    Retarded odds. Aldo should be -300 at minimum. I'll be betting some bank if the odds are this close.

    The odds will definitely change closer to the fight. But for now, based on caliber of opposition alone, Aldo SHOULD have betting odds way in his favor.

    Reminds me of Shogun/Jones and how everyone was outraged that Jones was the favorite

    Huh.

    There is money to be made here...

    My heart is saying Aldo. My head...probably Aldo. -155 is crazy.

    Excellent. Some easy money to be made early. No doubt in my mind the odds will be -200 for McGregor once the fight closes near.

    This was confusing. I had to think about this a little before concluding that your comparison makes zero sense.

    Shogun was the established champion who was an underdog. Here, McGregor, the young contender is the underdog. Aldo is rightly the favorite and almost everyone agrees (though to differing levels).

    Basically, you should just said this reminds you of a time when someone was favored, but everyone was outraged.

    i got in on aldo at -175, and i also thought it was a steal and the odds would swing wildly. but i think a lot of people believe in conor, it might prevent the odds from moving much.

    how do you figure? -160 are really good odds if you think a guy is a heavy favorite.

    Even though I think McGregor will win, I may consider throwing some cheese on Aldo.

    Ya, if you think Aldo is one of the best P4P fighters in teh world, then -160ish is pretty good money for betting on Aldo. I'd figure he'd be -220 or something but people beleive the McGregor hype.
    And of course the line makers don't set the lines based on who is likely to win or how easy the win will be. They set the line to get equal action on both sides.

    Overhyped boring point fighters. No one cares. This is why UFC is dying.
