Why isn't Conor at least a 3 to 1 betting favorite against Khabib?

    Most experts would agree that Conor is a heavy favorite going into this fight yet it seems betting odds are almost even for both fighters.

    Are they really predicting Khabib to upset Conor because he hasn't been active for a long time?

    Neither guy winning here would be an upset.

    Both are very good at their given strengths, both have holes in their game.

    Nobody knows for certain who takes this. That's what makes it such an intriguing fight.

    If any book offered those odds, they'd go broke. It's like people that put money against Mayweather...people that bet with their heart and hopes and not their heads are what keep the Vegas lights on.

    This is really the only thing that needs to be said. No matter what the odds are or who they favor in the end, this is definitely not a fight that I'd put money on.
