    And I'm loving 2 fight parlays

    Picked Rory and Lyoto in a parlay last Bellator event and it was basically double my money

    I think Bellator might be safer to bet than UFC they seem to have more guaranteed wins

    Thanks for subsidizing online casinos for the rest of us!

    Just remember- When you lose your bankroll, it's just bad luck, no other reason. Don't feel any hesitation in re-upping a 2nd, 3rd, or 10th time.
     
  4. Parlays work fine in moderation. Especially in MMA. There are a lot of mismatches. Just don’t bet high numbers because weird shit happens at times.

    Personally I have my range at 2-5 picks. 5 is a lot but you also don’t risk that much, so it’s not going to ruin your night. Parlays like that are just nice extras to your straight picks. I like prop parlays like these because the winner is irrelevant, so even a bad read can win you money:

    Sometimes there are fighters who have easy matchups like Shahbazyan soon where you can throw 2-3 fights together. I had good success with very confident picks over multiple events like these. You are basically making 1-2 super confident picks per event.

    I disagree about Bellator being easy to bet lol. Well, at least for me. There is only a handful of Bellator fighters I feel like I can gage like Rory or Lima.

    Don’t fall in love with parlays too much though. Try to make straight picks your priority. Good thing about parlays is that you can bet low unit numbers and win high. If you hit them every 2-3 events you will profit. You need to analyse the fights and make well thought picks. The narrative that parlays are lotto tickets is kind of bullshit if you pick your spots and don’t focus too much on straight picks within parlays. My own parlay percentage this year is at 46% on almost 50 bets. That’s more than enough to profit.

    parlays feel great when you're winning. not so fun when one leg loses and you profit nothing from previous legs winning. best use of parlays is high juice wagers (-250 or higher). you can compare the expected results of betting two sides individually vs parlaying them to see why. second best use of parlays is entertainment/sweat value. don't see any reason betting $5 or $10 to win four or five figures on a longshot parlay is any different than paying to go see a movie.

    Part 1 we disagree on. Parlays depend very little on the juice or the odds and more on who you think will win the fight and in what manner. For example a really great parlay piece last PPV was Schev fight rounds -4.5 at +100 odds. How silly to not parlay that with every single bet you make..

    Part 2 we definitely agree on 100 pct. The thrill of watching Gaethje cash a parlay for me when he smashed Barboza into another planet was so real. The lead up to the fight was real. I was standing screaming at the TV.

    This exactly with me, but with Gaethje smashing Vick to cash a 9 way parlay on that card. G

    That was so fantastic. I don't know if I made money on that but holy god in heaven do I love Gaethje. I will never be able to bring myself to bet against him even against his inevitable showdown with Khabib or Ferg. I hope they book him vs Ferg next for PURE VIOLENCE
