If you want to win at MMA betting, you have to look closely at your options. There are a lot of different types of bets to choose from, and some can be more profitable than others. You can bet on an individual fighter, a specific round, or the overall outcome of a fight. Having a good grasp of the sport can help you make a successful wager.
Moneyline bets are the most popular MMA bets. These bets require a bettor to pick which fighter will win the fight. The bettor must then choose whether the fighter will be able to finish the fight in a KO or a TKO. In addition, the bettor must know the weight of the fighter. A heavier fighter usually has more power. This means that the fighter has more chance of winning the bet. However, if the fighter is unable to finish the fight, the bet loses.
The method-of-victory bet is more complex than the moneyline bet. It allows a bettor to select which fighter will win by a specific method, such as knockout, submission, or inside the distance (ITD). For example, a bet on Michael Oleksiejczuk to win the fight against Conor McGregor would require the bettor to predict that the fight will end in a KO.
Parlay bets are another MMA betting option. They combine several bets into one and depend on all of the bets to come true. As a result, the bettor has a higher risk. But, if all of the bets are correct, the bet can be a lucrative one.
Another popular MMA bet is the Over/Under bet. Unlike a Moneyline bet, the Over/Under is based on the total rounds of the fight. Most MMA fights are three rounds. However, championship bouts can last up to five. Depending on the circumstances, the sportsbook may offer a “grouping” of rounds.
Groupings of rounds are typically listed as a 2.5-round or 5-round over/under. The oddsmaker sets a price for each over/under round, which is based on the implied probability that the fight will reach that number. Choosing which round is over and which is under can be tricky.
Fight props are also a great option for MMA bettors. Props allow a bettor to place a bet on an individual fighter, a round, or the overall outcome of the fight. While the prop bet may be more difficult to figure out, it can provide a better payout. Many fight fans use a technique called “MMA Math.” By doing this, the bettor can divert their attention from studying the fight film.
Bets on a specific round of a fight are known as round bets. Each round of a fight is usually around five minutes long. Round bets are much more accurate than a moneyline bet, because the bet is based on the actual duration of a particular round.
MMA bets can be a fun and rewarding way to enjoy the sport, but they can also be unpredictable. Make sure to research a fighter’s history before making a bet.
