    Watching this video.....every single fighter took Lawler to beat RDA. While in this forum it was a pick em fight. And the bookies had them almost identical odds. Whenever I watch these videos the fighters seem to always go with the more known fighter and cant seem to pick up when a fighter is on the up and one is on the downhill

    That really depends on the fan. But a knowledgeable fan should be impartial, while fighters may not be.

    Plus a lot of fighters are really dumb.

    fighters have bias that oddsmakers and fans don't have.

    True.....but the normal pick is he is bigger, so he will win even when they are neutral.
