The main event of the evening has Fedor Emelianenko moderately favored to advance into the next round, with a moneyline of around -275. His opponent Chael Sonnen is sporting a stout underdog tag of around +215. The oddsmakers even have Fedor favored to finish his foe, as there is a prop bet of ‘Emelianenko wins inside the distance’ with a line of -165. On the flipside, ‘Sonnen wins inside the distance’ hits at a heavy underdog mark of +500.
In the co-main event, former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson is substantially favored, with a moneyline around -450, to pick up back-to-back wins for the first time in his Bellator career. Standing across from Bendo will be sizable underdog Saad Awad, who looks to cash in on a +325 moneyline to extend his winning streak to five-straight.
Bellator 208 has a pair of pick’em bouts on the books. Cheick Kongo can be found at both plus and minus odds, ranging from -110 up to +113, as he takes on fellow UFC vet and Bellator newcomer Timothy Johnson. Johnson currently sits at around the -135 mark. Bellator’s former middleweight champ Alexander Shlemenko and Fedor Emelianenko’s protege Anatoly Tokov can both be found at favored odds for their 185-pound matchup, with Shlemenko sitting around -120 and Tokov teetering around -110.
Opening up the main card will be the widest available betting line for the entire event. Henry Corrales is massively favored with a moneyline of around -550, while Andy Main sits as the card-high underdog at around +375. Whether or not this bout ends early comes to us at pick’em odds, with ‘Fight goes to decision’ at -140 and ‘Fight doesn’t go to decision’ at +100.
