Moreover, if you don’t know or you’re unsure what UFC betting online entails, then we’ll be going over the various the UFC bets that you can place on our sportsbook. We’ll also be going over the reasons why you might want to consider UFC betting Canada and why you should consider Betiton out of all the possible UFC betting sites out there. Finally, we’ll also be going over the other forms of MMA betting that you can enjoy on our sportsbook. 

What Are UFC Markets?

So, you’d like to try out betting on the UFC, huh? Well, there’s a few things that you’ll need to know about before going into action. The most fundamental thing you need to know is what UFC betting markets are. This is because markets are what you’ll be using to bet with. Essentially, markets are the UFC bets that are offered to players on UFC sportsbooks. If bettors wish to wager on the UFC, or any other sport for that matter, they’ll have to do so through markets.

As readers can easily figure out, betting markets are offered by bookmakers. They are offered on certain conditions that need to be fulfilled for the UFC bet to be a winner. This can be anything that happens in the course of a fight. For example, whilst players can simply bet on who the winner of a fight is going to be, they can also bet on how the fight is going to end. 

At the same time, bookmakers provide odds alongside UFC markets. We’ll be explaining what UFC odds are and how to make sense of them in a future section. But till we get there, it’s good to know that they’re important and that players need to know how to understand them in order to make smart wagers. For now, however, we’ll be going over what UFC markets you can find at Betiton Canada.

Bet on UFC Canada: What Can You Bet On?

To help you get an idea of what betting markets are and what markets you can expect to find on MMA, we’ll be going through a sample of UFC betting markets that we offer on our sportsbook. Consider this as our UFC betting guide for players who’d like to give UFC sports betting a try. So, if you want a cut of the action, maybe you can try out these betting markets.

Moneyline

This is the most popular and common betting market on the UFC. For this market, bettors simply need to bet on who they think is going to win in a UFC fight.

Method of Victory

An interesting betting market that requires players to wager on how they think the fight is going to be won. There are 3 ways that the fight can end: knockout, submission, or via a judge’s decision. Be sure to read our “How Winning in the UFC Works” section to understand the terminology used in this market.

Fight to Go the Distance

For players to win their bets on this market, they need to correctly guess if the fight “goes the distance,” that is, if the fight will keep going to the end instead of finishing early in one of the rounds.

Victory by Decision

If the fight does end up going the distance, which means that neither fighter has knocked out the other or submitted, then the fight goes down to the judges to decide who’ll be the winner of the fight. This is known as the “victory by decision” market, as the fight has to determined by the judges’ decision and their scores. There are 2 outcomes that can happen in this market:

  1. Decision: the fight has gone the distance and now it’s up to the judges to decide who the winner will be.
  2. Technical Decision: the hasn’t gone the distance as it was stopped prematurely but not due to one of the fighters being knocked out and submitting. The winner of the fight is then decided by the judges.

Over/Under Rounds

Over/under bets are very popular across many sports. This is a market where players “bet against” the bookmaker, so to speak. To clarify: the bookmaker gives a specified number of something. In the case of the UFC, the bookmaker says that the fight will go on for a number of rounds.

Players then have to defy the bookmaker’s prediction by saying that the fight will last more rounds (over) or less (under). So, for example, the bookmaker says the the fight will end in the third round. However, you have a sneaking suspicion the fight is going to end earlier, so you stake on under. The UFC bet wins if it the fight ends in either the first of second round!

UFC Round Betting

Bettors need to correctly guess in which round the fight is going to end for their bets on this market to win. You also have the option to bet on whether the fight will continue in a particular round and at what time you think the fight will finish a particular round.

UFC Spread Betting

Not all matchups in the UFC are “fair”, so to speak. Sometimes, you’ll get 2 fighters of uneven strengths fighting against each other. This obviously creates an awkward situation where betting on the stronger fighter is unprofitable and betting on the weaker figher doesn’t make sense. Betting on the spread corrects this as when placing a UFC spread, the stronger fighter has to have a greater performance for the spread bet to win. This evens the odds of both fighters.

