    Default UFC on Fox 7 betting

    Question...Matt Brown is currently at +260 vs Jordan Mein. I just jumped all over this. Feels like this should be an even fight line despite Browns lay off. Am i way off here and missing something?

    I think it's probably because the guys in Vegas making the lines don't know the sport the way we do and Matt has a 4 fight win streak consisting of 4 UFC wins where as Mein is only riding a 3 fight streak with only 1 of them coming in the UFC's cage.

    To most peoples not sitting on an mma forum and some of those guys even lol MMA=UFC

    Refer to anyone who trains any discipline as a UFC fighter guy not a mixed martial artist/ fighter.
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.

    Should've posted this in my MMA Gambling thread.

    I haven't posted in it for the past one or two events because I didn't put anything down. Time is scarce, too.

    I would like to discuss this weekends event though.

    As for Brown/Mein, the odds for Brown are nice but I am expecting Mein to pull off the win here. I am not underestimating Brown but Mein is a young, hungry fighter on the rise.

    Betting odds do not equal a fighters chance to win a fight they equal out to the amount bookies expect people to bet on each fighter and they attempt to even them out.

    Cat has it right. The reason odds move up and down is because bookies are trying to make the right amount of money on each side so they make profit either way. The odds of not a indication of their honest belief of a fighters chance to win.

    Edit: those are great odds

    Congrats, Supe.

    I made a 12 pick parlay in which I won every single pick except for Brown/Mein.

    $1 yielded $86.26. I made a minuscule bet through a few parlays of $7.50 that would have made around $275 had Mein would have won.
