I just figured it out a few weeks ago, UFC 145 was my first time ever betting on fights. I won $2.50! Haha Would have won $892 if all 5 of my picks came through.
parlays seem like a good way to make money
You just bet on an underdog that you think can pull it out, and then one or two other fighters than your confident in, and you can win some good money. I was thinking it would be smart to throw some money on diaz since he's the dog in his fight with miller, then like Dennis Bermudez over Pablo Garza (since he's not a big favorite) and Palhares (quick win for him imo).
Glad to hear you won big on your first bet though.
