How To Bet

Boxing / MMA

Like baseball and hockey, the money line is used to display the odds of winning in boxing and MMA.

The minus (-) on the electronic wagering display and wagering sheets indicates the favorite. The plus (+) indicates the underdog.

EXAMPLE:

BET #  
9:00 PM 2001 MANNY PACQUIAO +130
2002 FLOYD MAYWEATHER -150

In this example, Floyd Mayweather is favored and the player must lay $150 to win $100 or $15 to win $10. The player would wager $100 to win $130 or $10 to win $13 on Manny Pacquiao. In the event of a draw, wagers on who will win the fight are refunded.

ROUNDS PROPOSITION

On some fights, players have the option of betting whether the fight will go a specified distance.

Example:

BET #    
2003 WILL GO 12 FULL ROUNDS +140
2004 WON’T GO 12 FULL ROUNDS -160

In this example, the player would wager $140 to win $100 or $14 to win $10 that the duration of the fight will be more or less than 12 rounds. In rounds propositions, it does not matter which fighter wins.

For major fights, a broad range of wagers and proposition may be offered, such as how a fighter will win (KO or decision), round propositions and odds on picking the round in which the fight will end.
