UFC 74 is this Saturday night. That means I will be buying the pay-per-view as usual. That also means that some friends should be coming over to keep me from going into debt, while enjoying some kickass Mixed Martial Arts and probably some pizza. I sent out some even invitations through myspace, but who knows if anyone looks at those things. If you live anywhere near me and know about this site, there’s a good chance I sent one to you.
Anyway, I’ve never been much of a gambler. I’ve been to casinos twice in my life and stuck to slots and roulette. I won the first time, and lost the second. Since I’m a huge fan of the UFC, I’ve been tempted to bet on fights, since I’m usually pretty good at picking winners. I finally caved in and placed some bets through bodog.com. It’s a well known, legit betting site for all sports and casino games, so I wasn’t worried about that. I put $30 in my account and the site gave me an extra $3. I don’t have much money to blow, so that was about as much as I was willing to risk. Here are my choices for those who are interested:
bold = my choice • italic = underdog
Alberto Crane vs. Roger Huerta
Risk $3.00 to win $9.00
Josh Koscheck vs. Georges St-Pierre
Risk $10.00 to win $18.00
Randy Couture vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
Risk $10.00 to win $10.50
Renato Sobral vs. David Heath
Risk $10.00 to win $4.76
Let’s hope for the best.
