UFC Fight Night 84: Latest Vegas odds, lines and betting guide for 'Silva vs Bisping'

Get a detailed breakdown of the betting lines for UFC Fight Night 84, which is set to hit O2 Arena in London, England, this weekend (Sat., Feb. 27, 2016), including best bets, underdogs, favorites, and much more!

Per Haljestam-USA TODAY Sports

He went up the waterspout and now he's across the pond.

Former UFC Middleweight champion Anderson "The Spider" Silva returns to action for the first time in more than 12 months this Saturday afternoon (Feb. 27, 2016) when he takes on Michael Bisping in UFC Fight Night 84's main event, which takes place inside O2 Arena in London, England, airing live online via Fight Pass.

Fellow 185-pound standouts Gegard Mousasi and Thales Leites helm the co-main event, with Tom Breese vs. Keita Nakamura and Francisco Rivera vs. Brad Pickett rounding out the all-online card.

It's a decent line up, chock-full of budding European talent. Let's see what we can wring out of it.

**Before we start, let it be known that last week's judging was awful and that Reneau-Garbrandt parlay should have put me in the black.**

UFC Fight Night 84 Odds For The Undercard:

Makwan Amirkhani (-190) vs. Mike Wilkinson (+165)
Davey Grant (-175) vs. Marlon Vera (+155)
Scott Askham (-335) vs. Chris Dempsey (+275)
Arnold Allen (-320) vs. Yaotzin Meza (+260)
Krzysztof Jotko (-160) vs. Brad Scott (+140)
Rustam Khabilov (-255) vs. Norman Parke (+215)
Daniel Omielanczuk (-110) vs. Jarjis Danho (-115)
Thibault Gouti (-135) vs. Teemu Packalén (+115)
David Teymur (-130) vs. Martin Svensson (+110)

Thoughts: The key to the betting guide’s salvation is as un-entertaining as it is difficult to spell: Krzysztof Jotko is your man.

The Polish grinder has the kind of relentless takedown assault that requires either airtight takedown defense or excellent scrambling to deal with. Scott, unfortunately, possesses neither. He’s going to struggle to stay upright and, even there, likely doesn’t have the power to slow Jotko’s offense or put him away.

It’s not going to be fun to watch, but making some money from Jotko’s wrestlefest should ease the pain.

As far as the rest of the undercard, a pittance on Yaotzin Meza might be a good idea. Allen was two rounds down in his Octagon debut before pulling off the comeback submission and Meza’s a fairly solid grinder. You could also parlay Rustam Khabilov -- who figures to be better than Norman Parke in most areas of the game -- with Jotko for solid odds.

UFC Fight Night 84 Odds For The Main Card:

Anderson Silva (-310) vs. Michael Bisping (+255)
Gegard Mousasi (-325) vs. Thales Leites (+265)
Tom Breese (-1100) vs. Keita Nakamura (+700)
Francisco Rivera (-220) vs. Brad Pickett (+180)

Thoughts: Nakamura as a 7:1 underdog seems a bit excessive, but I can’t bring myself to pull the trigger. If you want a safe favorite, though, they don’t get much better than Mousasi. Leites’ resurgence is a product of both improved wrestling and improved confidence on the feet. He has not undergone the sort of striking renaissance he would need to shut down Gegard’s killer jab. Further, he willingly brawled with Tim Boetsch for far longer than was wise, which casts doubt over his ability to stick to a gameplan. Gegard might be an even safer parlay stuffer than Khabilov, so if there’s a slightly-favored fighter you’re keen on, he's worth a look.

UFC Fight Night 84 Best Bets:

  • Parlay -- Krzysztof Jotko and Rustam Khabilov: Bet $60 to make $75.60
  • Single bet -- Yaotzin Meza: Bet $20 to make $52
