After a relatively boring Super Wild Card weekend, we head to the NFL Divisional Round where the favourites could once again dominate. The chalk went 5-1 last week with the only upset coming by way of San Francisco over Dallas, the closest matchup per the NFL betting odds. Our parlay got snapped before it got started and we went 3-3 as we look to tighter games this week.
UFC 269 Best Betting Picks: Go Big With A Parlay and a Dog Pick
The UFC’s final pay-per-view of the year kicks off this Saturday, December 11 from Las Vegas with two championship fights. Lightweight champ Charles Oliveira defends against rising superstar Dustin Poirier while the greatest female fighter of all time, Amanda Nunes defends her bantamweight strap against Julianna Pena. We went a perfect 3-0 with our UFC 268 picks and will look to stay hot.
It will be an explosive send-off to 2021 when Charles Oliveira defends his lightweight strap against Dustin Poirier to headline UFC 269 this Saturday, December 11. Oliveira (31-8-0) and Poirier (28-6-0) are fan favourites who have won 17 of their last 18 fights and are finishers. Expect an exciting back-and-forth with a high chance of a finish.
In the co-main event, two-division champion Amanda Nunes puts her bantamweight title on the line against Julianna Pena. Nunes (21-4-0) has not lost in over seven years while Pena (10-4-0) is as feisty as challengers come.

UFC 269 Picks & Predictions
Our UFC 268 best betting picks cashed big as we nailed all three bets and if you parlayed all three, you’d have made almost triple your stake. For UFC 269, we’ll get right back at it with another parlay featuring the two title fights and an underdog.
UFC Welterweight Championship: Charles Oliveira (2.45) vs Dustin Poirier (1.59)
Simply put: do not expect this fight to go to a decision (1.27). Thirteen of Oliveira’s and Poirier’s 16 combined fights have ended in either a knockout or submission. Oliveira has the most finishes in UFC history while Poirier has the most knockout victories in the division.
But between the two, Poirier is a much better striker than Oliveira. He has grown more patient over the years and should keep this fight standing to win. Oliveira could end the fight with his hands or via submission. But he is still too hittable and that could be his undoing.
SBR’s pick — Poirier (1.59). Oliveira proved he has an iron chin by surviving against Michael Chandler. But Poirier will finish him on their feet before the third round to finally become a UFC champion.
UFC Women’s Strawweight Championship: Amanda Nunes (1.13) vs Julianna Pena (6.00)
At 6.00, the odds are kind to Pena here who is outmatched against Nunes. Pena is aggressive and has a dangerous ground game, but her striking leaves plenty to be desired. Nunes will stuff her takedowns and keep the fight standing where she can light her up en route to a T/KO.
SBR’s pick — Nunes (1.13). There is still some value in betting Nunes here. But to get more value in her, throw her in a parlay with Poirier or bet her to win inside the distance at 1.36.
Parlay: Poirier (1.59) and Nunes (1.33) at 2.11
Welterweight: Geoff Neal (1.95) vs Santiago Ponzinibbio (1.87)
This is a contender to win Fight of the Night for the evening as two high-level strikers meet. Ponzinibbio (28-4-0) has the edge here as Neal (13-4-0) has looked like a shot fighter since his life-threatening illness two years ago.
SBR’s pick — Ponzinibbio (1.87). He also had to overcome a critical illness but seems to be back on track with a win against Miguel Baeza. Bet on him to edge Neal here or pass.
Bantamweight: Kai Kara-France (2.55) vs Cody Garbrandt (1.56)
At this point, it’s time to accept that MMA has passed by Cody Garbrandt (12-4-0). The former bantamweight champ has not evolved since he entered the UFC and is slowly getting exposed with every fight. Even against a smaller fighter in Kai Kara-France (22-9-1), it’s time to keep fading him.
SBR’s pick — Kara-France (2.55). Getting plus-money to go against Garbrandt is a gift. Kara-France is also a high-level striker who has won 10 of his 22 victories via KO. Garbrandt could use his wrestling to win, but he’ll likely want to “stand and bang” and will lose.
Parlay: Poirier (1.59), Nunes (1.33), and Kara-France (2.55) at 5.40
