I know it's -1200, but seems like some easy money.

Can anyone make a case against Silva winning besides a lucky punch or a fixed fight? I can't.

Unlike Forrest, Bonnar has a chin, but still lacks power. I could possibly see Stephan grinding this fight to a decision. Not sure of he'd win it, but you have to remember, out of all of the Big-Named guys that Jon Bones Jones has destroyed, Bonnar gave him his toughest fight.

Well you wouldn't you'd take out a loan from the bank for 130,000 to win a quick 10k.

I'll also add, to be honest, I think Nogueira and/or Texeira are just as much of a lock as Silva is over Bonnar so if you're gonna drop big cash, drop it on Nogueira so you risk less.  Nog will pump Herman.

I'm surprised that Nog is only -300. IMO they are a dif class of fighter, maybe 2! He has a punchers chance. But Nog is not dumb. He will want a dramatic finish for his fans

This is true but keep in mind -300 means he has a 75% chance of winning which is pretty accurate according to my models.  So there's no value in the line but clearly he's gonna win so it's a safe bet to make MMA wise.

Are you a idiot? Cause you can always walk in a bank an get 130,000 it's very easy ESP when you tell them is for a wager! Btw Anderson is my fav fighter of all time and hope he smashes  sb but would never lay 13-1
