Along with an undisputed boxing match and a number-one contender’s fight in the UFC, these are some of the best parlay bets today.

Best Bets to Parlay This Weekend

NCAA: Iowa Marches Past Colorado – Iowa -7 (-120)

We’re going to pick the low-hanging fruit here: bet online on Iowa to dispatch Colorado in a rematch of last year. This is a straightforward pick as Caitlin Clark, who scored 31 points on 11-of-22 shooting last year, will once again do whatever she pleases versus the Buffaloes.

Colorado has lost its last seven games when facing ranked opponents heading to this tournament. While the Buffaloes did upset teams like LSU (formerly ranked No. 1) and USC (formerly ranked No. 6), this seems like ages ago. The Buffaloes have not been in prime form and its balanced attack is fine and all. But the team lacks anyone to go toe-to-toe with Clark.

Iowa has not played its best in this tournament. With that said, Clark led her Hawkeyes to a 64-54 win over West Virginia. The Buffaloes are just average or worse in defensive metrics. That won’t cut it against Iowa as we can expect this top contender to win and cover its lofty college basketball odds. Parlay the Hawkeyes’ spread.





Boxing: Estrada Unifies Belts Against Valle – Seniesa Estrada (-215)

This undisputed bout should be the main event this Saturday as Seniesa Estrada and Yokasta Valle finally put their money where their mouths are. The boxing betting lines have Estrada moderately favored and we’ll argue she should it be wider. While Valle has won 16 straight fights, Estrada is a tier above her.

Estrada is faster, hits harder, and has beaten tougher competition. She comfortably defeated Tina Rupprecht, the last boxer to beat Valle. On top of that, she gets the added advantage of fighting on American soil. The crowd will be mainly on her side, making her aggressive style more effective.

Valle is the more disciplined and technical boxer here. But she is still hittable and will need to execute a flawless game plan to upset Estrada. She won’t get the chance as “Superbad” Estrada will live up to her moniker and pressure her en route to a clear-cut decision win.



UFC: Blanchfield and Fiorot Go the Distance – Over 4½ (+103)

The UFC’s main event this Saturday is another can’t-miss affair. Blanchfield and Fiorot fight for the right to fight for the 125-pound strap. And we like Blanchfield to edge this one per her UFC Vegas odds. She’s worth putting in this parlay as her prolific grappling style should give the striker fits.

But wait. For a bigger payout, we’ll instead recommend parlaying the total to go over 4½ rounds. At underdog odds, this is a steal as we estimate this outcome to have better than a 50% chance of happening. Blanchfield’s finishing rate is only at 50% and it’s only at 33% for Fiorot. Neither are exactly knockout artists either.

The most likely result here is a decision for either. Blanchfield will be trying to grapple Fiorot for the whole fight. The latter will spend a good chunk fending off Blanchfield. Don’t expect a finish. Parlay the ‘over’.
