Rich Franklin (-500) vs Jason MacDonald (+400)

Everyone seems to be looking past this fight, DON'T. This has the most potential to be a shocker on the main card and the best potential for a profitable underdog bet. The odds have Rich Franklin as a significant favorite at -500 and Jason Macdonald at +400. I definitely this Macdonald has a better than 20% shot to win this fight. I believe MacDonald wins this fight 35-40% of the time, a definite +EV bet. If you open a new account BetUS.com they will give you a $50 FREE BET, this is the time to use it.

One of Franklin's biggest strengths is his size at 185...McDonald is even bigger, with a better reach, and a superior ground game (good night Leben). Rich will still have a distinct advantage in the standup, but to me it will be interesting to see how he responds to the 2nd loss of his career. I don't want to take anything away from Rich as a Champ or a top tier fighter, but something tells me he is coming into this fight with little respect for his opponent, which is always dangerous. Time to give the dog a bone...MacDonald by submission 2nd round.
