Not at all surprised the sharpest book on the board now has Edgar at -150. Taking Henderson at +110, +105 was always foolhardy.

And Sharpstick, did you open Frankie as the dog?

Yes.

Took some bigger than max bets on him as well on that price.  Which was the plan.  It didn't last as long as I anticipated, but unless people are content at betting Henderson at -110 (which we have taken some) it'll set up for a nice win for the book when Henderson wins.

The best price on Edgar is currently in Vegas.

Madman.  Yeah I guess you figured you wouldn't be able to sustain that line for a very long time.

Good luck tomorrow if you have any other personal bets going!

If you'd like to change the wager to he will be +105 at a book in Vegas, I'll take any amount you could possibly imagine as your action.

my book www.caliente.com.mx now has frankie at -200 from -130 yesterday.

you can get bendo at +160.

i agree, sharp

i thought the line would be frankie -150 even though the fight result would end up being closer to even money.

frankie -200 is a bad line.

I took benson at +102 at pinny 2 weeks ago because i  thought i was not the only 1 who could see the size and overall talent diff. in these 2 fighters.

I am shocked and still am that the line went up to 150 before settling around 135.

I am 110% convinced that many bettors were fam. with the former champ but were NOT very fam. with Ben Henderson. 

Amazing considering Ben won his 3 fights in the UFC leading up to this title shot in DOMINATING fashion while Frankie, bless his heart, was life and death at times in the last 2 years in his fights.

Ben totally had a huge advantage in recent performances in the cage comparing the 2, so it had to be a issue of  the somewhat unknown towards Ben.

I saw good value at +102  after i saw BEN just walk through  his last 3 UFC opp. and looked great doing it vs this LESS than DOMINATING champion.

O well not enough bettors saw it except sharp and well a few others.
