Even with all his accolades, the betting consensus is that Benson Henderson should be the underdog against Brandon Thatch in their welterweight bout at UFC Fight Night “Henderson vs. Thatch.”
Bookmakers have begun fine tuning their lines for tonight’s main event between “Smooth” and “Rukus,” and all have listed Thatch as the betting favorite. The event will take at 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colo., and airs on Fox Sports 1.
According to BestFightOdds.com, the broker 5Dimes.com currently lists Thatch as the favorite at odds of -150. On the opposite end, Henderson is getting play at +140.
In layman’s terms, a bet of $100 on Thatch would net you $66.67 (plus your investment), while a $100 wager on Henderson would earn $140 (plus the $100 back).
These lines will likely continue to fluctuate as the two draw closer to entering the Octagon later tonight.
