If you’re looking for tips on how to Bet on UFC Fight Night Odds, look no further than the following guide.
Betting on the UFC is a great place for beginners because the menu of odds isn’t as vast as other sports available at BetUS Sportsbook. While big title fights can expand the menu, most UFC fights offer odds that fall into three categories; odds to win, total number of rounds, and method of victory.
The odds to win are the easiest to understand and wager on. Simply pick who wins the bout. You have only two choices and one outcome. Somebody has to win, and your task is correctly predicting which fighter comes out on top.
Because MMA fights can end in a heartbeat, underdogs are very valuable when making UFC predictions. It’s much harder for a massive underdog in an NBA or NFL game to hold on for a win over four quarters. In the UFC, all it takes is a rogue punch to win a bout. There are dozens of examples of underdogs of +500 or lower outright upsetting their opponents.
Round totals are another popular UFC Fight Night betting option. Some fights are three rounds, others five, but the idea of betting the total remains the same. Predict whether the bout will go Over or Under the total set by the bookmakers.
You can make predictions for the total based on the fighters involved and their specific fighting styles.
For example, the Under would be a smart bet if a fight features two brawlers who tend to swing for the fences and fizzle out early. Conversely, technical fighters who prefer to wrestle than throw hands tend to go the distance when fighting against similar opponents.
A fighter’s style has a lot to do with betting on the method of victory prop. The choices are commonly won by KO/TKO/DQ, submission, or decision.
Some fighters prefer to wrap opponents up and submit them for wins. Meanwhile, others have zero submission wins and only win via TKO or decision.
If you take the time to research a fighter’s tendencies, you can make winning predictions on the outcome of most fights.
This is just the tip of the iceberg regarding statistics and research. There are many other factors to consider, such as time between fights, injuries during training, and how many knockouts a fighter has suffered.
Long layoffs can lead to ring rust, lower body injuries can slow formerly quick fighters, and getting knocked out too often can lead to a whole host of issues.
