Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) enthusiast viewership has exploded across North America with the industry pioneer function as UFC: Ultimate Fighting Championship. With the phenomenal growth of MMA, we have also seen a rise in gambling options on MMA since Sportsbooks attempt to satisfy the gambling demand by the general public. Why bet your buddy at even odds on a lopsided fight when you get true odds at a Sportsbook and great payouts by betting on the underdog.
The Way to Bet on MMA?
Most online Sportsbooks will post lines on MMA beneath their Sportsbook product class. You’d then look to get MMA lines. Many books who post lines on the UFC will also carry lines on other important MMA organizations like Affliction, Fantasy, WEC, EliteXC or any particular MMA PPV events. Provided that there is a demand the major online Sportsbooks will place betting lines.
A MMA line (called a gambling line) is posted as a Moneyline odds in American Odds. A Moneyline bet means that you are picking who’ll win the fight. The payout odds will be exhibited in American Odds. The major online Sportsbooks will provide you a decision to display chances in American, European or Fractional.
As an Example, UFC Ultimate Fight Night 14 Line displayed in American Odds:
Anderson Silva -500
James Irvin + 350
The gambling line shows that Anderson Silva is a heavy favorite to overcome James Irvin. You may have to wager $500 to win $100 on Anderson Silva because he’s the heavy favorite. If you like the underdog, bet $100 on James Irvin also it would pay out $350. The betting odds are a payout percentage and also you don’t need to wager $100. Your wager will payout according to the payout ratio.
In MMA anything can happen. It only takes a single punch. That is why it is so exciting to wager on MMA. The underdog always has a puncher’s chance. There have been some great underdog payouts and upsets in MMA. Gabriel Gonzaga Vs. Mirko Cro Cop – who can forget that high kick to the head. Matt’The Terror’ Serra Vs George’Rush’ St. Pierre Part 1 – Superman punch and one the biggest upsets ever in MMA. Quinton Rampage Jackson Vs Forrest Griffin – The UFC reality star turns champ in a grind out choice. The best thing about the MMA is the fights are fairer and translucent than boxing because many of the battles are stopped by knockout or submission. You are able to observe the action right in front of you. The most exciting thing is having activity (i.e. a bet) on all of the fighters on the televised card and screaming your head off at the bar with your friends or on a PPV in your big screen.
