There’s nothing greater than just identifying a mismatch in which the oddsmakers have made an error and you reap the benefits of an underdog win. But that’s a whole lot easier to state than it’s to perform and sometimes it burns you another way when those apparent cut-and-dry favorites cost you cash once the underdog pulls off that angry.
One of the most shocking upsets of 2018 had arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter Demetrious Johnson losing by unanimous choice to Henry Cejudo (+350) at UFC 227. This doesn’t mean you should be swinging for the fences on every card with a great deal of underdog bets, but just know that there can be money to be made on a well-placed wager.
2018 was a Bounce-Back Year for Underdogs
Underdog successes were on the decline lately, as in 2015 dogs had a winning percentage of 38.5, but in 2017 that percentage fell to 32. But, there was a bit of a comeback in 2018 as underdogs completed at a 36 winning percent and that trend has continued into 2019.
During 19 events this season, underdogs are hitting a speed of 36.8 percent. Most recently, UFC Fight Night Greenville: Moicano vs the Korean Zombie saw dogs acquire five of the 11 fights, making bettors $205.91 predicated on a $100 bet on each fight. The biggest upset of the evening was on the undercard using Molly McCann (+215) beating Ariane Lipski. Overall this year, the largest upset is Allen Crowder (+375) over Greg Hardy.
