Mma betting is a rapidly growing segment of the sports gambling market. This is largely due to the rising popularity of UFC, but also because it can be a less expensive form of sports wagering. In addition to the traditional moneyline and over/under bets, MMA betting offers a variety of other prop bets. These bets can be more precise than moneyline and over/under bets and often pay out larger amounts. In general, betting on MMA fights is legal in most states and countries where sports betting is not banned.
MMA betting odds are different from other sports betting lines in that the oddsmakers set them based on the expected outcome of a particular fight, rather than a specific fighter or team. This makes MMA betting a great option for bettors who are familiar with sports betting and can understand the odds that the sportsbooks set. Nevertheless, this does not mean that the oddsmakers aren’t influenced by public perception. There are a few ways that bettors can capitalize on this in order to make more profitable bets.
One popular type of MMA wager is the round bet, which allows bettors to place wagers on when a certain round in a fight will end by either a KO/TKO, submission, or judge decision. This type of MMA betting is very similar to the round betting that takes place in other sports, including football and basketball. However, the MMA round betting odds will update as the fight progresses and are based on the real-time action occurring.
Other MMA bets include the method-of-victory wager, which allows bettors to pick how a particular fighter will win a fight. This type of MMA betting is very entertaining and can be made on a variety of methods, such as inside the distance (ITD), submission, knockout (KO), or decision. This is a fun type of MMA betting that can be extremely lucrative for those who do their research and are familiar with the fighting styles of the fighters they are backing.
Another MMA betting wager is the round and method bet, which is more precise than the over/under and moneyline bets. This MMA betting wager requires bettors to choose which round in the fight the stoppage will occur, and what type of stoppage it will be. This is a more accurate bet than the other two, and can pay out larger amounts for bettors who correctly predict the exact round and method. This is a good bet to place if you know that a fighter has a history of winning a fight by a specific method, such as ITD or submission.
