WEC Lightweight Anthony Pettis

Are you one of the many Americans scrambling to find some last-minute Christmas cash? Well, you can put your couch cushions back down because the Gambling Gods have finally released the complete list of investment options for Thursday’s WEC 53: Henderson vs. Pettis” event.

Up until now, the sports books had only posted the betting odds for tonight’s two featured contests. However, the powers that be have gotten off their Holiday hineys and announced the lines for the remaining bouts on the card.

Just yesterday, lightweight title holder Ben Henderson was pegged as a -175 favorite to retain his strap against Anthony Pettis. He has since moved up to a 2-to-1 odds-on favorite.

It will be interesting to see if the late money continues to stack behind the champ as game time approaches.
