    I don't know much about odds, I just know that if you put something down and the guy wins, you win. I don't do sports betting, was just saying that Jones is the one I think will win.

    I will put some cash on Rashad in Vegas.

    Depends if you think Rashad should be that big of an underdog.

    I have only bet when I went to events live in Vegas. Last time was 130. I was really confident that Stann was going to beat Santiago so I bet to make 200 profit on it. Then I looked at the odds for Thiago Alves vs Rick Story, and thought they were off considering the streaks each had been on at the time. Alves was rightfully the favorite, but I didn't think he deserved to be as big a favorite as the odds dictated, so I put my perceived profit off of Stann on a bet on Story. Ended up working well.

    Betting on a 5/1 ON (-500) favourite in a prize fight is daft! Too much risk betting $100 to win $20 when it's a fist fight you're betting on!!!

    At 4/1 (+400) then I guess there is a bit of reward for Rashad but really, Jones is a decent favourite for a good reason (he's most probably gonna win!), so the best bet on this fight is not betting!
