Edgar opens as 10-1 favorite over Penn

by Chris Palmquist |
 

On July 7th at the TUF 19 Finale, BJ Penn and Frankie Edgar will square off for the third time, this time at featherweight. Having won the first two fights, Edgar opened in the sports book as a huge favorite. BestFightOdds.com posted the first lines today:

Frankie Edgar: -1050

BJ Penn: +550

For those unfamiliar with betting on mixed martial arts, Edgar at -1050 means that a bet of $1050.00 will only pay $100 should you win. However a $100.00 bet on BJ Penn will earn you $550.00

I think BJ is going to get his ass kicked, but 10:1 odds against him is bananas.

Worst 01er troll ever. I challenge anyone to bump a thread he's posted in in which he wasn't attempting to be an antagonistic cunt.But the UG has gotten worse, right? Hilarious. The only thing this chick likes is hate.

Oh I didn't see this post - yeah those ridiculous online odds were clearly way out of whack.The odds you posted are about where 5dimes opened up with and seem very reasonable.

Yup - just like many of us said, these odds were completely bogus.The line opened at -350/+250 at 5dimes, before going all the way up to -1500!! That very likely indicates some whale put massive money on Frankie.The bookies themselves clearly never viewed Frankie as a legit -1000 guy, and neither does the betting public at large. The line is already headed back to where it opened.For those who got Penn at +700 on 5dimes you lucked out big time. It's already possible to arbitrage with the Bovada -650 line.

How the worm has turned. BJ was over -1000 during the first Edgar fight, and still a huge favorite in the rematch.

BJ has no shot, he could be 2000 and it'd be a suckers bet.Penn fans need to let it go.
