Boxing bets and concepts
Types of boxing bets
Most often bookmakers parimatch tournament offer customers only one market - the "outcome". It is possible to bet on the victory of each athlete - P1 or P2, and the option of a draw is rarely offered, although it is possible.
For more high-profile events, bookmakers provide a wide spread:
- winning rounds;
- total rounds;
- whether there will be knockdowns;
- how many knockdowns and knockdown rounds;
- win by points or knockout.
Additional markets have higher odds, so bettors often resort to them to increase potential winnings.
It is up to the player to determine which round will be the last one. It does not matter which boxer will win. High odds are given on such a bet, and bettors often take the option in an express bundle with the outcome. Players often bet on a particular athlete who will win in a particular round, but the risks of such a bet are unreasonably high.
BC customers are offered to determine the number of rounds in a fight using the TM and TB markets. In boxing, up to 12 rounds are allowed, but often the fight ends earlier. The totals come with small odds, but it is also easier to predict the number of rounds.
Bookmakers include knockdowns in the roster only in bright events from the world of boxing. This is a difficult market to predict, but at the same time profitable in terms of odds. Bettors can determine:
- The number of knockdowns of a particular boxer in a fight;
- Round in which knockdown will occur;
- total knockdown totals.
It is easiest to guess the overall total, as this market gives bettors the right to make a mistake.
Type of victory
A boxing bout does not often end with a knockout or an obvious advantage of the boxer. Athletes demonstrate fighting skills on a similar level, and determining the outcome of the fight requires the intervention of the judges. More often it happens with lightweights. In this case, the verdict is rendered on the points, which are determined by the judges. The one who has more, wins.
Often bookmakers include in the drawing a victory on points and a handicap. The bettor bets on the boxer with a handicap of a few points. If the athlete wins with the handicap, the bet will play.
Boxing betting strategy
It is impossible to predict the outcome of the fight without a proper understanding of the sports discipline. Players use the market on the total, which is predicted easily. When lightweights meet in the ring, the end of the fight in the first rounds is unlikely. According to statistics, 73% of lightweight fights end in a judging decision. It is worth betting on the big total.
As for the heavyweights, bettors will have to carefully study the statistics of meetings of each of the athletes. Among boxers, there are both knockout fighters and distance fighters. The former give up their strength to knock their opponent out in the first minutes, while the latter tire their opponent out and work on his speed and scoring.
If two knockouts meet, the right decision is to bet on a small total. If not, evaluate the boxers' technique and strategy on your own. Often fighters use the same tactics, slightly modifying it for a particular opponent.
