Three-Way Parlay for UFC 196

Corey-AndersonUFC 196 Date: March 5, 2016 Arena: MGM Grand Garden Arena City: Las Vegas, NV The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns to Las Vegas, NV this Saturday night (March 5, 2016) with UFC 195: McGregor vs Diaz. The action-packed 12-fight card is set to get going with Fight Pass prelims at 6:30pm ET and televised prelims to follow on Fox Sports 1 at 8pm ET. Main card action will be underway at 10pm ET on Pay Per View. If interested in wagering on this parlay, or any bouts for this fight card, all betting lines are currently made available at 5Dimes Sportsbooks. Here is my parlay: Women’s Bantamweight title bout: Holly Holm (-345) vs Miesha Tate (+285) Gabe’s Thoughts: I see a lot of people predicting that Tate upsets Holm, but personally, I have a hard time seeing how she wins this fight. I think Holm is going to have success in keeping the fight on the feet, where I think she will either outpoint Tate for five rounds for a unanimous decision win, or potentially a T/KO finish. I favor a finish slightly more and think she stands a good chance of winning back to back championship fights via headkick knockout here. I am high on Tate but I believe Holm is the superior fighter of the two heading into this title tilt and I see her finding a way to get her hand raised. Even at her juicy price of -345, I think she holds enough value for a play and I like her for a leg in this three wa parlay for Saturday night. Gabe’s Call: Holm by T/KO (headkick and punches, 2:43 round 3) Light Heavyweight bout: Tom Lawlor (+245) vs Corey Anderson (-290) Gabe’s Thoughts: Heading into this 205-pound contest, The Ultimate Fighter Season 18 winner Anderson possesses massive advantages in size, strength and most importantly, wrestling. I see him successfully implementing his wrestling, taking Lawlor down and dominating him on the mat for the majority of 15-minutes of action to pick up a unanimous decision victory on the judges’ scorecards. Even at the juicy price tag of -290, I think he holds great value and love him for a leg in this three teamer for UFC 196 in Las Vegas. Gabe’s Call: Anderson by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) Lightweight bout: Jason Saggo (-210) vs Justin Salas (+175) Gabe’s Thoughts: In short, I believe Saggo is the superior mixed martial artist heading into this 155-pound contest, and despite his extended injury layoff, I see him dominating Salas in this match-up. I think Saggo is a much better fighter than Salas and should be a 4-to-1 betting favorite heading into the contest, so I really like him for a leg in this three way parlay for this weekend. Gabe’s Call: Saggo by T/KO (strikes, 4:11 round 1)) Gabe’s Recommended Parlay: Holm (-345), Anderson (-290) and Saggo (-210) at +156 for 5u to win 7.8u
