As stated in the title, do you think this event(Affliction: Banned) should have a hot bout? I personally think that since the picks are so lopsided that there should not be a hot bout for this event. I understand that the closest bout on the card(percentage wise) is deemed the hot bout for every event.
However, with an overwhelming 71% picking Mark Hominick and only a mere 29% picking Savant Young, I don't think there should be a hot bout. I believe that a hot bout should be A LOT closer percentage wise. There should be a % cut off for the hot bout(60-40 maybe). As with this hot bout you will either have a majority of the players get the 10+ points or a small minority. It seems unfair, if you miss this hot bout it will greatly effect your score as the majority will get the extra points. Then, if the minority picks the hot bout correctly, the majority will be left without the extra points. This would be great for the minority.
Yet, it is a closer fight than the percentages show and it is risky to go with Savant.
I am sure this will get shot down as the majority picking Mark like that it's the hot bout, but I think that it makes sense and this fight should be deemed as a regular fight and not include double the points. Well, let me know what you guys think and feel free to voice your opinions.
Just think, if it were to drop another 9% Savant would be considered an Underdog!
