While mixed martial arts isn’t as widely followed as American football, it is still profitable for the MMA bettors. Betting on a straight up winner, method of finish, and over/under rounds are all common ways to win money in mixed martial arts betting. However, if you’re unsure about which fighters to bet on, read on to learn more about betting on MMA. Below are a few tips to get you started.
When betting on MMA fights, research fighters’ history and record. You can determine which fighters are in good form and which ones are on a losing streak. You can also consider divisional rankings and the fighters’ physical attributes. You should also consider if the fight will go the distance. Moreover, you can use props to bet on whether a fighter will win or lose. In addition, you can look up the odds for MMA fights.
When placing a bet on MMA bouts, it’s important to understand the styles and tactics of each fighter. A fighter who is aggressive is likely to win over one who is passive. Likewise, a fighter with more experience in the sport will be more likely to win. If you’re not sure about what kind of fighter you’d want to bet on, you can always watch a fight on a video stream.
Once you’ve chosen the fighter you want to bet on, you can make wagers on the way they will win the fight. You can place a bet on either the fight will go the distance or end in a knockout. You can also place a bet on the total number of rounds in the fight. This way, you can be sure to win if you can bet on the outcome of the fight.
Parlays are another popular form of MMA betting. Parlays combine multiple bets in one wager. A winning ‘Over’ bet will return +130 in odds on a total of five rounds. Likewise, an ‘Under’ bet will pay out a dollar and thirty cents for a correct selection of all the fighters. Although parlays are riskier than other types of MMA betting, they can be rewarding if you pick the right fighters.
The most common types of MMA bets are Moneyline, Over/Under, and Parlay. Choosing the right type of bet depends on your experience and the sport you choose to wager on. Moneyline bets are the easiest to understand and are ideal for beginners. You can place bets on whether a fight will end in a draw, over/under, or KO. A moneyline bet pays out the odds of whichever outcome is favored.
A round over/under bet is another popular type of MMA betting. You can bet on the number of rounds a fight will last. Three round bouts typically have a line of either one and a half or two and a half rounds. By placing your bet on an under bet, you’re betting on a shorter bout than you think it will last. In case you bet on an over bet, the fight goes at least one and a half rounds to a decision.
