MMA Betting

In the ring, you can wager on several different things. You can place a wager on a fight’s way of victory, submission, disqualification, judge’s decision, stoppage, or even how many rounds will be fought. If you’re a sports bettor, you can even place a bet on the fight to last more than a certain number of rounds. However, MMA betting is more complicated than that.


Betting on MMMA over/under is relatively new. It has become popular in recent years. Although the sport is still relatively new, the gambling industry has lagged behind until recently. Bettors had to wait until the mid-2000s to see betting lines for major fights. Now, however, MMA betting has become popular, and it is a great way to get a slice of the action without having to go through all of the hype.

If you’re new to betting on MMA fights, you’ll want to make sure you do your research and understand the fights’ chances of ending in a draw. Most successful bettors study their fights before they bet and end up winning consistently. To do this, simply look up the odds for the match you’re most interested in and then enter the amount you’re willing to risk. You’ll want to pay attention to whether a fighter is known for finishing their opponents early or going the distance.


In MMA betting, the moneyline is the line that combines the odds on the winner and the underdog. This line allows you to bet on the underdog, the favorite, or on the game ending in a draw. This line is similar to the moneyline in boxing, but the payoff is higher. Decisive bets come in three types: unanimous, majority, and split. When betting on the moneyline, make sure you are aware of the risks associated with betting on a single event.

Round bets

If you enjoy betting on MMA matches, you may want to consider placing your bets on round totals. These are set by the oddsmakers, who will take a percentage of the fight’s total money based on the implied probability that the fight will last five rounds. In addition to the Round Totals, you can also place bets on how many rounds the match will go. For example, if a championship bout goes five rounds, FIGHTER A will win. If, on the other hand, FIGHTER B loses, you’ll probably want to avoid placing a bet on this particular fight.

The Over/Under is another popular bet in MMA betting. An Over/Under is a total number of rounds a fight is expected to last. Oddsmakers set these prices by using a mathematical formula that combines the estimated round length and total number of fight rounds. These odds are usually much higher than the Over/Under, but the payout odds are higher when the match finishes within the specified timeframe.

MMA futures

There are several different kinds of MMA futures betting. You can place bets on how long the fight will last, who will win by knockout, submission, or points decision. You can also place prop bets on fighters, including weight class champions. Most sportsbooks will allow you to place prop-only bets as well. This type of betting is not very popular, but you should consider it if you’re new to this type of betting.

In MMA, oddsmakers often set lines that will benefit their employers. Because these odds are often far from accurate, they are sometimes set far off. This is particularly true in online MMA betting. It’s possible to win big by betting on fighters listed as underdogs. MMA futures betting is more susceptible to these flaws than other sports. While it may be tempting to place your bets on favorites, this is a bad idea.
