    I'm not betting any more early lines, he he. The late lines usually end up being as good or better than the super duper early ones anyway.

    rda at -125 will almost certainly shift towards his favorite by fight time

    Early betting odds from Best Fight Odds have been released. As of this writing, Conor McGregor has come out as the underdog at +100 while dos Anjos is listed at -130.

    I think the under 2.5 is the best line for that fight.

    Is there actually a line on that yet? I don't think this fight sees the third round. I also like RDA to win but what do I know ... I lost money on Connor against Chad, Dustin, and Aldo lol. Dude keeps proving me wrong.

    Not sure if I agree with u2.5 being that great. I think rda & o2.5 both hit, in fact

    I don't see either fighter clearly winning rounds without putting the other in danger.

    I think the hype and energy on this is going to be huge. I don't think McGregor will play it as safe on bottom and let rounds slip away. I think he'd go out on his shield giving up his back or arm before letting RDA just win rounds on top.

    You think so O? He seemed very content allowing mendes sit in guard, but that might be because he knew he was gassing too. I think that if he tries to initiate scrambles with RDA on top though it would end with RDA grabbing an arm or neck and ending the fight. But like Jerry said, McGregor keeps proving me wrong too!

    RDA is a favorite? I guess ppl got too impressed by him destroying Cerrone the last time. Time to put some on my boy McGregor!

    Dominating Bendo, Diaz, Pettis and Cerrone in succession warrants being a favorite over McGregor who is moving up in weight, IMO. Figured he would actually be more of a fav, but they know money will come in on McGregor i am guessing. I know JB is very confident though and I have tailed him many times, so makes me somewhat hesitant in going large on RDA.

    Overall skill wise RDA is so much better but that left hand can end the night at any moment. Very hard to cap IMO.

    Considering how RDA was shitting all over Pettis TDD I think he's the rightful favorite, but then again I just can't bring myself to pick McGregor for some reason.
