    Same drill as always - post bets, discuss bets/matchups, and other sports in spoilers.

    I'm on hiatus after a rough streak besides a couple tiny plays. Current plays and totals below.

    Trinaldo: $5 to win $6 Loss
    Ferguson + Njokuani: $5 to win $4.70 Loss
    Harris + Foster + Held/Jolly under 1.5: $2.50 to win $6.48 $9.08
    Ellenberger: $2.50 to win $6 Loss
    Holdsworth + Iaquinta + Cormier Dec: $2.50 to win $4.98 Loss
    Volkov + Kongo: $2.50 to win $4.21 $6.71
    Jardine/Roberts over 1.5 + King Mo +3.5 points handicap: $2.50 to win $4.31 $6.81
    Ferguson + Miz/Rivera starts 2 + Barao/Dillashaw ITD: $2.50 to win $3.64 $6.14

    TOTAL RISK OF $25 $28.74

    The one bad judge should only worry guys betting on Varner-Krause and Lawler-Ellenberger i guess. We'll mostly see finishes from now on i think and fights that can't really be scored wrong.

    Iaquinta is my biggest bet today too, just can't see him losing to Clarke. He should finish Clarke aswell (got some money on the ITD).

    Is it not worth putting something on Hendo by KO at +700? He does have the H-bomb and Cormier's chin is pretty untested.

    IMO Clarke is way below his league and he almost finished very durable guys in Hallman and Couture. Nearly finished Lee aswell who has never been finished. Clarke is even worse than Couture.

    Am I wrong in thinking that I read somewhere before that Trinaldo only ever throws strikes from one side? If so that's a weird stat for someone with a proper striking background.

    Let's not forget that Clarke got TKO'd by Cholish who is pretty much a pure BJJ guy.

    That's what I get for being an odds whore and taking Pichel itd, should've just taken the ml.

    Congrats to anyone who hit the Dec or ml.

    I have Al in the last leg of a two teamer, and put a little bit on him itd as well.

    Me like.

    It would suck if Al dropped him and went for a choke though.

    Ppl always forget that Iaquinta beat Tuck, Jury, Ogle and Pichel on TUF. All 4 opponents are still in the UFC.
