I honestly don't care if I lose, this will still make the fights more interesting.

Edgar is the only one I'm not sure of, but after watching countdown and seeing him drop Bendo again I am hoping for the best.

Of course Fitch's brand of fighting might put him in trouble with Maia, but I have faith in Fitch's motivation to make it back to the top of the division.

Will bump if I win, and I'm sure someone else will bump if I don't.

fishyfish - 

good picks, and I think Frankie has a good shot for sure, but he might spoil it for you.

I woulda split that parlay in half:

25$ on Fitch+Rashad+Overeem+Frankie (like your parlay)

and

25$ on Fitch+Rashad+Overeem

that's pretty much what I bet on this card.

 

 

The return on the first 3 was not worthwhile without Frankie who is an odds underdog.

 

 

Either way good luck bro, I will be celebrating with you if our fighters come through.

Anderson Emelianenko GOAT - 

Here are my two bets this weekend

 


Looks like you use Bovada too. Are they legit? I sure hope they are.

Anderson Emelianenko GOAT - yeah, only thing that sucks is the 1st check you cash out takes a long ass time to get to you, I think it took me about 6 weeks for me to get mine. after that, it takes only about 7-10 days.

My gut is telling me that I will lose this one anyway. I just hope that it isnt the first fight of the card, that will ruin the night for me.

Good luck guys. Frankie fights are tough to bet on, either way. Often razor-thin close decisions.

P.S. Screw the Tweety Bird Ravens!!

Nice call on the Pettis fight though, I would have went with Cowboy on that one.

Hope you are wrong about Maia.

the return on the first 3 becomes more and more appealing as you lose more and more bets cause of one guy.  it may not necessarily be "about making money", but ultimately IMO losing bets is less fun than winning them.


I hear ya, but this is the first time I have bet on anything and I want it to be more of a risk, with a bigger reward.

Don't bet what you aren't willing to lose. It won't hurt me if I lose this 50, but it will be really nice to win a few hundred dollars.

I think my chances on a 4 fight parlay are probably pretty bad anyway.

If anyone is going to spoil it it will be Aldo or Maia. Bigfoot is going to get destroyed.

I bet on most UFC and Bellator fights, but through a bookie in the mafia and not online.

As this is your first bet ever here are some tips.

Try to limit your parlays. You'll realize you would have won more in the long run by cutting one or two guys out of it.

Also look for value. Betting on anyone at over -300 is very rarely a good idea unless it's an absolute lock. In my opinion, betting on Overeem is not worth the risk. However, your bankroll may differ from mine.

I do hours of research on everything I bet on. I usually bet on about 50 fights a year. A lot of them would be losses if I didn't analyze, watch fights over and over, and read stats.

And don't bet on shit for fun. Gambling is for winning money. Besides, gambling is inherently fun anyways.

I wouldn't have picked these guys if I didn't think they would win.

Frankie seems like the best underdog, but I could see it going either way which makes me want to stay away from it.

Lil Nog could pull off the upset ko, but who knows Phone Post

Feeling good about my picks after the weigh ins; Edgar is still the only one I am really worried about.

I like Edgar but he's not a dangerous fighter. He doesn't finish fights and takes a lot of damage. Against Aldo's skillset, that's trouble. Luckily it's Edgar and not Hominick. Edgar is talented and is always live.

I just would have excluded him from the parlay.

Then there would have been almost no risk and no reward. Edgar dropped Gray, and Bendo, and he lifted Bendo over his head and slammed him. 

I disliked Edgar after the BJ fights, but his heart has made him one of my favorite fighters. He is one tough son of a bitch and from what I can see is not afraid of anyone.

Did not look scared in that staredown today.

Win me some money Frankie!
