Teixeira opens as almost 2-1 favorite over Rampage Jackson

by Chris Palmquist | source: The Underground

Today oddsmakers opened the books for UFC 153, and despite being a former lightheavyweight champion fighting a fighter in his second UFC bout, Quinton Rampage Jackson is the underdog to Glover Teixeira.

Rampage Jackson +155

Glover Teixeira -185.

For those unfamiliar with gambling in mixed martial arts, a positve number represents the underdog and a negative number the favorite. A $100.00 bet placed on Jackson would net the betttor $155.00, whereas a $185.00 bet on Teixeira would only net the bettor $100.00

Yea and Barnett is better than Mir, IMO. DC by TKO round 3.

can't believe someone would bet on mir when he's facing someone i doubt he could beat even if he was mentally tough, which he's clearly not.

Glover is solid. But put your money on 'Page if you want to make some more. (IMO)

Glover winning via Decision would be a good bet.
