How to Bet on Boxing

Boxing Scheduling Stands Apart

The major boxing sports pro leagues (NBA, NFL, NHL, and MLB) don’t have a set schedule. Fighters remain to agree to individual matches, one at a time, usually a couple of months in advance. But with the number of numerous weight classes and the general world popularity of the sport, there are always fights to bet on.

Sportsbooks make sure of such schedule they want your business. When you will bet on a rumoured fight, you receive your stake back if the fight does not happen within a certain time period (which will be specified by the sportsbook).

Similarly goes for the boxing matches that are official but don’t end up happening for one reason or another. For instance, if one of the fighters gets injured, all bets on that match are void and wagers are returned to the bettor.

Round Betting: Boxing’s Over/Under (O/U)

Picking which fighter you may think will win is not the only way to bet on boxing. Nearly every sportsbook offers over/under bets, which are wagers on how long a fight will last. Note that betting on boxing’s over/under varies from betting on totals in conventional sports. The odds for over/under betting work exactly as they do on the Moneyline, except instead of betting on individual fighters, you bet on whether or not a fight will go past a certain round. Most of the boxing matches you can bet on are built up of 12 three-minute rounds.

On most sportsbooks, a bet on the “over” is successful once the fight goes past the 1:30 mark of the 11th round. If the boxing ends at any point before that, the “under” is successful.

Parlay Betting

Parlay betting permits you to wager on the outcome of two or more matches on a single ticket. The only variation between a parlay bet and a straight Moneyline bet is that, with a parlay, all the boxers you picked must win in order for your wager to cash. If you may parlay three bouts and even one of the matches doesn’t go as planned, you can lose all the money you put on the line. Parlay betting can be much riskier but can also be somewhat lucrative due to higher payouts.

Parlays commonly aren’t presented in any particular format on sportsbooks. You can easily add multiple wagers to your bet slip and then select the “parlay” option if one is available. Same as with single bets, you then enter in the amount you want to bet (or the amount you hope to win), and the site will calculate the other half of the equation.
