UFC 134 BetDSI Preview: Silva vs Okami Betting Lines

The UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva will look for some payback when he takes on Yushin Okami at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro in the main event.

UFC 134 Betting Lines:

YUSHIN OKAMI   PK+365

ANDERSON SILVA PK-515

Over/Under

OKAMI/SILVA -OVER- o4½+155

OKAMI/SILVA -UNDER- u4½-205

UFC 134 Betting Breakdown:

There is a misconception about Silva’s loss in his match against Okami.  Silva was never defeated; he was disqualified for landing an illegal up-kick that prevented Okami from continuing. Considering the way it happened, you can tell Silva wants some revenge.

Since that loss, Silva has won 14 straight fights where seven of those ended in some sort of knockout.  Silva is easily the best UFC fighter pound by pound out there and I don’t see how Yushin will be anything but another W on his resume.

Okami is the kind of guy who will take this fight to the ground in order to win; he’s a stand and bang fighter who likes to also use his wrestling and judo to take the fight to the floor.  His problem is that Silva is at home with his crowd and according to UFC.com the Brazilian avoids 80% of the takedowns his opponents’ attempt.

UFC 134 Betting Promotions:

BetDSI Sportsbook offers a free handicapping contest at UFContest.com where each participant makes picks for each fight in the event, you choose the winner, the method of victory, the round of victory, and the minute of victory in order to make some big money.

There is also the live in-fight betting feature for the customers to place some action while the fight is on, something that you won’t find in any other sportsbook in the business.

UFC 134 Betting Pick: There isn’t much to analyze. Silva is the all around better fighter. Bet on Silva retaining his title to get his 15th straight win.

The demand was too great. The UFC, quite simply, had no choice. The fan outcry was too long, too loud. If the UFC didn't start staging two cards in one day every so often, the global consumer base was going to revolt, atrophy, die or worse. Welcome to the brave new world. UFC Fight Night 41 and the The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 finale, both held on May 31, were the Lewis and Clark of this subgenre.

The (female) fighters in the UFC are more worried about showing their a---s more

There are six title fights currently scheduled between now and the end of the year. That's six fighters who have a chance to achieve the ultimate goal of being a UFC champion. Unlucky for them, there are far more than six fighters who have a shot at being champions by the end of the year. There are No. 1 contender matches scheduled, top-level fighters waiting for an opportunity to fight, and others who are waiting on the sidelines for their chance to fight for the title.

The UFC continues to snap up talent faster than you can say Jack Robinson. Because the UFC is acquiring fighters at such a rapid pace, I've left a few people off my recent "Welcome to the UFC" scouting posts. Fighters like Sam Alvey, Kevin Casey, Leonardo Mafra (both Casey and Mafra are actually returning), and Rin Nakai and Tina Lahdemaki (who were each covered in seperate posts). Hopefully I won't have to do this much more, but with the accelerated rate at which the UFC appears to be signing t more
