Watch those odds change as the sharps put all their money on Holm
With Holm boxing skills and reach advantage, she will eventually be the clear favorite.
30 sec left in the 1st round she even accomplished a takedown exposing the back shoulders of Rousey to the floor.



I think the money would go to Rousey. The public betting has a lot more influence than the Sharps and the public will think it was a fluke that she got beat.

Just heard on the radio Golden Nugget just put it on the board as Rousey -400 Holm +325.

I will bet some Holm if that number is still there when I get downtown.

I'm not sure how many times Rousey took a hard blow to the head in that fight. Seems like there were several. I don't know that you can condition your noggin no matter what shape you're in. I saw a vine of one of those; it wasn't pretty. I think she would have definitely needed a plan not to get hit in the head so hard, above all else.

Terapined mentioned the reach advantage, which is what I noticed.

That was intense, maybe too intense.

The line may change as the money comes in. But when I made that offer to PITWI I'm certain I had an advantage at even money according to the estimated line at the time.

I'm open to booking more at this time for even money. No I'm not booking it after the fact if the line moves. I just wanted a better line than what I thought would be offered. I have no opinion nor am I making any claims. You don't even get the benefit of gloating. AAMOF Betting it at even money when you can get + money isn't gloat worthy.

It would be like counting Tyson out because he lost to Douglas.

Place your bets now or forever hold you're peace.

I'm good for 50, still a good bet for both parties ESPECIALLY if you think your fighter will win.

I wish i was pro! I would be all over it. Until then ill just be very confident in my handicap on this fight alone.

You're nor confident or you would bet more. You already made that mistake and you second guessed yourself and listened to the public/ploppys/friends. $50 isn't even a bet, that's just entertainment. If you win you can say I told you so, but at $50 not really. If you lose you can shrug it off and say big deal it's only $50.

I say man up and make a bet that counts and show some real confidants.

You're handicapping the fight,, I'm not. If you're are a good handicapper then you should go pro and bet the farm at even money before you have to lay odds.
