UFC Fight Night 82: Hendricks vs Thompson Free Betting Tip

UFC Fight Night 82: Hendricks vs Thompson goes down this Saturday night from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Originally UFC 196: Werdum vs Velasquez II, the event was ultimately changed to a FOX Sports 1 card when both heavyweight champ and challenger were forced to pull out with injuries. This card has a lot of decent sized favourites which is in contrast to a lot of UFC cards lately where top to bottom it was tough going in to tell how most of the fights would turn out. This also means less betting opportunities for us. We decided to go with a 3 team parlay for our free betting tip, bet outside of that, there’s only 3 guys we’re currently eyeing for bets. To get our full bets or to see our third party tracked track record, check out our CapperTek page. For just $9.95, you can get this week’s bets or you could get a 30 day membership which will get you the next 4 events including UFC 196: Dos Anjos vs McGregor. In terms of our recent results, January 2016 will go down as our best month in history. We profited just under 30 units which means we are already close to making half our total from 2015 in just one month! We were profitable in 9 of 12 months in 2015 and even our losing months were relatively small losses so signing up for a 30 day membership is a pretty solid bet!


As mentioned above, our free bet for Fight Night 82 will be a relatively chalky 3 team parlay. First up, in a light heavyweight fight in the middle of the main card, Ovince St Preux and Rafael Cavalcante will duke it out. St Preux is 32 years old and 18-7 overall. He has gone 6-2 in the Octagon with notable wins over Shogun Rua (34 second KO) and Pat Cummins (4:54 KO). Cavalcante is 35 years old and 12-6 overall. Saturday will be his fifth fight in the UFC and he has gone 1-3 so far. His only UFC win came over Igor Pokrajac who was cut from the UFC just 1 fight later. He enters the fight against St Preux on a two fight losing skid including his latest fight where he lost via TKO to the aforementioned Pat Cummins. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out we’re adding the favourite, OSP as the first leg of our three team parlay. Not only has OSP looked good lately, but he seems to be on the way up (or at a minimum, maintaining) while Cavalcante appears to be on the way down. OSP is the first leg of our parlay at 1.26 (-390).

The second leg of our two team parlay is in the fight that will immediately preceed Cavalcante vs OSP. In the flyweight division, Joseph Benavidez and Zach Makovsky will fight it out in a battle of top 10 ranked UFC flyweights. Benavidez is the 31 year old number 1 ranked UFC flyweight. He is 23-4 overall and 10-2 in the UFC with both losses coming to current flyweight division champ Demetrious Johnson. His opponent Zach Makovsky is 32 years old and 19-6 overall. In the Octagon he is 3-2. In this fight, our model favours Benavidez and he should have advantages wherever this fight goes. To be honest, it’s kind of hard to understand why this fight was made with Makovsky coming off a loss to John Dodson and Benavidez on a 4 fight win streak against some of the best flyweights the UFC has to offer. Anyway, add Benavidez as the second leg to the parlay at 1.24 (-425).


For the final leg of the parlay, we go down the card to the opener of the televised prelims between Noad Lahat and Diego Rivas. Lahat is 31 years old and 9-1 overall. He is 2-1 so far in the UFC. His opponent, Diego Rivas will be fighting for the second time in the UFC after winning his debut following his time on TUF Lat Am. On TUF, he was eliminated by Gabriel Benitez via second round sub. Lahat will be a huge step up in competition for Rivas and we have very little reason to believe he’s ready for it. Add Lahat as the third leg to the parlay at 1.33 (-300). The bet then is 2 units on OSP over Cavalcante, Benavidez over Makovsky and Lahat over Rivas at 2.09 (+109) at BetOnline.