Say, for example, you’re going to bet on the fight to finish by decision and you’re placing a UFC spread on how many points a fighter will gain at the end of the match. The stronger fighter will need to win by “more points” for your UFC point spread to be a winner. Otherwise, the weaker fighter has to lose by “fewer points” than the spread for you to win your wager.

Live UFC Betting

What could possibly make betting on the UFC more exciting? Well, UFC live betting, of course! This is when you’re placing MMA bets on the fights as they are happening live! The benefit of live UFC betting is that you’re taking advantage of the fluctuating UFC live odds in real time, which can possibly give you an edge over betting on the UFC before any fights have taken place.

UFC Prop Bets

If you’re looking to change the way you bet on the UFC, then UFC props are the betting option for you. These are interesting and additional ways of betting that go beyond the simple moneyline and method of victory markets. What’s even better is that there are a variety of UFC betting props that you can make use of, giving you a variety of betting angles that will give you a fuller experience of UFC online betting.

When it comes to what UFC prop bets you can place at Betiton, here is a sample of what we offer:

  • First Minute Finish: you’ll be betting on whether the fight will finish in the first minute.
  • Time of Finish: with this MMA bet you need to bet on the time you think the fight will finish.
  • Point Deduction: finally, with this market you’ll be betting on whether a point will be deducted during the fight.

UFC Player Prop Bets

Similarly, you also have the option of betting on the individual fighters with UFC prop bets. For example, you can bet on which fighter will finish the fight and how.

UFC Future Bets

A special sort of UFC bets are the UFC future bets which allow you to bet on who you think will be the future champion of their division, for example. This is an interesting sort of online UFC betting because it has the possibility of offering fantastic value odds as well as a lot of excitement as you’ll have to wait until the champion is finally announced before being able to win your MMA bet!

UFC Best Bets

If you’re wondering which are the best UFC bets between spread, moneyline, total, or any other bet, is better then we’re here to tell you that there is no UFC bet that is better than the other! This is because MMA betting is all about having fun betting on fantastic fights and on your favourite sport (or one of your favourite sports!). However, we don’t want to seem like we’re evading the question, so we’ll be providing you with information about the differences between some of the bets on UFC that you can place on Betiton.

Spread vs Moneyline

We’ve already seen what the moneyline and spread bets are, but which one should you actually go for? Well, there are advantages and disadvantages for the both of them. With the UFC moneyline, you’ll be opting for a much easier and straightforward betting option. However, there’s always the fact that with moneyline betting, you’ll be settling for a lower payout.

The UFC spread, on the other hand, offers a bigger payout but it’s not as easy to win as the moneyline bet. And, if you’re still a beginner player, you might find spread betting a bit more complex. However, when all’s been said and done, there’s always the option of placing a parlay bet and betting on both the moneyline and the spread! That is, if you’re up for it, of course.

Spread vs Total vs Moneyline

We’ve seen the differences between the moneyline and spread bets, but about totals bets? A total bet is a wager on the total amount of points scored between 2 participants. In the case of the UFC, you might want to bet on the total number of points gained by both fighters. This is an interesting betting market that can give you improved odds.

UFC Fights You Can Bet on at Betiton Canada

Anyone who has been following the UFC for some time can tell you that there are a number of events that players can bet on. However, if you’re completely new to UFC betting online then you ought to know what these events are before placing your first UFC bet Canada.

In order to help you get started with your Canada UFC betting journey, we’re going to explain to talk about the different sorts of UFC fights that you can watch and the differences between these. Bear in mind that you can bet on both of these kinds of fights on our sportsbook.

Pay Per Views

These are the most prestigious fights that occur in the UFC event calendar. These are so-called “numbered events”, such as, for example, UFC 100. Pay per view matches feature the best fighters on the UFC roster and generally also include a title UFC fight.

