The increasingly popular sport of mixed martial arts is a great option for enthusiastic sports bettors. It’s dynamic and easy to understand, plus usually the offered odds are fantastic – why wouldn’t be intrigued by that. Now we will look at the so-called upper scale of MMA betting – the types of wagers that require a little more thought than just deciding on who will win.

Round Betting
If you are interested in this type, then you’ll have to speculate in which round the match will end. You may develop a spreadsheet on different fighters’ performance and stats, so that you are prepared to bet and rely on logic, or just hope for the best and place your stake with the help of your 6th sense. It doesn’t really matter – whatever works for you is good enough. Just make sure your decision isn’t too far off from reality.

There are a few different round bets available to you. The first one asks for choosing only the last round of the match. If you go for the second one, you’ll have to pick the final round plus the winner. The third one comes to picking the round in which the fight will end, the winner, and the method of victory.

Betting on Method of Victory
This type of wager requires of you to determine how the match will end, not when, not who’ll win, but simply how. An MMA fight can be ended with a submission, knockout or a judge’s decision. There’s no beating about the bush here – this one’s tricky. If you’ve made a spreadsheet you can always use it. However, you may be tempted by the odds that knockouts offer. If two major names are fighting – sure, go for it, but otherwise don’t be too brave to put your money on that. Remember – it’s better to win less, than lose. If two middle-range contenders are fighting, betting on a judge’s decision may make you more money. Our overall advice on this one is to go for live betting, so you can react when the time is right.
