Feelin' Lucky? Wanna Make $90k?

Saw this on the potato and thought it was pretty crazy. Apparently betting lines for Strikeforce are:

- Fedor Emelianenko -1000 vs. Fabricio Werdum +500

- Cristiane Santos -2500 vs. Jan Finney +1000

- Cung Le -400 vs. Scott Smith +275

- KJ Noons -500 vs. Charles Bennett +360

According to BetUs.com, if you place a $100 parlay bet on all four of the underdogs listed above, and they all somehow manage to win their fights, you would walk away with a profit of $89,150. A more modest $20 parlay bet would net you $17,830

That's insane

Except for Santos, everyone else can theoretically lose. I'm doing it for sure. I never bet so i don't understand the lines. How much would 100 give me on Fedor?

If I'm not mistaken, Fedor's at -1000, that means you'd have to bet $1000 to win $100.

Betting $100 on Fedor and if he were to win would net you $10 bucks.

Juggs or Ash could probably clarify this.

Insane is thinking all 4 dogs are going to win on the same night. I will give you 1 or 2 but all 4 no way.

I agree but for $20 Ill spend that alone on alcohol trying to make the announcers listenable.

i'd recommend a lucky 15 bet.

4 singles, 6 doubles, 4 trebles and an accumulator.

if you put $1.50 on each line you would only need 2 fighters to win to guarantee ur money back. total stake $22.50 - minimum return if one fighter wins - $55

worth a punt me thinks

chance of both smith and crazy doing the job.

or lady cyborg could blow out a knee? she is bound to get injured and not be able to continue more often than once every 1000 fights
