    Looks like Islam is moving to a 4:1 favorite now...for most of the camp he was about 3:1 favorite.

    Wonder why?

    Any other interesting late movements for UFC 259?

    Odds makers move lines, mostly, to try and get even money on both sides of the bets. If too much money was coming in for Dober, they give less of an incentive to bet on him so the money on both sides gets closer to even. If that makes sense.

    So not enough money was coming in on Dober even as a 3 to 1 underdog

    That’s how I understand. Possibly someone more educated on the matter then me will chime in.

    bettors move the line, since money been coming in on Islam he becomes a bigger favourite so the bookies can have even action.
