Cross-Sport Parlay: Cash in on Favorites

Stacking favorites on a parlay is a square move. However, it’s not always a losing play as we can find three of the best betting lines on favorites this weekend. From the NHL to UFC 298, there are several “chalk” bets worth putting into a parlay for a decent-sized payout. These best UFC bets focus on undervalued favorites as we give each better chances of winning than their implied probabilities.

Best Bets to Parlay This Weekend

NHL: Hurricanes (-220) Blow Away Coyotes

We give Carolina better than a 65% chance of winning against Arizona than its NHL odds indicate. These teams are two tiers apart with the Hurricanes being a Stanley Cup contender with a 13-5 record in their last 18 games. Arizona, on the flip side, has lost seven straight and is just 2-9 in its last 11 home games vs. Carolina.

What makes this even more favorable for Carolina is how tepid Arizona’s offense is. The Coyotes average the third-fewest shots at home (27) and have a subpar power play percentage (PP%) at 18.1%. Consider that Carolina will dominate possession and rack up over 32 shots with a 30.5% PP% and this is more lopsided than the sportsbook indicates.

Even if the Hurricanes tend to suffer from suspect goaltending, it’s the only weakness for this team. Arizona has had sharp netminding from time to time but that’s not enough. Parlay Carolina’s moneyline with confidence.

Boxing: Curiel (-175) Turns Nontshinga Back – Again

Adrian Curiel has gone from a +550 underdog winner to the -175 betting favorite in this rematch versus Sivenathi Nontshinga. While his boxing betting line has been bet down from -130, there is still enough value here to put in a parlay. Curiel should beat Nontshinga for a second straight time and prove his first win was not a fluke.

The Mexican is fighting in his home country and will have extra confidence thanks to his championship-winning performance. In contrast, Nontshinga could have lower confidence after being knocked out.

Nontshinga may be more apprehensive and unwilling to engage with Curiel. He may shell up and fear Curiel’s power. This is not ideal when he is also boxing against the fans, who will cheer for everything Curiel does. Even in a close decision, Curiel has the edge. So bet online on the champ to retain.

UFC: Lemos (-135) Beats Up Dern

Bettors have gone back and forth betting Amanda Lemos or Mackenzie Dern. But it should be clear that Lemos is better than the -135 UFC Vegas odds she has. Lemos is the type of fighter Dern struggles against. She’s a powerful striker.

Despite having just three T/KO wins in the UFC, Lemos has one-punch knockout power. And as we saw in Dern’s last fight, she is prone to getting lit up on her feet. Lemos does not even need to knock out Dern. She can keep the fight standing and beat up Dern.

The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world champion has no means of getting the fight to the ground. She has a 17% takedown accuracy. And when Dern is striking, she’s a fish out of water. Lemos will capitalize on her wrong moves and win via a KO or a clear-cut decision. Bet on it.
