The Big Payback – UFC 255 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 255 was posted earlier this week.

With a starting bankroll of $1,000 each, the ground rules 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.

Paul’s picks:

This is pretty much over unless I win all of these and even then, it probably still is. But I have to try something. My betting advice to all of you for 2021 if we do this again is fade my picks and bet heavy on Ryan’s. All the money I’ve saved on gas this year because of stay at home orders I’ve pretty much lost with these bets.

  • Alex Perez $55 at +230 to win $126.50
  • Katlyn Chookagian $55 at +210 to win $115.50
  • Nicolas Dalby $55 at +260 to win $143
  • Dustin Stoltzfus $55 at  +255 to win $140.25
  • Sasha Palatnikov $55 at +350 to win  $192.50
  • Jennifer Maia $30 at +850 to win $255
