UFC 207: Nunes vs Rousey Free Betting Tip


UFC 207: Nunes vs Rousey goes down this Friday night from the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. Obviously the biggest story line of the event is Rousey’s return to competition after a year away following a knockout loss to Holly Holm. We won’t be focusing on that in this post although we do have a bet on that fight which you can get from our Cappertek page. This post will be more focused on the co-main event bantamweight title bout between Dominick Cruz and Cody Garbrandt which will be where our free bet takes place. In terms of our results this year, we had an amazing month of January profiting almost 30 units across 5 events which was followed up by several losing events. We still came out ahead and have been crushing the bookies the second half of the year. In the last 10 or so events we’re up over 20 units and we’ll be looking to build on that with 5 bets risking 10 units at UFC 207. Remember, you can get all our bets for just $9.95 exclusively at Cappertek.


As we said our free bet will be on the co-main event featuring Dominick Cruz defending his bantamweight title against Cody Garbrandt. Cruz is currently a 1.49 (-205) favourite while Garbrandt is a 2.91 (+191) underdog. Overall, Cruz has an impressive 22-1 record and is 4-0 in the UFC. At 31 years old, he is probably at the beginning of the end as guys in the lighter weight classes in the UFC tend to be at their best when they’re under 32 years old. Cody Garbrandt is the 10-0 challenger for the title. He actually has more UFC wins than Cruz as he is 5-0 in the Octagon. We agree with the line in this fight that Cruz should be favoured, but we think he should be a way bigger favourite so we are betting on him. The main thing Garbrandt has going for him is his power; 9 of his 10 wins are by TKO or KO. The thing is, against a guy like Cruz who has unmatched footwork, he won’t be in one place long enough for Garbrandt to land a big shot that could knock him out. Stats aren’t always the best, but in Cruz’s case they’re telling. He defends 84% of takedowns against and 75% of strikes. Garbrandt only defends 66% of strikes and that’s facing a much lower level of competition than Cruz has been competing against. The way we see this fight playing out is Cruz darting in, landing his shots and darting out before Garbrandt can counter. The only potential obstacle is Garbrandt’s power, but to account for that, the line on Cruz should be way steeper than it is currently. We placed a 3 unit bet on Dominick Cruz at 1.49 (-205) at Pinnacle.
