Sportsbook.com has put out the latest odds. It’s always interesting to see how the fans perceive fights. Right now the betting public is putting down a ton of money on the favorites. Case in point, Rich Franklin vs Nate Quarry and Matt Hughes vs Joe Riggs.

Rich Franklin -500
Nate Quarry +350

Franklin started at -350 around most places. Now the numbers have sky rocketed to -500, meaning if you wanted to bet the favorite you would have to bet $500 just to win $100. If you like the underdog Quarry, you bet just $100 to win $350.

UFC 56 – Welterweight Championship
Matt Hughes -450
Joe Riggs +300

Hughes has also been bet by the public heavily. The number started at -300 and has ballooned to -450. The underdog is a good value if you believe that Riggs can win the fight.

UFC 56 – Welterweight Bout
Georges St Pierre -260
Sean Sherk +200

Another favorite, another change for St.Pierre. This has shot up almost 40 points. St.Pierre continues to be bet by the public.

UFC 56 – Middleweight Bout
Jeremy Horn -225
Trevor Prangley +185

Horn was a huge favorite, but this line is the first to go down as far favorites go. Horn was basically 100 points higher, but plenty of money has come down on the underdog Prangley dropping the line substantially. Seems the public likes Prangley to pull off the upset.

UFC 56 – Heavyweight Bout
Gabriel Gonzaga -325
Kevin Jordan +250

This may be the most surprising line change. This went from a Pick’em to plenty of money going toward Gonzaga. For whatever reason all the money is going on Gonzaga.

UFC 56 – Lightheavyweight Bout
Sam Hoger -325
Jeff Newton +250

Plenty of money coming down on another favorite in Sam Hoger. Line started with Sam at -260 and has shot up to -325.

UFC 56 – Welterweight Bout
Keith Wisniewski -145
Nick Thompson +115

There hasn’t been much action on this fight at all. Line has stayed the same.

UFC 56 – Welterweight Bout
Ansar Chalangov -260
Thiago Alves +200

Same could be said about this fight. Not much has changed as we get closer to tomorrow’s weigh-in.
