Boxing was among the most popular sports practiced in ancient Greece and was one of the former disciplines inside the Olympic Games. Many love the sports, they watch it either for entertainment or sometimes to earn money from it. However, there are still some who do not know how to place bet on boxing.
In placing bet on boxing, you only need to rely basically on one man, and if the correct analysis and expertise is applied, it can be worth profitable and fun. Many factors come into play when analyzing a fight, but basic principles are: size, punching power, age, quality of opposition, winning/losing streak and similar opponents.
Here are some few more tips you have to take in consideration when placing bet on boxing.
Do extra research when betting on boxing. Actually this applies not only to boxing betting but to all sports betting. The more knowledge and information you got, the more it will be easy for you to decide and the better your chances of betting correctly. You can get as many information as you want in the internet. There are many online sports betting sites that you can visit and try. Dome of these reputable sites are BetOnline.com, Bovada.lv, WagerWeb.com, BookMaker.com, BetOnUS.com and Sportsbook.com. In finding the best site to place your bet on boxing, be sure that you have also find the most favorable odds. You can also read as many expert previews of the fight as possible. These are people with expert knowledge on boxing and are likely to have several inside sources that you can’t yourself acquire. It is also important that you have studied the personal or career stories of both fighter competing in the game. Observe and review their fight styles as well as how they match up against one another.
Bet the Knockouts. Well, this is very common sense. Boxing is one of those sports where the public and the experts tend to get things right before they happen. Meaning the boxing betting odds for the favorites can be very one sided and you will have to bet a ton of money to make a decent return on your bet. A great way of circumventing this problem is to bet on a knockout.
Bet with what and how you feel. Believe in your instinct and stand for it. Everyone has had that feeling of “I knew he was going to win” after a fight. If you’ve done the proper research and you just have a feeling that one fighter is going to win over the other, you probably have that feeling for a good reason. While going with your gut on all bets probably isn’t the best idea, sometimes you just have to let rationality go and bet on your instincts. It’s much easier to lose a bet if your heart was in it than to lose a bet in which you defied your gut instincts.
