For every $100 bet, Rashad Evans would pay $200.  The UFC 98 betting card features what should be a spectacular fight between Evans and Lyoto Machida, but as the folks from BetUS.com rightfully have pointed out, Evans is getting little respect in this one:

"Seldom have we seen a champion in any sport given as little respect as Rashad Evans has been accorded in MMA betting circles. For a champion to be an underdog against a relative unknown is unheard of, but such is the fate for the super talented Evans as he embarks upon what could be a very lengthy title reign. And, such is the fate for Evans when he takes on Lyoto Machida this weekend.

"Evans has shown unbelievable knockout power in shocking victories over UFC legends Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin, defying UFC lines on both occasions. Not to mention that he is also a collegiate wrestler, and thus very capable on the mat as well. The thing is-his fights generally don't last long enough to go to the ground! Evans' takedown defense is excellent. Part of that defense is simply landing an uppercut before his opponent even dives in!

"Many UFC betting experts like Machida in this fight, because in many ways, he is the mixed martial arts equivalent of Floyd Mayweather Jr. There is simply no way to prepare for his unique brand of karate, which he has used to destroy all of his opponents thus far. The problem for Evans is that there really isn't anyone on planet earth with whom he can spar leading up to the fight who can replicate the skill set of Machida. All he can do is find opponents of similar size and stature."

From where we sit here at Gambling911.com, this one might be a tough call.

Lyoto Machida, the Japanese Brazilian fighter, has already beaten some of the biggest names in the UFC today: Tito Ortiz, Rich Franklin and B.J. Penn, and his first-round knockout victory over previously unbeaten Thiago Silva on Jan. 31 was the most eye-catching moment of his career.