UFC Fight Night

On the other hand, fight nights are less high-profile UFC fights that happen on a regular basis. In these events, lower ranked fighters participate. Despite this, UFC fight night events are also known to showcase extremely capable fighters in their own right.

UFC Apex

The UFC Apex is an extension of the UFC and a live events centre located in Las Vegas. In fact, the UFC Apex hosts live shows that are known as the UFC Vegas events. If you’re interested in the UFC Apex, we offer a great selection of UFC Vegas odds every time the fights come round.

Moreover, a number of fantastic fighters have participated in Cage Warriors over the years, including the likes of Conor McGregor, making Cage Warriors betting another interesting way of online MMA betting.  

PFL Betting

The Professional Fighters League (or PFL for short) is the newest MMA promoter that we’ll be looking at. Founded only in 2018, it’s already making strides in the world of mixed martial arts. In fact, it’s the first major promoter company to have fighters fight in seasons and championships, rather than fights throughout the year. With the Professional Fighters League championship happening every year, PFL betting can be an interesting way of betting on MMA when the championship comes round.

So, if you’re interested in betting on MMA and would like to support the women of MMA, the Invicta FC is the league for you!

Betiton’s Guide to Smarter UFC Betting: UFC Odds & UFC Betting Tips

two red boxing gloves fist bumping

Betting is meant to be a fun experience, and nothing more than that. The world of sports betting follows the classic adage, “you win some, you lose some,” almost to a tee. Losing is simply a natural part of the game, and should be regarded as such. However, in spite of that, there are still ways to make bets which prove to be more successful, thus helping you enjoy your time betting even more.

In fact, understanding UFC odds can help you place better bets. Moreover, you could also use UFC predictions, MMA predictions, and UFC betting tips to your advantage when betting. After explaining what betting markets are and what they entail, we’ll now be explaining what odds and tips are, and how you can use them to your advantage. Read the upcoming sections of our UFC betting guide to know how to step up your betting game when betting at Betiton.

Our UFC Betting Tips

If you’re going to be betting on UFC matches then there a few things that you ought to keep in mind. Whilst we’ll be explaining what MMA odds are and how they can help you place smarter UFC bets in the next section, in this section we’ll be giving you a number of important MMA betting tips that you ought to keep in mind when betting on MMA in general.

1. Place UFC Bets with Value

The first of our UFC tips is a bit of a cliche and that’s to only place bets that offer value. Simply placing bets randomly won’t cut it. And you’re going to need to identify which bets can potentially offer you a nice win as well as a healthy chance of success. To do this, you’re going to need to understand how UFC betting odds work, and that’s why it’s imperative to read the section after this one. Moreover, identifying value bets in UFC betting goes beyond simply reading the offered fight odds and doing a bit of investigative work on your end, which is where our next section comes in.

2. Do Your Own Research & Compile Your Own Data

Ding your own research is much more preferable to simply consulting UFC predictions and blindly placing stakes on UFC betting lines. Tips are fantastic for beginner bettors, especially because tipsters will usually explain their lines of reasoning behind their UFC picks. This helps beginners understand what to look out for when making an analysis of the fights and what information is relevant.

However, doing one’s own research is generally preferable for a number of reasons, including the fact that even tipsters can overlook something. Moreover, with so many tipsters out there claiming to offer the best tips, how can you be so certain about their abilities? Finally, wouldn’t it simply be more fulfilling to come to your own conclusions and making your own MMA picks when making your wagers? This is exactly why doing your own research is so important. 

3. Specialize in a Division

If you’re going to be taking up UFC betting seriously, then you should consider specializing in a particular division. With 12 divisions (8 for men and 4 for women’s MMA), it’s a bit difficult to keep up with the goings-on of every division! When you specialize in one weight class, you’ll become an expert on just about everything that happens in that class. That way, you’ll be able to spot good MMA bets with some seriously good odds.

