    If it makes sense to hedge live I will for sure, though it is very hard for me to fully hedge or *gasp* switch sides.

    You're a special case. It doesn't sound like it should work long term to me but hey if it ain't broke

    With the right plan and consistency in stakes and approach, it worked pretty well. I got most of that initial 21k in 4 months and I think I rarely picked winners. I was mainly betting on WMMA and male lower weights to reach second rounds.

    And it might seem like a lot of money, but it's all relative. I was always raising my stake by 1k for every 5k that my bankroll reached.

    I was being sarcastic, most guys burn out long term, normally after initial success gives then false confidence.

    Isn't WMMA and male lower weights usually over/under 2.5 rounds so you can't really bet on reaching second rounds?

    Depends on the bookie. Only one that I use doesn't offer to reach 2nd round.

    The odds are really crap for these, but if you know the fighters and throw a few in a multi, it adds up.

    I mean it sounds like a really good plan and you had so much success with it. Didnt even know they offer those for reaching 2nd rounds

    All I can say is this.

    Dude gets crazy lines and his picks are spot on.

    Sure, he loses some once in a while, but that's how sports betting goes sometimes.

    However, as you can see he posts his bets before the events and I've seen him pick 9/9 or 8/9 or 9/10 before.

    Anyone who has attempted to doubt him on these forums has had a screenshot of his actual bet slip posted in reply.

    He's a great source to compare your bets to as others have said previously in this thread.

    Good luck with your future bets !

    Just started this year in late Aug or early Sept and I'm up 80 units, so not too bad so far.

    Had a couple shitty weeks and I lost $40 on Costa vs Crinngeysanya.

    Had some things gone my way I would be up even more, but I'm certainly not complaining

    One unit being 10 bucks? Then that's pretty great tho

    Just looked at my excel sheet and I’m up $2400 since beginning of October when I started to properly keep track. About half of that was NFL bets. Bankroll at that time was $1500 in my gambling accounts. That $1500 was all covered by the sign up bonuses they had when sports gambling got legal in my state. So basically free money.

    So not doing bad at all to me. $1200 in my accounts now and $2700 profit pulled out to spend on things that I liked to have, but couldn’t justify spending “real” money on. Next target is some cheap bikes for me and wife and a baby trailer thing for the spring. Halfway there, putting that half on Stipe. So Stipe wins, I get some family bikes for the spring here.

    We will find out. I deposited $5000 last week as I hit 8/9 on the Stipe card, all small bets which boosted my confidence. Bet all on the Vetorri fight night card and hit all but one bet. Im up $3300 going into this weekend and all in on the Bellator and UFC cards.

    Some bookies offer 1.5 and 2.5 (3.5, 4.5) for fights, such as Bet365

    You can bet the o/u 1.5 or 2.5 on every fight this weekend, for instance
