Cross-Sport Parlay: Go For KO with These Fight Bets

It’s about to be a fast and frenetic weekend for fight fans. We picked three fights that are not only going to get your blood boiling but could also potentially fill your pockets. The betting lines may be tough to crack. But we like these lines. And in a three-team parlay, these bets from the BKFC to the UFC make one of the best parlay bets this week.

Best Bets to Parlay This Weekend

UFC: Moicano and Dober Get Started Quickly – Under 1½

Over to the UFC, we have a potential barnburner of a Fight Night card. The main event and co-main event could both end quickly. But for the best UFC parlay bet, we’re going “under” on the latter: Renato Moicano and Drew Dober will not need more than 1½ rounds to finish their business.


Moicano will either submit his opponent or get knocked out trying. Four of his six finishes in the UFC came under the 1½-round mark while all three of his knockout losses happened under the same duration. And Dober is just the type of fighter to either knock Moicano out quickly or get submitted trying.

Four of Dober’s UFC losses have come via submission. Most of this happened outside of the 1½-round mark. But Moicano is slick enough to exploit Dober should he get too aggressive. Frankly, we think Dober will sleep Moicano within five minutes. The square-jawed warrior has heavy fists and Moicano may be too eager to get a bonus, thus leading to his early demise.

BKFC: Trout Edges Palomino To Earn Title: Austin Trout (pick’em)

This is one heck of a fight and the pick’em boxing odds tell you why. Trout is a former boxing champion who’s shared the ring with legends like Canelo Alvarez and Miguel Cotto. While he’s long in the tooth, he’s still a sharp boxer and can find a way to beat Luis Palomino.

While Trout is “old,” he’s younger than Palomino who is 43. The latter has more experience with bare-knuckle boxing rules. But Trout should be the better boxer here. And as they say, “skills pay the bills.” We think Trout should be slightly favored on the online betting lines.

But Trout has garnered plenty of support online, especially since he’s 9-0 in BKFC and has been a champion for 3 1/2 years. Now, he’s about to meet his match as a former boxing champ just hits differently than what he’s beaten. Bet online on Trout.

Boxing: Benn Overwhelms Dobson – Under 6½

Moving on to the squared circle, Conor Benn should thrill the Las Vegas crowd as he puts on a show against Peter Dobson. This is a tailor-made fight for Benn as he bides his time in the U.S. And given his wide boxing betting line, we’d rather take a shot on him to beat Dobson under the 6½-round mark.

Benn has a significant speed edge over Dobson. The underdog is durable with dogged determination. But he has too many disadvantages. He’s slower and rustier given that he has not boxed since 2022. The Briton will beat him to the punch and land two to three before he can throw his own.

Eventually, Benn will wear Dobson down. And while his spirit won’t be broken, his body will. All 14 of Benn’s knockouts have happened before the fifth round so bank on this one to be the fifteenth.
