So was anyone as shocked as I was to see the odds on the Mayhem Miller-Tim Kennedy fight?

Tim Kennedy +620
Jason "Mayhem" Miller -660

Pretty shocking when you consider Kennedy's already beat Jason. I wish I didn't lose all my money on Galvao or I'd have to put up a sizeable bet on that.

Especially considering Mayhem hasn't been doing all that great lately. I'll usually take any bet thats more than 500+ unless I know the guys is a complete chump.

i dont know anything about tim kennedy but these days it is hard for a pro fighter to be that big of an underdog imo.

He holds a victory over Mayhem. That's all you really need to know. haha.

The sportsbook odds are

Kennedy +120
Mayhem -150

I changed my mind lol. All 190 bucks I've got left on Kennedy... Even if I'm picking Mayhem to win the fight.

Yeah i took a flyer on Kennedy, too! I put down $500 on him and the rest of my bankroll (about $3700) on Trigg, who i think is a lock.

Even though you lost, it was obviously a smart bet considering how the fight went. Theres no way Kennedy was a 6:1 underdog in that fight, and he showed it. Better luck next time bro!

ouch, dude!!!

I try to hedge my bets a little..... I try to find a lock, in this case trigg and put the vast majority of my money on them and then pick a few dogs. I want to end up with positive cash flow for the night, like with this card even with kennedy losing i was still up by 600 for the night. Folks must have lost there shirt on the last two cards because i have been conservative with my bets and still moved up from about 100th in earnings in the sec league to 32.
