    Here are betting lines for these 3 fights atm. I just don't see how Jones is -750 vs Gustafsson. Bones is 18-1, Gust is 15-1. Should Bones be that heavy of a favorite? My parlay is gonna be Jones, Renan, Khabib.

    *TiP when betting on MMA. Never bet way in advance, fighters always get injured in mma and you lose your money when they pull out. I tend to bet night of the weigh ins, plus it helps to see how the fighters look after cutting*.


    Khabib "The Eagle" Nurmagomedov -260
    Pat "Bam Bam" Healy +200


    Renan Barao -650
    Eddie Wineland +425


    Jon "Bones" Jones -750
    Alexander "The Mauler" Gustafsson +475

    can't believe gustafsson is that big of a dog.

    If mousasi fought Jones it would probably be closer

    All the people who bet against jones when he was -400,-500 and lost their money are now putting money on jones so it's driving up the price.

    The lines aren't about whose going to win. It's about where the money goes. People are putting their money on Jones.

    Jones should be the favorite but i don't think he warrants a 7-1 line. That's crazy in a fight of this caliper.

    I think the odds look right considering their strengths and weaknesses. Since when do you lose money if one of the fighters pulls out of a fight? Never heard that before.

    What do you mean you lose your money when they pull out? You just get refunded...

    I would NEVER bet on Khabib, you'll see, Healy will once again be the spoiler.

    Really? That doesn't seem right.

    So if $100 million is bet on a fight and it gets cancelled, then nobody gets their money back?

    I think Healy will get smoked, honestly.

    Speed kills.
