    Sports betting on UFC

    Anyone doing this? I'm just starting but I find it to give a nice additional thrill to watching the fights.

    All the time, I have been doing it off and on since 2008 and I have a few friends and we will pool some money together and usually bet on Silva when he fights or if we just know a guy is going down, even if we have to put more down just to turn a profit on it. Didn't work out last time though with Anderson, but that man has won me a few dollars for sure.. I really like the prop parlays as well where you pick 4 things to happen at a PPV event and if you hit it you have some good odds in there to make some real money on a twenty. I love betting on football too, I can usually make a couple hundred a weekend picking 3 parlays at $20 a piece and always get at least one usually to cover my money and win almost double on it.

    Yeah I'm throwing a lot more money at football too. It's better in the sense that you have a lot of games every week so you have a big choice of things to bet on. And you can find nice odds. I usually do systems where I have for example 6 different games. You get 3 of those games right and you're on your own, anything more is a bonus... whereas in UFC generally the odds are horrible so you do need to play with a lot to get something in your pocket.

    I follow the odds and participate in some fake bet websites but I have not wagered actually money. Crimsonghost is right, the odds on UFC fights make it very difficult to end up with anything meanwhile in your pocket.

    It's the same with football. People bet on football, soccer, even golf. MMA is a risky bet because it is really difficult to determine who will win. It has many variables like how often they're on the mat, if they're sick and what not. I used to bet on UFC fights all the time but lost too much money due to the unpredictable nature of UFC.

    I don't bet on lines. But I do occasionally do personal bets with friends, and some times I do active pools like the fantasy pool on Sherdog, for a little cash. But MMA is such as unknown and MMA math doesn't ever matter, that I don't like to allow that much risk to my investments.

    I only bet on fighting sports, sometimes football (soccer) but just between friends. The money makes things more interesting. I hate to bet in casinos or card games, I like to bet on skill not chance.

    UFC and Boxing is probably the worst sports to bet at. Betting on basketball is fine but I would not want to do it. I would rather focus on Poker as it's a game of skill.

    I bet on just about every UFC card, and most WSOF and Bellator cards. I'm not very good at it, but I keep the amounts I bet low and mostly just do it to add some excitement when I'm watching events.

    I don't bet on fights I just don't have the extra money to throw away I just watch MMA for the enjoyment.
