UFC Fight Night 87: Overeem vs Arlovski Free Betting Tip

UFC Fight Night 87: Overeem vs Arlovski will go down this Sunday morning/afternoon. We’ll be looking to return to our profitable ways after a disappointing month of April. The card doesn’t feature the biggest names, but is still fairly respectable featuring several fighters in the top 15 in their divisions. In terms of bets for the event, we’re looking to make 5 total bets for around 11 or 12 units. It was tough coming up with a free bet parlay as there are a lack of favourites that we actually trust. Rather than just betting fighters, we decided to add an over/under to the mix to make up a parlay we’re pretty confident in.

In the co-main event of the night, Stefan Struve and Antonio Silva will do battle. Struve is the tallest fighter in the UFC at 7 feet tall and weighs in at the heavyweight limit of 265 lbs. Overall, he is 26-8 and 10-6 in the UFC. His recent form has not been good as he’s 1-3 in his last 4, but we should note he was diagnosed with a heart issue following his loss to Mark Hunt in March, 2013 that kept him out about a year and a half and that could be a factor in his recent performances. His opponent Antonio Silva is 19-8 overall. He is 6’4″ and also generally weighs in at the limit of 265 lbs. He is 3-5-1 in the UFC, but entered the UFC after having a pretty good run in Strikeforce/EliteXC, going 9-2. He is also 1-3 in his last 4 with his only win coming over Soa Palelei. The bet we like in this fight is the under 1.5 rounds. 17 of Silva’s career wins came inside the distance and 7 of his 8 losses were inside the distance. For Struve it’s 23 of his 26 wins and 7 of his 8 losses. Obviously, not every one of these finishes came within 1.5 rounds, but statistically speaking, if a fight is going to end in a finish, it is most likely going to happen early. We think there is a very high chance of one guy catching another guy’s weak chin early which is why we like the under 1.5 rounds. You can get it at 1.61 (-165) at Bookmaker.

The second leg of our two team parlay will be Kyoji Horiguchi. Horiguchi is a former title contender and 16-2 in his career. He is 5-1 in the UFC and is 25 years old. His opponent Neil Seery is 16-11 overall and 3-2 in the UFC. He is 36 years old. It’s really surprising that Horiguchi isn’t a bigger favourite in this fight. His only UFC loss came to dominant champ, Demetrious Johnson and he almost managed to make it to a decision which is more than most title contenders can say. Seery is on the wrong side of 30 and probably doesn’t have many fights left in his career. We bet Horiguchi as the second leg of our two team parlay. Our parlay bet is U1.5 rounds Silva/Struve + Kyoji Horiguchi over Neil Seery. The bet is 2 units at 1.93 (-107) at Bookmaker.
