Looking at UFC Betting at SBG Global

December 2, 2010 UFC

UFC betting is getting more popular everyday with gamblers around the world taking a look at the UFC online betting odds.

UFC betting odds are based on money lines and include choices to bet on one fighter to beat another or on how long the fight will go. Let’s consider how to bet the UFC and what you are likely to see at the sportsbook.

UFC betting odds might look like this at the sportsbook:

George St. Pierre -240
Matt Serra +200
Rounds 1.5 (under -120)

In this bout, St. Pierre is the UFC betting favorite and Serra is the underdog. If you wanted to bet St. Pierre you would risk $240 to win $100 or the 2.4/1 equivalent. If you liked Serra you would be getting $200 for every $100 you wagered if Serra won the bout or the 2/1 equivalent. You will also have the option of betting on how long the fight will go in UFC online betting. Those round options are often listed at 1.5 or 2.5 rounds since many of the bouts are short in UFC betting. They are also based on money lines just as the normal fight options are. Remember that major fights are five rounds while other fights are normally three rounds, so keep that in mind as you are looking at UFC betting.

The UFC online betting odds are available on most major events and some of the Ultimate Fighter bouts shown on Spike TV. Check out the current UFC online betting odds to see which fights are on the board. The pay-per-view events are almost always on the UFC betting board at sportsbooks and those are the most popular UFC betting events.

As you look at UFC betting this year remember to consider your choices and keep in mind that fights are on the board each month. There are always a number of different bouts on the UFC betting board which gives you many different choices. If you don’t see a fight that looks attractive you won’t have to wait long for another one to appear on the UFC betting board at sportsbooks.
