Oddsmaker Joey Odessa Comments on Jones vs. Cormier & Diaz vs. Silva
Posted by Larry Csonka on 08.02.2014

- Oddsmaker Joey Odessa recently spoke with MMAjunkie.com about two of the bigger fights coming up for the UFC, Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier and Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva. Here is what he had to say about those fights…

On Jones vs. Cormier: "I think Cormier is going to beat him," he said. "I saw (Jones) open at -185, and I couldn't believe Jones was favored that high. It went as high as -225. I don't think Jones has ever fought anybody like Cormier. The only way Cormier loses this fight is if they stop it on a cut. Cormier is a bully; he's like Tim Boetsch times 100 with Olympic-caliber wrestling. Not to compare freestyle and (Greco-Roman) wrestling, because that's a debate in an of itself, but he ragdolled Dan Henderson. He abused him. I think Cormier can stop Jones. I think he can swell (Jones) up. Numbers-wise, they're probably going to bet Jones because of the preview shows are going to do a lot of justice for Jones and people are going to look at Cormier and say, ‘Look at the physique on this guy,' (as opposed to) Jon Jones. Nike, physique, (he's) crushing guys, he's arguably pound-for-pound the best."

On Diaz vs. Silva: "Anything under -200 (for Silva) is stealing," Odessa said. "Diaz has a huge following, but if you really look back at who they fought, if we said Weidman vs. Diaz, we would laugh about that. I don't see Nick beating Anderson unless Anderson just does not show up and he wants to retire. The line right now indicates (Silva will win); it's up to -450 (in Las Vegas). I saw it open up at -240. If you were to take the comeback on it, you'd get like +350 on Nick Diaz."
