Frankie Edgar is the betting favorite in his upcoming featherweight bout against Urijah Faber at UFC Fight Night “Edgar vs. Faber.”
Two bookmakers have released their opening lines for the main event fight between Edgar and Faber, and both have listed the Team Alpha Male fighter as the underdog. The five-round scrap will headline the UFC’s first trip to the Philippines on May 16.
According to BestFightOdds.com, the broker 5Dimes currently lists Edgar as the favorite at -280, while SportBet puts the odds at -268. On the opposite end, “The California Kid” is getting play at +200 and +212. In layman’s terms, a bet of $280 or $268 on Edgar would net you an additional $100, while a $100 wager on Faber would earn $200 or $212.
These lines are subject to change and will fluctuate as more information regarding the bout becomes available.
