i still don't know who to pick, if hardonck keeps kicking him he will chop him down but don't count eddie out
could you imagine sanchez if he wins the fight he will be 4-1 in the ufc

best record for a heavyweight so far,
better than herring, kongo, noguierra that is crazy!!!!!!!!

well this fight truly deserves to be a hot bout then because, contrarily, i think this is a gimme for Hardonk.

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


Any word on if the wagers are going to be updated???

As stated before... according to the pick % Vera is the favorite and so is Sanchez. Why doesn't this reflect in the wagers. There both Werdum and Hardonk are listed as favorites.

Is there a reason why? Did the way these are figured out change? I've always been told that is based on the pick % of this site (no matter what the actual betting line says).

Well thats what i said npayant, i think when these odds 1st came in the picks % was the other way around and they just havnt been updated

where are the mods???

i do remember 1 of them saying that they would have to shut down the site for a good 10 mins to update it so never really bothered in the past but i think they should for these odds!

Oh, I see. I was hoping to put a little money on Werdum if the odds were having him as the underdog... but I guess they won't be. I'm not saying I think he should be the underdog, just according to this site he is. And the real betting line... so who am I to say??

Well no you are right dude, he should be the slight underdog, and certainly not the favourite if ALL the real betting lines ive seen have him as a dog and over 60% on here pick Vera

MODS WHERE ARE YOU??????????????

Will it be updated?

Let me make this clear. We , none of us, spend all our time on the site. So we get to, what we get to, when we can. So calm down, its not the end of the world. Let me make this absolutely clear, this is NOT SOMETHING YOU HIT THE POST REPORT NOTIFACATION BUTTON FOR. That is for when people are breaking forum rules, and we need to delete, edit, etc. When i log on and have 25 e-mails, I need to sift through them. Having me waste time on this . when it is a low priority , irks me. Anyone of you please just e-mail me next time you have a question. No need to make a thread about it, especially since it's likely only I can answer your question. As for this , it is a algorithm that updates at a predetermined time. If it doesn't update by fight time, sorry. It has apparently updated now On the last EliteXC card the hotbout changed 3 times in 3 days, and people whined. I don't see why as I am not going to try " pick harder" on the hot bout. It only changes based on the data of peoples picks. I am not the sites programmer, nor would I think it a worthy enterprise to actually bug him about the time things update. They will update when they do, and thats just life. In the end we all have the same stats, and chances as eachother. A level playing field is the most important thing to me, and we all have the same field in the game.

Mayhaps I will sell the wife and kids and just stay glued to the website. Everybody has the same odds. Sorry we can't change everything all the time, only some of things some of the time.


Peace and much love
