This is hard. I REALLY want BJ to just stomp a mudhole in Joe but my gut says joe is going to take this.

Hmmmmm. I'll have to think

I'm thinking BJ. And I also think JOe is actually a better fighter than Sherk and a tougher match-up for BJ. The way Joe handled Pelligrino, he could easily do the same to BJ and just out work him. Or I could see BJ getting the back and slapping on his patented RNC.

BJ all the way.

err, not true. If he wins the bet he gets his points back and awarded the amount of points he bet with, so in essence he gets twice as much points.

That would be the case if the odds were 2/1 but they're not. Think of it this way


so he bet 5510, his bet would look like this

5510/5510 wiht them both being the same

or am I missing somethign really obvious?

either way, I'm not betting on the fight, odds suck.

No, wafb is right. Whenever you win a bet, you always get back what you bet PLUS your earnings. Therefore, if you bet 5,510 and win, you get back what you bet (the 5,510) plus 5,510 (one times what you bet).

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.
