The Big Payback || UFC on ESPN 24 bets

UFC bets

Ryan Frederick and I are staff writers at WrestlingObserver.com and regular contributors to this site. We also co-host the In the Clinch MMA podcast on the Fight Game Media patreon. Ryan’s Guide to UFC on ESPN 24 went up earlier this week.

Thomas Matera is a former WWE superstar and current independent wrestler  and MMA enthusiast. He also hosts the Left My Wallet podcast on the F4W network and What’s Your Finish? I’ll Move with Johnny Jeter on the Fight Game Media Network on Patreon.

The rules are simple. We make five picks for each card and a $100 bet on each pick. We will keep track of the profits and losses, the most fights picked correctly, and the number of events won per person. Obviously, if you’re betting, the only important thing is how much money you win and lose, so keep that in mind.

For betting novices, odds reflect the amount of money won or lost on 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.

Additionally, we will give our “best bet” exclusively on our In the Clinch podcast that drops on Tuesdays. Last week, we didn’t give any picks as we had Tom Lawlor as a special guest for the full hour and never got to the betting stuff. On the year, Ryan is  6–7 for a loss of $370.27.  I’m at 5–6 and a $156.06 loss.

UFC on ESPN 23 results

Ryan’s picks went 3–1 with a profit of $144.66. That was his fifth win on the year. Promise still leads with eight and I have two.

My picks were 2–2 with a profit of $86.92. It way my first profitable week after 5 straight losing ones so hopefully I’m turning it around.

Promise went 2–3 with a loss of $26.52. For the last seven weeks, he’s alternated between winning and losing weeks so if that trend holds true, he should make money this time.

Year-to-date results

Ryan’s picks are 38–31 on the year for a loss of $25.92.

My picks are 23–42 with a loss of $1,918.69.

Promise’s picks are 34–34 with a profit of $468.05.
