UFC 210: Cormier vs Johnson II is just a week away and we’re pumped! Coming off a 3 week break always makes a card feel extra special. Even more so when it’s a pay-per view featuring a great title defense in the main event! In terms of our bets, we’re coming off a profit of more than 10 units in a clean sweep at the UFC London card and we’ll be looking to add to that on Saturday night. You can tail all our bets for just $9.95 by signing up on our Cappertek profile.
Cormier/Johnson – Under 1.5 Rounds
In their first meeting, Rumble managed to rock Cormier early. As one of the most powerful men in the UFC, Johnson tends to do this to a lot of his opponents. What Johnson is not known for is good cardio. If he is going to win, it is almost certainly a TKO and it is almost certainly early. You could bet Johnson to win by TKO which pays 2.33 (+133), but I’d prefer the protection offered by the under 1.5 rounds which sits at a similar line of 2.30 (+130). Basically betting the under 1.5 rounds instead of the Johnson by TKO prop comes down to the fact that for basically the same line we get protection against a Cormier finish early and we only give up a late TKO by Johnson which we see as pretty unlikely anyway given his past cardio issues.
Bellator 144: Halsey vs Carvalho goes down tomorrow night and kicks off back to back nights of betting action as we have this one free play on Bellator 144 as well as a free betting tip for UFC Dublin: Holohan vs Smolka and at least 2 paid tips only available via Cappertek. Our bets have been on a decent roll lately as we we’ve profited at 3 straight events. Overall, in 2015, we have had some big profits like we did in 2014, but we have managed to avoid the big meltdowns that seemed to visit us more often a year ago. This means our ROI for 2015 is almost double what it was in 2014 at 13.33%. You can get the full details of all our bets in our betting track record.
UFC Fight Night 67: Condit vs Alves goes down tomorrow night from Goiania, Brazil. These tips will be somewhat abbreviated as we haven’t had as much time to write this post as usual. Since our betting tips have not been at the level we’d like to be at as of late, this event will be entirely free!
UFC Fight Night 62: Maia vs LaFlare is just a few days away and we already posted our free betting tip as well as 2 other tips to our CapperTek profile. Sign up and deposit at Draft Kings to get in on the action. A $5 deposit will get you a 100% first deposit bonus, a free entry to the $25k tourney and 30 days of our betting tips (a $24.95 value) free if you follow these steps. One thing we really liked about Draft Kings previously is the relatively high salaries meant it took a lot of skill to fit a good mix of guys on your team for under $50k. Unfortunately, for UFC Fight Night 62, it seems they have abandoned this strategy in favour of lower salaries that make the game easier overall. The bad thing about this is there’s more luck and less skill involved, especially long term where you would really get paid off for consistently picking strong underdogs.
It was a decent night of betting for us as we went 2-1 for +3.76 units at UFC 185: Pettis vs Dos Anjos. Unlike a lot of handicappers, we managed to avoid betting both the Pettis brothers as huge favourites who both went down in flames. Anthony Pettis lost his belt to Rafael Dos Anjos and little brother Sergio Pettis was knocked out by Ryan Benoit. We are defining ourselves as one the best MMA betting service in the industry (especially at our price point) as indicated by our near top position in the CapperTek standings. This is especially true when only considering services that are MMA focused and have provided more than 15-20 picks over the last 60 days. We’ll chalk UFC 185 up as a good day and we’ll be back for UFC Fight Night 62: Maia vs LaFlare early this week with a free betting tip. Our full betting tips will be out later in the week as well as a fantasy preview. By the way, sign up and deposit $5 at Draft Kings then follow these steps to get 30 days of our betting tips for free!
