    Maybe, I just wonder how much passion for fighting Nate still has now that he's gotten Paid, with a capital P.

    One thing we know is that Nate won't tire out. That's why the dynamic of Nate/Max/Ferg is fascinating. Guys that KNOW their opponent will tire and break first...and then they fight each other and neither guy breaks.

    Max/Ferg might be the fight I'd most want to see right now, just due the pace factor over 25 minutes. Would be something to see.

    Ferg would be favored maybe, but not a big favorite. -150ish would be my guess.

    Wee problem here gents. Marathonbet are grading my Aldo/Holloway O2.5 rounds as a loss despite the over hitting. Spoke to them over live chat and they pointed me to the relevant section of their rules that say..

    [​IMG]

    I assumed the O2.5 was universally 2 rounds and then half of the next round? Bastards. Is there anything I can do here?

    Thanks

    Reading through the thread looking at these live lines...

    I would’ve smashed fdngd at plus odds.

    Left money on the table entertaining guests

    Keep fighting them

    That’s a win

    I mean what could they possibly argue? It was almost the fourth round when the fight ended

    Whether they say that is supposed to be the middle of the third round past 2:30 of the round like almost all sportsbooks do it or even if they misunderstand it as 3 being bigger than 2.5 so that means the start of the third round- either way that is a win, lol.

    They insist only completed rounds are relevant to the bet. Obviously they're trying to mislead people with the .5 in the bet description :\

    Do any other books do this with the over/unders?

    We know it's a win. But I'm not sure what arguing with them is going to achieve. Ultimately they're just going to tell me to go fuck myself.

    So why is there a .5 in there? They don’t have a leg to stand on

    But they can basically do whatever they want

    Keep doing live chat with different people

    You’re bound to find someone who isn’t a moron

    Yea there is logically no way they could grade that as a loss.

    They must have a new person grading the bets because how have they done it in past weeks and months? That same stupid way? If so, over 4.5 would mean that they have to complete round 5 making it the same prop as fight goes distance. It makes no sense. I know of some rare books that did it the other stupid way I mentioned where 3 is bigger than 2.5 so over wins if it starts round 3. But not like these clowns at Marathon are suggesting with a reference to their rules. Just saying.

    If they grade it as a loss - withdraw any remaining money from them - tell them why you did it and that they will never get another cent from you. Tell them you are making it as public as you can about their ruling compared to other sites. Sure they may not give a fuck if you are a winning bettor but its all you can really do.

    Did you actively refresh near the end of the rounds multiple times? The link to Live In-Play comes and goes quickly and is only there at the bottom of the Fighting column on the Straight & RIF page for thirty seconds or so at a time. I know it was there for me because I got a live bet on fight does not go distance after round 2 of the main event.

    Interesting two FOTN tonight for Gaethje/Alvarez and Oliveira/Medeiros, no POTN. I hope 5Dimes pay for both as I have Gaethje/Alvarez at +190.

    it clearly states this in the terms and conditions unfortunately, a few people have had the same problem, been like this for a while now, it used to happen at a couple other books and they paid out once enough ppl complained. but it wasn't in these other books t&c's. it's stupid yeah.

    cant do anything if its in the t&c's sorry. they do it because they just got lazy and copied the type of bet from football betting amongst others. over/under a certain amount of goals are gigantic money earners for euro bookies some of the biggest prop markets in any sport in the world. but unlike football or rugby, basketball, hgh-ball etc where you literally can't have half points, mma obviously is much different as half a round is half a round.
