Las Vegas Hosts Fight Card
Saturday’s UFC Fight Card features some quality fights and we have included three of the best in our parlay.
Headlining our parlay at the sportsbook is Khail Rountree versus Chris Daukaus, which could end the parlay in style.
UFC betting odds are available for every fight on the card.
Shooting for Four
Sport betting markets have Rountree at -170 to beat Daukaus, and we think that’s good shopping for the light heavyweight.
The 33-year-old comes off three consecutive wins over the likes of Dustin Jacoby, Karl Roberson, and Modestas Bukauskas.
Daukaus has some top-level experience, but the 12-6 fighter hasn’t looked his best over the last couple of years, and he could eat a big punch from Rountree.
He wants to make a run at the light heavyweight title, which is a possibility for someone possessing his power.
“As weird as it seems, it feels like the beginning,” Rountree said. “Even on a three-fight win streak, I feel like, ‘Okay, now I’m finally starting to realize what it takes to make my dreams come true.”
We expect him to come out swinging, and if the fight gets past the first round, Rountree’s UFC live betting odds should be shorter than -170.
He’s one of the more exciting fighters on the Fight Night card, and there could be solid online gambling support for him on Saturday.
- Pick: Khalil Rountree (-170)

Nchukwi Has Upside
Tafon Nchukwi’s UFC odds to beat AJ Dobson are -145, so it’s good to see some betting support for the talented fighter.
His time in the UFC hasn’t been easy, which started with a win against Jamie Pickett in 2020. However, he quickly realized how fortunes can change when getting knocked out by New Zealand sensation Carlos Ulberg in the first round last year.
Nchukwi has had over a year off the scene, which should have given him enough time to clear the cobwebs.
Dobson is 0-2 since arriving in the UFC last year, so he’s desperate to get his first win on the board.
The 6-2 MMA fighter lost to Jacob Malkoun and Armen Petrosyan by decision, so at least he has six rounds of action under his belt.
However, we don’t have much confidence with the +115 underdog, who could drift with bookmakers on fight night.
- Pick: Tafon Nchukwi (-145)
Glee for McGhee
Marcus McGhee could bring glee for bettors at -365, and we expect him to get the parlay off to a cracking start.
The 7-1 fighter scored a Round 2 submission win over Journey Newson in his UFC debut, and although Newson isn’t much of an opponent, neither is JP Buys, who he faces on Saturday.
Buys is 9-5, and he has been given plenty of chances by the company to prove his worth. However, we don’t see him improving enough to beat McGhee, hence the +265 odds for Buys.
We always like to start our weekly parlay with a comfortable victory, and McGhee is our man.
- Pick: Marcus McGhee (-365)
