Big Underdogs Might Surprise in UFC 109 Odds

December 2, 2010 UFC

UFC 109 odds are dominated by major favorites, especially on the main even portion of the card.

Can underdogs have their day and provide big profits in UFC betting?  Here is a look at the prices for UFC 109: Relentless which will be held on Saturday, February 6th from Las Vegas.

UFC 109 odds have the main event being a battle between two Hall of Fame fighters as Randy Couture battles Mark Coleman.  Not many people are giving Coleman a chance, as he is almost a 4-1 underdog against Couture in UFC 109 odds.  He is not the only fighter to be receiving big UFC 109 odds. 

Chael Sonnen is about a 3-1 underdog in UFC 109 odds in his bout against Nate Marquardt.  Dan Miller is almost a 3-1 underdog in UFC betting against Demian Maia. Even the bout between Mike Swick and Paulo Thiago has Swick as a 2-1 favorite. The only bout on the pay-per-view portion of the card that has close UFC 109 odds is the one between Matt Serra and Frank Trigg. Serra is a -130 favorite in that fight.

Is it possible that the underdogs will have their day in UFC 109?  It would only take one of the main four underdogs winning to break even unless it was Thiago.   The two biggest underdogs in UFC betting are Coleman and Sonnen.  Do either of them have a chance to spring the upset?  Not many people think so.  Coleman is a Hall of Fame fighter but most people believe he is past his prime.  Sonnen is given even less of a chance against Marquardt who was very impressive last time out as he destroyed Demian Maia in UFC betting.

There are a total of six fights on the preliminary card in UFC 109 odds, two of which will be shown live on Spike TV.  Those two bouts are Mac Danzig vs. Justin Buchholz and Melvin Guillard vs. Ronys Torres. The other four bouts on the preliminary card have Phillipe Nover vs. Rob Emerson, Brian Stann vs. Phil Davis, Tim Hague vs. Chris Tuchscherer and Mostapha Al-Turk vs. Rolles Gracie.

In addition to some big underdogs on the main card, there will also be the chance to take some prices on the preliminary card.  Very often in UFC betting it seems to go one way or the other.  If one favorite wins, then they all seem to do well.  If one underdog comes through then a bunch of them seem to win.  Will UFC 109 be one for the dogs?
