Despite the recent sports gaming laws that has made sportsbetting available in several US states Las Vegas remains the hub for big gamblers to place MMA/UFC bets. Million-dollar wagers can be placed on an MMA bout in Sin City which is why it still remains a hotbed for the whales. The sportsbooks in New Jersey also take major action on UFC bouts but Las Vegas is currently the capital for the mixed martial arts scene. In the last decade MMA has overtaken boxing in Vegas with MMA fights being scheduled with greater frequency than boxing.
What happens if the line moves on a bet?
In 2018 alone Las Vegas played host to four pay-per-view MMA events at the T-Mobile arena. One of the most commonly asked questions when betting on MMA is what happens if the line moves on a bet? For example, if you bet a fighter at -200 moneyline and by the time of the fight the odds changed -220. Once your wager is placed, you’re locked in to the line listed on your ticket so -200 are the odds despite the line move.
Do different sportsbooks offer different MMA lines?
All of the sportsbooks will offer similar lines on MMA fights but depending on where the action is moving lines at each Casino. This is where “line shopping” comes in handy to find the best value. A fighter that you want to gamble on might be listed as a +120 underdog at one sportsbook and listed at +190 at another.
