With a growing sport’s business, it’s always going to bring interest in from the bookmakers. Past times have been a struggle to find a European bookmaker that would even offer bets in the mixed martial arts world. At one time only a couple of bookmakers would offer anything at all. Times have changed and now we see bookmakers rushing to get odd’s out on UFC and other MMA organizations hoping to draw in the interest of the public towards the ever growing sport.</p><h2 style="text-align:center;">Top 16 Bookmakers Offering UFC Markets</h2><ul> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betway</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">William Hill</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Bet365</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Paddy Power</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Ladbrokes</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Unibet</a></li> <li><a href="http://affiliate.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=155&amp;a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Pinnacle</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Coral</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betfred</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=95095aa3-ae41-43ba-886d-99a97893c4a3" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Boylesports</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=8e57de00-8c0e-4848-b6da-ea2a0f565fb1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">888sports</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b2e07733-b156-44ba-bdcb-83e67b8f8c27" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Sportingbet</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=8cb1fdf6-5659-4f16-a75b-679218b0115e" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">10bet</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=dcba5f2b-1dd5-4c29-82c4-99531abcc5db" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Matchbook</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betfair</a></li> <li><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=376f5bc9-c4b3-4330-ab54-78e9a2ac8dec" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">MansionBet</a></li></ul><p> </p><h2 style="text-align:center;">UFC - Money line, Method of Result, Round Betting and O/U</h2><p style="text-align:center;"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5ca103ae38ba6d009a527bba/original-UFC-money-lines" style="width:690px;height:416px;" /></p><p>No different than any other sport, UFC offers multiple markets giving punters multiple paths to walk down and a nice selection of odds.</p><p><strong>Bout Betting/Money-line: </strong>This is the most common way to bet UFC, simply pick who you think is going to win the fight. Naturally, the most favoured fighter will have the lower odds and bring in a smaller amount of return on your investment than it would if you placed a bet on the higher priced fighter better known as the underdog.</p><p><strong>Method of Result: </strong>Similar to the money line betting but this time you decide if you think the fighter will win by TKO, Submission or Decision. Also very popular with punters because it offers better value over the basic money line bet.</p><p><strong>Round Betting: </strong>The most lucrative market when betting MMA is the round betting market. Doing exactly what it says on the tin, pick which round you think the fighter will end the fight in. Huge odds with great returns.</p><p><strong>O/U:</strong> The overs/under market is also pretty self-explanatory. You are given a price on the amount of time you think the fight will last. So you can bet over 2.5 rounds if you think the fighters don’t have a chance to end the fight or alternatively you could take the under 2.5 rounds if you thought that one of the fighters has the potential to end the fight.</p><p> </p><h2 style="text-align:center;">Knowing the Fighters</h2><p style="text-align:center;"><br /><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5ca10397bb51fd008e372f24/original-UFC-Fighting-octagon-2" style="width:690px;height:459px;" /></p><p>When betting on the UFC it’s also important to <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/fighting/" target="_blank" title="UFC/MMA Betting Tips">keep track on the fighter’s you have interest in betting on</a>. Outside octagon activity can affect a fighter, along with weight cuts and numerous another day to day issues we all deal with. It’s sometimes easy to forget when watching such warriors that they are just human like the rest of us and physiology can play a big part in the outcome of fighter’s career.</p><p>It’s easy to know a veteran fighter who has been around a while and sometimes that can go against a price we get given at the bookies, so spotting a hot prospect early on in his career can be a great method to gain profit before he eventually gets noticed by the bookmakers.</p><p>Most importantly, a fighter is only as good as his last fight. The UFC Fight Pass website has a back catalogue for every fighter on the roster, watching the fight tape and studying both fighters involved in the fight you’re betting on is always going to be the smartest thing to do before placing any bets.</p><p> </p><h2 style="text-align:center;">The Make Money Conclusion</h2><p style="text-align:center;"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5ca103e7bb51fd008e372f25/original-Conor-McGregor" style="width:690px;height:362px;" /></p><ol> <li>Control your bankroll – Put aside a set amount (e.g. £1000), break that down into unit’s (e.g. 10 units @ £100 = £1000) leaving your starting bankroll at +10 units. Then bet with caution, strategy and discipline to avoid any major dents to the bank.</li> <li>Shop for your odds – Make sure you don’t just take the first odd’s you see, some bookies offer huge price differences on certain fights and in getting as much value as possible might not seem all that much in the beginning, long term it will have a huge effect on your bankroll.</li> <li>Strengths and weaknesses – Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of the fighters you’re betting on are pretty obvious but some people can just overlook one fighter based on the favouritism of his opposition. Always do your research of both fighters competing, even the huge underdog’s because you might find value along the way.</li> <li>Analysis – Historical statistics, Weight cut’s, Fighter IQ, Fight history, Tape study… Analyse it all. Your inside information and study combined with some passion for the sport, you may be able to grow as a new bettor will eventually lead you to be comfortable in laying down UFC wagers like a pro.</li></ol><p> </p><p style="text-align:center;"><strong>Check out some of the best available odds for UFC/MMA <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/fighting/">HERE at Oddsmarket.com</a></strong></p>
