At +285.. coleman is a bad bet. Coleman has to win that fight more then 35% of the time to make it profitable. He doesn't win that fight >35% of the time.
But if you are going to bet on him, go to http://www.pinnaclesports.com
Better odds for coleman.. you can get some more positive equity on your bet.
I wouldn't throw $100 down on it, but sometimes when things have that big of odds I like to throw $20 on them or so. It is amazing how many times they work out.
Not enough times to make it profitable, unless you are using other variables to make your picks.
dude trust me i have bet before, i have even stated so in aronymans bet thread where i lost 50 euros on a pick he made. not to mention i am a pro online poker player, however i rarely bet sports.
i think the confusion may have come because i put that slash in there. an earlier post in this thread said america and canadian/european use a different system. decimal and fraction.
if you look at the rich franklin fight, rich is 2.05 which means if you bet 100, you win 205 back. your bet account only goes up only 105 bucks. if you bet henderson at 1.73, if you bet 100, you win 173 back, hence 73 dollar profit.
i know its weird switching systems i sometimes get confused but im 99% sure this is the way it works for canadian/european decimal system.
edit: when i switch to american system tab. it says franklin +105, henderson -137.
edit: when i swith to fraciton tab franklin 21/20, henderson 8/11.
i dunno, decimal worsks best with my brain, its easy. you can easily visually see how much $ you make for a 1 dollar bet, 2.05$ for franklin, etc.
I also play poker professionally.. where do you play? and what stakes?
My betting advice is to bet on Franklin and Marcus Davis. Both winners.
You can get Franklin at +110 on most sites still.. (+120 on pinnacle... best site.. no USA tho)
Marcus is like -135 on most sites..
I got my bets in super early, and got franklin at +125 and Marcus at -120
