Our current run of results is not my worst run ever, but after Saturday night, it definitely feels like my unluckiest.
At the beginning of every year, I always go back over the previous 12 months of our bets to see if there are any areas that I can tighten up and improve.
Last month’s Bellator cards were awful for betting because they stacked each event full of one-sided squash matches. Bellator 238 looks much better because it features a couple of very competitive fights between highly skilled athletes.
We also get to watch the next leg in the Featherweight tournament, and we also see Cris Cyborg and Sergio Pettis making their Bellator 238 debut.
Last week many of you spent over 25 hours in the Livestreams with me researching the fights for UFC 246. After all that hard work, we ended up with less than nothing. All we have to show for our effort is having to watch our guy getting Deathshotted within a minute.
First of all, I want to say a big thank you to everyone that joined me for the Bellator 237 Livestream research session. Together we spent 7 hours researching Bellator 237 and eventually came up with a decent bet that I feel everyone watching agreed was good value.
UFC 246 sees the return of Conor McGregor, the biggest name in MMA. Conor’s name value will bring an increase in liquidity to this event that we rarely see in our sport. This enables us to jump into this card a little earlier than usual and lock in our bets before the odds move too much.
As we come to the end of 2019, it feels great to put another good year behind us as we’ve made a solid profit in both prefight and Live Betting over the last 12 months.
In the recent break-in UFC schedule, I identified a couple of areas where I can improve, and I’ll be spending more time analyzing my results during the next break in January to try and identify any other areas that I can tighten up. Hopefully, the changes that I make will help us make even more money in 2020.
We kicked off December with solid profits on both prefight and Live Betting last weekend at UFC Washington.
We took plenty of high-risk gambles in November, which turned out to be a mixed bag of results. We hit some decent ones like Arlene Blencowe and Darren Till, but unfortunately lost more than we won. We ended up closing out the month with a small overall loss of -2.44 units. It is worth noting that the split decision loss on Klidson Abreu was a 2.70 unit swing that would have put us in a small profit for the month.
We did a bit better on Live Betting, but nothing major. We ended up banking an overall profit of 2 units.
It goes without saying that November was a tricky month for betting on MMA! Thankfully December looks like it could be much better. I’ve already identified a couple of rock-solid prefight bets for us over the next few weeks.
December is shaping up to be a massive month for betting on MMA. We have 1 KSW event, 2 Bellator events, 3 UFC events, and a stacked Bellator / Rizin collaboration event on the 29th of December. As ever, I’ll be fully researching all of these events to give us the best chance of ending the month with a profit.
I’m really sorry that I am posting this betting tip for Bellator 234 late. The sheer number of fights that we are currently getting every week means that I am running behind schedule every week at the moment. After the upcoming break in UFC schedule, I’ll be able to get things back on track.
