MMA Betting Information
As one of the more progressive sports, MMA has and continues to embrace sports betting. Most, if not all, MMA content you come across will reference the betting odds of a given matchup. Even if you’re no more than a casual fan, you’ve probably heard the terms “underdog” and “favorite” when it comes to a fight – these are, of course, betting references.
The most common MMA bets are placed on the outcome of a match, otherwise known as the MMA moneyline or match bet. Just as in football or basketball, all you need to do to place a moneyline bet is pick one fighter to win over the other.
In MMA, Over/Under bets are based on the total rounds the fight lasts. If the Over/Under is 2.5 rounds, you’d choose a side and hope the fight lasted more (over) or less (under) than 2.5 rounds.
Other types of interesting MMA bets include round betting, and the always entertaining method-of-victory bet. With method-of-victory bets, bettors can wager on how a specific fighter will win. These methods are usually inside the distance (ITD), submission, knockout (KO) and decision.
