The betting lines on Anderson Silva versus Chris Weidman in July has kicked off. It may be too early to call accurate, but as of now, Silva is only a 2 to 1 (-215) favorite over Weidman. The line is actually close, considering that “The Spider” was a whopping 13 to 1 over his last opponent Stephan Bonnar.
Regardless of how you feel on the debatable issue, Weidman fans still look to make good coin, if he’s to dethrone the longest running champ, as betting lines are around +165 currently. Is it the undefeated record and destructive finishes that has people running to the underdog? Perhaps. Either way, any gambler will tell you, play where the money is and don’t play a dog that can’t win (Joey Odessa).
