Re: Boxing

So you're getting -131 which is better odds than the -158 Post-Oak suggested was a good bet which is available at Befair -135 pre-commission. With those he has to win by points but you pick up a small bit more for a win by stoppage in second half of 12th. I have no opinion on the fight though.

Mayweather by DEC and Mayweather by 12 round DEC are two seperate bets. Mayweather by DEC included technical DEC, like if an inury for an accidental foul leads to an early stoppage and they go to the scorecards.

Re: Boxing

looooooooool this sport is such a joke. So glad I put 2u on Floyd by any decision instead of UD even tho I figured he would UD him. Canelo won 2 rounds at most there IMO, laughable scoring. Such riggedaments.

Re: Boxing

That was one of the most laughable things I've ever seen. How anyone who judges the most important fight of the year scored that a draw. I call everything in sports rigged jokingly but please convince me that wasn't sketchy as hell.

Boom, I'm a wizard. Feels good to bounce back w a strong 5 fig day after breaking even last few months. Garcia dec was sick value.

You were still giving good advice.

I had someone at my front door, so I didn't have time to explain much. Just wanted to be point out that different shops offer slightly different versions of that prop. Some specify "12 round decision", some just say "by decision". Some of the latter also say "DEC/Tech DEC". I really don't know how much adding in the tech decision is worth. Obviously, all things being equal you want to bet at a site that includes tech dec.

Re: Boxing

further, if your bet was by "UD" or "Unanimous Decision" then you surely got ****ed by the woman judge

Re: Boxing

I was gonna bet on, "Any other outcome" than UD with odds of like -135 (whereas UD was -105). But I already had money on Floyd by decision so I figured that would be stupid. But man...looks like "any other outcome" is EZ money every time with these clowns judging. That lady probably made 100 G's on that bet.

Re: Boxing

Well I just lost respect for Wladimir. Jumps up and headlocks the guy every time he gets within 4 feet of him, wtf that looked more like a high school wrestling match than boxing. Most of his "knockdowns" were shoves / trips, he did everything but tackle the guy (though I guess he woulda scored points for that too). What a joke.

I ended up not betting, thought of taking klitschko. With a better ref, Povetkin would have had some chance. But if he's allowed to just land 1 jab then headlock the guy, and land as many headlocks as punches, then I guess he's unbeatable against a shorter opponent.

Re: Boxing

I am putting 30k on Wladimir klitschko to beat Alex.

after that - 30 +k with Floyd Mayweather.

two easy fights
Easy way to make a ~15% +/- return.

Two weeks late but still upset the books I use did not take action on the Clottey-Mundine match. +250 on Clottey was about as easy at it gets.

Those two fights are not even in the same category imo. While I DO agree that Leapai was definitely a 'bum of the month" undersized tomato can with virtually no chance of beating Wlad (congrats on your easy money btw), Maidana is a lot more dangerous proposition for Floyd. Marcos is a 2 times world champ with a devastating striking power and ALL KINDS of puncher's chance. Unfortunately that's all he really has on Floyd - a puncher's chance, and Floyd is still an overwhelming favorite to win this by decision. But because of Maidana's punching power, I wouldn't risk dropping 30K on this. Just sayin'!

Re: Boxing

Thoughts on mayweather vs maidana? I think super easy UD for Mayweather however maidana has solid power. Doubt he touches mayweather. After the fight against canelo, I don't see anyone troubling floyd.

BTW, when does pacquiao vs mayweather get done? I feel that fight would sell so many ppvs and would probably break past money records.

Re: Boxing

Thanks, 72o_ALL_IN_PREFLOP. Solid advice and i agree with you.

Floyd can have a good chin. Which we never see get tested, ever. Shane Mosley rocked Floyd, but Floyd was lucky to not get KO'd and hold on to defend mosley. then out-classed him.

Mayweather is too good for maidana. Ppl are talking about maidana's power, power doesn't mean much against mayweather, possibly one of the best defensive boxers in history.

I've got money riding this weekend on some boxing. first two fights already came in.

F Mayweather @ 1.10 is pretty good odds. Not as good odds as Wladimir was though.

Mickey bey jr 1.16
ishe smith 1.03
amir khan 1.40 - i think this guy still has not peaked, but should still win, he's got unlucky on a couple of his losses.
Arthur Abraham 1.10
J leon Love 1.66

floyd mayweather at 1.10 - which everyone should bet on
