We went with Real Madrid-Real Madrid in the UEFA Super cup yesterday, and they did the business against Sevilla. They scored after 30 minutes to make it 1-0, added onto their lead and kept it till the end for an easy win for us. That was at a price of 20/21 which was rather juicy, all things considered.

In the Capital One Cup, we went with a treble at 2.83 odds. The Teams we went with were Leeds to beat Accrington Stanley, Millwall to beat Wycombe and MK Dons to beat AFC Wimbledon. We picked up the win there too, to make it a really juicy day for us soccer wise.

Let’s hope for more days like that.

On August 16th, it’s UFC. Not exactly the best card for UFC Fight Night 47 with a main event of Bader vs St. Breux – but Pearson vs Maynard and Boetsch vs Tavares should be good.

Let’s dedicate todays sport betting tips to UFC Fight Night 47 and do 3 betting tips for that:

UFC Betting Tips: Gray Maynard vs Ross Pearson

Pearson is probably the unluckiest guy in UFC at the moment in terms of his last two fights – but he’s going to wipe all that luck away here, with a knockout of Gray Maynard.

We’re going to play it safe however, and take Pearson just to win rather than the knockout. Maynard has some great wrestling and has went to decisions with many fighters like Guida, Edgar and Nate Diaz. It’s possible we’ll see some of that wrestling ability here.

Either way though – we like Pearson for the win – and the only question is if Gray Maynard can hang on or not.

Bet: Ross Pearson to beat Gray Maynard, 4/5 odds at

UFC Betting Tips: Jussier Formiga vs Zach Makovsky

When a UFC card comes up, the first thing we do is look for upsets. With the oversaturation of UFC at the moment and so many bloody fighters, we find there are a lot of underdogs who should either be favourites, or not be priced so low at least.

One such fighter is Jussier Formiga. The flyweight fighter is impressive, and we’ve liked him. He’s had quite a few fights in UFC already with a 3-2 record, and he can finish fights. We’re not convinced with Makovsky – we think this should be a 50/50 fight in terms of the odds.

Bet: Formiga to beat Makovsky at 5/2 odds at

UFC Betting Tips: Tim Boetsch vs Brad Tavares

Another underdog pick we really like is Tim Boetsch to overcome Brad Tavares.

Tavares is just someone who never fully impresses us. He’s had so many decision results since joining UFC, and he’s coming off the loss to Romero after a 5 win streak. That can do a lot to a fighter. Boetsch has been up and down lately with 3 losses in his last 4 fights, but we feel he still has value here. He’s fought some really tough fighters lately and we just don’t believe Tavares is in their calibre.

Go with Boetsch for the upset.

Bet: Tim Boetsch to beat Brad Tavares, 9/4 odds at
