UFC Heavyweight Junior dos Santos

Junior dos Santos and Shane Carwin will both enter their UFC 131 shootout with an impressive 12-1 record. The former interim heavyweight champ is expected to outweigh dos Santos by roughly 25 pounds by the time the cage door slams shut this Saturday inside the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada.

However, those aren’t the numbers gamblers are interested in reading about. Thankfully, the sports books have provided the proper material required to make the top contender scrap a little more exciting.

Carwin enters the contest a slight +135 underdog, while the Brazilian checks in as a -165 favorite. Although it will be a close call as to who earns first dibs at Cain Velasquez’s title, the odds suggest the pay-per-view main event won’t last longer than five minutes.

Dealer’s choice: Parlay whichever heavyweight you think will be victorious, along with that fighter winning within the distance.
