    How much money are you guys laying down this weekend? I'm fairly tentative about almost all of the lines for all four cards but tempted to put money on Alvarez and Franca at 1u a piece.

    Every other line is fairly blown out but it can't be helped; Dewees is at +750 from my bookie -- who wants to go half and half? :rofl:

    I'm not a hardcore, profit-grinding bettor, or even especially sharp.

    I've got 1u on Irvin and Sylvia, Sylvia is +305 and Irvin is +405.

    Keep in mind that my unit is $25.

    What are the odds on Franca? he's hardly an underdog.

    I think Franca would be a good bet. I like Frankie Edgar but I think Franca definitely takes this fight.

    agreed, those were the two best bets i saw as well.
     
  7. 2u on whitehead at +215 (Accident, I only wanted 1 unit, forgot I'd already placed 1 unit when I palced the second)
    1u on Franca at +120
    1u on BUrns at +275
    1u on Irvin at +450
    1U on Sylvia at +280
    2.33u on Barnett at -350
     
  8. come on bro, you can get Diet Nog at -1500 at Bodog

    how can you pass that up?
     
  9. oh and 1u on Uno at +300

    I like the odds for Whitehead, Irvin and Sylvia

    I think the Franca fight could easily end up like the Varner/Franca fight in terms of style except that Edgar will probably be harder to submit and has better boxing, I would bet on Edgar

    His wagering style is consistent (more or less a numbers game) so it'll pay off eventually.

    But yea, he'll be bleeding money out the ass this weekend.

    P.S. that Sylvia line is ass; my bookie still has him at +350 and will probably close around +325.

    I've been playing around with parley bets on bodog. Not sure if they are statistically a good idea but if you combine: fedor, silva vera, and franca and you have a +326 bet instead of a -500 -500 -350 and a +130 bet. So if you bet 4 bets like this you only need to hit one to cover the other three and anything else is a profit. My roommate is into baseball betting and got me to parley a few baseball games in with some fights. The the baseball went my way so if the fights do too I'll hit big.
