December 2, 2010 UFC

UFC 88 odds have Nate Marquardt as a slight favorite over Martin Kampmann as one of the fights on the main card.

UFC 88 odds on the September 6th card include 10 bouts, five on the main card and five on the preliminary card. Let’s take a look at the UFC 88 betting odds matchup between Marquardt and Kampmann.

UFC 88 odds show that Marquardt is about a -140 favorite over Kampmann. That basically means the fight is even in UFC 88 betting odds. Marquardt has the most experience of the two fighters as he is 26-8-2, including 5-2 in the UFC. Kampmann is 13-1 overall and 4-0 in the UFC. Although Marquardt is the slight favorite in UFC 88 odds, Kampmann should not be underestimated. He is unbeaten in the UFC and recently defeated Thales Leites by unanimous decision. Leites is unbeaten since that loss including a win over Marquardt. Kampmann also has wins over Drew McFedries and Jorge Rivera in his most recent two bouts coming into this UFC 88 odds event.

Marquardt may be the UFC 88 odds favorite in this fight but he is only 1-2 in the last year or so and the one victory was nothing special. He lost to Leites on a split decision. He won in UFC 81 but lost in UFC 73. The problem if you are taking Marquardt in UFC 88 betting odds is that he makes mistakes. He has been penalized in the past and he puts himself in bad positions. Overall, he is just not a smart fighter. It is hard to back any favorite in UFC 88 odds that makes a lot of mistakes and that is the risk with taking Marquardt.

UFC 88 odds show 10 bouts on the card, highlighted by Chuck Liddell vs. Rashad Evans. The other UFC 88 odds on the main card have Rich Franklin vs. Matt Hamill, Karo Parisyan vs. Yoshiyuki Yoshida and Dan Henderson vs. Rousimar Palhares.
