UFC Fight Night – Rodriguez vs Waterson Betting Tips, Picks and Predictions

Last week’s card was relatively quiet for prefight bets with much less action than we usually have. Thankfully, this week looks much better, and my early impression is that this could be one of the best events for prefight betting so far this year.

Last week was a mixed bag of results. We ended up going 0-2 for a 2 unit loss on Loose Bets. 1-0 for a 2 unit profit on Over / Unders and had a rare bad night on even money bets going 0-3 for the first time in a while. This was partly due to a really bad judge’s decision in the fight between Kamaka and Brown. We picked Kamaka to win, and the judges straight-up robbed him. There’s no other way to put it. Not a single MMA media member scored the fight for Brown!

After discussing the even money bets with a few of you guys in the Chat Room, I have decided to start putting an asterisk symbol next to even money bets that I don’t at all feel confident in. By the nature of even money bets, I have to put an entry into the experiment for each fight in the even money odds range, but sometimes I just don’t lean either way. In these instances, I’ll leave an asterisk so that you know which even money bets carry extra risk.

We had a relatively solid night in Live Betting, going 3-1 for an overall profit of around 2 units, although we should have gone 4-0 as our only loss was the split decision robbery on Kamaka.

This weekend’s card looks great for both Prefight and Live Betting, so I am optimistic that we can set ourselves up for a big month by locking in a solid profit on Saturday’s card.
