UFC 159 odds: Prop bets and lines for 'Jones vs. Sonnen' in Newark explained

Scott Cunningham

Not many mixed martial arts (MMA) fans expect the UFC 159 main event between Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen to go to a five-round decision. But how much money would you make if you bet it did? That answer and more props, below.

The latest odds and betting lines for UFC 159: "Jones vs. Sonnen" 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.

See all the pluses and minuses right here.

With an event that has garnered as much attention as UFC 159, 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 compadres at Bovada to hook us up with the propositions for the UFC 159 headliner pitting Jon Jones (champion) against Chael Sonnen (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 66/1, just because.
