UFC 109: Shopping the betting lines for Nate Marquardt

By Paul Wednesday, February 03, 2010
Nate Marquardt is facing vetran grappler Chael Sonnen, in what could be one of the most exciting fights of the show. Nate is now a heavy favorite, his betting line opened around -270 and have moved to a very wide range from -525 at Bodog to -370 at 5Dimes. It's pretty rare to see fight odds this spread out the week of an event. I think it's indicative of how this fight has been marketed and how the whims of the betting public are effected.

For those planning on betting this is a prime example of why you need to shop odds. Marquart should be a heavy favorite in this fight, but only one book is currently offering a line with value. If you like Nate in this fight get the odds offered at 5Dimes before they shoot up to -500.

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