BJ Penn is a large favorite again in this rematch at -350 odds meaning that for every $350 bet will payout $100. For a tutorial on MMA lines UFC Betting explained. Champ Frankie Edgar is one of the biggest underdogs in MMA history at +250 odds. Right up there with Matt Serra Vs GSP 2 which we know how that turned out.

TAKE BJ Penn -350 odds

BJ Penn fell in love with his jab and thought he could out box Frankie Edgar. In the first fight Edgar was able to move in and out with his boxing skills and out point BJ Penn. The “Prodigy” will be plenty motivated to win back his belt with a solid game plan that will have him take Edgar down and use his superior ground game. BJ will have a better grasp of Frankie’s speed and range this time. Not a lot of value at -350 odds. Should be some good prop bets on victory by BJ Penn by submission or less than 5 rounds.

UFC 118 Pick

Take Kenny Florian -160 Odds
Gray Maynard is undefeated at 10-0 with 7 decision wins and is known for his strong wrestling and boring wins where he outpoints guys on the ground. Florian has continually evolved and his wrestling take down defense for this match should be able to stuff Maynard. Kenny’s Muay Thai and striking will be more accurate leading a TKO win.
