Meet the new guard, same as the old guard?

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champion and The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 2 winner Rashad Evans returns to action this Saturday evening (April 16, 2016) against Brazilian bruiser Glover Teixeira in the main event of UFC on FOX 19, which will air live and free from Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida. Lyoto Machida takes on Dan Henderson once again in the co-main event, while Khabib Nurmagomedov returns from his two-year absence to face prospect -- and last-minute replacement -- Darrell Horcher.

It's a solid card overall, one ripe with the potential for terrific finishes. It's also ripe for moneymaking, so let's get to it:

UFC on FOX 19 Odds For The Undercard:

Beneil Dariush (-160) vs. Michael Chiesa (+140)
Raquel Pennington (-170) vs. Bethe Correia (+150)
Santiago Ponzinibbio (-155) vs. Court McGee (+125)
Cub Swanson (-125) vs. Hacran Dias (+105)
John Dodson (-525) vs. Manny Gamburyan (+405)
Michael Graves (-125) vs. Randy Brown (-105)
Islam Makhachev (-185) vs. Drew Dober (+155)
Oluwale Bamgbose (-180) vs. Cezar Ferreira (+150)
Omari Akhmedov (-165) vs. Elizeu Zaleski (+135)

Thoughts: You know how I’ll sometimes pin all my hopes on one fighter? And how that backfires spectacularly almost every single time?

Buckle up, kids, because we’re doing it again.

Michael Graves should be far, far more favored than -125. He’s a strong enough wrestler to mostly match a beast like Kamaru Usman and he’s fighting a guy whose ground game is still in its larval stage. Brown’s one hope of victory, the proverbial puncher’s chance, is horribly unlikely; Jason Jackson did everything short of running Graves over with his car and the ATT product still managed to turn the tables and tap him.

Jump on Graves before it’s too late.

As far as the rest of the undercard, Pennington, Makhachev, and Zaleski all seem like decent bets. The first two bring major grappling advantages to bear, while Zaleski packs a ton of power.

UFC on FOX 19 Odds For The Main Card:

Glover Teixeira (-220) vs. Rashad Evans (+180)
Lyoto Machida (-355) vs. Dan Henderson (+295)
Khabib Nurmagomedov (-1050) vs. Darrell Horcher (+550)
Rose Namajunas (-225) vs. Tecia Torres (+185)

Thoughts: The main card’s a little short on bargains unless you’re willing to take a risk on Torres. "The Tiny Tornado" already owns a win over Namajunas and has some fairly solid takedown defense, so a pittance on her wouldn’t be amiss.

UFC on FOX 19 Best Bets:

  • Parlay -- Islam Makhachev and Michael Graves: Bet $60 to make $106.20
  • Parlay -- Raquel Pennington and Elizeu Zaleski: Bet $30 to make $81.90
  • Single bet -- Tecia Torres: Bet $30 to make $55.50

Hey, what else are you going to do on a Saturday afternoon/evening ... have a social life? Screw that. See you there, Maniacs!
