There are several options for MMA betting. One popular option is the Over/Under totals. The Over/Under is similar to how a bet on the round totals is done in baseball, basketball, or football. The odds on a total are based on how many rounds the fight will go. The odds increase if the fight goes over the required number of rounds. For example, if a championship bout is scheduled for five rounds, the Over/Under is plus odds.
You can also use props in MMA betting, including the winner, the total number of rounds, and the fight going to the distance. These props have plus odds, but you should be careful because the oddsmakers may feel negatively about them. Before betting on an MMA fight, be sure to learn about the fighter’s record. A southpaw can be better than an orthodox fighter. This way, you can maximize your value.
Another option for MMA betting is to study fighters’ records and compare them to other fighters. If one fighter is aggressive, then he will most likely win. Conversely, a passive fighter may be better suited to fend off an opponent’s early attacks and prime themselves for a successful fight in the later rounds. Physical comparisons can also inform other betting options. MMA betting requires careful analysis of the fight film.
Another option is to place a bet on the undercard fighters. Oftentimes, they will end up advancing to the next round in the fight. If you do this, you will be more likely to be profitable in the long run. Moreover, MMA betting sites offer live streaming. Besides these, there are also betting sites online like Fanduel and DraftKings. While moneyline bets are the easiest to place, they pay less richly than other betting options. However, underdogs can win a significant amount of money with moneyline bets.
When betting on MMA matches, there are a few things to consider. You can also make a wager on the way in which the fight will end. For instance, you can wager on whether the fighter will win by knockout, submission, or a judge’s decision. Alternatively, you can also bet on how many rounds the fight will last. The odds will depend on a number of factors including the fighter’s record and the news about him.
Parlays are another popular MMA betting option. Parlays combine several different types of bets and pay out a larger amount than if you just placed a bet on a single fighter. A $100 parlay would win $120 if Demetrious Johnson knocked out Tyron Woodley in the final round. Another popular MMA betting option is the Over/Under round totals. A bet on the round totals will be worth a little more money if the fighters are known for strong strikes or a long history.
Proper bets can be profitable. A typical example of a prop bet is a fighter’s weight or the number of punches thrown. A prop bet can also be as simple as the color of the fighter’s shirt as they walk into the ring. In some cases, these bets are particularly good value. For example, a $100 stake on Kamaru Usman to win by submission in the second round would bring in $400 or $300 if he wins the match.
