When betting on a UFC fight, it’s important to understand how the odds work. The odds are meant to indicate how competitive the match will be. They are partly determined by bookmakers. For example, the odds for McGregor to win the UFC 275 match against Khabib were +150. The bookies based this on Khabib’s wrestling threat and undefeated record.
Money line bets are the easiest to understand. They involve selecting the winner, but the odds are average. They can be as high as -1000, depending on the match. Over/under bets, on the other hand, are similar to money line bets, except that you bet on a specific number of rounds.
Most sports books offer betting on UFC fights, and you can even bet live. This way, you can follow the action live as the odds change. You can also bet on the in-fight result, round betting, the total number of rounds, and the fighter’s method of victory. If you’re looking to bet on UFC fights, you can find them at Bovada Sportsbook, FanDuel, and DraftKings.
Another great way to find UFC betting odds is to look at the over/under odds. Most popular sports betting odds use the under/over format, which means that the match will be either over or under the predicted score. In UFC betting, the over/under wager is similar to the over/under bet, but instead of picking the winner, it predicts whether fighters will survive the full number of rounds.
You can also bet on the knockout or a fight ending in a draw. Choosing a fight prop depends on the circumstances and the momentum of the fighters. If the fight is decided by a knockout, your bet will win. Otherwise, if the fight is drawn, you’ll be able to place a bet on a knockout or on the fighters’ momentum.
While UFC betting odds tend to be based on a fighter’s fight record, the line can be misleading and sometimes an underdog is a worthy bet. This is because sports books must determine a price for each fighter according to their professional record, past fights, and current form. It’s not always wise to back an underdog because the betting public will favor the favorite.
It’s important to remember that UFC betting odds are determined by odds makers, so comparing multiple sports books are the best way to find the best odds. Some bookmakers post odds for each method of victory, while others only post odds for the winner. In any case, it’s important to shop around because UFC betting odds are constantly changing.
The Future Champion bet, which is particularly risky, involves betting on the future champion of the season. This bet involves significant risk, so it is best to know the UFC picks and players well and use this knowledge to make informed guesses.
