Greg Hardy vs Allen Crowder Betting Lines
The Greg Hardy vs Allen Crowder betting lines have Hardy as a short price favourite at -550 and Crowder the +400 underdog with bet365*, which is not surprising when you consider what is at stake here for the UFC. Greg Hardy is a big name, he comes here having KO’d his last three opponents inside a minute and the UFC matchmakers will have been very careful in their selection of his first opponent.
Allen Crowder has a respectable record, but has lost three times during his MMA career and you have to get the feeling that he has been cherry-picked to give Greg Hardy a winnable first assignment in order to build his worth further to the promotion.
