All booked up at the Encore for fight night in a few weeks.
Kentucky by 5
Sorry, got carried away.
Bradley because he'll wear socks this time.
I have my tickets to the fight and will be staying at the Wynn.
I have Pacquiao by split decision.
I was thinking the same, split decision for pac man.
He is -200 so the odds are great to make some money.
this will be our first live boxing event.
pacman by KO rounds 8-10.
Oh man! I envy you guys who will be able to watch the game live..
Anyway, Pacman will KO Bradley on round 3
Well actually it's not a game it's a match.. But anyways, I've been to fights live in Vegas and unless you score really good seats (ringside) for thousands of $'s it's not really that exciting. There is no sound during the match except between rounds and you can't see that much except on the big screen.. I just purchased the PPV for $70 bucks which is a typical price. If you go in with a group of friends it's not too expensive but usually not worth it if you have to dish out the whole amount.. Kind of "anti-climatic" if you know what I mean.
Where to watch fight.
Hello guys, any idea where I can watch the fight in Vegas? Are there viewing parties? Invite only?
Any suggestions would be helpful.
I think most sportsbooks would have the fight on their screens, but it'll probably be packed. I put $50 on Pacquiao, let's see what happens.
You will definitely not be able to watch this fight in a sports book for free. Most Mlife properties are having the fight on closed circuit for $70.
MGM Grand...Ballroom...$50 entry fee.

Okay I have a question. Been to Vegas several times first time going on a fight weekend. My brother and I are not huge gamblers and I have never bet on a fight. But hey while in Vegas right. So my question is if Pac is going off at -200 and say Bradley is going off at +150 (I know it is something like +168 but just for ease sakes) how much would I win if I bet Pac and how much would I win if I bet Bradley on a $20 bet (again just to make it easy)
I think I understand it but not sure. Pac I really am not sure how that works I know it is under your bet (and believe at -200 it would be like 20% of your bet so like 4$?) so you would win $24. For Bradly if it was +150 you would win basically 1 and half times. So you would win $15 (plus your bet) making it $35? Am I even close?
Bradley by decision.
Pac by KO in round 7.
No way he is gonna let it go to a decision again...
-200 means you're betting $200 to win $100. So your $20 bet on Pac would payout $30 ($20 you bet + $10 you won).
Glad I took Pacquiao in this one. It was basically a "buying money" bet, but I'll take it.
