    I have to say so far this year in these crazy uncertain times. 2020 when it comes to MMA/UFC betting had being brutal when it comes to betting.
    I think i had only managed to have a few successful bets including one where i had won at least 570$ from just one parlay bet then another small one following another fight card i think?

    I think my issue with parlay betting i think rely to heavily on some favorites and as a example last week. I had to much faith in Billy Q over Tucker.
    From the tape watching for the last week fight fighters i thought that some fighters looked good in their precious fights which they had. I think the lesson with parlay betting especially in 2020 era i think i need to think carefully with them.

    Either go light or bet safely when it comes to Parlay bets especially for 2021.

  3. Haven't had much success with parlays(maybe that changes this weekend).

    But straight bets, aside from the most recent card, have been profitable.

    A lot of books are capping fighters too highly(O'Malley, Santos, Edmund, etc).

    So a lot of dogs have been barking.

    I think Tybura should be -300 this weekend, WB -200, and Pereira -160(after watching Khaos's regional fights).

    I could be wrong on all 3 though, we shall see.

    To paraphrase 95% of decent long term successful bettors - 'parlays are shit'

  5. Definitely -EV long term. Fun on occasion, though.

    I'm still new to betting in general, but I was always told parlays are "sucker bets" and that they are a big chunk of the earnings for bookies.

    I've only done a couple small, fun parlays, but learned fast that they give such good odds for a reason. Needless to say, I didnt win one, and it will likely be a while before I place another.

    Nothing wrong with some fun, but if you are actually hoping to make some side cash with betting, I'd suggest staying away from parlays and doing ML or prop bets.

    This is coming from a relative noob though, so keep that in mind. :)

    Good luck with your betting and Merry Christmas!

    I gotta always remind myself to stay disciplined. If I lose a bet, just accept it, and move on to a new day. Trying to play catchup right away is where you’ll get in trouble.
