Re: MMA Thread

These fights are awful. Disappointed my prop on Ferreira by finish didn't come in, feel it was a good bet since he dropped him numerous times but just zero killer/finishing instinct.

Ferreira/Jason/Werdum parlay comes in at + money for a little over a unit though.

Re: MMA Thread

Unless he's either randomly jet-lagged gassed or taking a dive - Franklin should KTFO Wand over 5 rounds

Re: MMA Thread

Was on the fence but unloaded more on Franklin at -130. Line movement kinda irks me though.

The line moved halfway back at the end at close at -144 on Pinn

I agree with this. Franklin is better. This is one of my biggest sports bets ever. Get it done, Rich. You still have it... and over 5 rounds, he's got an edge. Wandy's main path to victory is to finish him inside 2 rounds imo. Franklin just has more ways to win it

Re: MMA Thread

Franklin looks switched on

10-9 Franklin

Wandy's always dangerous but I see this ending with Wand lying crumpled on the mat

Re: MMA Thread

Especially in Brazil. Thankfully (for me) the didn't. Rogan was right in saying Silva looks kinda gassed (rightfully so).

Re: MMA Thread

LOL at the Franklin post fight interview. For those who didn't see it they asked him if the fight had gone as he expected and he said "To be honest I took that hit to the head in the second and I don't remember anything until it was the 5th round" lol. Then he says "To be honest I prefer those fights cause I'm just on the sideline and my trainer is like 'It's the 5th round' and I'm like oh really? Sweet!". Then they ask him whether he remembers the hit he took in the 2nd and he said he thinks it was a kick, whereas actually it was a right punch. What a machine.

Re: MMA Thread

One of the reasons I took Franklin over Wandy is his chin. Great fight by Rich, I honestly think he is capable of beating any MW other than Silva (although Bisping, Sonnen and Belfort obviously are big maybes)

Thank you to Bodao and Ace for a solid winning card

Re: MMA Thread

I didn't run the odds-movement betting strategy today, which is a shame because it would have gone 5-1 plus a push (texiera losing, arantes pushing, ferreira/dias/werdum/drinaldo/franklin winning). Did have money on Franklin thanks to a tip though.

Re: MMA Thread

What did the line do just before fight? I heard wand dropped to like +110 franklin-130? Crazy line movement on this fight, glad I got on it super early.

On the fight line movement convo, does anyone know a site that actually tracks it? bestfightodds kind of tracks it but I'm looking moreso of a public bet % with line movements

Re: MMA Thread

Can't believe it wasn't stopped in rd 2 but I'll take it.

Only thing that sucks is I got in on Rich at -160 when he was like -120 45 mins before the fight. I actually remember when Rich fought Liddell samething happened, tons of late line movement on Liddell and he lost.

Samething happened Rampage/Evans I remember, tons of late action on Rampage (don't know if it was public or sharp but big line moves considering these were all main events)

Re: MMA Thread

I thought the non stoppage was correct, Ace kept trying to maneuver to a better spot. Decent scrap, surprised Rich didn't get the finish but it wasn't a decision I was sweating at all. Made bout 3u mostly thanks to Franklin.

Very surprised Werdum finished Russow with strikes. His standup looked far better against BC but he's never been a power guy and Russow's chin has been very stout.

Kind of disappointed I didn't watch the TUF season because it sounds like there were some profitable opportunities on the undercard that I missed out on. Shoulda just tailed Swoop. Oh well.
