Joey Oddessa, MMA Oddsmaker, makes Zentsov the opening favorite at -260, meaning you would have to bet $260 to win 100 dollars. For Yvel, the underdog, you would have to bet just $100 on Yvel to win $200.

Minotauro is the biggest favorite on the board. Are you willing to bet two grand to win a hundred bucks? Neither are we.
