    All the fights have 1 guy so heavily favored is a little crazy IMO and some are the main fights, how can u take a fight that has chandler vs brooks seriously when chandler is a 9-1 favorite, and Ortiz is a big underdog , page is a 2-1 which is probally right on but I dunno. I feel like with out alveraz chandler headling, this card is just a basic free tv card that they're trying to squeeze money out of the name value more than actually good competitive fights. thoughts?

    What the fuck do the oddsmakers have to do with anything? The odds makers move the lines in accordance with how the public bets.

    lopsided odds = perceived lopsided fights. the oddsmakers don't make this shit up out of thin air.

    The public has boosted the Chandler line. The bookies are probably actually taking a hit on that one (unless Brooks wins), they set Chandler as too low of a favorite initially.
