    No question about Paige should be favored but very possible she loses a decision. Unreal odds.....

    Because the bookies want to make money and everyone is gonna bet on PVZ no matter what the odds are. Plus if they fought 15 times I still think PVZ wins all 15 of them....so ya.

    PVZ is -1500

    That being said some might definiltely say there is value on Alex b/c PVZ is still young and could slip up and get caught in a sub, but I wouldn't bet a lot on it.

    People are betting heavy on Paige because 1) People have no clue who Chambers is 2) she has every physical advantage in this match up 3) Chambers hasn't looked good inside the ufc

    Not to play MMA math but like others has said Chambers hasnt looked well and she was losing pretty handily to Curran before Curran gave her the armbar who PVZ finished in her debut. Chambers is a step down from Herrig.
    I mean she could get a hail mary sub but being from Team Alpha Male i think she'll be safe.

    Because Paige is the next "it" thing for the UFC and its been said they fix fights, so they will part the way for PVZ.

    Bookies know this bruh.

    Acceptable odds. Alex Chambers has nearly zero chance of winning, going by her Curran fight. And Paige's coaches aren't nearly as stupid as Currans are.

    The line is based on money wagered simple as that. Bookies want 50/50 action on every event because they make money on the juice and with 50/50 action they have no risk.

    They make an original opinion but the market sets the line.

    No jackass bookies set the opening line and that line moves based on money wagered. You shouldn't speak so matter of factly when you are not very smart.

    It's a bloated line. PVZ should be the favorite by a fairly large margin, but she gets sloppy sometimes and Chambers is tough and has some skills off her back.
