Besides which, Ronda's a fast starter with pristine finishing ability. Cat is a slow starter with remarkable endurance. Everything points to early submission by Ronda.
So...is there a reason not to place some big cash on her besides the low payout?
I would not bet on Ronda alone. However I do user her for Parlays. Such as if books are open for Anderson Silva vs Diaz, Ronda VS whoever, and Wiedman vs Someone who he will probably beat I would bet on all three champs to win or two of them because betting on Ronda alone will not give you enough but if you can put her to win with some other very solid people I would use her that way.
Or you could bet on her and win a lot but you would need to put like 2 to 5 thousand on ther to win like a couple hundered or whatever the odds are. If you start doing that you always always need to be aware that she may lose and you could lose your money.
Honestly MMA is such a new sport that a lot of the times the Books get it wrong. Also guys coming in from other organizations and guys on the under cards are going to be more favorable bets as the bookmakers do not always and a lot of times get those wrong. That's where I make most my money I started with 60.00 dollars and now have over 500 in my account this is over a year and a half mind you but I bet on most fights on a card to spread it out so if I get 1 or 2 wrong I have some cushion.
Betting larger amounts on a single bets is not an appropriate way to sustain a gambling habbit that is winning. Smaller multiple bets are better safer and more sustaining. DO not overbet.
I used to count cards in Black Jack at the casinos about 15 years ago back in 1999 through 2003 or so.
Anyway that would be my take on it.
Ronda is more of a sure bet for the Books then she is for you though the books love Ronda because the odds are so so in her favor that people will say oh well Ill throw 5 or 10 on her opponent and if Ronda loses I'll get paid big. The Books love someone like that.
