UFC 299 - March 9, 2024, 10pm EST

UFC 299 is shaping up to be an amazing card.  There’s enough excitement to keep you entertained all night.

But it wouldn’t be a major event without some bets to ratchet up the action.  

How about some picks and parlays to keep you engaged throughout.

Main Event Same Game Parlay (SGP): Odds -130

  • Sean O’Malley Moneyline (3 Way)
  • Over 2.5 Total Rounds

Our Thoughts:

  • Vera has never been finished in his MMA career, with all eight of his career losses coming by decision.
  • O’Malley’s superior striking combined with Vera’s toughness could create an avenue for O’Malley to win this fight either by decision (+120) or in the later rounds, and taking O’Malley to win in over 2.5 rounds in a Same Game Parlay (SGP) is a way to get more favorable odds on O’Malley.

Parlay 1 Bet: Odds +106

  • Benoit Saint Denis Moneyline (vs. Dustin Poirier)
  • Sean O’Malley Moneyline (vs. Marlon Vera)

Our Thoughts:

  • Saint Denis could be in line for another strong fantasy scoring performance in his matchup against Dustin Poirier, especially with the 35-year-old Poirier coming off a knockout loss.

Parlay 2 Bet: Odds +2012

Parlay Leg 1: Assu Almabayev by Finish (-140): Assu Almabayev is seen as a promising prospect likely to extend his 14-fight winning streak against C.J. Vergara, who is perceived to have vulnerabilities in durability and grappling.

Parlay Leg 2: Curtis Blaydes by Finish (+180): Curtis Blaydes' improved striking and potential to neutralize Jailton Almeida's wrestling are key factors, making the +180 odds attractive for a finish in his favor at UFC 299.

Parlay Leg 3: Marlon Vera by Finish (+340): Given Marlon Vera's capabilities, especially over longer fights, there's a favorable chance of him securing a finish against Sean O’Malley, despite the latter being the favorite in the UFC 299 main event.

Overall UFC 299 Parlay: Almabayev, Blaydes, & Vera by Finish (+2012 at FanDuel): A combined bet on finishes by Almabayev, Blaydes, and Vera offers high odds of +2012, indicating a significant potential payout.

Parlay 3 Bet: Odds +525

  • Gilbert Burns – moneyline (3 way)
  • Under 9.5 – total minutes
  • 1+ Gilbert Burns takedown – Round 1

Parlay 4 Bet: Odds +790

  • Sean O’Malley ML over Marlon Vera (-278): O'Malley, with a strong MMA and UFC record, superior striking skills, and significant improvements since their last match, is favored to retain his title against Vera.
  • Dustin Poirier ML over Benoit Saint-Denis (+170): Despite being the underdog, Poirier's extensive experience and status as a top Lightweight fighter make him the preferred choice against Saint-Denis.
  • Jack Della Maddalena ML over Gilbert Burns (-162): Della Maddalena, unbeaten in the UFC with superior striking, is favored over the inconsistent Burns.
  • Maycee Barber ML over Katlyn Cerminara (-205): Barber, on a five-fight winning streak with an advantage in grappling, is backed to win against Cerminara.

NCAA Basketball - March 9, 2024

Overall Parlay Odds: +264.46

Bet: $10

To Win: $26.45

Payout: $36.45

  • Duke Blue Devils -4 over North Carolina Tar Heels (-110): Duke is highly favored due to their exceptional play since February, showcasing a superior backcourt and anticipated positive shooting regression, especially at their home venue against the struggling Tar Heels.
  • Creighton Blue Jays ML over Villanova Wildcats (-110): Creighton, playing better basketball towards the season's end and seeking revenge for a prior loss, is expected to outperform a desperate Villanova team, especially with their improvements on defense.
