Velasquez opens as big favorite over Jones in potential superfight
It's not actually a scheduled bout yet, but that didn't keep book keepers from setting odds for a potential showdown between light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez:
As of today at overseas betting site "BetOnline.ag," Velasquez has opened as a (-275) favorite against Jones, who in turn gets the "underdog" rate of (+215). Simply put, for every $275 wagered on the heavyweight champ, you would earn $100. While a $100 bet on "Bones" would pocket you an extra $215.
This was likely spurred from a recent interview in which Jones stated that he was walking at around 230 lbs. and would like to do a super fight with the UFC heavyweight champion.
