We tried to hit a big dog parlay last weekend. And this time, we’re rolling with the favorites. Between college football and the UFC this Saturday and the NFL’s return on Sunday, there are more than enough chalk bets to stack in a three-leg parlay. Going by these NCAAF, NFL, and UFC lines, this combo can nearly double your wager should it cash.
Parlay Three Favorites at Nearly +200
NCAAF: Nebraska Cornhuskers vs Colorado Buffaloes (-3)
– Total: Over 58½ (-110), Under 58½ (-110)
– Day/Time: Saturday, 12:00 p.m. ET
– Cornhuskers vs Buffaloes Live Stream: ESPN
We’re going back to the well on this one. Colorado not only covered the spread but outright beat TCU in an eyebrow-raising win for “Coach Prime” and his boys. Now, they go home to Folsom Field with plenty of momentum. Could this be a letdown spot? Nay. In fact, we’ll bet online on Colorado at -145 to make it two straight wins.
Nebraska made too many mistakes in Week 1 and looked like a team easily rattled. This team also lost eight of its last 10 road games last season. Sanders proved he wasn’t just a players’ coach last week but that he could also out-coach his peers.
Coach @DeionSanders is about more than just good speeches, he is about COACHING!
Colorado & TCU saw nearly identical plays, but strikingly different results.

UFC 293: Carlos Ulberg (-260) vs Da Un Jung (+210)
– Total: Over 1½ (-115), Under 1½ (-115)
– Day/Time: Saturday, 9:25 p.m. ET
– Carlos Ulberg vs Da Un Jung Live Stream: UFC Fight Pass
Carlos Ulberg has quietly been one of the UFC’s best 205-pound fighters. He is one of the most skilled kickboxers and has won four straight fights, three coming by knockout. The UFC is feeding Da Un Jung to him, who is tough and “well-rounded” but outmatched here. It’s not always you get to say that -260 is a discounted rate for an unranked fighter. But it is here.
Ulberg should be able to keep Jung at range where he will pick him apart. The best Jung can do is to try to grind out a decision here because if he stands and trades with the kickboxer, he is getting slept. Betting the total to go under 1½ is also worth betting online. But for this parlay, chalk Ulberg.
Pick: Carlos Ulberg (-260)
NFL: Arizona Cardinals vs Washington Commanders (-7)
– Total: Over 38 (-110), Under 38 (-110)
– Day/Time: Sunday, 1 p.m. ET
– Cardinals vs Commanders Live Stream: NFL Game Pass
We feel some type of way relying on Washington as an NFL pick. But it is against possibly the worst team since Hue Jackson’s Cleveland Browns. The Cardinals are terrible and are making no effort to hide it. This team has a career third-string quarterback as the starter, a fading defense, and a rookie head coach who saw his stacked Eagles defense get lit up in the Super Bowl.
The Commanders don’t make a lot of positives. But Ron Rivera is coaching for his job under a new regime. Sam Howell is a solid dual-threat quarterback with plenty to prove. And the stout defensive line gets better with the return of Chase Young. How can Washington possibly blow this? It can’t even if it tried.
