    I’m doing a little exercise to see if I can find a correlation between two variables. I’ll share once I can confirm but I wanna keep it to myself right now in hopes to eliminate bias in this exercise.

    Can you guys name large (steeper than -200, for instance) favorites that have turned out to be very square?

    For the purpose of this exercise, let’s try and limit the number of fighters who lost via a quick KO or SUB or such. I’m more so looking for large favorites who have been outclassed from beginning to end. Example: Jason Knight versus Gabriel Benitez

    He closed at -219, so yeah he was large enough of a favorite. But Klose won by split decision

    Could count as a early KO but if we are talking domination and big gap in the odds
    Holm vs Rousey

    Brazilian Cowboy and Sanchez both won round 1 of their respective fights in 10-8 fashion. All others area applicable, though!

    Moreno vs Pettis maybe? The odds weren’t that wide though.

    Unibet has a longterm bet on Gus to get the LHW belt before 2019, +400.
    Essentially that is DC vs Gus 2, if oezdemir doesn't spoil the party
