UFC 108 Bet Pick/Prediction: Rashad Evans Vs Thiago Silva

The betting line opened up at -195 Evans and lower at some places and money has been coming steady on Evans. Rashad is the more well known fighter and betting odds man be a bit over price on Evans as public money comes in on Sugar. Rashad is coming of a big knockout loss and the loss of his UFC title. He has to comeback from his first career loss and KO and it will be interesting to see where his head is at. Silva is a very aggressive straightforward fighter and his last 11 fights have all ended in the first round. Only one of Silva's fights have went the distance. Greg Jackson was inJardine's corner when Silva KOd him in the first round and he will have studied him well. Silva is a BJJ but has not used used his submission skills. Silva relies on his striking and Muay Thai to finish his fight. Look for Evans game plan to try to tire Silva out in the clinch with his wrestling background and athleticism in the first two rounds. Evans will bring it to the mat in the 3rd for ground and pound decision victory or TKO. You might think there is great betting value in Thiago Silva +175 because of KO power. Dana White may be looking ahead a big draw PPV for Evans and Rampage after he films the A Team. Dana aint "No Sucka Fool" and has chosen a fighter Evans matches up well with for a rebound victory.
