Jon Jones vs Lyoto Machida Betting Odds and Opportunities

By Paul Friday, December 09, 2011
Is there something the betting public knows that you and I don't...is Lyoto sick?  I don't think so, this seems to be a case of the fan favorite pulling odds that don't fit the fight.  You can can go to fight metric and look at stats...it's even there.  You can look at past performances and common opponents... that give some edge to Bones. But, what justifies Lyoto Machida as a 4 to 1 underdog in any fight?

I really like Jon Jones and I think this is a very winnable match-up for him, but when it comes to betting, I would never put money on him as a heavy favorite against such a dangerous and talented fighter. However you look at this fight, if you plan on making a bet and like to play the odds you have to put some kind of money on Machida with the current betting line at +425!

Currently the betting odds on Jones and Machida have seen the biggest spread at BetOnline Sportsbook, with the odds on Machida nearly doubling over the last month.  BetOnline has experienced record growth in the last two months and with that comes a lot of new bettors who pile on behind favorites and create these huge swings in betting lines.

Obviously don't put your whole bankroll on this or any bet, but these are the type of opportunities that sharps are always looking for.
