Last time I made bets on four underdogs. The great thing about doing this is the underdogs only need to go 2-2 for me to profit… which is exactly what they did. Donald Cerrone +120 and Yoel Romero +125 were winners while Rafael Dos Anjos +195 and Pat Healy +200 were not. The result was a profit of a cool 70 cents.
I liked that approach so much that I’m doing it again for this event.
For this event I have:
Anthony Johnson +185: $2.00 to win $3.70 – I favor Davis to win but only by a narrow margin. If Johnson can keep this fight standing then I think his power will be too much for Davis to handle.
Yancy Medeiros +180: $2.00 to win $3.60
Tim Elliott +340: $1.00 to win $3.40 as I feel Elliott can make it a very tough fight against Joe Benavidez.
Tim Boetsch +700: $0.50 to win $3.50 – I will probably lose 50 cents here, but this line is just disrespectful.
Mandatory disclaimer: I am NOT a betting professional and I do NOT recommend you follow my plays in any serious way. I’m doing this for fun and as an experiment, not a livelihood. If you make any bets, you do so at your own risk.
Best of luck and enjoy the fights!
