UFC 166 odds: Prop bets and lines for 'Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3' PPV in Houston explained

Scott Halleran

The first time they fought, Junior dos Santos ended their fight in 64 seconds. When Cain Velasquez earned his rematch, he used all five rounds to exact revenge. That makes it hard to predict how (and when) the UFC 166 main event will end, but if you can, spoils await.

The latest odds and betting lines for UFC 166: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3" were posted last night by our own Patty Stumberg, who did a good job of crunching the numbers for all the main card fighters, as well as those chaps getting their hands dirty in preliminary action this Sat. night (Oct. 19, 2013) in Houston, Texas.

With an event that has garnered as much attention as UFC 166, I understand how the standard underdog vs. favorite style of mixed martial arts (MMA) wagering may not cut the mustard for some of you hardcore bettors. That's why I've asked my fiscal friends at Bovada to hook us up with the propositions for the UFC 166 headliner pitting Cain Velasquez (champion) against Junior dos Santos (challenger).

Some tasty numbers there, Maniacs.

As always, wagering is only recommended when it's done for fun and shouldn't be employed as a way to make money. In addition, you should only bet what you can afford to lose. With that in mind, what proposition bet stands out to you here?

Hell, I might throw a finsky on the draw at 70/1, just because.
