HOW DOES BETTING BOXING MATCHUPS WORK?
Betting on Boxing is fairly simple and the matchup bet is the most common wager. For each fight, you’re always going to have a favorite and an underdog. For example, Anthony Joshua is the favorite (-160) and Tyson Fury is the underdog (+140). Bettors would risk $160 on Harris to win $100. If you bet $100 on Overeem and he won the fight, your return would be $140.
HOW DOES BETTING BOXING TOTALS WORK?
Another wagering option is betting on the Total or the number of rounds the fight will last. Bettors will then decide if they believe the fight will go longer or short than the distance set by the oddsmakers. For example, the ‘over/under’ in the Joshua-Fury fight is set at 11 ½ rounds. If you believe the fight will go longer than 11 ½ rounds, then you need the fight to go 11 full rounds and half of the 12th round or more than two and half minutes. If you wager on the under, then you need the fight to end before the halfway mark of the 12th round or under the two and half minute mark. When wagering on this bet type, it doesn’t matter which fighter wins the match.
HOW DOES BETTING FINAL RESULT/METHOD OF VICTORY PROPS WORK?
Similar to the “Totals” wager, the Final Result Props was another option created by oddsmakers to minimize risk for the bettors and in some cases offer higher payouts. Not only do you have to pick the winner of the fight, but you must also select the way the fighter will win. In Boxing a fighter can win two ways, by decision or knockout.
