What Boxing Bets Can I Place?
As with most major sports these days, there are literally hundreds of different betting markets offered by the top bookies that you can choose from. We won’t go through them all, but here are the main boxing (and UFC) betting markets.
- Winner – This is the most popular market and is simply a bet on which of the two fighters will win the bout – or indeed whether it will end in a (rare) draw. The method of victory is not important, it can be by knockout, on points, by disqualification or anything else, the important thing is simply which fighter is declared the winner at the end of the fight.
- Method of Victory – Often you will find that boxing or UFC fights are very one-sided in the ‘winner’ market so it can pay to look elsewhere to get better odds. The ‘method of victory’ market is a popular alternative to the main ‘winner’ market and allows the punter to pick the fighter they think will win coupled with the method of that win, either KO, TKO, on points, by disqualification or some combination of those. You can often also just pick the method of victory without stating which fighter you think will win, obviously at reduced odds.
- Round Betting – The ‘round betting’ market can offer some great odds by allowing you to pick in which round your chosen fighter will triumph.
- Round Group Betting – As above, but here the rounds are grouped (e.g. rounds 4-7 or 8-11 or whatever) to give you a better chance of success, but at reduced odds.
- Total Rounds – Here you are betting not on which fighter will win but just how long the fight will go on for. These bets are splits into different over/under categories, e.g. over 3.5 rounds (four or more rounds) or under 3.5 rounds (three rounds or fewer).
- To Be Knocked Down – You can bet on either one of the fighters (or indeed both) to be knocked down at some point during the fight.
- To Go The Distance – A simple bet on whether or not the fight will go the distance.
