Rich Franklin Betting Odds - Too Good To Pass Up

By Paul Wednesday, October 10, 2007
Alright I've put my bet in today. I had been considering a bet on Silva if his odds improved, but the money is still floating his way at most books. Today Bookmaker posted odds of +185 for Rich Franklin.

It's just too good of a value for me to pass up. Franklin is a very smart fighter training with an excellent team and he will definitely have an effective game plan ready for this fight. His probability of winning is much better than the 35% chance Bookmaker is listing him at. For insight into those odds here's a CBSSPORTS article discussing rematches at length (Thanks Ufcmania for spotting this one)

The other line I'm keeping an eye on is a chalk bet on Brandon Vera. The odds tightened up by about 10 points this week with Vera currently sitting at -175. I would prefer to enter this one around -150, but I'll likely bite at -165. This is another fight I'm really looking forward to both of these fighters have a lot on the line and questions to answer.

**update Bradon Vera's odds hit -160 at BetUS and my bet is in.

  1. How many times do you get Franklin @ underdog odds? This is almost a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

    Also, Vera is -165 at BetUS right now, but I prefer the OVER 1.5 @ -110. Unless Vera proves to have a glass jaw, the fight's going the distance.
