Rousey opens as more than 7 to 1 favorite over Zingano

by Chris Palmquist |

Although their bout is more than six months away, odds makers have already placed Ronda Rousey as a close to seven to one favorite over challenger Cat Zingano. Zingano won the opportunity to coach against Rousey on TUF 18 and fight her for the women's bantamweight championship when she defeated Miesha Tate at TUF 17 Finale.

Rousey is undefeated in her MMA career and has finished every opponent by arm bar in the first round, so it is no surprise she's the favorite. Today listed Rousey as a -765, meaning one would have to bet $765.00 to win $100.00. On the other hand with Zingano at +455, a $100.00 bet would win $455.00 should she be able to do what no else has and beat Rousey.

So many people think that Ronda is unstoppable. Just read any Facebook comments and it is a love fest no matter the subject is.She may be that good based on her years in high level judo competition and he camp now. My question is what happens if she does not get the bum rush, hip throw setup. I really think I saw something in her fights in the striking and getting hit department that showed weakness. Only time will tell. I will try making some money either way.

I'm gonna bet on Ronda if they're only giving her a negative 765 percent chance of winning. PROFIT

If say 100 guys like you "only" bet on one wild under dog once in their life, odds are they would still win more then they would lose, because of the lines they set up.

It's why the numerical value for the favorite is always bigger than the underdog. You're not getting the value you deserve when you bet the underdog (limiting the house's losses) and ditto if you always bet on the favorite. It always favors the house.

They dont lose money on MMA, because of this logic lol. Its called the long run. Anything can happen, but over time their lines are gonna beat you every time.

Well, this is still better than Cris Cyborg vs Fiona Muxlow:Cris Cyborg (-3000) vs Fiona Muxlow (+1300).Someone would have to bet US$ 3,000.00 on Cyborg to earn US$ 100.00. US$ 100.00 on Fiona Muxlow would earn US$ 1,300.00, in case she won.Cat showed some really poor takedown defense in her fight against Miesha. I am assuming Ronda will win. BUT... I will bet some money on Cat.
