    Do you recognize any pattern that he bets with? I don't personally see anything impressive from his betting that you listed.

    Well yea what I have been doing since for the past 2 months is not exactly following his bets but somewhat following his bets I bet every fight not just 1 or 2 and if we disagree with a bout I will just take the over or under instead like the Sanders bet he placed I liked Maness But I just took the under and ended up winning on it. I also agreed with his smith bet so I bet bigger then my normal amount

    No I dont then again I am not the greatest gambler out there either. I am up since I started betting MMA not much but I bet about 50-100$ a fight and I am up about 600$ since I started betting MMA about 6 months ago. 1 Thing I do notice he gets amazingly good lines. If I had to guess hes prob going to bet Vettori at dog odds, He prob got Doldize at an amazing line Benitez at dog odds. But he usually post Fri night or sat morning so we will find out then.

    The two I think since Ive been here maybe about IDK 15 events he lost once and that was because he only had 1 bet that event. and from what I recall it was a robbery as well. but you can go back and look if you want very rarely he loses

    I think that there is more money to be made in gambling on MMA than trading on US stocks. In fact, stocks trading is extremely difficult. Investing is another activity though, not to be mistaken with trading.

    One thing that would really interest me is to see stats on odds and the following results. My guess is that if you pic all favourites a million times, you will lose all your money, because the bookies need their cut, so that your odds are worse than real odds.

    He's mainly winning even on underdog plays, what where you expecting?

    Its easy to pick who you think will win a fight and get it right. A lot harder to back your picks and lay down the chalk. Overall if your winning on a event and making good profit does it matter if you picked underdogs or not?

    consistency is king. Anyone at some point can have a good event or two. But to do it almost everytime is what makes the difference

    Bookies aren’t fortune tellers they win by the matter of the juice and encouraging action on both sides so that no matter which fighter wins they win money regardless. If you really know what you are doing(which i don’t in mma lol) there is def money to be made. Esp a sport like mma where there is heavy line movement because of the lack of knowledge from oddsmakers.

    I think sadistic bets stand out because he is getting amazing lines. Long term that makes a huge difference. I don't know what you expect from someone standing out. It's mainly about getting good lines, managing bankroll and be disciplined. All of which are easier said than done.

    I think he has some software that pings him when lines get out.

    It's ridiculous to expect to find a pattern from a winning bettor if you aren't a winner yourself.

    Obviously he is seeing some things that you are blind to.
