Bellator Odds & Lines

Overview

Bellator MMA is a U.S.-based mixed-martial arts promotion that broke ground in Santa Monica, California, in 2008. The company launched as a direct competitor to the UFC. Paramount Global launched the Promotion and remains the second-largest combat sports platform in the world behind the UFC.

Bellator takes its name from the Latin word for “warrior,” bellātor.

The first Bellator fight card was held in 2009, and since then, the company has hosted more than 290 combat events worldwide. Each one of those events had Bellator odds for fans of wagering on MMA.

Bellator’s PPV events are mostly numbered, but the promotion has featured several “special events.”

The most recent example was Bellator MMA vs. Rizin FF, a co–promotion with the Rizin Fighting Federation. Matches were contested under Rizin’s ruleset. If they do another event like this, Bellator bettors should know that all five main card bouts went to a three-round decision. Three rounds aren’t long enough to adjust to new fighters and rules.

Bellator 300 is in September and will likely feature a must-watch fight card and a perfect opportunity for betting returns. Bellator is a great sport to take advantage of BetUS’ bonus welcome offers for new members.

Earn a 125% sign-up bonus up to $2,500 and a first deposit promotion that offers you $450 of bets if you make an initial deposit of $200. Both provide new users and Bellator bettors, some extra scratch to work with.

We have a few quick tips if you want to break into Bellator betting.

The first is to take time before the event to pick the fights you want to wager on. Having a plan is essential and saves a lot of time than if you choose to go in blind. This is the case for almost every sport offered at BetUS Sportsbook, but it’s a step that many bettors still overlook.

Don’t take shortcuts or rely on the research of others. It’s your money on the line, so be willing to work to make the most of it.

The first MMA-specific tip is to start with wagering on the undercard fights. This strategy will only work with some events, but there is a lot of money to be made on the undercard most nights. The reason is that the betting market and bookmakers pay less attention to these fights. The lack of eyes will allow you to find better and more frequent edges to exploit.

When you have the Bellator fight card up, you can start to handicap each fighter individually. An excellent place to start is to try and find fights featuring a skilled grappler against a fighter with poor ground skills. Look how often the grappler wins fights via submission and how often the brawler gets wrapped up and taps out. If these stats align, betting on the grappler to win via submission is easy to make. The odds will probably be profitable due to the wager technically being a prop bet.

HOW TO BET ON BELLATOR ODDS & LINES

Bellator betting is easy because there are fewer outcomes to bet on than in other sports. Events in the NFL or MLB can often have an overwhelming number of odds available. Bealltor odds are a bit more straightforward.

The primary events you will be wagering on are the outright winner, the total number of rounds, and the method of victory. Each bet has a strategy attached, but the steps to victory are similar.

The most important thing to know is that all three options above require research on the stats and Bellator odds before placing a bet.

If you are looking to wager on the method of victory, for example, go back and look at the entire fight history of the combatants. Suppose Fighter A is a grappler with a good record but zero knockouts. You can assume that the fight will end in a submission or decision if Fighter A wins. In this hypothetical bout, assume Fighter B has a history of getting submitted by quality wrestlers. He’s a brawler who gets exposed when the fight hits the mat.

In the above fight, all signs point to a win by Fighter A via submission. The Bellator odds for predicting the exact method of victory are usually profitable and something to watch.

Another recommendation when betting on Bellator, or any MMA event, is to look long and hard at the underdogs. Combat sports like MMA are different from most other events because the fight can end anytime. Boxing is like this, but knockouts are harder to come by with gloves on.

Because MMA fights can end in a heartbeat, underdogs fare well in the betting market compared to other sports. One lucky punch by even the longest dark horse can end the night of the most decorated champion. While that may sound like hyperbole, scrubs beat champs more often than you’d think in MMA.

These underdog wins are hard to predict but possible. The Ronda Rousey vs. Holly Holm fight is an excellent example of this. Rousey was the queen of MMA then, and nobody could even give her a good fight, let alone challenge for the strap. Holm was relatively unknown outside of devoted fans, yet she stepped up and beat Rousey in a flash.

Trust us, these outcomes happen more often than you realize, making MMA one of the most accessible sports to cash underdog bets.
