What would be a good safety bet for me? I'll have around 500 credits and I want to put most of it on BJ. Or should I even worry about it.

Changed the odds only a few hours after I bet all my credits!

NO they changed it because it needed to be changed. Fights are usually 2/1, 3/1 fights (with the exception of one I saw last month thats was 3/1 4/1 :\)

Anyways, as far as the betting system goes, thanks for bringing that to my attention. Is that how a real betting system works too or just ours?


EDIT: Btw 7k on Daddy, just because I don't like BJ's attitude and I think that he might come unprepaired

I've got 60cr on BJ. I actually like both fighters a lot, i just think I'll get winnings off BJ on this fight.

I have to go with BJ on this one.
He is going to wrap himself around Joe like a snake and squeeze.

A 2/1 means that you get 5,510 plus 11,020 (or twice what you bet). If 1/1 means that you get back what you bet, there would be no point in betting.
So... if the odds are 2/1 Penn and 3/1 Stevenson...

I should be able to bet 1k credits on Penn and 1k Credits on Stevenson and no matter what come out even?

Penn wins- Get my Bet (1k) plus my earnings (1k) To have 2k then lose 1k from my bet on Stevenson to end +1k from start

Or

Stevenson Wins - Get my bet (1k) and my earnings (2k) to have 3k then lose 1k from the bet on Penn, leaving me at +2k from Start.


Am I missing something here, or am I suddenly able to win a lot of credits really quickly? Hopefully I didn't just tell someone else's secret here.

Let it be known that I'm not here to make a bunch of Credits, but moreso to root on and support the fighters that I would like to win.

That being said- please disprove my logic.

yep that's how it works, you gotta bet on both fighters to maximize the odds of you winning.
