Betting on MMA

Written by


When it comes to betting on MMA, there is more to the sport than simply picking winners. Understanding the types of MMA bets, as well as the factors that influence them, can help you make better decisions and boost your bankroll. Money line bets are the most straightforward MMA wagers. They involve placing a bet on which fighter you think will win, and each fighter is assigned odds that determine your potential payout. Prop bets are a bit more nuanced and involve betting on specific outcomes within a fight, such as the method of victory (submission, knockout, or decision) and which round the fight will end in.

MMA is a fast-paced sport, and the odds on any given bout can change quickly. That’s why MMA bettors should always pay close attention to the live odds and matchup probabilities available at their sportsbook or through their betting app. This information will give them a leg up on the competition and allow them to take advantage of opportunities as they arise.

One of the most important things to remember when betting on MMA is that no fighter is ever truly safe. Even the most dominant stars, like Conor McGregor, can be caught off guard in a fight and dropped by someone with a different style or fighting approach. This is why you need to thoroughly study fighters and their records before betting on them, as well as pay attention to their training camps and injury reports.

In addition to traditional moneyline bets, MMA fans can also place over/under bets on the number of rounds in a fight. These bets allow you to wager on whether the fight will last more or less than a specified number of rounds, and offer higher payouts than betting on the winner of a fight. Some MMA sportsbooks also offer a DRAW option for over/under bets, which can provide an excellent payout if your pick is correct.

Another way to increase your MMA betting edge is to research fighters’ styles and recent performances. In particular, look at how each fighter handles different styles of opponent. For example, a striker will have a much harder time dealing with a grappler. It’s also helpful to watch a fighter’s past fights and see how their style played out in those matches.

If you want to bet on more than one outcome of a fight, you can also make parlay bets. These bets combine multiple individual bets for a larger payout, but all of your selections must win to win the parlay. Adding a bet on the exact round a fight will end in to a parlay increases your potential payout, but you must be very accurate in order to make this type of bet. MMA parlays can be found on the Scorestrip at the top of the Dimers website, in the MMA section of the Bet Hub and on the MMA Live page on our sportsbook apps. All bets on a fight in progress are time sensitive, so you must be quick to place your bets to maximize your chances of winning.
