Rousey opens as more than 7 to 1 favorite over Zingano

Monday, April 22, 2013

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.
