The UFC visits Orlando, Florida, to deliver a stacked fight night on Saturday, December 3, 2022, and we’re providing you with the most carefully selected UFC picks.
This week’s fight night card will make a rare appearance outside the Apex in Las Vegas, and a live attendance will provide fighters with extra adrenaline. The bookie is asking for a right hook with some of these disrespectful prices so join us as we formulate the parlay picks to knock ’em out.
Let’s waste no time because the fight odds are now available for us to delve into some parlay betting picks for UFC Fight Night Orlando: Thompson vs. Holland.
Francis Marshall vs. Marcelo Rojo
UFC Orlando Featherweight Bout
Saturday, December 3, 2022 – 06:00 PM EST at the Amway Center
Marshall vs. Rojo Betting Pick Analysis
Following his impressive Dana White’s Contender Series success earlier this year, Francis Marshall (6-0-0) will make his UFC debut in front of the Orlando crowd on Saturday evening.
It’s too early in Marshall’s career to predict how much potential the youngster has, but aged just 23 years old, he’s displayed some notable attributes that can take a fighter into the shark-infested top-tier rankings.
Marcelo Rojo (16-8-0) is a solid striker with power behind his punches but has unfortunately lost two consecutive bouts since joining the UFC’s featherweight division. He trains alongside James Krause, and although we haven’t been given the green light from his coach, he could be a fighter worth fading in this position.
Prediction & Odds
The most notable aspect of Marshall’s skillset that makes me believe he can have a bright future is his gas tank and wrestling offense. While he doesn’t own the best ground control, he’ll continue to chain wrestle until the cardio of his opponent can no longer keep up.
Marshall will lose this fight if he decides to stand and exchange strikes with Rojo; however, wrestling is the most favorable skill set in MMA, and when you can achieve a grappling game plan with exceptional cardio, you make a perfect betting pick, in my opinion.
The available UFC odds with Bookmakers Review have placed Marshall as a slight betting favorite at -153.
Marshall is untested against a UFC-caliber opponent, but Rojo will be the perfect introduction to the big leagues. I’m banking on the cardio and wrestling of Marshall to shut out the offense of Rojo and send us to a third straight week of winning punching parlays.

Angela Hill vs. Emily Ducote
UFC Orlando Women’s Strawweight Bout
Saturday, December 3, 2022 - 06:00 PM EST at the Amway Center
Hill vs. Ducote Betting Pick Analysis
At first glance, Emily Ducote (14-12-0) has delivered impressive results in recent years. Behind a 4-fight win streak, there’s a small hype on her overall potential, having not yet reached her prime fighting years.
Unfortunately for Angela Hill (12-6-0), she isn’t renowned for her skills or impressive fights; instead, she’s known as the fighter the judges are consistently robbing with poor decision-making. That said, her UFC resume is extensive, having fought countless top contenders, and she’ll welcome an inexperienced Ducote this weekend.
Prediction & Odds
Death, taxes, and Angela Hill bouts going the distance are certainties in life. Although the sportsbooks represent the latter with heavily juiced odds, this expected outcome can round off our parlay into plus-money offerings.
Hill doesn’t have the prettiest record, and Ducote was a proven finisher in Invicta FC; however, Hill is one of the most durable fighters in the women’s strawweight division that is light on her feet and often bounces herself out of the danger zone.
The available UFC odds with Bookmakers Review can’t offer a reasonable price on this fight going the distance. Still, nine times out of ten, Hill will bait her opponents into a point-fighting contest, and this is precisely what I expect in Orlando this Saturday.
