Good Day Enthusiasts. As we do each Monday (in today’s case Tuesday)… Let us account but again we’ll explain our methodology…
(All GambLou.com releases are understood to be a standard and hypothetical $100 per position unless otherwise stated. We use $100 to easily track our results as every GambLou.com release is accounted for each Monday AM. Public accounting allows us to display our profitability while providing our readers with 100% transparency).
UFC 187 was a success based on two fighters, Rafael Natal and Daniel Cormier. We lost a half unit with both Mike Pyle and John Moraga as well a full unit on Moraga in the point’s handicap. Raffy Natal was the recipient of a split decision that went our way at +340 (that was a half unit position). Daniel Cormier, as we professed to anyone that would listen and wrote in the Gamblou.com and ToddsTake.com Saturday blogs was live as hell in this spot against the most dangerous Anthony Johnson. We also shouted Cormier (via Twitter) weeks prior to the fight at -130 which is something we’ll discuss.
We had Cormier early at opening -130 when the numbers broke. We followed that up with another play when the line compressed to -110, we took yet another position at +100 and finally another couple of units +110 on the day of the fight. We did so for two reasons. First, we trust our handicapping. Second, when we feel we are on the correct side we strongly desire to get the best of the number not the worst (as all can see we believed the Cormier number would increase not decrease and we were flexing our position in order to take away the disadvantage we had on the opening price of -130). When all was said and done we had 5 units (our own units of play) on Cormier at an average price of -103.
We never use anything but halves or full units of play for our accounting ‘unless otherwise stated”, in the case of Cormier and rare other occasions a 2 unit wager will be employed. We encourage those to read us carefully for (‘don’t be shy’) was our way of saying bet the farm on Cormier. Our regular readers did not miss this tip.
