You probably know by now that Anderson Silva is facing off with Stephan Bonnar in the main event of UFC 153. As soon as the fight was announced, there were all sorts of crazy rumors about what the betting line would look like. The first one that popped up was Bonnar at +5500, which is absolutely ludicrous. Today the real line dropped, and it's much closer to reality while still being completely lopsided:
As of right now, SportBet is the only site offering Silva under -1300, and two sites have him at -1350. Bonnar in the +700 to +850 range is about what should be expected. Despite what most are thinking, there IS a case for him to win. It's just not a very strong one. Is anyone willing to drop some coin on Bonnar here? I definitely wouldn't recommend it, but it wouldn't surprise me. People love to bet on big underdogs.
