DC opens at -260 against Brock. Hoping r word money shortens that by fight night but it's still worth a bet at those odds imo. That's a guaranteed parlay stacker.

I think DC schools Lesnar, but -260 seems tight, to me. Didnít someone math out the UFC fight history, and determine that the underdogs are even more undervalued in the UFC than in other sports?

it used to be a license to print free money. if you knew anything about the sport at all you'd see insane value on every card. frankie edgar / bj penn 2 springs to mind. lol.

nowadays, occasionally you'll get insane odds like lamas being the underdog against knight or gunnar being the like +200 underdog against loving tumenov but it's a lot better generally

vegas is smartening up when it comes to mma but you'll still see some really weird lines for fighters that feel way unjust.

yeah it's very rare i'll say straight up 'that ain't right', even the massive upsets like ronda / holm that were spastically overvalued in retrospect had me, "knowledgeable mma guy," nodding along and going 'yeah, squash match'.

don't bet on mma. or if you do, underdogs.

is it just australia where we can place online bets for poo poo like "there will be a foul, it will be a dick kick, no points will be taken, but the fighter gets a timeout greater than 30 seconds"

nah you can place prop bets in any country at certain bookies. my uncle placed a bet in the 70s that they'd find water on mars and got 5million to one odds.

I saw this article that says Bovada opened at -300 for Cyborg and +230 for Nunes, with the headline I thought Nunes would be +750 or something

yeah. maybe a little generous to nunes. cyborg was able to consistently outpace and beat the poo poo out of holly holm for 5 rounds without showing any signs of gassing and nunes has to fight like a particularly timid monk tending a particularly delicate garden in order to bore us to death over five without dying of exhaustion.

another interesting line - rory is the +~200 underdog against gayhard. that's definitely worth a bet imo. old moose is way too inconsistent and rory's way too good for the odds to be quite that long.

Nunes wonít be cutting near as much at 145 though.
