If the purpose of betting lines is to compel fans to wager ... then someone is doing a good job.

Same here. I like the odds at that line.

I would LOVE if Lawler won but Hendricks won't want to strike with him. Hendricks made that mistake in their first fight and almost lost if not for the wrestling in round 5.

Expect a lot of takedowns from Hendricks and a lot of holding in this rematch.

Those odds surprise me especially since Hendricks has been off so long and Lawler has been on a huge streak. Not to mention Ruthless almost had him beat the first time.

Throw in the fact that Hendrick's was reported as coming back earlier than expected from surgery/rehab, I'm pretty surprised at the lines myself
