I wonder what the betting odds are on something like that.

If we give 20/1 odds for each split decision (prob not too far off from vig free odds), we'd be looking at something like 160k/1 to happen in a row.

I was giving a shorthand example. If you want to get technical, it would depend on each of the fight's probability to go to a decision and then extrapolate the odds of it being a split decision either way; so some fights might have a much higher likelihood than others.

The judges are not the same for each fight either, so it would be pure speculation to guess who it is and what kind of bias they have.

It would be interesting to see the odds of a split decision occurring after one just occurred.

If 1 in 20 decisions goes to a split decision, perhaps the probability of a SD immediately after a SD is higher than 1/20. That's pretty much my point.

But yeah, I'm not sure how much the judges change fight to fight.

Also this says is the scoring system makes impossible to consistently pick the winner.
