After the rumors leaked out, we quickly got opening odds for a possible boxing match between UFC legend Anderson Silva and YouTube sensation Logan Paul. As it was, Logan was listed as a -200 betting favorite with the combat sports veteran posted up as a +160 underdog. Well, those odds didn’t last very long as an influx of wagers on “The Spider” not only flipped that betting line, but also extended it even wider.

SportsBetting.ag now has Silva listed as a healthy -240 betting favorite, with a winning $100 wager seeing a return of $141.67. As for Paul, he is now residing further into underdog territory than Anderson was, now sporting a plus line of +190. That means a $100 gamble on Logan could potentially score you $290 altogether. I’m not sure if I can recall ever seeing such a sizable flip in the odds. It sounds like someone made a boo-boo when setting the initial betting lines, and now there are some mighty excited gamblers floating around out there.
