Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fan viewership has exploded across North America with the industry leader 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 try to satisfy the gambling demand by the general public. Why wager your buddy at odds on a lopsided struggle when you get true chances at a Sportsbook and great payouts by betting on the underdog.
How to Bet on MMA?
Most online Sportsbooks will post lines on MMA beneath their Sportsbook merchandise category. 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, Dream, WEC, EliteXC or any special MMA PPV occasions. Provided that there is a demand the major online Sportsbooks will post gambling lines.
A MMA line (known as a betting line) is posted as a Moneyline odds in American Odds. A Moneyline bet means that you are choosing who’ll win the battle. The payout odds will be displayed in American Odds. The major online Sportsbooks will provide you a choice to display chances in American, European or Fractional.
For example, UFC Ultimate Fight Night 14 Line exhibited 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 would need to bet $500 to win $100 on Anderson Silva because he is the heavy favorite. If you love the underdog, wager $100 on James Irvin also it would pay out $350. The betting odds are a payout percentage and you don’t need to bet $100. Your wager will payout according to the payout ratio.
In MMA anything can happen. It only takes a single punch. That’s why it’s so exciting to bet 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 will forget that high kick to the head. Matt’The Terror’ Serra Vs George’Hurry’ St. Pierre Part 1 – Superman punch and one of the greatest upsets in MMA. Quinton Rampage Jackson Vs Forrest Griffin – The UFC reality star turns champ at a grind out choice. The very best thing about the MMA is the conflicts are fairer and transparent than boxing because lots of the battles are stopped by knockout or submission. You can see the action right in front of you. The most fascinating thing is having action (i.e. a bet) on all of the fighters around the televised card and screaming your head off in the bar with your friends or on a PPV in your large screen.
