    By quite a ways is Cody Garbrandt over Mizugaki, a whopping -550 on 5dimes. For those unfamiliar with how non-decimal odds work that means to win a $100 you must risk $550. The Miz is at +425, meaning a $100 bet on Mizu would pay out $425 with a victory.

    Kind of surprising that Means is fighting Sabah Whomasi and is -450, seeing Homasi is basically a sacrificial lamb (11-5 overall, only 1-3 for SF and Bellator).

    Your thoughts?

    The odds won't reflect it. But betting on Nate is as close to a sure thing as a bettor will find these days.

    Those odds are big for a guy who is still very raw and only had 9 pro fights and half of them have been against cans. Although he is very talented and I can't see Mizugaki beating him.

    Whats the odds for the Glover/Rumble fight??. I got Glover in that and if he is a good price then I might lay a little money down.

    Nate could well win again, but I don't think you know more than Vegas my friend. There's a reason they have all those fancy tall buildings out there in the desert.

    Best odds on Glover are at 5dimes, +175.

    Those big buildings came about from pure corruption and illegal activities.

    The rest of it is because of the rubes of the world. Casinos are fucked and you never buck the Tigers odds. Poker is the only truly fair game in a casino.

    But put your dollars where you will. I'll do the same with mine.

    Because as I expected you should know. The bookies only set an opening odd. It shifts up and down from there based solely on the action received.

    I recently looked up Lim's opponent on Fight Finder thinking about placing a bet, and he's 6-0 with 6 KO's, I won't bet on that fight but it'll be fireworks.

    Blackjack is a million times more fair than poker at the casino, and yes, I did know. But the thing is even when the lines opened it was only about -130ish for McGregor. Now it is practically dead even.

    Vegas doesn't care about who wins. They make odds based on who the public thinks is going to win and to make sure that in the end they get paid no matter who wins.

    Everyone, including Vegas, in their right mind and that understood boxing knew that taking Manny over Mayweather was a sucker's bet but by fight the the odds were pretty even.

    And then everyone got mad when the fight played out exactly how most boxing critics predicted.

    Picking Conor is a sucker's bet.

    Non-decimal odds suck, that's my thoughts.

    Same. Thing is he has fought no one with a pulse and nobody nearly as big and powerful as the Korean Rumble. If Perry can survive the 1st it could be interesting for sure. Lim is a very large WW and he might fade.

    I haven't seen anything but clips of Perry's fights, but one thing I noticed is that he is pretty hittable. If he doesn't mind his P's and Q's Lim will knock him dead.

    I agree with that for the most part. But I think Conor has a far better shot at victory than Manny did for example. Especially considering he went into that fight like the villain from the fugitive lol.

    I prefer decimal odds, but you don't get them betting in Vegas.

    Cerrone/Story is a toss up. Not worth parlaying.

    yeah, in many ways because of dumbass fans.

    for example, conners fan base (and blind nutthuggers before them) happily gave their money away and refuse to learn from history, and casinos and bookies will happily take their money.

    it really is.

    rick is a big dude but inconsistent, and cowboy is awesome, but also inconsistent but in different ways.
