UFC 153: Silva vs Bonnar Betting Preview and Odds

betting previews and odds for UFC 153 Silva versus Bonnar

UFC 153 has Anderson Silva, arguably the greatest MMA fighter of all time, stepping up a weight class and taking on Stephan “The American Psycho” Bonnar in a non-title 3 round main event fight in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. Also in action is legend Minotauro Nogueira who is making his triumphant return from injury! Read our betting previews and get the best odds for UFC 153!

For the  main event, the odds maker has Anderson Silva set as a massive -1250 favourite over Bonnar! The “American Psycho” is not being given much chance in this one by the bookies at +725 odds, even with the size advantage he would hold. But I would not rush to bet those tempting odds on Bonnar just yet. Just remember the time Anderson Silva stepped up in weight class and humiliated Forrest Griffin. This shows  that Anderson is on a whole different level. We recommend playing Anderson Silva by KO/TKO at -185 odds.

Another fight that intrigues gamblers is the return of Minotauro Nogueira, aka “Big Nog”, after suffering a brutal fracture in his arm when he did not tap to a Frank Mir after getting caught in a “Kimura”. It will be interesting to see if Big Nog will be able to recover from his injury and still fight at the top level needed to win in the UFC. The oddsmakers have set Nogueira at -275 odds fighting in his home country against Dave Herman who is +200. One might think that if Nogueira loses he may decide to announce his retirement in front of the Brazilian fans.

Also, check out perennial contender Jon Fitch take on rising Brazilian superstar Erick Silva. The odds maker has this one set razor close with Erik Silva as a slight favourite at -135 odds, with Fitch set at +105. Erick Silva is a fast starter with explosive power in his hands, but has been susceptible to the takedown. Jon Fitch will have his hands full and will most likely try and take the fight to the ground as soon as possible. Look for either a spectacular KO by Erick Silva, or for Jon Fitch to wrestle his way to a boring decision victory.
