I thought the wager odds were based on the picks on here? its around 60% picking Sanchex but he has the better odds at -105 with Hardonk at -125

Do wager odds ever get updated or is it solely dependant on the picks % when the new event comes in?

I've seen similar cases to this a few times in the past, and they usually get updated at some point...

But it is getting close... ??

Yeah nothing is really ever a gimme..But im liking Sanchez's chances.I normally only parlay the guys i think are the gimme fights even if their line is shitty like -300.Id rather parlay guys i think are going to win even with a negative line then take chances on someone who maybe a +300 but i dont think will win...I'll wait and go wager crazy with the last event....I mean why the hell not?? Yknow.

This fight is by no means a gimmie, if Sanches tries to stand the whole first round he is gonna be lights out

BUT.. now i'm really curious -- Another case of this on the same card:

Pick %: Vera 62% / Werdum 38%

Odds: Vera -105 / Werdum -125

The people who have done well in this game for an extended period of time have there vote weighed more in the wagers.

This may not be the entire case, but im sure it has quite a bit to do with it.

Basically, alot of the people who have done really well in this game are choosing werdum, while the not so hot people are choosing vera.
Roughly stated.

Go werdum.

I totally agree!! I just wish Werdum was the underdog in the wagers because of the picks %, so I'd win more money!!!

P.S. I'm just having fun here (even though I DO have Werdum), but people don't need to bring this thread back up and throw it in my face in the slight chance that he loses....)

OK....I'm probably asking for it!

But thats nothing to do with what we were talking about pookie The whole point is whoever has more people picking them should have worse wager odds but BOTH those fights are the wrong way around, im sure more people picked Werdum when these new odds came in which would explain that discrepancy but it should be updated, and the Hardonk fight was changed last week so the picks % was taken from a lower number and more may well have picked Hardonk then but now its swung 60/40 the other way and also should be updated
