That doesn't sound too good. Maybe the Russians are getting lazy. However, I don't think that Silva is pulling an upset!

For the record, I think Silva does have a shot here.

I was just pointing out to the lad that he could get Fedor at -335 at 5dimes... I presume he has a Bodog or Bookmaker account

Anyone with both a 5dimes and Bodog account has free money sitting on the table if they want it...

There is no purpose in betting you at -525, when nearly all the lines currently out to the public are at -525. Why bet a random stranger, when you can actually bet with a real bookie? Not trying to rip you, but it sounds a bit retarded.

Exactly, Fedor is F'ing Fedor, and i see him winning the whole Tourny

I was asking for advice on whether or not anyone here would take a chance on those odds in general. I was not offering it up to a random stranger who bets on mma. So far the verdict is to bet on 5dimes....

I lost some money recently on college basketball so i'm looking here for reassurance regarding this Fedor fight. The -525 seems a bit steep, so I can't seem to pull the trigger on this one....Fedor, though still dangerous, is not the same fighter that he was in his prime

I like to play odds not bet on fighters when I bet real money. Personally I think the odds here are messed up so I would place a bet on BigFoot and hope for the upset because I think his actual odds of winning are better than the betting odds. I do this often with fighters who are 3 to 1 or more and end up winning about 50% of the time which puts me slightly ahead.

Well, I have stuck 5 on him to win @ 3/1 (skybet). I think hes a good fighter and has a chance. I do think Fedor is on the decline now having not looked great recently.

Antonio Silva is a beast. One of my favorite HWs, and It hurts to know that Fedor is gonna crack him on his jaw flush, follow him to the ground and finish him.

Silva has much better odds than people are giving him IMO, if he gets on top of Fedor it could be bad for the Russian.

This SF card is not a card to rely on for raking in cash. Last week's UFC, however... cha ching. I'm not seeing a ton of value in these SF lines. And the plays I would make (certain props) aren't being offered -- Del Rosario vs Johnson does not go the distance, for example.

Villante, Cholish, and SDR are medium square plays I would consider, but I have had no time to cap those fights this week as I was hella busy. I might catch some time to review SDR and Lavar footage this afternoon hopefully.
