Sure. Take the Rampage fight for example. -280 means, you would have to bet $280 on Rampage to win $100. So if you bet $560 on Rampage you'd win $200.If you took Hamill, you would win $220 if you bet $100 based on +220. Make sense?

ohh ok... So if you were to bet on Nelson it would be an even bet?

Rampage and nelson are the 2 id make. Maybe I will before the fights

Correct. $100 wins you $100. I dropped $100 on Big Country.

so if you bet $100, you get $200 in return... meaning the $100 leaves your pocket and when he wins you receive $200 back from the other person... I think I am on it now.

I made those two. I also took Story and Stann. Browne is -140, Struve +110. I took Browne in that fight.

Take Struve..... But it easy to say when it isn't your money you are betting.. lol

Haha. Reason why I took Browne, is he hits hard is very athletic and Struve to me, gets hit a little too easily. Plus Struve has trouble with bigger, stronger guys. But, hey, if Struve can get it to the ground, Browne could be in trouble.

I think Struve wins by submission in the 2nd round.. just sayin..

Plus you seem to always make out pretty nice when you make your bets. So I would take my advice with a grain of salt. I know if I was going to make a bet I would consult you first...lol

on a side note I am trying to get Roni back on here. We need some more MMA guys on here.

I could see Browne gassing and getting subbed. Actually thats pretty much the only way I see him losing, so we'll see.

Thats what I am thinking.

I don't see how Mir beats him? Roy is a better striker and has already beat him in jiu jitsu contest.
