The reason there are few battles among the top teams (relatively, there are plenty of battles) is mostly because the top teams have experienced coaches who know how to evaluate a battle and won't bother to enter one just for ***** and giggles. If one can't win a battle one doesn't enter it...
I disagree, dac. I think it's the risk/reward of a huge battle with another Big 6 that deters. I, and I'm sure most others, have declined to enter a battle I knew I would win, but that would likely drain my entire budget.
On the flip side, I disagree regarding the lack of Big 6 battles. I think there should be more, especially for elite recruits, but you often see top-tier players being courted by a couple different teams throughout the process.
