Martial Arts Upcoming Odds

Understanding MMA Odds

Mixed martial arts or “MMA” for short is the premier combat sport to bet on today. MMA odds are widely available from the online sportsbook and this includes the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Bellator MMA, and other MMA organizations. MMA betting lines are present all year as the sport keeps growing in popularity.

The MMA odds are present as either a negative number like -150 or a positive number like +135. This is the American odds and indicates the favorite and underdog, respectively. The negative number is how much you have to bet to win $100 ($150 with the example of -150) while the positive number is how much you win on a $100 bet ($135 with the example of +135).

Types of Martial Mixed Arts Odds

MoneyLine

The moneyline is the bread-and-butter of MMA fighting odds. This is where you bet which fighter wins the fight, as simple as that. In the rare event of a draw, the bet is a “push” - your stake is returned with no payout.

Totals

Totals or round totals are the second-most popular form of betting MMA odds. You bet whether the total number of rounds goes over or under the oddsmaker’s total.

Parlays

Sometimes moneyline odds are so juiced that betting it straight yields little profit. To increase the potential payout, you can parlay two or more bets together. This can be a combination of moneyline and totals. However, all bets in the parlay must win.

Props

Props are becoming more popular for MMA betting and come in many forms. You can bet on the method of victory (e.g. by knockout) or the round of victory (e.g. win in round 1) or a combination of the two. As MMA becomes bigger, look out for different types of props.

Examples of Betting on MMA

Betting on MMA is popular because of how straightforward it can be. Here are some typical MMA markets you may find on the sportsbook:

MMA Betting Odds Example

TeamMoneylineTotal
Glover Teixeira+1751½ -150o
Jiri Prochazka-220+1½ +120u

In this example, Prochazka submitted Teixeira in the fifth round. The winning moneyline bet is on Prochazka. A bet of $220 would have won $100. And the winning bet on the total is over 1½ rounds as the fight was finished in the fifth round. A bet of $150 would have returned $100.

Going with a prop bet, “Prochazka to win by submission” was lined at +3000. That means whoever bet $100 on this prop would have won a whopping $3,000 as Prochazka won in this manner.

MMA odds are expressed in a variety of ways, but the most common way is to use American odds. American odds use a minus (-) sign to represent the favorite and a plus (+) sign to represent the underdog. For example, if an MMA fighter has odds of -100, they are the favorite and you would need to bet $100 to win $100. If an MMA fighter has odds of +200, they are the underdog and you would win $200 if you bet $100.
