How to Bet on Boxing
Regardless of whether you are betting on heavyweights or welterweights, a title fight, or a low-key encounter, the principles of boxing betting always stay the same. For all matches, the simplest bet to place is on which fighter will win. However, you will find many more bets available to you. For instance, you can bet on how long a fight will last, either a specific number of rounds or whether it will be more or less than a certain number of rounds. You can also bet on how a fight will be decided, by knockout, decision, and so on. You can then combine these bets when forming a betting strategy. For instance, if you think a fighter starts well but gets tired quickly, then you could bet on the fighter to lose and for there not to be many rounds. The opposite is also true, if you think a fighter starts slow, then you could bet on more rounds and for the fighter to win. Unlike most sports, boxing does not have a huge number of outright betting markets, as there are no leagues to bet on. However, you will occasionally find prop bets, which can be a huge amount of fun and give you the chance to place some more unusual bets. For example, you may find markets allowing you to bet on the number of punches each fighter will land, whether a fighter will draw blood or on which fighter will bleed first. These markets are not fixed and they change quite a lot, but they are always worth exploring and give you the chance to win a bit more. However, most of the betting markets will be on the nitty gritty of the fight itself, and these markets are explained in more detail below.
Flexibility in Boxing Betting
While there may be a clear favourite ahead of boxing match, there is no such thing as a completely safe bet, and you can try to build some flexibility into your betting strategies in order to mitigate the risks you take. By taking advantage of the many different betting markets, you can cover multiple scenarios and this will not only making watching the boxing match far more exciting, but also it will also give you many more chances of winning a bet. There is no doubt that boxing is a thrilling sport to watch, and by developing a creative betting strategy, you can make it even more so.
Boxing Betting Markets
At first, boxing can appear to be a bit confusing due to the huge number of divisions and different title belts that fighters compete for. This is because the sport has four separate governing bodies, the WBC, the WBO, the WBA and the IBF. Each of these governing bodies offers its own belts and to make matters more confusing, there are a total of seventeen weight divisions, meaning that each division can have four champions (one for each governing body), and at any time there could be as many as 68 champions. However, it is not uncommon for fighters to hold multiple belts simultaneously and some even manage to win all four in their division. The good news is that this means there is usually plenty of boxing action to bet on and here at mr.play Sports we do our best to cover as many fights as possible. We bring you as many betting markets and the most competitive odds possible, ensuring that you can always back your favourite fighters and give yourself the best possible chance of placing winning bets.
Different Types of Boxing Bets
The most basic boxing betting market is Winner Full Time, which is exactly what it sounds like, a bet on which of the fighters will win. This is often a very good place to start, especially for those who do not have a great deal of experience with the sport. Another simple market is Fight To Go The Distance, which is a straight forward yes or no bet as there are just two possible outcomes. It is a good market to use if you believe that the fighters will slog it out to the bitter end or if you think one is likely to win in just a few rounds. You can also bet on how the fight will be decided, whether it will be won by Knockout, Technical Knockout, Disqualification, Decision, Technical Decision, or even if there will be a Draw. There is also the option to bet on individual rounds of the fight. The market requires you to pick both a winner and a round, for example fighter A to win in the fourth round. There is also an Over/Under Rounds Full Time market, allowing you to bet on whether there will be more or less than a specified number of rounds. In short, there are plenty of markets and plenty of opportunities for you to place winning bets.
