Obviously Baltar had dealings with the Cylons, especialaly when it came to Tylium suppplies.

I think he got wind of the Cylon plan and tried to make the best deal to save his own arse and being an opportunist, tried to make a deal on the side too.
Exactly. He felt the Colonies could not survive what the Cylons were planning, so he sold out his own people for "survival". Instead of standing up for his own race, he grovelled at the altar of Baltar. The Cylons, of course, had no intention of being true to their bargain. To them, Baltar was what Lenin referred to as an "useful idiot".
