What is boxing betting?
Boxing and other martial arts are always a burst of emotion. Fighters’ wives often say that they simply cannot watch a fight when their husbands receive heavy blows to the face and body. They learn the result only after the fight.
Boxing stakes should be seen as buying a ticket to an attraction. The player buys a pass to the amusement park, where he enjoys the process. Bets allow you to leave the so-called park with a bonus in the form of a win.
Thanks to the bet, the player only increases the degree of the match. Each subsequent bet makes the fight spectacular, which increases its degree and media interest.
What are the types of boxing bets?
More often, bookmakers offer customers only one market – “outcome”. You can bet on the victory of each athlete, and the option of a draw is rarely offered, although it is possible. For louder events, bookmakers provide a wide list:
Winning round. The player will have to determine which round will be the last. It doesn’t matter which boxer wins. High quotes are given for such a stake, and bettors often take the option in an express bundle with the outcome. Players often bet on a specific athlete who will win a specific round, but the risks of such a stake are unreasonably high.
Total Rounds. Clients of the bookmaker are invited to determine the number of rounds in a duel. In this discipline, up to 12 rounds are allowed, but often the fight ends earlier. Totals go with small odds, but it is easier to predict the number of rounds.
Knockdowns. Bookmakers include knockdowns in the list only in the brightest events from the world of boxing.
Win type. A boxing match does not often end with a knockout or a clear advantage for the boxer. Athletes demonstrate fighting skills at a similar level and determining the outcome requires the intervention of judges. More often – among lightweight athletes. In this case, the verdict is made on points, which are determined by the judges.
Often bookmakers include a victory on points and a handicap in the list. Bettor bets on the boxer with a handicap of several points. If taking into account the handicap, the athlete wins, the stake wins.
Additional markets have higher odds, which is why bettors often resort to them in order to increase the potential winnings.
What are the life hacks in boxing bets?
In boxing, the price of every victory and defeat is extremely high. Today you are the leader of the P4P rating (the strongest boxers regardless of weight category), and after a single defeat, you are outside the best. Boxing is not tennis, not football, and not basketball. It is important to always win here! Therefore, to be successful in betting, the player should choose a competent boxer who chooses the right tactics and distributes forces over the distance.
A smart fighter adjusts to the opponent after the starting rounds. This does not mean that he will allow him to act as the number one. Such a boxer will study the opponent and start dictating his terms from the middle of the fight.
During the game, you should pay attention to where the fight takes place. If for one of the boxers it is a home fight, then in the same scenario of the fight the so-called home judges can give victory to their countryman.
In addition to weight, it is important for the player not to forget about the height and arm length of boxers. It is necessary to compare rivals that will allow making the forecast how the fight will develop.
