There are many ways to bet on an MMA fight. You can place a wager on the way the fight will end, such as by knockout, submission, decision, or disqualification. In addition to betting on the winner, you can place bets on how many rounds will be fought and whether the fight will be stopped in a draw. However, it is essential to know which types of outcomes are most likely to happen in order to place a profitable wager.
While MMA betting is more complicated than sports betting, you can still make money by following some simple rules. The first rule of MMA betting is to know the odds of the fight. There are different types of MMA matches, and betting on the winner of each is simple. The odds are listed in a moneyline format, which will feature a favorite with negative odds, as well as an underdog with plus odds. You then place a bet on the winner of each match based on the moneyline odds.
The other type of MMA betting is called a prop bet. In these situations, bookies will provide odds for the number of rounds fought in a match. An ‘Over’ bet, for example, will win by +130 for every 100 dollars you bet. An ‘Under’ bet, on the other hand, will win by a decision or submission. MMA betting odds are also available on the Method of Victory props. These props predict how the fight will end based on the methods used to win the fight, such as KO/TKO, submission, or decision.
If you are betting on MMA fights, be sure to study the fighters’ records. There are certain trends that you should look for. For instance, an aggressive fighter will be more likely to win over a passive fighter. Therefore, if a fighter has a history of losing to the same opponent, it is likely that he will lose to them. This is also true of other fight markets, such as a heavyweight bout.
You should also consider stance and styles when evaluating the MMA betting odds. A southpaw fighter will usually have an advantage over a right-handed one, and vice versa. Additionally, you should study the opponent’s history, stance, and form to determine which one is likely to win. It is also important to consider the fighter’s divisional ranking and fighting style. This information will help you make an informed bet and maximize the value of your money.
Depending on the sport that you choose, MMA betting has several different betting markets. The most common types of bets include moneyline, Over/Under, and Parlay bets. Moneyline bets are the easiest for beginners, as they are simply based on which fighter will win. If the fight goes over the Over/Under number, the Over bet will pay out. Similarly, if the fight ends before the Over/Under line, the Under bet will pay out.
