Has it ever happened with 2 primary league events so close together?

by the time the wagering page is opened for the Tuf 8 Finale we will likely have less than 24 hours to have our bets locked.

I dont know how the programming works but how come in situations like this the second event's wagering odds don't show up a few days early?

I know there have been a few cases of this in the Secondary League since I've been here, not so sure about Primary League. To try and answer your question, and obviously DTM would be able to answer better than me, it's probably because tonight's event could affect your wagers for Saturday's event and cause some real headaches for a lot of people-let's say you've got a plan to wager $2500 on a certain fight Saturday but you lose some wagers tonight and find yourself without enough money for Saturday as a result. OK, maybe not the best example, just trying to think fast. The once Secondary case I can think of first is when the events were on consecutive days or even the same day-on the second event nobody could make wagers because of the time constraints but everyone still got prediction bonuses.

Alright, enough blabbering from me, someone who can better answer please do so.

Usually immediately after the event has been scored the wagers are up for the next event. So going with the assumption that they're listed tonight you should have all Thursday, Friday, and some of Saturday to make wagers.

It has happened before with UFC Fight Night Thomas vs Florian and UFC 76, taking place September 19th and UFC 76 taking place September 22nd. I wasn't a member at the time though.

I agree that it would be nice to have more than one set of wagers listed. By the way FlahyG you've been killing this game, way to go.

I see what you mean there but I meant more the ability to see the odds for the next event not so much the ability to bet on them.

Thanks Wolfenstein, i just hope my good fortune continues.

OK, that little bit there helped. That's probably because we are somewhat dependent on the real-life betting odds coming out to help determine the fantasy lines. With the event tonight and Saturday's event not being a big one (no huge names or title fights) I imagine the sportsbooks are going to wait until at least very late tonight or tomorrow to put out their early lines. Once that happens we should be able to get our fantasy wagers up fqairly quickly.

I've got my wagers in, and I see good money on MacDonald and Nover. I don't see either of them losing and while Nover is paying out -330, MacDonald is only -105. My parlay is MacDonald, Vinny, Roli.

Unfortunatley for you, MacDonald isn't going to win his fight.

I hope your right, I couldn't believe Wilson had + odds. I wouldn't even be doubting it if it wasn't for Wilson mission weight, but i guess alves showed in the Hughes fight missing weight doesnt always equal a bad performance.

Alright, alright. I was terribly, horribly wrong. I've lost all my earnings. All of it. Stupid fat Gouveia.
