UFC Fight Night 150 odds, best predictions: MMA insider picks Jacare vs. Hermansson, Hardy vs Smoliakov

UFC Fight Night 150 is quickly approaching and features a highly-anticipated main event between Ronaldo Souza and Jack Hermansson. Both are coming off one of the best performances in their careers, and one of the top-10 middleweights will be positioned for a potential title shot after they meet Saturday. The 13-bout UFC Fight Night 150 card kicks off with the preliminary matches starting at 7 p.m. ET from sunny Fort Lauderdale, followed by the main card at 9 p.m. ET. In his last bout, the fourth-ranked Souza (26-6-1) rallied to knock out former champ Chris Weidman in the third round of a fight he was likely losing on the scorecards. Hermansson (19-4), ranked No. 10, submitted former World of Series Fighting champ David Branch in 49 seconds in March. Souza is a -200 favorite (risk $200 to win $100), while Hermansson is a +170 underdog (risk $100 to win $170) in the latest Souza vs. Hermansson odds. In the co-main event, former NFL player Greg Hardy faces Dmitrii Smoliakov in a heavyweight fight. Hardy, who's 3-1 in his UFC career, is a -330 favorite in the latest Hardy vs. Smoliakov odds.

Before you make any UFC Fight Night 150 picks, listen to what SportsLine MMA expert Kyle Marley has to say. Marley won the first-ever "ToutMaster" UFC betting contest sponsored by MMAOddsBreaker and appears regularly on multiple MMA betting/DFS shows. He watches every single fight for every single UFC card and does extensive research before each event.

Over the past year, $100 bettors who have followed Marley's picks are up nearly $20,000. It's an astonishing cash rate that shows the depth of Marley's knowledge. 

Last week at UFC Fight Night 149, Marley advised SportsLine members that Alistair Overeem (-245) would win via technical knockout against Aleksei Oleinik (+200). That's exactly what happened as Overeem finished the fight in the first round. Marley also accurately predicted a unanimous-decision victory for Islam Makhachev (-450) against Arman Tsarukyan (+360) in the co-main event.

What's more, at the epic UFC 236 card two weeks ago, Marley told SportsLine members that underdog Dustin Poirier (+185) would win a close decision against Max Holloway (-225) in a bout for the interim lightweight title. Marley was on point again, as Poirier took the upper hand in a classic and close battle between two of the UFC's top pound-for-pound fighters. Also, in the UFC 236 co-main event, Marley called Israel Adesanya's (-175) narrow decision win against the fierce Kelvin Gastelum (+155) in a bout that is an early candidate for Fight of the Year. 

Now, with UFC Fight Night 150 fast approaching, Marley has carefully studied every matchup on the 13-fight card, identified the best value in the UFC odds and released his MMA picks for every single fight. He's sharing them only over at SportsLine. 

Marley knows the main event winner has a chance to enter a crowded title picture in a stacked division. Souza, 39, is an expert grappler who is widely considered one of the top UFC fighters who has yet to compete for a title. He is coming off one of the most impressive performances of his career in a knockout victory over former champ Chris Weidman last November. The 30-year-old Hermansson is a versatile fighter whose stock is on the rise following a three-fight win streak. His last two wins have come from guillotine chokes, and he's just a month removed from his first-round victory over David Branch. You can only see Marley's Souza vs. Hermansson picks at SportsLine.

One of the UFC Fight Night 150 picks we'll share is that Marley is backing Jason Gonzalez (+120) to defeat veteran Jim Miller (-140) in an undercard lightweight matchup. 

The 35-year-old Miller (29-13) has lost five of his last six bouts, while Gonzalez (11-4) looks to bounce back from a submission loss to Gregor Gillespie in September. "Gonzalez is the more dangerous striker," Marley told SportsLine. "Miller is toward the end of his career. He is 1-5 in his last six fights and his one win was only 1:29 into the first round." Gonzalez has had only one fight reach the third round, and that was his very first career bout against Chris Camacho. He's lost two of his last three fights, but had won five straight prior to that.

Marley also has picks locked in for Souza vs. Hermansson, Hardy vs. Smoliakov and every other fight on this stacked UFC Fight Night 150 card. Those picks are only available at SportsLine.
