    I expect Islam to strikes a lot more in this fight.

    Sounds about right.

    Tbh I don't think Dos Anjos has a chance in hell.

    I don't even know what these odds fully mean, but I see a lot of people find it interesting so I post them lol

    I don't gamble.

    I hope not. That's one thing I don't like about Islam corner. Makhachev wants to strike but they keep telling him to wrestle.

    US betting is different than Europe's, but iirc;

    To win at least 100 dolar with betting on Islam, you need to put minimum 330 dolar, so you can only win 100 dolar in return + the money you bet before.

    If you put 100 dolar to RDA, and if RDA wins, you will win 265 dolar, if you put more, you can win even more.

    It's not complicated.

    -330 Means you have to bet 330 dollars to win 100 dollars.

    +265 means you win that much for betting a 100.

    Odds are undervaluing Makhachev.

    This is the best price he's opened at since he fought Gleison Tibau, yet his opponent has spent two of his last three fights being controlled for half the fight by opponents who haven't demonstrated anywhere near the kind of grappling prowess of Makhachev.

    Islams going to close at least -500

    That’s not right. -400 means to u need to put 400 to win 100.

    Yeah, but RDA, even a washed up RDA, will be the best competition Islam has faced in the ring.

    I've never bet on sports in my life but I always check the odds. I always found it interesting.

    Wake up call for Dos Anjos

    according to oddsmakers -- he needs to learn how to fight, and quick
