UFC 196 Odds, McGregor vs Diaz, Betting guide and the most recent Las Vegas odds

UFC 196: ‘McGregor vs Diaz. Betting guide and the most recent Las Vegas odds according to Bovada.

UFC 196 is just around the corner and here you can get all the details about the betting lines, favorites, underdogs, odds and more. The ring is ready for this spectacular match at MGM’s Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, this Saturday, March 5th, 2016.

Get ready for a bombardment of pugilistic talk and the usual awe of “F” talk related to MMA sports surrounding the UFC 196 this Saturday night (March 5, 2016), taking place in the best place for such an event at no other but the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas.

Conor McGregor, a featherweight champion is going up in class (after gaining 25 pounds) to face the welterweight controversial fighter Nate Diaz. Also featuring this event is Holly Holm, the women’s Bantamweight champion who will be defending her title for the first time against her rival Miesha Tate. This will be a pay-per-view event.

Aside from this event, and also on PPV, Gian Villante goes against Ilir Latifi and Amanda Nunes fights Valentina Shevchenko in what seems to be a # 1 contender eliminator event.

It may not have its incredible original main event, which was supposed to feature McGregor against Lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos, but it’s still a damn fine card. Here’s how to turn your PPV purchase into a net profit.

It may not be as appealing or stunning as the main event, which was originally set between McGregor and lightweight champ Rafael dos Anjos, but it is definitely another good selection of UFC action, and a good way to use your PPV purchase as an investment for a turnaround in profit.

Odds For The Undercard (UFC 196):

Brandon Thatch (-310) vs. Siyar Bahadurzada (+255)
Erick Silva (-230) vs. Nordine Taleb (+190)
Vitor Miranda (-310) vs. Marcelo Guimaraes (+255)
Chas Skelly (-150) vs. Darren Elkins (+130)
Jim Miller (-140) vs. Diego Sanchez (+120)
Jason Saggo (-210) vs. Justin Salas (+175)
Julian Erosa (-220) vs. Teruto Ishihara (+180)

We have something to say about these odds: Skelly should have more odds in his favor, it seems ridiculous that he is listed as that small figure. Chass “The Scapper” is much better than Elkins, in fact he is hands down a takedown professional and an artist when it comes to finish his opponents on the mat. Every time Elkins incursions into an upper class has come out short, nothing is worth mentioning since his days when he beat Chad Mendes.

In brief, Skelly is the most valuable card, so much that I’m considering breaking my usual parlay rule of “don’t put the same fighter in two parlays”.

Pickings are a bit slim on the underdog side of things outside of Teruto Ishihara, whose big power and atypical striking style seem well-suited to ruining the lanky Erosa’s day. It’s a shame “Yashabo” hasn’t stayed above +200, but I say he’s still worth a look.

Aside from Teruto Ishihara, when it comes to the underdogs chances are slim. Teruto’s enormous power and unusual striking technique could certainly undermine Erosa. I was expecting “Yashabo” to stay above the +200 mark, but even if he is not he is still a good bet to consider.

Odds For The Main Card (UFC 196):

Conor McGregor (-430) vs. Nate Diaz (+380)
Holly Holm (-345) vs. Miesha Tate (+285)
Ilir Latifi (-210) vs. Gian Villante (+175)
Corey Anderson (-310) vs. Tom Lawlor (+255)
Amanda Nunes (-150) vs. Valentina Shevchenko (+130)

My take: apparently oddsmakers are not fully convinced of Gian Villante’s dull performance yet, we can use that in our advantage before they realize. Latifi’s wrestling skills are enough to repel Villante’s takedown strategy, clearly the Swede’s punch has more power than what Villante’s chin can withstand.

Toss “The Sledgehammer” in a parlay and gather up the rewards.

Holly Holm may seem prohibitively favored, but parlaying her with Skelly gives positive odds. Tate, for all her recent improvement, is every bit as bad as Ronda Rousey when it comes to fighting in a straight line and leading with her face. I can’t imagine “Cupcake” accomplishing much besides eating left hands to the jaw and chasing futile double-legs all night.

Holly Holm appears to be indubitable favored, a parlay that includes her and Skelly shed light for positive odds. But do not underestimate Tate, after all of her recent improvement she is now as bad as Ronda Rousey was, including her style of keeping the action in a straight line and leading the fight using her face. Still, it is hard to picture “cupcake” doing much more other than munching left hands straight to the jaw, and dancing to the swing of double-lets through the night.

UFC 196 Best Bets:

Parlay — Chas Skelly and Ilir Latifi: Bet $40 to make $58.40
Single bet — Teruto Ishihara: Bet $25 to make $45
Parlay — Chas Skelly and Holly Holm: Bet $60 to make $69
