UFC 130: Rampage Jackson vs. Rashad Evans Betting Odds

That didn’t take long. With news breaking that a UFC 130 fight between former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton Jackson and Thiago Silva was in jeopardy and that Rashad Evans may fill in for the Brazilian, the oddsmakers got started.

Now both Bodog.com and Sportsbook.com have offered odds on the potential bout. Most notably, they came to the exact same conclusion, making Evans the favorite and Jackson the underdog:

Rashad Evans -185
Quinton Rampage Jackson +155

How do these odds differ from those leading into their first bout at UFC 114? Before that fight oddsmakers considered them to be dead even.

Evans won their first meeting, but I actually think these odds are off. Aside from a third round scare, there’s no denying Evans did won handily. But that was a rusty, improperly prepared Rampage. I tend to think Jackson is back in something of a fighting groove and will be much more able to stop the takedowns or clinching from Evans.