4. Enjoy Watching the Sport

Perhaps this is a bit of a silly tip, but when you’re caught up in the rush of UFC betting online and looking up UFC stats and predictions, you might end up forgetting that you can actually watch the sport you’re betting on! Oftentimes, simply watching the sport itself can be the best method of research rather than wasting time looking up silly statistics! Not that UFC stats aren’t useful or anything, but watching the sport you’re wagering on can often help.

5. Have Fun

The final tip that we’ll be giving you is to actually just enjoy betting on UFC. Sports betting is meant to be nothing more than another form of entertainment, and so it should be fun! And when it’s fun, you can take any losses you incur in your stride. Finally, other tips that you ought to keep in mind is to stay healthy; to never bet more than you can afford; and to make time for important things in life, like family and friends.

UFC Odds Explained

Betting odds UFC explain two things: how likely a particular outcome is, and how much you can expect to make should you predict the outcome. They are represented in either of 3 formats: decimal, fractional, or American. The only differences between these different formats is 1) where in the world they’re most popular and 2) how they show you the probability and payout. Because of this, choosing a format is largely a matter of preference.

However, whichever format you prefer to work with, understanding how they work can help you place better UFC fight bets. We’ll be going over how the different formats work in the next section, but there’s a principle that all these formats follow. The higher the UFC betting odds, the higher the return but also the higher the chances that the wager won’t go your way.

On the other hand, the lower the odds are, the lower both the associated risks and rewards are. This is important to keep in mind. So, whether you are following UFC predictions and UFC betting picks you found online or a friend gave you, it is always important to understand the fight odds presented to you before jumping into action. This is so that you’ll know how likely or unlikely you are to win.

Moving on, each available market will have odds assigned to it. The bookmakers who set these, use a variety of inputs to determine each odd. These factors include the contender’s previous performances, current form in their division, and strength, and so on. Increasingly, algorithms are used to help turn the art of odd-setting into an exact science. Now that you know what MMA odds are and what they show, we highly suggest to read our next section where we explain how they themselves work.

An Easy Guide to Reading UFC Odds

As we already mentioned, there are 3 different ways to show UFC betting odds, all of which are available at Betiton. Whilst these formats represent the MMA fight odds differently, they all show the same exact things, ultimately making them fairly interchangeable.

Decimal

Decimal odds are also known as European odds because of their popularity in continental Europe. This format is also the format of choice in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Canadian bettors are going to most likely encounter this format. Because of this, we’re explaining decimal odds first. Decimal odds are represented by decimal numbers such as 3.00. The lowest possible decimal odds is always 1, which indicates a 100% chance of success.

Anything higher than 1 veers away from the 100% likelihood, becoming less and less likely. It’s largely said that this is the easiest format to understand as it’s fairly straightforward, so explaining it shouldn’t be too hard. However, to truly understand this format there are couple of calculations that you’ll need to do and keep in mind. The first of which is how to be able to determine the probability of the MMA betting odds.

For this, simply divide 100 by the UFC fight odds presented. This simply calculates how far away the odds are from 100% chance of success. Using the odds we mentioned above, the calculation would be like so: 

  • 100 ÷ 3 = 33.3

Therefore, the likelihood of the event happening is 33.3%. Another calculation that you should keep in mind is how to find out the payout of the wager. This can be done by multiplying the MMA fight odds by your bet and then subtracting your original stake from the result. It might sound complex when explained with words but it’s actually quite easy to do. Let’s say that you’ve decided to play $20 on the odds of 3. To know how much you’ll win if the wager manages to go your way, all you need to do is:

  • 20 × 3 = 60
  • 60 – 20 = 40

The total return will be $60, which includes your original stake paid back. The profit you’ll earn, however, is $40.

