As of today at overseas betting site "BetOnline.ag," Velasquez has opened as a (-275) favorite against Jones, who in turn gets the "underdog" rate of (+215). Simply put, for every $275 wagered on the heavyweight champ, you would earn $100. While a $100 bet on "Bones" would pocket you an extra $215.
This was likely spurred from a recent interview in which Jones stated that he was walking at around 230 lbs. and would like to do a super fight with the UFC heavyweight champion.
