You’re going to love this really cool trick which can make you a lot of money with the UFC.
Lots of people have tried to ban me from telling people this. It is a secret that the pros use to make a lot of money and they are very protective of this information and who knows it.
The trick involves using a little maths and utilising the free bets offered by sports bookmakers, such as Sportsbet, to tip the odds incredibly in your favour.
How to optimize your cash flow
The example we’ll work through will utilise the free bets offered by the online bookmaker, Sportsbet. When you open a new account with them they’ll give you a free bet up to 20% of your initial deposit (up to $100). That means that if you deposit $500, you’ll get a free bet of $100.
Now, consider the current odds for the win on UFC 119’s main event:
Frank Mir: $1.45
Mirko Filipovic: $2.75
Let’s imagine that you deposit $500 with Sportsbet and get a $100 free bet. In order to use the full $500 and to place a “break even” bet where you had the same result no matter who wins, you would need to place the following bets:
Frank Mir: Bet $327.38 to win for a return of $474.70 ($327.38 x $1.45 = $474.70)
Mirko Filipovic: Bet $172.62 for a return of $474.70
Total Bet: $500
Now, while we’ll get the same return no matter who wins, we’re obviously getting back less than what we wagered as we’ve bet a full $500. This would normally be the bookmaker’s profit.
Let’s make that profit ours!
How to use free bets for a profit
What we’re going to do is place the same bet on Mirko Filipovic but use our free $100 to increase our bet on Frank Mir. This means our bet is:
Frank Mir: $427.38 (including $100 free bet)
Mirko Filipovic: $172.62
We’re increasing our bet on Frank Mir as with Mirko Filipovic stepping into the fight with just 5 weeks notice, he’s a clear favourite for the win.
Now, remembering that the total amount of our actual cash that we’ve wagered is only $500, here are the possible outcomes:
- If Mirko Filipovic wins, our return is $474.70 ($172.62 x $2.75). If this happens, we’ve lost $25.30.
- If Frank Mir wins, our return is $619.70!!! ($427.38 x $1.45).
So if Mir wins, WE’VE MADE A PROFIT OF $119.70.
Why it works
Of course there is still risk involved in that Mirko might win. But what we’ve managed to do under this system is bet on the favourite fighter and risk just $25.30 for a win of $119.70.
This means that we’re effectively betting on the favourite fighter at odds of $4.73! I like those odds!
How you can profit
If you haven’t already joined Sportsbet, I recommend doing so right away before UFC 119 and before the odds change. Below is a table outlining exactly how much you need to bet for different deposit amounts:
|Total Deposit||Bet on
|Bet on Mir
|Bet on Mir
|Total Bet on
|$ 500.00||$ 172.62||$ 327.38||$ 100.00||$ 427.38|
|$ 400.00||$ 138.10||$ 261.90||$ 80.00||$ 341.90|
|$ 300.00||$ 103.57||$ 196.43||$ 60.00||$ 256.43|
|$ 200.00||$ 69.05||$ 130.95||$ 40.00||$ 170.95|
|$ 100.00||$ 34.52||$ 65.48||$ 20.00||$ 85.48|
Bet at your own risk but best of luck!
Note: If the odds change, you can work out your cash bet on Mir by the following formula:
- Total Deposit divided by (1 + (Odds on Mir divided by Odds on Filipovic)
For example, under the current odds: $500 deposit divided by (1 + $1.45/$2.75) = $327.38 cash bet on Mir plus $100 free bet.
