MMA Betting

MMA betting involves placing bets on the winner of a fight. This is a very competitive sport, so it is best to be selective and focus on the odds of a fighter’s victory. There are many factors that influence a fighter’s odds, such as recent performances, divisional rankings, and physical attributes.

Another popular type of MMA betting involves placing bets on how many rounds a fight will last. This is done by setting an Over/Under line that determines whether or not the fight will go over or under a certain number of rounds. For instance, a line of 3.5 suggests that the fight will last four rounds, while a line of 2.5 means that it will last three rounds.

Another important factor in MMA betting is the style and stance of the fighters. A fighter may be left-handed or right-handed, but a southpaw may have an advantage over an orthodox fighter. While it is a good idea to know the styles of fighters and their stances, the odds of them winning will still depend on the style of each fighter.

The oddsmakers also set Over/Under totals on fights. These totals are often accompanied by a price that represents the implied probability that the fight will go over the set number of rounds. For instance, a championship match between FIGHTER A and FIGHTER B is scheduled for five rounds. In that case, the Over/Under total is set at the 2:30 mark of Round 3.

Most decent MMA sportsbooks support credit and debit cards. They also accept popular e-wallet services like PayPal and Neteller. Other options include Zimpler, Boku, and ecoPayz. For mobile users, a handy app called Boku allows top-ups on their mobile phone. Moreover, there are services like Trustly that operate as intermediaries between the user and his or her bank.

The best MMA betting sites will have a comprehensive list of upcoming bouts. They also provide statistics about the fighters. They also offer in-depth previews for UFC title bouts and flagship events. As an added bonus, some of these sites allow you to place bets on undercards and smaller MMA events.

MMA betting odds are usually calculated by the “Three-Way Money Line” method, with odds published for three possible outcomes. Unlike traditional sports betting, however, a draw is rare in MMA, so some sportsbooks do not offer this option. Others may offer a “push” option and refund bets in this case.

Besides odds, you can also place bets on method of victory, which allows you to place a wager on the specific method of victory of a fighter. Some examples of methods of victory include inside the distance (ITD), submission, and knockout. MMA betting odds can be found on many sites, including Scores and Odds, and many more.

MMA betting sites also support a group bet option. This allows you to invite other fans to join your group. You can specify how many selections each member can place. This feature makes it easier to make a group bet on the outcome of a fight.
