UFC 103 Betting Odds and Picks

By Paul Thursday, September 17, 2009
UFC 103 this Saturday night is going up against another highly anticipated Pay-per-view event as Floyd Mayweather makes his return to the ring the same night. What could hurt UFC betting is that Mayweather has been out of the ring since 2007 and people have no doubt missed seeing him dance around the ring, making his opponents look foolish.

Regardless, the faithful MMA fan base will have their priorities in order when the bell rings and will be entertained to a card that is full of knockout potential. The main event pits Vitor Belfort against Rich Franklin at the Catchweight of 195 lbs.

Although this isn’t a title fight of any kind, both men have something on the line. Franklin needs to prove that he deserves a shot at the light-heavyweight title, and Belfort is in line for a fight with Anderson Silva so he needs to send a message that he can hang with the big boys too.

International superstar, Mirko Filipovic, is looking to gain some legitimacy with the UFC fight fans as his first few bouts have been disappointments to say the least. Josh Koscheck will also be looking to send a message to the middleweight division as he takes on Frank Trigg in an earlier bout.

Here is a full card preview with the available BetUS MMA lines on each fight.

MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view)
Vitor Belfort (+110) vs. Rich Franklin (-140)
Junior Dos Santos (-135) vs. Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic (+105)
Martin Kampmann (NA) vs. Paul Daley (NA)
Josh Koscheck (-400) vs. Frank Trigg (+300)
Hermes Franca (+210) vs. Tyson Griffin (-280)

PRELIMINARY CARD (Spike TV)
Efrain Escudero (-160) vs. Cole Miller (+130)
Tomasz Drwal (-115) vs. Drew McFedries (-115)

PRELIMINARY CARD (Un-aired)
Steve Lopez vs. Jim Miller
Nick Lentz vs. Rafaello Oliveira
Jason Brilz vs. Eliot Marshall
Vladimir Matyushenko vs. Igor Pokrajac
Rafael dos Anjos vs. Rob Emerson

UFC 103 will have hardcore fans all over the world salivating, but it is lacking a real headliner that we’ve become accustomed to. Still, if you watched the UFC 103 Countdown show, they made Vitor Belfort out to be one of the baddest men on the planet. After watching it I’m a little worried that he might rip Rich Franklin’s head off in the middle of the cage.

Besides the headliner, there are plenty of fights on the UFC 103 card that can be very lucrative opportunities for MMA bettors looking to cash in.
