It’s no surprise that Joe Soto is a big underdog at UFC 177. | Jeff Sherwood/Sherdog.com
With the news that Joe Soto will be filling in on 24 hours’ notice to challenge T.J. Dillashaw for the UFC bantamweight title at UFC 177 in Sacramento, Calif., oddsmakers have been forced to release a new betting line.
5dimes.eu has revealed its odds on the main event matchup and as is to be expected, the former Bellator MMA champion is a heavy underdog.
The broker currently lists Dillashaw as the favorite at -1500 or 15/1. On the opposite end, Soto is getting play at +700.
In layman’s terms, a bet of $1500 on Dillashaw would net you an additional $100 (plus your investment), while a $100 wager on Soto would earn $700 (plus the $100 back).
It’s worth noting that heading into UFC 173, Dillashaw was as high of an underdog as +710 in his upset victory of Barao on May 24.