Fractional Odds

mma betting betiton canada

Fractional odds, also known as British odds because of their popularity in the UK and the Republic of Ireland, use a slash to separate the numerator and the denominator, such as 1/7. Essentially, they use fractions to represent the UFC odds. Whilst fractions may be complicated to understand, there are a couple of simple tricks that you can use to find out how much the bet pays and how likely it is to win. The first trick is to look at the numbers of the fractions.

If the number on the right is larger, then the MMA odds are low (they’ll definitely be higher than 50%). On the other hand, if the number of the left is the bigger of the two, then the odds are high (lower than 50%). The second trick also involves looking at the numbers. If you take the right number to mean your stake, and the left to mean the return, then you can easily figure out how much you’ll receive on top of your wager.

Let us look at a couple of examples to show you what we mean. UFC betting odds of 1/7 tell you that for every stake of $7 you make, you’ll receive $1 on top of it. On the other hand, if we invert those numbers to 7/1, these odds tell you that for a wager of $1, you’ll get a payout of $7.

American Odds or Moneyline Odds

Moneyline odds, also known as American odds because of their main use in the US, are expressed by a positive or negative sign and a number, for example, +300. Depending on whether the numbers are positive or negative, they’ll show you either:

  • how much you need to wager for a return of $100 (negative)
  • how much you’ll receive for staking $100 (positive)

This means that fight odds of +300 show you that for a wager of $100, you’ll receive $300 on top of it. Odds of -300, however, tell you that you need to bet $300 to receive $100. Finally, positive odds are generally high, whilst negative odds are generally low.

What Are UFC Predictions?

Tipsters advise people by way of predictions on who is most likely to win, which UFC betting odds to take, how much they should stake, what the UFC betting trends are, and so on. Moreover, tipsters visit various UFC betting sites Canada to give their readers advice on where to place their UFC bets. At the same time, they suggest which sportsbook offers the best bonus out of all sportsbooks.

Tipsters offering tips on UFC fights usually specialize in this kind of sport, helping them gain a better, deeper and more accurate understanding of UFC predictions. If you’re looking for fight night predictions, you can find tipsters on a number of different platforms, offering tips to help you make the right UFC expert picks. Tipsters offer their tips either for free or at a price, but both can be fairly accurate.

When making a prediction, tipsters tend to make analysis after analysis of a lot of information regarding the sport they specialize in. This information can be categorised into historical data of past events as well as data relating to the upcoming event. Relevant data includes: the contenders’ reach, age, their fighting styles, their standings of the participants, and how good on the ground each contender is.

A tonne of other data is also used to try to make an educated guess. UFC predictions are usually given a few hours prior to the start of the UFC fight. This gives bettors enough time to place their bets. It might also be a good idea to get tips from different sources and then compare the available predictions. This will help you get a broader view of what to expect once the bell rings and the bout starts.

Where to Find UFC Fight Predictions

There are a number of places where you can find valuable and fairly reliable UFC predictions on the internet. Firstly, you’d want to look at reputable sports websites like Bleacher Report, MMA Mania, MMA Fighting, and Bloody Elbow. Then you might want to also look at sports betting tipster sites, of which there are plenty all over the internet. Finally, you might also want to consider looking up a UFC betting forum.

Whilst you might think that reading predictions on the sites we mentioned might be enough, reading the posts on a UFC forum might actually be very helpful! This is because UFC forums are frequented by a multitude of tipsters as well. Moreover, there will be some very big UFC fans that know the sport inside out as well as any tipster. In your search for information, a UFC betting forum might actually prove useful!

The Utter Limit of UFC Betting Predictions

Why Should You Consider UFC Betting Canada?

There are many reasons why punters should consider betting on the UFC, other than the simple fact that betting is fun. Since its introduction, the UFC has evolved from a no-holds-barred contest to a sport that is governed by rules which are known as The Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts. Moreover, there are 12 weight divisions in the UFC. These range from Flyweight to Heavyweight in the men’s division and Strawweight to Featherweight in the women’s division. These are integral to the rules as they regulate the competition, making it as fair as possible.

