    Well I see alot of people here that might show interest and I myself do very well,I tried my hand in mma but I lost my ass most of the time becasue the sport is unpredictable.

    Anyway I'm pretty good,

    Here is how I did on my last 6 bets

    (my first bet ever)pavlick vs taylor 1 -Taylor was a clear favorite and I knew pavlick was underated and very dangerous,so I bet the house and won 2,000 us

    Gomez vs gatti-was gonna bet on gatti but gomez was a high value and I knew gatti was pretty shot and a small welter so I bet on gomez and won 250 us

    Calzaghe vs kessler-I just picked joe and won 75 dollars

    well thats it so far becasue I only bet If I'm pretty sure the underdog stands a good chance of winning I think my next bet will be diaz vs pacman I know diaz should be a good value and pacs moving up a class so thats a smart bet.

    Lol - i don't bet that much on horses, it's more a social thing i do at the pub on a friday/saturday - never any signifigant money just some fun while i have a few/alot of drinks with mates. Basically if i lose $30 i stop betting but thankfully they also have dogs where usually the favourite wins.

    Dogs in Australia is the easiest thing to win on.

    But yeh I bet on most sports as well. Next fight I bet on will probably Calzaghe/Hopkins.

    If Pavlik Vs Taylor 1 was your first bet ever how did you bet on Gomez to beat Gatti. The Pavlik vs Taylor fight happened 2 Months after.

    i bet beer. no money.

    well...unless its a short trip to reno or vegas. but never for an amount that is uncomfortable.

    last two fights i've bet on are pav jt 1...got +180 on pav. won about 200.

    hatton JLC...took hatton to win. didn't pay very well as he was a big favorite in Tahoe.
