Mma betting is an accessible way to enjoy MMA without being present at its events, both online and via mobile device. Simply navigate to your sportsbook’s MMA betting section, choose an event, then navigate further by selecting fighters or over/under rounds bets as desired for placing bets in your bet slip.

Once you’ve selected and entered a stake for a bet, click “Submit”. It will then appear in your bet slip where you can review or modify bets as necessary; change stake amounts if needed or simply remove altogether before hitting “Submit”. When finished making your selections click “Submit”.

At the core of betting MMA lies understanding the odds. These indicate how likely bookmakers believe a fighter is to win given past performances, injuries history and current training camps – however those betting underdogs often see greater returns by taking advantage of their higher payout percentage than betting favorites.

Over/Under Rounds betting is a popular MMA wager. This market allows bettors to predict how many rounds a match will last, similar to bets on total points scored during a basketball game. Oddmakers typically set an Over/Under based on both its scheduled number of rounds and each participant’s fighting style.

Bettors should carefully monitor each fighter’s weight class and weigh-in. It’s crucial that bettors take note of these figures because some fighters take drastic measures in order to shed pounds before an octagon fight, which may adversely affect their performance on the mat.

An additional key consideration when it comes to fighting is their stance, often divided between orthodox or southpaw. While most MMA fighters train multiple disciplines and possess well-rounded skill sets, their individual strengths and weaknesses could play directly into the hands of their opponents.

Be mindful to consider a fighter’s experience, intuition and how they perform under pressure when betting on any fight. While it can be easy to be seduced by media hype surrounding an exciting bout, bettors must remain mindful that even one lucky punch could down an experienced contender. Furthermore, studying records from fighters within each weight class and noting their results against similar fighters in those categories is also helpful in making their selection decision.
