DREAM.5 was kinder to me than UFN or Affliction, but I still ended up losing money. Here's how things turned out
Aoki vs. Uno, $2 on Uno @ +275. I just didn't think Aoki had it in him, and I was right, but I called it too early. Lost $2 on this one.
Kawajiri vs. Alvarez, $2 on Alvarez @ +115. I was confident that Alvarez could take this one more than half the time, and since he was the underdog, the bet was pretty logical. It paid off, and I won $2.30.
Unfortunately, I also had...
$2 IF bet on Alvarez to win the entire tournament. Alvarez couldn't compete in the finals, so my $2 earnings ended up being reduced to $0.30.
Hansen vs. Gill, $2 on Hansen @ -365. Given the poor line, maybe this wasn't the best bet, but it paid out for me, so I'm not complaining. Won $0.55.
In total, I ended up down $1.15. I think my bets on this event were overall much better than my bets in UFN and Affliction, and its rather annoying to still be in the red. Currently, my bank roll sits at $102.45, so I still haven't burned through the Bodog deposit bonus yet, which is a good thing.
I've got a few weeks break to study the bouts in the upcoming UFC 87, so hopefully I can make some better decisions there. Right now, I'm looking hard at putting money down on Kenny Florian.
Let me know you think, both about my DREAM.5 results and events off in the future.
