putting $50 on Forbes over DLH at +900.

any opinions on Forbes realistic chances against DLH?

50 to win 450 seems like a decent risk
 
If it was 20-1 it would be worth it. I think if DLH and Forbes fought 9 times, DLH would win 9 times.
 
Really long odds are probaably decent bets for DLH given that he's a part-time fighter.
 
Yea, I mean I know its supposed to be a huge rematch. In fact I was just reading something where some sports editor (don't remember who) said Forbes has a better chance of winning the presidency than beating DLH.

I don't know if any of the boxing guys in here follow MMA as much, but Soko was like +1200 against Rogerio Nogueria last year in Pride and came out on top, so you never know.

Dude boxing and MMA are different. MMA is a lot less predictable.

It is true you never know, but I personally wouldn't risk it.

I think a major reason for that is b/c soko was virtually unkown and was dismissed as having as a chance. The major difference in Forbes case is that your dealing with a known quantity and he is an underdog.

Big upsets do happen though. I think Donaire was +800 when he ko'ed Darchinyan.

I think MMA's a lot different though. In boxing it's easier to recover from a mistake. In grappling, if you get in a bad spot it takes a huge effort to get out.
 
The other factor is that Forbes ain't gonna get a decision if the fight is close.

Think Sturm/De La Hoya.

When it comes to boxing, sad to say, but you have to factor in politics such as hometown decisions or "good for boxing" decisions.

Nobody wants to see Forbes/Mayweather.
 
Rumor around Vegas is the fight is preset to be a shaddy stoppage for a ODLH win.

Having said that, as Cero says above, there is a 0% chance of Stevie winning a close decision and I don't think Oscar is going to get kayoed by him. Save your money unless you're getting it at 15-1 +.

take your 50 and invest it in the stock market. you might be better off betting on zab judah at +300.

i would take the $50 bill to a bank. Ask for 50 $1 bills.

Proceed to a very low level strip club and make it fucking rain! Tell them they can't touch the money until you say its okay. just don't have the bouncer shot.

or you can bet on Forbes.
 
He's small, has no power, and is fighting a big, gold medalist, multiple weight champ that is a hall of famer.

No, you should not even put 10 cents on Steve Forbes, he has not chance and will not make it past the 6th round.

I don't even bet on MMA. Too damn risky.
 
the differences are that sokoudjou has KO power and wore 4oz gloves.
 
I talked my old boss out of betting $100 on Soko at +1800 when we went to Pride FC. He had never watched MMA before, I convinced him it was going to be an easy win. Not good.
