Call me crazy for this, but since 86 is the last event of the season I've managed to come up with a parlay that will either put me at or close to the top for the season or at the bottom. Time to stop playing slow and steady and go all in. Here's what I've come up with:
$10,000 parlay wager on:
Rampage -275
Aurelio +215 (if I bet/pick against him, I always seem to lose)
Buchholz +390 (seems like a good underdog pick, better odds than Siver)
Gurgel -125
If they all win, $10,000 pays $368,848. That on top of another $20K or so from other wagers (all of the above plus smaller wagers on Kos & Almeida). Good enough to risk a potential Top 50 ranking on in favor of Top 10 or better, I think.

LOL no bud it will make it fail

Bankrolls still count towards to the camp standings so it would be a bit selfish to go all in FTW and risk losing it all and dropping the camps bankroll average, but yeah if you have less than what we started with $1000 then it makes sense to go all out

I fail miserably with parlays but hope to replicate my 2nd league success when i hit a perfect one on the last event to go from rank #2345 or whatever to #15

True, but I'm also picking Rampage to win and my wagers tend to go along with my picks and Rampage is probably the closest I have to a sure thing here (I thought about adding Gonzaga but the odds are too much in his favor).

What do camp rankings really do for you anyway? I could see if you are in the top 3 maybe it would be worth staying up there... otherwise, who cares?

His camp is currently in 1st place. A bad event wager-wise could be a disaster and cause them to miss out on winning the LHW fight camp division.

The Top Camp in each weight division at the end of the season gets a Top Camp badge for each of its members.

Why not stick Tibau in there, he's a good underdog pick imo.

Lytle, Aurelio, Bucholz, and Tibau will profit you about a half mill with just a few grand invested

DON'T EVER PICK GURGEL!!!!!!

i would suggest including someone else in your parlay other than Gurgel. i would suggest Ricardo Almeida since he is at the same odds yet i feel he is a much safer pick than Gurgel.

Almeida, Aurelio, Rampage, Koscheck is the best parlay (odds wise) ive been able to make all season and still be dead confident that each of them will win, and handily at that.
