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.
