UFC 88 Betting Odds: Rousimar Palhares vs Dan Henderson

By Paul Sunday, August 31, 2008
Rousimar Palhares(+180) vs Dan Henderson (-200)

I preferred Palhares at +200 but he's still a decent dog bet for this event. He's not going to knock Dan out or win on the feet, but his striking isn't pitiful and his ability to finish fights with submissions is undeniable. Dan's got a few more options to win but, both fighters are finishers and the odds are off due to "Toquinho" being almost completely unknown. He's a very tough match up for anyone and in Hendo's case one of his greatest strengths control on the ground will be nullified. Palhares should win this fight 40-50% of the time, he's that dangerous and the current odds provide great value...That value may get better as the fight gets closer.

Prediction: Palhares via submission (watch those legs Dan)
Bet: 100 to win 180

Unfortunately, I ran out of legal wagering options...Thank god for Daily Fantasy Sports and the much needed addition of MMA drafts.
