A third and hopefully decisive matchup between UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard has opened as a pick 'em bout.
Noted MMA oddsmaker and frequent radio guest Joey Oddessa told MMAjunkie.com Radio he's set the initial line at -115 for both fighters.
The opening line likely will be picked up by the major sportsbooks and will fluctuate as money comes in on each fighter.
"Now for the third meeting between the two, I opened the bout a pick 'em -115 again, and the early support has been all Edgar. Edgar is currently -130 betting favorite in the trilogy fight.
"I always say the money doesn't lie. As a fan of money and the truth, I think Edgar may not lose a round of the rematch, but people will still find reason to bet Maynard after they continue to watch the preview highlight shows leading up to the event."
