Middleweight king Anderson Silva was a 3-to-1 odds-on favorite when he successfully defended his throne against Chael Sonnen at UFC 148. Reigning light heavyweight champ Jon Jones (Pictured) is pegged as a whopping 10-to-1 favorite to dismantle Uncle Chael when they collide April 27th. So if you were to do the gambling math, does that mean Jones would be a 7-to-1 favorite to beat “The Spider” if that fantasy fight ever came to fruition? Probably not, as we all know styles make fights. Anyhow, if we didn’t know before we certainly know now – Sonnen is in deep do-do when he battles “Bones” for his belt inside Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Here are the early wagering lines for Jones vs. Sonnen (Courtesy of BetUS): Underdog (+) Favorite (-) Chael Sonnen +600 Jon Jones -1000 Gambling 101: Bet $100 on Sonnen and he’s victorious, you win $600 Bet $1000 on Jones and he’s victorious, you win $100