Since its founding in 1993, the UFC has grown to be the biggest MMA promotions company in the world. The UFC boasts the best MMA fighters in the world, which is definitely an important consideration. In fact, bettors can enjoy heart-pumping, jaw-clenching fighting delivered by the likes of Israel Adesanya; Jon JonesAnthony Smith; Francis Ngannou; Thiago Santos; Charles Oliveira; Curtis Blaydes; Daniel Rodriguez; Jiri Prochazka; Dustin PoirierJan Blachowicz; Arnold Allen; Calvin KattarJustin Gaethje; Alexander Volkanovski; Kamaru Usman; and Derrick Lewis.

This is only the tip of the UFC iceberg and a brief glimpse of MMA betting Canada. The UFC has held over 500 events so far. These includes fights which showcased some of the greatest fighters on the planet at the time, like Khabib Nurmagomedov and Georges St-Pierre.

How Does Winning in the UFC Work?

If you’re new to MMA, then you’re going to need to know some basic things. MMA is a full-contact sport that takes place in an octagonal ‘ring’. A full-contact sport is one where the rules allow for significant physical impact between players. In UFC fights, athletes from different disciplines with different techniques and skills compete. In order to win a fight, a fighter has to fight their opponent until they achieve victory through either:

  1. Knockout
  2. Submission
  3. Points

We’ll be explaining what these terms means further on in this section. However, it’s good for punters to know what is and isn’t allowed in an MMA fight: contenders are allowed to use virtually any martial art they are proficient with. This means that contenders can punch, kick, elbow, knee, throw, wrestle, choke, and lock their opponents. However, there are a number of things that are forbidden in the match, including biting, hair-pulling, eye-gouging, head-butting, and so on.

Using these illegal moves in a fight earns the fighter a warning and can lead to disqualification. If both fighters use illegal moves, however, a no contest may be called. This is when the fight is stopped and no one is declared a winner. In the UFC, contenders have 5 rounds in which to defeat their opponent. Each round is 5 minutes long, and can be ended early if one of the contenders wins the round. Otherwise, a decision will have to be taken at the end of all the rounds.

Knockout

A knockout is probably the most common form of victory in MMA, and the one that fans enjoy the most. There are actually two forms of knockouts:

  1. Knockout (KO)
  2. Technical Knockout (TKO)

A knockout is when a fighter is knocked unconscious during a fight. This is generally the outcome of a powerful strike or a series of strikes. The fighter has a limited amount of time to get up, otherwise their opponent wins. A technical knockout, on the other hand, is when a fighter is considered unfit to continue fighting. This happens when the fighter is deemed unable to defend himself or when it’s too dangerous to let the fighter carry on the match.

Submission

Submission, or “tapping out” as it’s also known, is when a fighter is put into a painful lock, like an armbar, and gives in to the pain. The submission can be done by tapping the floor or their opponent, or saying they submit. Similar to a submission, a fighter can forfeit the fight if they believe they can’t continue fighting, due to an injury, exhaustion, or any other reason.

Points

If neither a knockout or a submission happens during the course of a fight, then the winner is decided based on the number of points they’ll have received from a panel of judges. The fighter with the most points is said to “win by decision.”

This means that they have a higher chance of winning. Not every bettor out there is looking for get-rich-quick schemes when it comes to betting. In fact, some players simply do it for the fun and thrill of betting, and what’s more exhilarating than winning?

What is spread betting?

Spread betting is an interesting market offered by bookies that helps balance out the odds in unequal UFC fights. When a match between 2 fighters of very different strengths happens, the odds are skewed in favour of the stronger fighter. This means that betting on the favourite in unprofitable and betting on the underdog is a long shot. Spread betting “corrects” this by placing a point spread which levels the playing field. The point spread means that the favourite has to win with more points for a bet on him to win. On the other hand, a bet on the underdog wins if the underdog wins the match outright or loses by fewer points than the spread.
