SuparTipstar’s UFC 226 Best Bet
SuparTipstar’s UFC best bet record to date is 9-16, +8.35u for an ROI of 27.74%.
The focus of my best bet tonight is the heavyweight clash between Francis Ngannou and Derrick Lewis.
We all know what these guys are about so I’ll keep it short. Ngannou was exposed against Stipe and while he hits like a relatively small car and Overeem’s head has completed four orbits since it was sent into space, I still think that is overrated in a heavyweight division where most guys can KO most guys with the right shot.
My angle here somewhat consists of Ngannou not being the brightest tool in the box and as a result of exhausting himself against Stipe he may now fight conservatively (which he has done in the past), while still relying on a KO for a win.
Lewis is always a tough guy to get out of there, as is Ngannou, and he should bring it to Francis if he can keep his head on his shoulders. A finish is the most likely outcome, but I think there is tremendous value on a Derrick Lewis by decision bet.
My best bet for UFC 226 is Derrick Lewis by decision @ 14.0, +1300 (Betfair). This is a 1u bet.
