What were some of your biggest bets you won?

Nothing for me will ever top taking Serra at +1100 or something against GSP.

My love for Matt Serra aside (I need a Serra AV if he hasn't retired) I always look at heavy underdogs whom their opponent is looking past. This payed me very well when the Patriots just got bounced by the Jets.

Unfortunately the odds makers are getting smart. While I don't want to open up a can of worms here Fedor was a big favorite for reasons other than nut hugging.

bet 10 on bj and even if you lose, you showed some character

same goes for jorge, but his wrestling, bjj and speed disadvantage makes that a horrible bet regardless of the odds imo

rivera was coincidentally my best bet at +400something against nate loving quarry

Oh my sweet Jesus that AV is amazing.

If anyone bet money on Sakara v Leites they were a loser before the bell even rang.

That fight paid me. Never underestimate Leites ability to suck. I'll probably look at the lines and see if there are any good bets tonight.

And Sakara is going to get wrestlefucked.

When was the last time Anthony Johnson wrestled (I'm serious I don't know I thought he pretty much kickboxed even though he has a wrestling background)?

Talking mostly about Bader but Dan Hardy is British which means anyone that can shoot a double will put him in trouble. I would be shocked if fatty rumble didn't put that in his gameplan.

MMA betting was more fun before bookies new what the gently caress was going on. The most I ever put on a fight was $20 or $25 (can't remember) on Matt Serra +1100 vs. GSP 1.

That was probably my last correct pick for the next three years.

Carwin was a decent underdog against Francisco. That was awesome.

How much? I thought that fight was a coin flip beforehand. Either Mir was going to do a three hit combo (his only one) followed by a jitsu. Or Carwin was going to gorilla kill Mir.
