The best part about 2 UFC events in one day? Being able to celebrate a profit in both the morning and evening! UFC Fight Night 48 and Fight Night 49 were great events for us and made for an incredibly profitable day. UFC Fight Night 49: Henderson vs Dos Anjos was the more profitable of the two as we hit 4 of our 6 total bets. Check out the recap below. By the way, remember to follow us on Twitter for all our profitable betting tips.
Our sixth and final bet of the night was on 38 year old Mike Pyle to defeat 24 year old Jordan Mein. The bet was 2 units at 3.15 (+215), but by fight time the odds had climbed as high as 3.45 (+245) at some sports books. The dreams of 5-1 with 3 dogs cashing didn’t last long as Mein took advantage of Pyle’s weak chin, getting the TKO early in the first round. We lose our 2 unit bet.
Our fifth bet of the night was a dog play on Thales Leites to defeat Francis Carmont. The bet was 2 units at 2.45 (+145), but by fight time it had climbed to a crazy 2.90 (+190). The first round was pretty even. We gave Carmont the slight edge. Round 2 saw Leites coming out like a house on fire, using his new-found striking game to finish Carmont along the fence. We profit 2.90 units.
Our fourth bet of the night was James Vick to defeat Walmir Lazaro. The bet was 2 units at 1.68 (-147). The line on Vick climbed slightly as the fight approached, but nothing particularly notable. Both guys came to battle and it ended up being 15 hard fought minutes on the feet. Round 1 and 2 realistically could have gone either way, but we thought Vick did enough to clearly take round 3. The judges scored it in our favour giving Vick a unanimous decision victory. We profit 1.36 units.
Our third bet of the night was Tom Niinimaki to defeat Chas Skelly in the first bout of the main card. The bet was 2 units at 1.74 (-136). The line on Niinimaki remained pretty stable only moving down slightly prior to the fight. Skelly was able to outgrapple Niinimaki early, locking up the rear naked choke for a finish in round 1. We lose our 2 unit bet.
Our second bet of the night was our first underdog bet of the night as we had Neil Magny to defeat Alex Garcia. The bet was 2 units at 2.37 (+137), but the line had actually fallen to 2.20 (+120) by fight time. Magny stayed out of Garcia’s range and controlled the grappling for the majority of the round in round 1. Round 2 was pretty even based on the fact that Garcia controlled the grappling, but Magny controlled the standup. We scored it for Magny, but noticed many people scored it for Garcia on Twitter. We gave round 3 to Garcia. He came out and controlled the majority of the grappling. The judges somehow saw it 29-28, 30-27×2 for Magny. We’re not complaining about winning the bet, but scoring the third round for Magny is inexcusable, Garcia controlled 95% of the round before getting taken down for the last 5 seconds. Anyway, we profit 2.74 units.
Our first bet of the night card was Beneil Dariush to defeat Tony Martin. The bet was 2 units at 1.91 (-110), but by fight time it had climbed to 2.25 (+125). Round 1 was pretty even, but Martin looked like he got the edge on the feet by utilizing his reach to keep Dariush at distance. Round 2 saw a tired Martin attempting to grapple, but being unable to get Dariush down. Dariush eventually got the takedown and subsequently top position where he finished Martin with a head and arm choke. We profit 1.82 units.
