    Lawrence vs Kobayashi the first prelim? Hope for odds on that fight, strong lean there.

    Fun card as we wait for UFC in July

    man, I want to win some money on this card after getting SMOKED in the last couple of UFC events, but I don't know who 80% of these guys are.

    Plenty of time for tape watching their last fights, I'm going to try watch more footage in the future and see if I can input a bit more to the thread, I'm not as articulate as some here but will try

    thinking Rampage keeps this thing on the feet and has his way with Ishii -- looking forward to opening lines

    Yeah we really need to figure out a way to discuss these fights without the fear of Nick Kalikas et al listening in. Sometimes it is annoying even when I get the openers but I am overwhelmed and don't know what lines to hit. It would be great to discuss leans prior to lines being released.

    Is there any way to have a private discussion on here that is invite only?

    With you guys. Its actually gonna be kind of overwhelming if lines for the July events don't drop til the week of. That would give us only a few days to discuss over 20 fights.

    Well I can start a whatssapp feed if you want..or someone else can, Or I think there's that conversation option when sending a message people can be invited to that but not sure how many...
    See what the majority want to do.
    Keep pre line stuff there and then come to each thread when lines out..

    I think a certain type of private forum would work better than a Whatsapp group, but a Whatsapp group would probably be the most easy option. I would be in for both.

    I agree with the private forum I just don't know if possible, maybe Ez knows as he's got blues..
    If not I'm happy with whatssapp for pre line stuff.
    Or that private conversation option but think whatssapp better idea than that..

    We might find after a few events the lines don't differ too much after no discussion (this coming from someone who says they might be watching). I think discussing where lines will move effects things more than discussing what lines will open up at fwiw.

    I suppose that it's possible, but I tend to think people are a little paranoid to assume that oddsmakers are checking this thread to try to set lines. I wish people felt comfortable discussing the upcoming fights whether they had lines released yet or not. Waiting until they get released and then bet hard one way or another to even start discussing the bouts often takes the value out of the openers, depending on which side you like. Maybe a private forum for regular posters to discuss upcoming lines or another method would be good. Otherwise we're just wasting time that we could be using debating the merits of Rampage vs Ishii or other upcoming bouts in just a few days.

    Maybe it's time for a thread where we look for a solution to make everyone happy? Or a poll to see if more wanna wait for lines or discuss beforehand?

    I try not to out of respect for those that wanna wait til lines, but honestly even if there were line maker lurkers i wouldn't care lol. Anyone making lines should be as knowledgeable as us or that's just embarrassing
