It ended up being an awesome night of betting for us as 4 of our 6 bets ended up cashing at UFC Fight Night 68: Boetsch vs Henderson. Had our bets been mostly chalk favourites, that wouldn’t be a big deal, but considering they were all close to or above even money, it ended up being a big profit of 7.94 units! Not only did we score a big profit, but we saw one of the best main cards there has been on a UFC event so far in 2015. Congrats to all of you who were able to tail our bets, we’ll be back with around 3 plays for next week’s UFC 188: Velasquez vs Werdum, but will be going back to providing one free bet and charging for the rest which you can get on our CapperTek profile.
Our final bet of the night was on the ageless Dan Henderson to defeat Tim Boetsch in the main event of what had been an outstanding card to that point. The bet was 2 units at 2.85 (+185) and the money came in slightly on the dog in this fight too, driving Hendo down to 2.70 (+170). Henderson cpaped off our night with a bang, landing his patented H-Bomb and following up with strikes to a woozy Boetsch. We profit 3.70 units.
Our fifth bet of the night came on the co-main event between Matt Mitrione and Ben Rothwell. We bet 2 units on Rothwell at 2.70 (+170). The line actually dropped a bit on the day of the fight to around 2.50 (+150) as a closing line. The fight looked to be pretty even on the feet, but Mitrione made the mistake of going for a takedown which was stuffed by Rothwell. Rothwell was able to lock up a front choke and get the submission on Mitrione immediately after the takedown attempt. We profit 3.40 units.
Our fourth bet of the night was another 4 unit play. This time it was on Shawn Jordan to defeat Derrick Lewis at 1.91 (-110). Round 1 saw Jordan with a slight edge in space and most of the control during the grappling. In round 2 he landed an incredible kick to Lewis’s chin and eventually finished the fight with strikes. We profit 3.64 units.
Our next bet was a bigger play as we had 4 units on Brian Ebersole to defeat Omari Akhmedov. The bet was at 2.20 (+120) which is basically where the line remained right up to the fight. Round 1 was clearly Akhmedov’s as Ebersole basically sat back. We found out between rounds that he had hurt his knee early and he ended up quitting on the stool. We were down 4 units on that decision.
Our second bet of the night was another 2 unit underdog bet. This time it was Christos Giagos to defeat Chris Wade. We got odds of 2.56 (+156) and that’s around where the line remained right up to the fight. Giagos hung right in there in the first round, rocking Wade once, but he took a bit more damage and probably lost the round. Giagos started round 2 strong, winning the striking, but then making the mistake of trying to grapple with Wade where he was out of his element. We had it 20-18 Wade after 2. Giagos showed a lot of heart, fighting right to the bell and winning the third round, but we didn’t expect it was enough as he should have lost the first two rounds. As expected, the judges scored it for Wade and we lost our 2 unit bet.
Our first bet of the night was on the first fight of the night as we had Jose Quinonez to defeat Leonardo Morales (who missed weight) for 2 units at 2.60 (+160). Surprisingly, even though Morales missed weight, the line didn’t move very much on this fight on fight day. Initially, Morales landed a big body kick, but Quinonez quickly got the fight to his domain, on the ground. It didn’t take long for his grappling advantage to take effect as he locked up a rear naked choke around the half way point of round #1. We profit 3.20 units.
Overall, it was an awesome night of betting for us and it was great to see Dan Henderson coming away with a huge victory. Hopefully, UFC 188 can continue the momentum next week with what looks to be a pretty solid card on paper. Remember, you can get all our bets via our Cappertek profile.
