The Big Payback – UFC 254 Bets

big payback

Ryan Frederick and I are staff writers at WrestlingObserver.com and regular contributors to this site. For each UFC PPV this year, we are making betting picks and keeping track of the results.

Ryan’s Guide to UFC 254 was posted earlier this week.

With a starting bankroll of $1,000 each, the groundrules were as follows:

  • No more than 10% of bankroll wagered on any individual fight
  • Minimum of 3 picks per show and one must be an underdog

For betting novices, the odds reflect the amount of money won or lost for a $100 bet. If the odds are negative, you must bet that amount to win $100. If they are positive, you win that amount if you bet $100.

  • Jacob Malkoun $80 at +190 to win $152
