    I was in same boat tbh, Lobov has a solid jaw, and the juice was coming in hard on U3.5, so boosted the price on O2.5. I just wish I was on it more...


    Hopefully this elite chat dies down a bit, you actually miss the good info/convos because of people parroting hashtags, elitepicks etc.

    55% up for the year (off a 15k Broll). Hope people got out good.

    I know I know. It's not like I've never vented after losing a bet. Just funny that the same people saying how amazing Cub was a few months ago when he wont them $ as a moderate dog in an epic fight now call him a bum for not finishing.

    You are right that it's not always rational, we think we know what we are doing so shouldn't lose bets. When in reality if it was so easy to always beat the books, they wouldn't exist.

    Lobov had Ryan Hall on his back for a full round and didn't get subbed. If anyone was counting on Cub winning via sub they shouldn't have been.

    I like your bd's sir but you do have a :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: in your armour but im sure you can adjust. Betting on a shot fighter like berger was always a terrible idea #hopeyoulearnfromthis. I remember you faded andrade against hill. Andrades upcoming fight with jj will be your first test to see if you can adjust like a true #elitebettor. I wish you every success.

    The old school guys have been crushing it and team elite is getting crushed. I'm shocked. I thought we were headed into a totally new era.

    fell alseep during the cub fight =/ pretty boring card except for a couple fights.. ended up about 10u+ very happy with that after a horrible start to the card.. big shoutout to luca for saving my night since all the profit pretty much came from dodson v wineland o2,5

    There were some fun fights yesterday. And some who seem very easy too pick in heinsight, should've went much bigger on iaquinta itd and perry itd. Also Moreno at +180 was a great dog play
    Small 3.7u win could've been much better or way worse

    And my bankroll keeps growing. I'm a real bettingnovice, placed my first ever bet less than a year ago, and started tracking my bets 6 months ago.So I'm glad to have been pretty consistent with winning this year
    EDIT dodson/wineland o2.5 was a fucking steal, felt so much like a trap though

    Cub let Lobov off the hook so many times. Hit him with something big and then they just stared at each other, with Lobov with his hands at his waist. If Cub had an impressive showing and ko'd Lobov he could have had a stronger case for fighting Lobov's bestie and get the biggest payday of his life. Think he really dropped the ball here.

    I have so much to learn. Keep picking big underdogs who have no business winning... Semi-retired fighters... Punchy fighters etc..

    I know the odds dictate the play. But the odds make me see value where there may be none...

    Another "learning experience" i suppose. I feel like when i watch tape and make a prediction based on stylistic matchups the predictions are usually pretty accurate, but when i rely to heavily on other "elite" bettors opinions i fall on my face everytime.


    What did i learn this weekend?
    -watch more tape
    -do not bet on fading fighters (diego, ellenberger)
    -2 team parlays or single bets
    -young underdogs around +110 have fucking value
    -in regards to WMMA its dog or nothing!!
    -fucking watch tape
    - dont try to see value where there is none


    Two weeks boys till we attack again... Gonna rest up and do my research.

    Any tips/suggestions from accomplished bettors here ide give you a listen. Cheers

    Betting dogs you really don't expect to win is like going all-in in a multi-way pot with a flush draw and 98s because you believe yourself to have outs and pot odds. What amateurs fail to consder though is, what if they have a higher flush draw? You're essentially drawing dead. Try to be accurate, visual the fight in your head once you truly know the fighters through tape study. Dont get trapped by your greed, when you get really good at this you can make longer and longer leg parlays with confidence instead of playing +600 dogs that will never win. Till then, play it safe.

    Here is my advice, take of it what you will:

    I think some people try to make things more complicated than they are. When you boil down what we're doing here, it's just using your knowledge to assign a probability to an event, and then comparing the % of it happening to what a book is offering. That's it, nothing complicated about it. That's literally all that "finding value" is. Seems almost stupid to even post it, I'm sure most in here would read that and say "No shit!", but then I see some things that get posted and I'm like "WTF?"

    So that's the first part, the second is bankroll management. A lesson that most of us have learned the hard way. Figuring out how much to bet on something isn't quite as simple as the first part, but when you combine good BR with finding value that's when you have the most successful bettors imo.

    Here's what I mean: So let's say you have a fight where you think one guy wins about 2/3 the time (66.7%), but the line is even. Obviously you see great value on him as you are getting paid even $ on an event that you think cashes 2 out of ever 3 times it transpires (obviously the fight will only happen once, but you understand what I mean). That would justify a pretty good sized play imo. Your projected ROI will be excellent in this scenario. Generally (assuming you are using roughly 1% of your BR as a unit) this would be a 3-4 unit play for me. Now take another scenario. Fighter x has a KO prop paying +1400. I think that line is way off and that fighter x actually has a 15-20% chance of winning by KO. Now, the math says that my projected ROI on this prop is amazing, but no way in hell would I make a 3-4 unit play on it. Because even by my projections, I'm losing my bet 80-85% of the time on this prop. If I do hit I get paid extremely well, but your BR can't take a whole bunch of 3-4 unit hits chasing props that are gonna lose the overwhelming majority of the time.

    Everything I said here seems insanely obvious, and maybe this was zero help at all. But this is stuff I had to figure out on my own when I started, and I wish someone would have actually broken it down for me because I had to go busto to learn my lesson.

    Well there's a first step to start winning, dont put so much value into what other people think, play the fights you yourself feel most confident in. Blind-tailing is never a good thing, at least when you lose a play you've decided yourself its on you and you learn from it. Feels much than losing a bunch of money based only on what other people think. It's so easy to fall for hype and board the bandwagon though

    Hope you guys — that aren't haters — had a great night last night.

    I ended up -12u or so. Thought Ortiz was looking very good up until he wasn't LOL great for Brandon I really love watching that kid and he seems like the nicest fellow. I totally underestimated him!
