When MMA betting, you need to predict the styles and tactics of both fighters. For example, an aggressive fighter will probably win over a more passive fighter. You also need to look at the fighters’ records. While these statistics are often accurate, they can also distract you from studying the fight film. The following tips will help you place a wager on a fighter. Then, you can take advantage of the betting markets based on these statistics.
Total Rounds – Like NFL, NBA, or MLB, you can bet on how many rounds a fight will last. Total rounds odds are based on the implied probability that the fight will go over the stated number of rounds. The over/under odds are more favorable for fights that are expected to last more rounds than others. Fights that last longer can result in higher Total Rounds odds, so it’s important to understand the odds and make your own decisions before placing your wager.
Types of betting – MMA betting allows you to place wagers on a variety of different types of outcomes. Moneyline bets, for example, are the easiest bets to place. You just need to pick the winner and collect your payout based on the odds. Over/Under bets are another popular option. You can wager on whether the fight will last more or fewer rounds and win. A KO bet will pay out if the winner wins by knockout.
In-Play MMA betting is also a viable option for you. MMA betting odds can be very volatile. Because a fight can last for only a few seconds, knowing when to place your bets is extremely important. The most lucrative time to place a bet is between rounds, as this gives you the opportunity to capitalize on volatility and catch real value. A bet placed in the middle of the round will likely be the winner.
You can also place a wager on how the fight will end. You can choose whether you want to bet on a fight to end by knockout, by submission, or by a decision. Some sportsbooks also let you choose the number of rounds. This way, you can bet on the outcome of a match without worrying about whether you will be able to make your money. Once you’ve placed a bet, you can now enjoy the excitement and thrill of MMA betting.
Another type of bet is the parlay, which combines several types of bets. A parlay is a complex bet that involves betting on the outcome of multiple fights. This is the riskiest type of MMA betting, but it offers the best potential rewards. If you choose to place a parlay bet, it’s important to research each fighter’s record. You should also take into consideration the fighter’s style and divisional ranking. In addition to these factors, you should consider a fighter’s recent performance in other MMA competitions.
Another popular MMA betting market is the round over/under bet. In this market, you bet on how many rounds a fight will last. A three-round bout typically has a line of one half or two half rounds, and you can decide whether you want to bet on the fight lasting less than the specified number of rounds. An under bet means that the fight ends before the halfway point of the third round. An over bet means that the fight will go to at least two minutes and thirty seconds and go to a decision.
