I had 25 bucks riding on both Thiago Alves and Joe Lauzon going into this Fight Night, so lets see how I did! Here were the fight odds over at BetUS when I put my money down yesterday:
- Karo Parisyan -180 vs Thiago Alves +150 : Alves wins, $25 Bet @ +150 = $37.50 won on top of the original $25
- Kenny Florian -220 vs Joe Lauzon +180 : Florian wins, $25 lost
So on a 50 dollar investment and only getting one pick right, I still made 12.50, which will cover food and beer for next week’s Low Blow radio show. I don’t regret the Lauzon bet either … he was doing really well until he got caught in those mounts. A part of my mind still thinks Florian wasn’t damaging Lauzon enough to justify the stoppage, but that might just be my sore loser side showing. I dunno how long Lauzon was taking shots to the face, but it seemed pretty damned long.
So there you go people, I hope this little post shows you how you can still have some fun betting on fighters without having to invest lots of cash or ruining your life.
