UFC 68 Betting Line Shopping - Scalp Play

By Paul Sunday, February 25, 2007
The current line on Hughes (-500) offered by BetUS is a great deal beating both Pinnacle (-625) and BetCris (-650). As the fights get closer this line is going to get bet up so I would reccomend getting it while the action is good if you are planning on betting on this fight.

On a side note this line can also be "scalped", by taking the BetUS line -500 on Hughes and the BetCRIS line +525 on Lytle. You'll need to put 5 points on Hughes and 1 point on Lytle for a gaurantee of .25 points for a Lytle win and a break even for a Hughes win.

Scalps are only attractive if theres a better chance for the dog than in this fight or if the lines are significantly "off" like 100 points.

    Nice blog dude!

    I bet on MMA fights regularly for almost 2 years now, using different bookies like Betcris, Pinnacle, The Greek or Sportsbook.

    I like your breakdowns and comments and will visit regularly before an event.
