UFC: 2019 Underdogs vs Favorites Record

UFC Underdogs vs Favorites records

There’s nothing better than identifying a mismatch where the oddsmakers have made a mistake and you reap the rewards of an underdog win. However, that is a lot easier to say than it is to do and sometimes it burns you the other way when those clear cut-and-dry favorites cost you money when the underdog pulls off that upset.

One of the most shocking upsets of 2018 had arguably the best pound-for-pound fighter Demetrious Johnson losing by unanimous decision to Henry Cejudo (+350) at UFC 227. This doesn’t mean you should be swinging for the fences on every card with a lot of underdog bets, but just know that there can be money to be made on a well-placed bet.

2018 was a Bounce-Back Year for Underdogs

Underdog victories were on the decline recently, as in 2015 dogs had a winning percentage of 38.5, but in 2017 that percentage dropped to 32. However, there was a bit of a comeback in 2018 as underdogs finished at a 36 winning percentage and that trend has continued into 2019.

Through 19 events this year, underdogs are hitting at a rate of 36.8 percent. Most recently, UFC Fight Night Greenville: Moicano vs the Korean Zombie saw dogs win five of the 11 fights, earning bettors $205.91 based on a $100 wager on each fight. The biggest upset of the evening was on the undercard with Molly McCann (+215) beating Ariane Lipski. Overall this year, the biggest upset is Allen Crowder (+375) over Greg Hardy.

Odds Shark will update the records for underdogs vs favorites broken down per card following each event. Additionally, we will break down the profits based on $100 on every underdog vs $100 on each favorite.
