So, we have betting odds, courtesy of BetDSI.eu, for Hardy’s upcoming debut, but there are also odds on whether or not Hardy will be arrested inside of the 2018 calendar year.
As far as Hardy’s pro debut, he finds himself in the underdog role at +135, while the 4-0 Austen comes in with a favored line of -165. For the outcome of the match itself, ‘Fight Ends By KO/TKO or DQ’ is heavily favored at -550, followed by ‘Fight Ends By Submission’ at +350, ‘Fight Goes To Decision’ at +450, and finally ‘Fight Is Declared A No Contest’ at +1000.
When it comes to the length of Hardy’s pro debut, we have ‘Lane Wins Inside The Distance’ favored at -160, followed by ‘Hardy Wins Inside The Distance’ at +145, ‘Lane Wins By Decision’ at +475, and then ‘Hardy Wins By Decision’ at +525. There is also a prop bet on whether or not either athlete will win by first round knockout, with ‘Yes’ being sizably favored at -245 and ‘No’ at a dog tag of +175.
Will Greg Hardy be added to a UFC event card in 2018? ‘Yes’ clocks in at -105 and ‘No’ can be had at -135. Will Austen Lane be added to a UFC event card in 2018? ‘Yes’ can be found at -135 with ‘No’ sitting at -105.
Greg Hardy has had some high profile run-ins with the legal system, so we really shouldn’t be surprised that there are betting odds on whether or not he will be arrested in 2018. We have seen similar odds for light heavyweight great Jon Jones, with ‘No’ Jones will not get arrested heavily favored at -7000, and ‘Yes’ being valued at +3500. The line for Hardy is a bit more narrow than that of Jones, as ‘No’ Hardy will not get arrested being favored at -2500, and ‘Yes’ weighing in at +1200. It looks like the oddsmakers believe Jones is more likely to behave himself than is Hardy.
What a strange time to be alive.
