The odds at the betting sights (bodog, sportbet, ect) have been up for days.

This is the last event of the season - without wagers on this event, the earnings leaders are locked in for the season.

Because enough people didn't make picks under the system used here. 600 picks need to be made for wagers to be availbale for a fight, and it'll be something if any fight on the card even gets to 200.

Are you sure it's 600 for the secondary league? There were fights that had wagers on the last card, yet never had 600 picks made even at the end.

Then why not make it so if that doesn't kick in, then 48 hours before the event, use the Bodog lines (or some other pro-betting site's lines)?

I agree something needs tyo be done to juice the secondary fights up. Some fights only had less than 100 people picking. For the secondary events being slim with WEC leaving there needs to be something done for the betting thats different from main league. Using an established betting sites line rather than wait for the members to pick and have the lines come out on the playground should be the way to go
