Jon Jones an even bigger favorite now at UFC 128
Will UFC 128 on March 19 in Newark be the coronation of Jon "Bones" Jones? Oddsmakers think so, what with Jones opening up as the big favorite (-155) for his light heavyweight title shot against Mauricio "Shogun" Rua.
Bettors seem to agree with that line from Bodog.com. As of the time of this post, Jones is now -200 (bet $200 to win $100). That means lots of the early money has been placed on Jones, causing the oddsmakers to adjust the line.
Rua, the champion, is at +160, which makes for a great value bet, if you're into that kind of thing.
