Isn't the favourite value always supposed to be higher than the underdog value?

pulver is +330 and penn is -310, but shouldn't it be pulver +310 and penn -330?

like... as it stands i could put 100 on pulver, and 320 on penn and make a guaranteed profit of 10. And i know you're not allowed to bet on both fighters... but still. is it just to increase action on the underdogs?

When a book maker makes the odds then yes. They need to make money. This is fake money and its a game, so the odds are in the player favor.

i don't know why they don't have +350 and -$350 so it's the same each way its not like the house matters if it makes money or not

Whats the fun in those odds. The way it is now gives the advantage to the player. It is a players game, get on board.

i just think it makes it easy for ppl to understand. i don't care i see how it's better for us cause i only have to wager 310 on bj to make 100 and ppl that pick jens can win 330 off 100 wager so it's better then both having to pay 320.

It would make it easier to understand, but there is no incentive to bet unless the odds are out of whack. Since the odds can change, they might not stay out of whack.
