2010 World Cup: +84 units
2010 MMA: +32 units
'10-'11 Mountain West NCAAB YTD: +22.7 units
2011 Tennis: +3 units
2011 MMA YTD: -15 units
2011 MWC NCAAF: (8-2) +10.7 units 
2011 NFL: +.3 units



Still trucking along this year trying to recover from the early year struggles.  Everytime I get right around single digits I give a tad back....

This is an underrated card in my opinion and I have some great bets for tonight!

Eddie Yagin -110 for 13 units
Tim Boetsch -155 for 3 units
Ricardo Romero +140 for 1 unit
Browne/Koscheck/Rothwell parlay 3 units to win 2.95 unit

Eddie Yagin is my second largest wager of the year on MMA.  Not well known as he was recently fighting in Tachi Palace Fights and dominated Joe Soto.  He trains with Dominick Cruz, and is extremely well rounded.  I had this line at -180 and when it came out at -110 I jumped on it.  It has steadily been moving up for good reason, so I would shrink the wager if I can't get -110.

Wow.... that's really high.  I would definitely bet it for a much smaller amount.  I still think there is a bit of value at that price....  I fully expect him to win.  This is more than just a value play for me.

I was leaning heavily toward Yagin earlier in the week, but Junior has a big size and reach advantage over Yagin.  Yagin did not look all that great at the weighins either.  As a result I have changed sides on this one.

However, BOL!  I hope it cashes for you!!!!

Yagin at 13 units?  Wow.  -30 on the year now right?  I wish I saw this before the event so I could have talked you into buying out of that.  Mark Hunt and Jones ITD were the best plays on the card.

Keep your head up Sharp. I've been there before. It's easy to criticize after the fact, especially from those who don't post. You put your balls on the line - Ya wins some ya lose somes

get em next time!

Just a bad night.  Nothing to hide from, they happen to everyone.  Thanks for the support, and nice picks for 135.

I don't know if this was a shot at me, because I didn't post on here for a few weeks, and hardly do since that other fiasco, but I cleaned up on UFC 135.  The prelims were brutal, but I more than made up for it with Hunt, Koscheck and Browne.  Laying 13 units on an undersized fighter that beat a Joe Soto returning from an almost career ending injury is crazy.  Just like laying 18 units on Vitor over Anderson Silva.  Money management sawman, money management.

Also, despite sharpstick's bogus claims and reckless mouth at least he cares about the sport.  Unlike many wannabe mma fans that are clueless.  It sucks to be down 30 units on the year but the year isn't over, and Cain over JDS is free money.  Bet 50 units on that one.

Also this is the second time you have been bumping your gums to me sawman.  Maybe because you're stuck in Alberta and I am in Toronto, so you're a hater, I don't know.  But instead of directing shots at me you should be sending thanks for the King Mo-Roger Gracie fight which was easy money.  Just like Cormier.  If I post again it won't be for weeks, maybe even months.  This place is crawling with cops and uneducated gambling addicts.  But Dominick Cruz by decision and Rumble over Brenneman are the picks for this weekend.  Just like Aldo, Pettis, Sonnen and Guillard are for the Houston event.  Still not sure on main event, but lean towards Maynard.  No play as of now.  Enjoy the rest of the year.

Ya, that was a shot at you... I shouldn't get in the middle of your feud. Once again, I apologize. But you can't not post picks, and then the day after the fight tell a guy how bad they picked and you wished they asked your opinion before the fights??? You just want to kick sand in his face, but if you don't post it doesn't give you the fair right. We've all lost big, I'm sure...

I've been to T.O lots - I like it here - not stuck, bud. I have Oiler season seats, a membership at a private golf club, three houses. You have to be a zillionaire in T.O. to do that. But to each their own

Cain - I agree, but nothing is free or easy money

Rumble over Brennamen? wow,  not sure about that

Aldo, Pettis, Guillard, Sonnen - Yup

Sorry for interfering, but I do think you are out of place. I love coming to this forum for help and advice. i'm an amateur for sure, I need it

Well next time you want to take a shot at me don't be a coward, come out and say it.  I don't have any "feuds", him and I know the truth and that's that.  I couldn't care less.  I didn't post to ridicule him.  I posted to tell him that I wish I was on covers before the event because I would have given him information which would have at least moved him off laying such a huge number.  I do post whenever I want.  I was killing it on here with another account too but what do I get out of posting on here?  I don't need anybodys help and most people on here are phony.  Watch Rumble vs Brenneman, and Cain is easy money.  Just like he was easy money over every opponent he has faced.  Like I said, I won't be posting for a while.  Someone like yourself that I helped out running their mouth to me when it is none of their business is just one of the many reasons this place makes me laugh.  But hey, that's the internet.  Enjoy the Oilers seats.

Oh, and once again, you're welcome on the education sawman.  Take care.

sharp, good luck in your future endeavours.  There are a few people on covers that are cool and even people I didn't personally care for I wish them the best too.  Get that money guys, take care.  God bless
