For the third straight week, The Fight Predictor comes away with a decent profit on a UFC weekend! Even though we only went 2-2 on the bets, the fact that we primarily bet underdogs meant our followers walked away 4.30 units richer. And for the third week in a row, we have an ROI of more than 50%. Remember, our full betting tips, which are some of best in the business are exclusively available via CapperTek which is also the service that offers third party tracking of our record.
Our final bet of the night was our free bet where we had 2 units on Steven Kennedy to defeat Peter Sobotta. We got odds of 3.35 (+235), but they jumped considerably after our bet to over 4.00 (+300) at some books. The early going saw Sobotta dominating the striking, eventually getting Kennedy down and locking up a rear naked choke. We lose our 2 unit bet.
Our next bet was another 2 unit play as we had Alan Patrick to defeat Mairbek Taisumov at 2.50 (+150). This line stayed around this area right up to the fight. Round 1 saw Taisumov with the striking advantage, landing several boday kicks, but only able to land 1 brief takedown. The speed advantage for Taisumov was more evident in round 2 as he landed several damaging strikes and eventually gets the TKO victory. We lose our 2 unit bet.
Our second bet of the night was another 2 unit play, this time on Noad Lahat to defeat Nicklas Backstrom. We got odds of 2.85 (+185) on this fight and it actually came down slightly to around 2.65 (+165) leading into the fight. Round 1 saw Lahat get an early takedown, but besides that he was dominated in the grappling with Backstrom going for several submission attempts. It was obviously a Backstrom round. Round 2 was clearly Lahat as he smartly kept it standing for almost the entirety and dominated Backstrom in the striking even opening a couple cuts. We had round 3 for Backstrom as he controlled most of the grappling although Lahat won the striking. Our score was 29-28 Backstrom going to the judges who actually scored it in ours and Lahat’s favour. We profit 3.70 units on the Lahat win.
Our first bet of the night was a 2 unit play on the opener as we had 2 units on Taylor Lapilus to defeat Yuta Sasaki. We got odds of 3.30 (+230), but by fight time the line was as high as 3.65 (+265) at some sports books. Besides being very briefly taken down early in the first, it was all Lapilus as he pressed Sasaki up against the cage and landed dirty boxing for most of the round. Sasaki was too quick to back into the cage throughout the fight. Eventually Lapilus caught him with a strike and followed it up with ground and pound. Our first bet is good and we profit 4.60 units.
