You fancy winning big on a parlay ticket in the MMA lines this weekend? We’ve got you covered with three of our top selections on UFC 202, including two Main Card bouts. You can choose a two-fighter or the whole three-fighter parlay, depending on how you prefer the listed online MMA odds.

Here Are the UFC 202 Top Parlay Picks

Anthony Johnson (21-5) vs. Glover Teixiera (25-4)

Johnson and Teixiera are the No. 1 and No. 2 contenders in the lightweight division and the winner of this fight will be getting a shot to go against light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier, so winning this contest will be key for both fighters. Both fighters are knockout artists with each one of them having 15 KO/TKOs victories to his name. The winner of this fight is thus likely to come via KO/TKO. The fact that Teixiera comes into this fight on a three-fight winning streak (one win more than Johnson’s two-fight streak) will be a big motivation for the Brazilian to get the victory. Even so, Johnson—who is four years younger than his counterpart—is faster and arguably stronger, and we believe that this edge will lead him to a victory in Saturday’s battle.

Pick: Johnson

Tim Means (25-7- 1, 7-4) vs. Sabah Homasi (11-5, 0-0)

Homasi is a strong and talented fighter, but he is making his UFC debut and doing so on short notice. It is therefore hard to trust him for the victory, especially against Tim Means who is an experienced fighter with 17 career knockouts to go a long with a solid 5-2 record in the UFC. More importantly, The Dirt Bird is more versatile in his style when compared to the punch- reliant Sabah. A victory should thus be due for Means in this fight, with the contest looking likely to end very early.

Pick: Means

Cody Garbrandt vs. Takeya Mizugaki

Cody Garbrandt is arguably the best undefeated prospect fighting in UFC 202, with a flawless 4-0 record in the UFC and a 9-0 career record. More than that, he is coming off his best-ever win over Thomas Almeida, a win that catapulted him up the bantamweight standings. Should he stick to his usual stuff, this undercard bout against Mizugaki should be very winnable. Yes, Mukazaki is veteran of 6-plus years in the UFC and his record of 6 wins in his last 8 fights speaks of a man who knows his way around the cage. But with his regressed aggressiveness and rather iffy defense, the fast and explosive Garbrandt should be able to smash him all over with jabs and kicks, leading to an almost certain victory for the youngster.

Pick: Garbrandt
