UFC Odds Tips at SBG Global

December 2, 2010 UFC

UFC Odds are based on money lines and very easy to bet. The goal though is to make money when you bet UFC odds.

Let’s look at some tips that apply to UFC betting.  UFC odds involve money lines so you need to keep that in mind before you bet. If you are betting favorites in UFC odds you will need to win a higher percentage of the time than if you are betting dogs. With UFC odds you will see some good opportunities to make money, especially if you know what to look for.

UFC bouts will have some different examples of fighting styles. You should be aware of each type of style you will see in UFC betting.  The three basic styles are striking, ground fighting and wresting. Each of these styles has advantages and disadvantages and some match up better against another style. Be aware as you look at UFC odds that ground fighting involved fighters throwing punches and attacking on the ground. Striking is similar in some respects to boxing with punches and kicks while wrestling is more of finding holds that lead to submission.

Some of these styles match up well against another style in UFC odds while others do not. Keep in mind that strikers don’t wear regular boxing gloves. They wear 4 to 6 ounce fingerless gloves. This makes throwing punches less likely unless the fighter is very skilled. That is why you see more ground fighting and wrestling. The UFC does not have that many rules and that makes for more exciting bouts and competitive UFC odds. As you examine UFC odds you should notice the fighters that can handle all fighting styles effectively.

In addition to understanding the fighting styles you should also look for value in UFC odds. That means you can’t be laying big prices in UFC betting odds unless you can win a high percentage of your wagers. On the other hand, you can go 50-50 in UFC betting if you are consistently betting underdogs. Keep some of these things in mind as you bet UFC odds this year.
