MMMA betting involves choosing between over and under bets. Over/under bets are based on the number of rounds a fighter is expected to fight in. For example, if a fighter is favored to win the fight by 2.5 rounds, you would place a $100 bet on the over. But over/under picks aren’t always easy because different fighters fight differently, and aggressive or defensive styles often last fewer rounds than their counterparts.
In MMA betting, parlay bets are bets that combine several types of bets into one wager. While parlays are generally more risky than single wagers, they can also lead to massive cash payouts. Parlay bets are typically composed of at least two different fights, each with different outcomes. This type of wager is popular with more experienced bettors due to its high payouts and increased odds.
When betting on mixed martial arts (MMA) fights, you have two options: to bet on the favorite or the underdog. Bookmakers set odds based on a fighter’s weight, reach, and record. The underdog typically has a lower odds than the favorite, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t profitable. Combined with other sports, MMMA handicap bets can be very profitable.
The oddsmakers determine the Over/Under totals and prices for each round of a MMA fight. These odds are often known as “vig” or “juice” and are based on the implied probability that a fight will go over the total number of rounds. For example, let’s say that a championship fight between two fighters is scheduled for five rounds. For the ‘Under’ bet, the fight must end at 2:29 in round five. If it does not, then it is a ‘push’ and the bet is returned.
Betting on MMMA in-play events can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it’s also a high-risk activity. A fight can end in a matter of seconds, so knowing when to place a bet is important. The best time to bet on a fight is in between rounds, when volatility is high and real value exists. Below are some tips for placing MMMA in-play bets.
