I believe I saw a thread on a forum where Rios is -950?

If that's correct, how would anyone not throw some loot on Alvarado?  Brandon Rios is not a 10-1 favorite over any fighter.

rios is one of my favorite fighters, but if you watched the first fight than you will know that when alvarado used his boxing skills he had great success, it's when he went toe to toe that he had problems, as in reality no one other that lucas matthysse can goe toe to toe with rios, I actually favor alvarado in this fight, I will be rooting for rios all the way, but after his first loss mike will be 100 percent focused on fighting according to the game plan, which will obviuosly be to box and if he sticks to it then will win, this is another fight that I will not bet on, just voicing my opinion, as to me this is a toss up. but I do favor alvarado 55 percent to 45 type of thing

Someone posted a line like that on ESB. As far as I can tell, it doesn't exist though.

-950$$   are you serious. I think Alvarado was winning that fight before he got layed out.

Which way do you think the line moves as the fight approaches? I want to take Alvarado. Should I wait?

Does anybody remember the odds on the first fight? Is there a reliable place to find old odds?

Also, aside from the moneyline, what were the over/under odds and proposition bets on the first fight. I remember at one point Rios was a -150 and then jumped to -180 for the first fight (moneyline).

that's not a rumor he was cut up @ a shitty bar called MGMs here in Denver I know Mike and used to spar w him @20th str. Gym. I'm sure after he got cut Shann and Delgado checked his behind and he prob had a good camp. I think Rios biggest advantage is his quality of sparring but I can't bet against Mikes heart never mind shady behind Bob Arums love of rematches I'll be there Sat night garbage gonna be fun!

Bob already has the scorecards ready in case it goes to a decision. We all know rios wins this fight as long as he's standing if it goes to a decision
