Bellator 273 Parlay Picks
I know it’s cliché and I know it’s sort of a degenerate move but I like the dogs on the prelims of Bellator 273. By that, I mean the underdogs because one is a staple in the promotion who always brings it in Saad Awad, the other a former champion in Darrion Caldwell, and last but not least Ben Parrish AKA “Big Tuna” who has been picking up steam with Bellator since he got his first-round KO at Bellator 266. Let me explain why I like these underdogs.
All odds come from Draftkings. Sign up for Draftkings with my referral link and we both get a free bet of up to $100 dollars.
Saad Awad 24-13 (1) +180
Awad got himself back in the win column when he got a first round TKO over Nate Andrews at Bellator 259. 11 of his 24 wins come by way of knock out/technical knock out, so that’s what I’m expecting against his opponent, Chris Gonzalez who is 6-1. His last string of losses were against the likes of former champions and top ranked opponents including a short notice bout against Paul Daley, so the losses were not due to anything negative on Awad’s part. He’s also moved and changed training camps and the last win seems to show signs of fresh air in the Bellator vet’s lungs, so I see a win here.
Ben Parrish (5-1) +145
🐟 "If they kick you while you're down, break their legs." -

Big Tuna looks to silence the doubters once more THIS Saturday when he faces @SullyTroy100 to kick off the #Bellator273 @MonsterEnergy Prelims LIVE on the Official #Bellator YouTube channel.
Parrish only has one loss and that was due to injury. His opponent, Sullivan Cauley is 2-0 so there is an experience advantage for Parrish and with most of his wins coming by way of submission and the last one, the most popular one being a knock out, I would not be surprised if Parrish surprises fans here. This fight opens up the card so if you play this parlay and he wins it’ll be some nice momentum for Bellator 273.
Darrion Caldwell (14-5) +105
Caldwell is the former bantamweight champion and while he is riding a two-fight losing streak, something tells me his placement on the card and not being ranked is likely motivating him to break that streak. The last two losses were against some tough competition too in Leandro Higo and A.J. McKee so they’re understandable. His opponent, Enrique Barzola is experienced but Caldwell’s faced higher caliber competition and I think it will show in this match up.

Well, those are my picks. Play them at your own risk but know that if they don’t work out, I too will be feeling your pain.
Good luck!
