If you have a strong knowledge of MMA, you can place a bet on a fight and make a profit. Sportsbooks do not know as much about mixed martial arts as they do about American football, but you can make a profit by betting on undercard fighters. You can bet on the straight up winner, over/under rounds, and fighter/round finish. But there are other betting markets that you should look into, too.
Prop bets on MMA fights are available from online sports betting sites. These bets are individual wagers on certain aspects of a fight. The oddsmakers can either feel positively or negatively about them. Prop bets should be placed only if you know more about the fighters’ records. If you’re betting on a fighter with a losing streak, make sure you do your homework. The odds may be a little out of line, but they can make you a lot of money if you place your bets accordingly.
There are a couple of different types of parlays, which combine several different bet types in a single wager. Parlays combine multiple fighters and fights and are usually based on the combined MMA odds. If one fighter loses, the entire bet is lost. A fight ending bet, on the other hand, is based on a decision or stoppage of the fight. The odds are also combined to determine the cashout.
Some sportsbooks also offer a three-way line on fight odds that include a draw match. Though this doesn’t happen frequently, it is worth betting on a draw because of the larger payout than the odds of a win. Parlays are one of the easiest forms of MMA betting, and are available on most online sportsbooks. If you’re an experienced sports betting veteran, it is always a good idea to stick to simple betting rules when choosing a MMA fight.
Another popular MMA betting market is Over/Under rounds. You can bet on the number of rounds in an MMA fight and place your bet on the winner of the fight. The fight must last at least two rounds. Other popular markets include method of victory and fight duration. You can combine these markets with one another if you’re willing to risk a higher wager. The odds are often pretty stable in these markets. However, it’s important to keep in mind the risks associated with each type of wager.
In the UFC, an over/under bet is one of the most popular types of MMA betting. In this type of bet, you’re trying to predict how long the fight will last. The odds are often given as over 2.5 rounds, but you can also bet under 2.5 rounds if you think the fight will end before the halfway point of the third round. If the fight lasts over 2.5 rounds, you’ve got a good chance of winning.
