    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.

    Harris + Foster + Held/Jolly under 1.5: $2.50 to win $6.48 $9.08
    Ellenberger: $2.50 to win $6
    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

    TOTALS FOR 2014: Initial Risk was $127.50 Running Total is $107.74 Running Profit/Loss = -$19.76 (Approximate ROI for year -1.43%)
    TOTALS FOR 2013: Initial Risk was $232.50, Running total is $583.75 Running Profit = $351.25 (Approximate ROI for year: 9.34%)
    TOTALS FOR 2012: Initial Risk was $275, Running Total is $1030.18 Running Profit = $755.18 (Approximate ROI for year: 15.56%)
    TOTALS FOR 2011: Initial Risk was $44, Running Total $1271.39 Running Profit = $1227.39 (Approximate ROI for year: 27%)
    TOTALS FOR 2010: Initial Risk was $29, Running Total $225.92 Running Profit = $196.92 (Approximate ROI for year: 13%)
    GRAND TOTAL FOR 2010 THROUGH 2013: $29 into $2515.86 Total Profit = $2486.86 (Approximate ROI: 14.75%)

    Brooks-Chandler is set for the interim title so I guess this will be a 5 rounder

    who has the better wrestling credentials, they have a similar style with a strong wrestling base and fast hands.
    Im thinking that chandler will be unbettable but Brooks has been looking pretty good lately.

    Cormier is a short price but i would be shocked is he lost, Al Iaquinta should win again, my next biggish bet will be Machida at 2/1 against wiedman.

    ****Miami Heat -3****

    Really like the Heat this evening. Nets had terrific shooting night on Saturday and quite frankly I think they caught the Heat off guard with their inspired play. I don't think that happens again, and I think Miami reminds the Nets who they are in a big way.

    BOL EVERYBODY!

    Hindsight, but I didn't like the Davis bet, especially not in a parlay. Tough break with Bouchard. Getting owned by Schiavone on any surface is terrible.

    Surprised not many people is talking about bellator

    We're having odds for 12 fights this weekend, but most fighters is unknown to me. Think i only bet on Mo and Shlemenko + Chandler. Yamauchi at dog odds would be good.

    Kinda think Ellenberger is the bet here..Classic title fight hangover for Lawler while this is chance for Ellenberger to bounce back. Need to look more into it but I lean Ellenberger for sure

    I would like to think that too, but I'm still disgusted by that Macdonald fight in which he didn't do sh%t. Gets jabbed to death, doesn't try to do a single thing to try to switch it up (ie, takedowns, getting the fight against the fence, etc). We're in the last round and he's clearly en route to losing a decision, Rory throws a lazy kick, Ellenberger catches it and gets a free takedown. Does he go for broke and gnp? No, he spends the rest of the round resting in Rory's guard. Unbelievable.

    It's always been a pet peeve of mine when it's a foregone conclusion you're going to lose on points and you've got like 1 minute left and aren't doing everything in your power to finish the fight. Especially when you got dynamite in your hands and turning it into a brawl would dramatically increase your chances of winning, or at least give you a coinflip chance of turning it around.


    Might still make a play on Ellenberger, but I want better than the +200 he's currently sitting at. Sorry if that comes off as a bit self-entitled, I used to be pretty big on Ellenberger actually, but that last fight was just so frustrating to watch.
