MMA betting involves placing wagers on a mixed martial arts fighter’s performance. There are many different factors that determine a fighter’s odds, including their form, physical attributes, and recent performances. Although it may be difficult to get all of the details right, it is possible to make some money from this type of gambling. If you want to try out MMA betting, there are several different ways to get started. The first step is to familiarize yourself with the various types of wagers available.
The most common type of MMA betting is the moneyline bet. These are also called match bets. You can choose to bet on which fighter wins a match or on whether the match will end by a knockout or submission. When betting on the fight, be sure to consider the number of rounds, the weight of the opponent, and the fighting styles of the two sides.
A method of victory bet is another popular type of MMA betting. It allows you to bet on a specific fighter’s winning strategy. This can range from a submission to an inside the distance (ITD) finish. Be sure to check with your bookie if this option is offered.
In a parlay, you will combine multiple individual bets into one wager. This is a riskier bet than just betting on one person. However, it can lead to huge cash wins.
Another popular type of MMA bet is the over/under bet. An over bet is a wager that the total rounds of the fight will be higher than the under bet. For example, if the total rounds of the fight are four and a half and the under is five, you can bet $100 on the under and win $250.
Prop bets are also an attractive form of MMA betting. Many of these are not too complicated to understand. Some sportsbooks offer prop bets on the color of a fighter’s shirt when they enter the ring. Others include a number of punches thrown or a specific event within the fight.
The MMA betting market has continued to grow as it has become more regulated. As a result, more bookmakers are offering a variety of proposition bets. All online sportsbooks offer moneyline odds for MMA. They also use elite oddsmakers to help pick out the winners.
The total rounds bet is another similar to the moneyline bet. The ‘total rounds’ of a fight is based on the number of points that are scored in each round of the fight. Each round is ranked as a round and the higher the number of points, the higher the odds.
One of the most popular bets of all is the ‘Over’ and ‘Under’ bet. A bet on the ‘Over’ is a great way to make money on an MMA fighter who may not be as aggressive as others. Similarly, a bet on the ‘Under’ is a good bet if the fighter tends to defeat their opponents early.
