If you enjoy betting on boxing, MMA, and other combat sports, then you have probably made some money from parlay betting. A parlay is a bet that consists of several picks – usually one winner and the loser of another fight – and the more selections you have in a parlay, the more profits you can make. However, the more fights you choose, the less likely you’ll win, and correct predictions for five or more fights are almost impossible to make. Only experienced punters should use parlay betting.
Grouped round betting
While betting on the winner of a fight in the grouping round is the most popular type of MMA bet, you can also place bets on a particular round. For example, if a fight is ten rounds long, you can bet that it will end within the first round. If it is less than ten rounds, you can bet on the round to last two or three minutes.
Money line bets
In MMA betting, money line bets are an option for fans who want to bet on the favorite. The reason behind this is simple: a favorite has a higher probability of winning than a underdog. The money line represents this in a variety of ways, including straight-up bets on the underdog and favorite, and parlay bets on underdogs. The payout amounts for money line bets depend on which side of the bet was chosen.
Method of victory bets
Betting on the outcome of the fight can be very profitable in MMA. The method of victory bet is a way to bet on the outcome of a particular fight. While this type of bet is less specific than the outright winner bet, the returns are generally higher. The vig attached to these props reflects the implied probability of each finish. For example, a bet on a knockout finish would not pay out as much as a bet on a decision or submission finish. Alternatively, a bet on the method of victory would pay out more when the winner is determined by judges, as the odds for a certain finish could be skewed towards one fighter or the other.
You can bet on MMMA futures by placing a bet on a specific event or win total. For example, if you bet $100 on the Braves to win the World Series, you would receive a $100 payout. You can also place a bet on a UFC futures fight, which will likely feature two teams. In addition, you can place a bet on a particular UFC fight to win more than 6.5 games.
Getting hyped on a fighter
There are some things to consider when betting on a fighter, especially if you’re new to the sport. While it is easy to get hyped up about a fighter, it is important to consider their history and their ability to win off the mat. In addition to their recent fight record, you also want to consider the overall condition of a fighter. For instance, a fighter who misses weight could be exhausted from trying to make it. Alternatively, a fighter who has heart problems isn’t necessarily the best bet.
