Mike Fagan did his usual major event gambling round-up at BloodyElbow and he had the following to say about the BJ Penn/Diego Sanchez fight:â†µ
Penn is as dominant at 155 as Fedor at heavyweight, Anderson at 185, and GSP at 170. For whatever reason, the linesmakers don't seem to grasp that (and apparently the betting public hasn't either, the line hasn't moved as far as I would expect). So, unload as much as you can tolerably risk. Stick him in parlays. Take the KO or submission props over at Bookmaker. If there's a bet to be had and Penn is involved, hand over you money.â†µ
I couldn't agree more with this statement. The fact that the line opened with Penn under -200 is absurd. When the official predictions for BloodyElbow come out later today you'll see that I think Penn is going to run through Diego in the first round. It's just a brutally bad fight for Diego.
