    I guess I just won't withdraw...I didn't realize there was such a hefty withdrawal fee. I will just keep increasing my bet sizes till I have like 10k :)

    I am degen when it comes to betting so my new strategy is to only place bets after weigh ins. I feel like new info often becomes apparent and I already have all my parlays done and there are bets I want to change.

    Therefore I plan to only make bets after weigh ins unless of course there is value that needs to be snatched up. Just my 2c which may help other degens out there.

    All of the bookies I use give 1 free withdrawal per month (5dimes, bookmaker, and betonline)

    Thanks for posting this, something I need to start doing as well. Betting after weighins or fight day. Forget about the odds its about the day that matters.

    How do we see the cote/burkman fight play out?

    I favor burkmans hands and counters, Cote will want to push him against the cage and clinch?

    leaning Burkman and the over

    Might have to go all in on Holloway. I just don't see how he will lose.

    i don't like Rivera, Lineker was very good against uncle creepy, great submission attempts and he has never been knocked out.
    Then again i hate to go against MMAGoodfella. How do you breakdown this fight man? Is Rivera better striker or wrestler than uncle creepy???

    Last time I looked on Bovada, McGoat was a -190 over Aldo.

    Yea me neither man. I think the fight should be a lot more even. May take a stab on Aldo if he gets to +175 or so (Aldo is currently at +155). Plus I hate tying my money up for months.

    UC is a great fighter but vastly overrated by the general public. Rivera is a much larger man and a better striker than McCall. Grappling should be a moot point since Rivera is strong enough to avoid being on his back and likely won't go for any TD himself.

    But hell I'll take it if people want to bet down Linekers line.

    How quick can you get a withdrawal from 5dimes? Can someone explain how it works?

    I second this noob question. I don't even really get 5d LB. All I see is -99999 on both options on a given fight.

    Those odds change from -99999 when the fight is actually on, between rounds. The -99999 is there to let you know that there will be live odds on the listed fight (not all fights or events get them).

    Bookmaker has more live props, especially on bigger fights (they also generally have a much bigger vig on their odds than 5d). 5dimes is a much better site for general betting.

    some good future bets on bookmaker if you want to tie up your money until next year lol

    if i had an extra thousand or two laying around id place some pretty big bets. i think these odds are all very good

    juventus only -139 to win the league and its easy to hedge. they just sold 3 starters but still. to win 3u
    bayern to win the league -829 easy 1u though lol
    wolfsburg to finish top 4 -263!! would do this to win 4 or 5u this a great bet IMO, if they keep their form theyll finish 2nd again. itll prob be 1. bayern then wolfsburg/dortmund/monchengladbach/leverkeusen/schalke fighting for the other 3 spots..Great odds!!
    roma top 3 -118. to win 1u
    would take a stab at BVB winning the europa league at +900
