’s chin is finished this fight appears to have more potential to be over early than handicappers are considering.

Welterweights Jake Ellenberger and Robbie Lawler will battle to stay in the upper divisional rankings with a win at UFC 173. Lawler gets the nod as the UFC odds -240 favorite, but the prop option of Lawler wins inside the exact distance at +115 looks more appealing. The Ellenberger upset will probably pay +200 at Bovada, however you should get the extra longshot value on the Ellenberger wins inside the exact distance option at +560.
