Types of Bets on MMA Fights

MMA tournaments might not be a sport for some people, but it attracts millions of viewers each event. Fighters have been immortalized in books and movies which is why it's so exciting to watch professionals go at one another round after round. Sometimes the favorite wins and sometimes the underdog carries the belt home, but either way, it's an amazing form of entertainment.

Since the most popular sports get a huge audience, the majority of that audience likes to bet on matches and championships. Since MMA fights were so popular, it was only a matter of time before they joined the fold. Different betting sites offer different betting odds for various sports. For example, Redbet Sports betting is not only available for classic sports like football, basketball, and tennis, but for other sports like darts, ice hockey, horse racing, cycling, volleyball, and MMA, as well.

Most people like to bet on MMA fights, as well, and like their sports counterparts, there are numerous odds you can place on MMA events. Here are some of the ways you can bet on MMA fights:

Match Betting

This is the simplest bet you can place on any fight. All you need to do is pick the fight and pick the fighter that you think will win. Before placing this bet or any bet for that matter, it would be good to do some research on the fighters in the event and they've been doing so far. In this way, you'll have a better chance of determining the winner.

Betting on the Method of Victory

There are three ways an MMA fight can end: by knockout, submission, or decision. These methods can be useful if the fighters have the same fighting background as if you're betting on a match and both fighters are strikers. For example, let's say you're betting on the UFC 202 main event, Diaz vs McGregor 2. Both of them are hardcore strikers and it would be difficult to decide which one's going to win. If you bet that Connor was going to win by decision, then you've won your bet. If you had your money on Diaz, you would've lost.

Round Betting

The basic guideline for these bets is to pick out the round when you think a fight will end. Additionally, you can pick the round and the fighter that wins and the round, fighter, and the way he/she wins. For example, if you were betting on UFC 94 when GSP faced B. J. Penn, and bet your money on Penn defeating GSP by submission in the third round, you would've lost your money because GSP beat Penn with a TKO in the fourth round.

Parley and Over/Under Betting

Parlay betting is a slightly riskier way of betting because you pick the winners of a few fights and you should do this if you haven't been keeping tracks of fighters. When it comes to over/under betting, a sportsbook will give you a round total and you should guess whether a fight will last longer or shorter than that. Always do some reading on the fighters' stats before placing any type of bet since that'll increase your chance of winning.
