(Now that I think about it, Kinnikuman would fit in perfectly with the TapouT crew. Somebody get Punk-Ass to bring the bus around and pick him up.)
Let’s say, for the sake of argument, that you really want to bet on K-1 Dynamite 2008 tonight, which you probably won’t get to watch until tomorrow and which may or may not turn out to be a total shitstorm. First, you’re a crazy son of a bitch, you know that? Second, we got you covered. Here are the best odds on the ‘net, courtesy of BestFightOdds.com:
Joachim Hansen (+150) vs. Gesias Cavalcante (-105)
Kazushi Sakuraba (-125) vs. Kiyoshi Tamura (+120)
Eddie Alvarez (-105) vs. Shinya Aoki (+120)
Semmy Schilt (-531) vs. Siala Siliga (+450)
Hong Man Choi (+160) vs Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic (-155)
Daisuke Nakamura (-110) vs. Hideo Tokoro (+135)
Alistair Overeem (+270) vs. Badr Hari (-250)
- The line on Hansen-Cavalcante is all over the place. Most bookies have “JZ” as the favorite, at least one gives a slight edge to Hansen, but the lines are changing practically by the hour. What you should take from this is that the fight is a toss-up, so go with your heart. Personally, I’ll take Cavalcante here. The best line at the moment is -105, from Bodog, and that’s not bad. Though with all the movement on it who knows where it might go. Waiting for better odds is a gamble in itself. Whoa. That’s fucking deep.
- Shinya Aoki at +120? Yes, please. I know I’m betting with my heart here and not my head, but at least I can justify it. Alvarez isn’t planning on a long stay in Japan, what with Bellator springing up back home, and if it goes the distance you can definitely give the edge to Aoki. His tricky submissions game may not be enough to finish Alvarez, but it could very well keep him tied up until the last bell, at which point the judges will fall all over themselves to give him the decision. It’s a risk I’m willing to take.
- If you bet on Hong Man Choi please email your home address to firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we may come over to your house and punch you in the throat. Seriously, what’s wrong with you? Even if you somehow win that bet you’ll still feel like an asshole. It ain’t worth it, man.
