    so i checked out the odds and if you parlay Oscar Cota, Ricky Palacios and Tito Ortiz you get 2.35 odds which is madness and basically free money. For you Americans thats 235$ if you bet 100$.

    Ricky Palacios (10-1) vs Walel Watson (14-11)

    Oscar Cota (10-1) vs Jay "the spider killer" Silva (11-12-1)

    Tito Ortiz vs Chuck Liddel.. well i think we all saw Chuck's training footage.

    I mean just looking at these guys records these odds seems almost too good to be true, So im thinking there must be something that im missing. Im planning on putting like 500-600$ on this bet, thinking im gonna make bank.

    AM I INSANE??? is it money in the trash or am i sitting on a goldmine? what do you think?

    It's just 2.35 and you have to pick 3 fights correctly - first.
    Second, you just picked them by seeing the records, never saw one second of footage. It's a recepie for disaster.

    I don't know these fighters too, but I am not betting on them.

    All 3 of them “should” win but when you parlay 3 fighters you compound the risk and in a sport like MMA where there are no certainties it’s always a risky proposition.

    If it were me I’d probably just play Cota and Ortiz each on their own and leave that huge Palacios line alone, but that’s just my preference.

    Yeah after reading these reply’s and watching some footage I came to the conclusion that I was blinded by my greed. I put 50$ on the parlay. Will see how it goes

    One of them lost, betting 3 fights together in a parlay is just risky. No matter how big favourites they are, just too many opportunities something (bad) to happen.
