MMA betting is a great way to expand your knowledge of the sport. There are different types of bets you can make, including win by knockout, number of rounds, and method of victory. You can also bet on a specific event within a fight, such as the number of punches thrown or the color of the fighter’s shirt when they enter the ring.
One of the most popular types of MMA betting is Over/Under for round totals. The line is set by the oddsmaker and the amount of money you can win on an Over/Under bet is based on the implied probability that the fight will reach a certain number of rounds. You can bet on whether the fight will end in a knockout or a submission. You can also bet on the method of victory, such as a submission in the second round.
If you are new to MMA betting, it can be difficult to figure out the odds for the fight. You can use a table that shows the win percentages of fighters in their respective age groups. This is helpful when fighters of similar age groups face each other. You can also research the fighter’s match history to learn how their career has gone. If you are able to do this, you will have an advantage when making a combat prediction.
Another popular type of MMA betting is match betting. This type of bet is when you bet on two fighters. For example, you might bet on Kamaru Usman to win by submission in the second round, and you will win $200 if he does. If you bet on Dillashaw to win by submission in the first round, you will win $300.
Another popular type of MMA betting has to do with how long the fight lasts. The most common MMA fights last for a maximum of three rounds. A championship bout can last for five rounds. However, fights that last less than three rounds aren’t uncommon in MMA. Usually the fight ends by a knockout or submission. If the fight goes to a distance, the fight ends by a points system. This is called a handicap bet.
If you are looking for a different type of MMA betting, there are also prop bets you can bet on. These bets are typically longer odds and offer good value. Prop bets can include the number of rounds a fight will last, the number of punches a fighter will throw, and the method of victory.
Another type of MMA betting is parlay betting. A parlay bet is when you place a wager on several different fight outcomes. You are required to pick the winners of two fights, and you must get them all right to win. If you don’t get all the parts of the bet right, you lose money. For example, if you place a parlay bet on Dillashaw and Tate, you are required to select the winners of both fights.
