Oddsmakers Have Anderson As Steady Favorite Over Sonnen At -285 | UFC News

By Jamie McAllister
UFC 148 is just around the corner and all the talking will stop when Silva faces Sonnen for the second time.

The Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva is fired up more than ever before. He stated that he plans to send Sonnen to the emergency room and break his face and teeth. Silva also has the chance to extend his records for the most consecutive title defences which currently stands at nine, also the record for the most consecutive wins inside the UFC which currently stands at fourteen.

The challenger Sonnen at UFC 117 dominated Silva for four and a half rounds before falling victim to a late submission. Sonnen since then has gone on to defeat Brian Stann and Michael Bisping on his route back to the number one contender spot.

In the lead up the the UFC 148 main event Anderson Silva has remained the favorite. Oddsmaker Nick Kalikas of breaks down where the money is going.

“Most sportsbooks getting a little more action on Silva early on. Action is also coming in steady on Chael but not quite as much so line has shifted to -275 Silva. Going all the way back to last November, my opener was -240. I think we will see strong support come back in on Chael by fight day. Regardless of where line ends up most places will end up with near two way action on this fight.”

However since this correspondence, the line moved again to -285 Silva.

    Thats kinda low! People are gonna make a killing off of silva for the odds being that low, chael with no trt @ 16-1 equals chael getting his face smashed in!!

    • ?.?. says:

      You must of missed the article that said Chael has been approved by NSAC for TRT!!! Chael is going to win, will not be denied this time!!!

      You know nothing about betting…on a $1000 bet on Anderson you don’t even make 400 profit. There’s no money to be made on straight up bets here you have to bet when an how it is finished

      • Twotone says:

        How is 400 not worth it? Thats pretty good for most likely less than 25 mins of sitting on your ass watching a fight… You dont know shit about professional gambing because thats where the smart money is… Quick lesson You dont build a roll on the underdog

        • Tapitout21 says:

          What I’m saying is most of the people who bet on fights are casual gamblers (75% ish) they don’t have 1000 to risk just to make 400…professional gambling is a whole other topic

    @ ?.?. yea but it won’t be over the top like 16 to 1 dumbass! did u miss that part? trt treatment is just to get you back to normal, but low life dry humping faggots like chael use more then enough to go pass normal making it into a steroid and thats when your a cheater!! and its funny how your argument is based off of admitting chael only has a chance to beat silva if he’s on something, HOW FUCKING SAD IS THAT AS U BEING A FAN AND CHAEL BEING A FIGHTER!! JUST FUCKING SAD!!

  3. Bjj BB says:

    @ Tapitout21, r you crazy!! when you compare the odds to every other silva fight to this one its very low, every other fight every1 knew he was going to win but the odds were so high that they still kinda held back a lil, now they know he’s gonna win again but they can risk more cause the odds are so low for a silva fight, now if your a professional then 400$ may not seem like a lot but a professional won’t be trying to make 400$ he’d be betting in the high thousands!! now if your just some guy betting, then 400$ is a lot when it will come so easy, trust me people that never had 1000 to bet on silva been still betting on him cause they know he’s gonna win no matter how high the odds were, now that its so low there gonna risk more even tho they don’t have da money to back it.

    Let me break it down for you ignorant folks. When it comes to betting if you bet on the underdog and you win you will win more obviously. Well the betting websites out there are using reverse psychology to broaden the profits. So basically they feel sivla will lose so they put him as the favorite so they can bet on Chael and make more money off of it. This is very common. I cant predict the future but I am willing to bet my car on this fight silvas taking this home.

  5. BT says:

    Oddsmakers want equal dollar amounts bet on each so they can can make their profits (the vig) virtually risk free.

  6. Bjj BB says:

    @ BOB, my point is it dont matter what you think or any1 thinks or what kind of game the odd makers are trying to Play with people, when it comes to anderson silva people are gonna risk alot even tho the odds are high, but for this fight its kinda low so there gonna risk twice as much.
