The bookies as of late have had it right in who is the favorite and Rousey comes in big. The fight is not official as of yet but that doesn’t stop the bookies from getting a jump on the action.
Miesha Tate is the newly crowned champ and Ronda Rousey just lost the belt to Holly Holm. Of course Holly Holm lost the belt to Tate last weekend at UFC 196.
Currently the odds look like this.
Tate (Champ) +350 underdog
Rousey (Challenger) -500 favorite
Easy way to explain it is you have to bet a $100 on Tate to win $350 and bet $500 on Rousey to win $100
Rousey has been as high as a -900 to Tate’s +600 when they fought in 2013
Rousey has won both fights via armbar but in the second match up Tate was able to survive until the second round. At that time it was the first time anybody took Rousey that deep into a fight.
The bookies don’t think Tate will win but had a better chance this time around, if the fight happens.
