Best Boxing & MMA Matches to Parlay

PFL: Jenkins (-400) vs Pinedo (+250)

  • Total:
  • Weight Class (Rounds): Featherweight, 145 lbs. (3 Rounds)
  • Day/Time: Friday, August 4, 10:50 p.m. ET
  • Jenkins vs Pinedo Live Stream Stream: UFC Fight Pass

The PFL playoffs are underway as Bubba Jenkins (21-6-0) goes against Jesus Pinedo (21-6-1) in the main event. Jenkins is moderately favored, being the superior wrestler here. Pinedo shocked the online sports betting lines with an upset over last year’s champion Brendan Loughnane. But lightning doesn’t strike twice, and Jenkins will shut him down with his grappling.

Pick: Bubba Jenkins (-400)

ONE: Lineker (-400) vs Woong Kim (+250)

  • Weight Class (Rounds): Featherweight, 145 lbs. (3 Rounds)
  • Day/Time: Friday, August 4, 7 p.m. ET
  • Lineker vs Woong Kim Live Stream: UFC Fight Pass

From two grapplers to two strikers. ONE’s next Amazon-televised event has a critical MMA bout in the 145-pound division. John Lineker (35-10-0) looks to starch Jae Woong Kim (13-7-0) and get another title shot. The diminutive Brazilian is a bad matchup for Kim, who likes to stand and trade. Lineker is more durable and more powerful, thus why he’s worth betting online here.

Pick: John Lineker (-400)

Boxing: Alarcon (-350) vs Kuroki (+250)

  • Total:
  • Weight Class (Rounds): Atomweight, 102 lbs. (10 Rounds)
  • Day/Time: Saturday, August 5, 2:00 a.m. ET
  • Alarcon vs Kuroki Live Stream: Box Live

Montserrat Alarcon (18-4-2, 0 KOs) looks to unify the atom weight belts by beating Yuko Koriki (21-7-2, 9 KOs) on her turf. While the underdog is the bigger and harder puncher, Alarcon is a more tested fighter. The Mexican is unbeaten in 16 of her last 19 fights. Her two losses came against championship-caliber flyweights. At her current online gambling line, Alarcon is underrated in this spot.

Pick: Monserrat Alarcon (-350)

Boxing: Paul (-400) vs Diaz (+300)

  • Total:
  • Weight Class (Rounds): Catchweight, 185 lbs. (10 Rounds)
  • Day/Time: Saturday, August 5, 10:00 p.m. ET
  • Jake Paul vs Nate Diaz Live Stream: Box Live

As predictable as it gets, Jake Paul (6-1-0, 4 KOs) is the boxing pick against Nate Diaz (0-0-0). Paul is not only more powerful and larger – a cruiserweight fighting a super middleweight – but is more experienced. The “Problem Child” will also have more motivation to win as his boxing career could be over if he loses.

Diaz, on the other hand, might already be thinking of going back to the UFC. He’s just in this for the money. At this point, betting Paul straight is becoming pricier. Hence, it’s best to put him in a parlay.

Pick: Jake Paul (-400)

UFC: Andrade (+310) vs Suarez (-410)

  • Total:
  • Weight Class (Rounds): Strawweight, 115 lbs. (3 Rounds)
  • Day/Time: Saturday, August 5, 10:50 p.m. ET
  • Andrade vs Suarez Live Stream: UFC Fight Pass

And speaking of the UFC, Tatiana Suarez (9-0-0) is ready to book a title shot by making quick work of former champion Jessica Andrade (24-11-0). Suarez is a dominant wrestler who will exploit that weakness in Andrade, who is also on a two-fight skid. The UFC lines are accurate, as Suarez should have no trouble getting Andrade down for an early finish.

Pick: Tatiana Suarez (-410)

Parlay: Bubba Jenkins, John Lineker, Monserrat Alarcon, Jake Paul & Tatiana Suarez
