UFC 183: Anderson da Silva vs. Nicholas Robert Diaz…Who Wins? We Do!

What an unbelievably great fight this should be! Anderson Silva, the former, long time, UFC Middleweight Champion, considered for years by many to be the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT) vs. Nick Diaz, one of the grittiest, toughest, best striking, most skilled BJJ practitioners, in the middleweight division. Who do you pick? How do you pick a winner in a tough fight like this one? One of the methods some may use is to check all the latest news on the blog to see what factors might seem to favor one over the other, and ultimately influence betting lines. We’ll explain that more fully below. Putting aside the true yet obvious fact that when two well matched fighters meet in the cage, either one always has a chance to win, what next?

Well, each fighter has a history complete with percentages, difficulty of competition, frequency of fights, propensity for injury, actual injuries, etc. The truth is though, that for most of us, this is simply way too much information to retain and process, which means that you’re often left to pick the fighter that you “think” (more likely feel) will win.

Many of you might be aware of the many betting lines that exist, to kinda sorta help you figure out which fighter is the favorite and which is the underdog. These also exist to help you feel better about parting with your hard earned money, in the hopes of multiplying it!

For those of you unfamiliar with how it works, here is a brief explanation.

Here is how UFC betting lines work.  The fights are going to be listed with numbers by their name:

Here’s an opening betting line for this middleweight fight. It is likely to change as the fight gets closer.

Anderson Silva: -405
Nick Diaz: +285

This means that if you want to bet on Anderson Silva, you will have to bet $405 for every $100 that you want to win.  You don’t have to bet that amount, but it works in that ratio, so every $40.50 bet will win you $10.  If you take Nick Diaz then for every $10 you wager, you’ll get $28.50 back if he wins.

Who do you believe will win? How? Why?

Hope that this helps, and good luck to Anderson Silva, Nick Diaz….and you, if you wanna make a little wager!
