Betting on MMA

Anyone here bet on MMA? I mean we all use the vbookie here and it's a great way to practice. Anyone good with real money? What was your biggest win your biggest loss? Any tips and or advice for betting?

I am thinking of using real money soon because I think im getting better. I have 11k out on bets right now. What is the best site to use for MMA most likley just UFC betting for now?

I have learned from vbookie to not chase the upset and to never let emotion of favorite or most hated fighters effect your bet. I lost 21k betting on Mir.

Betting with your heart is indeed very dangerous. I would keep practicing here with Vbookie, but I have a few tips that might help.

Pay very good attention to odds from many different sites. It's very important to shop around for the best odds. If there's a fighter that you are VERY confident in winning, then don't place a bet with odds like -600 on them. Only bet on them if the odds are good. Also, try not to make a habit out of betting on underdogs just because of the odds. Small bets are ok, but not always smart. Also, parlays can help makes loads of cash if you play them smartly, but can ruin you if one fighter in the parlay loses. I can't help with reliable sites, but I do know that I've been told MANY times NOT to use Bodog. I know people who have not been paid. So beware.

And I am no expert by any means, but I'll help as much as I can.

Just out of curiosity, what individual fights did you win on? What sites? And what were the odds? Because I'm considering starting an account somewhere as well. I was pretty confident in Dunham winning and I'm upset that I didn't bet on him. Now I have two nice underdogs that I'm fairly confident in and I would like to bet on them.

unibet.com - I don't bet that often nowadays tho :-) Too much random stuff happening When I won 2k, the odds were in the 20-s, placed bets on 6 fights. 3 safe and 3 risky ones. Don't remember which ones since the betting history doesn't work atm.

Oh and does anyone know if any popular sites have betting lines for prelim fights? I would like to see some odds on the Phil Davis/Brian Stann fight and the Melvin Guillard vs Ronnys Torres fight.

What do you guys think of placing a bet on Serra/Trigg? I honestly think that Serra can take this fight easy.

What do you guys think?

Matt Serra -135
Frank Trigg +105

Honestly I don't see the point on betting on any form of fighting. Flash knockouts make it too unpredictable

If you think Serra is going to win, the odds are decent. I say go for it.

That's just silly. Don't be scared of flash KO's. Develop a smart betting strategy and stick to it. There is a good opportunity to make some coin with mma betting as it's still moving out of "niche" territory at the sportsbooks and some lines present good value as it seems oddsmakers are still getting up to speed with setting mma lines, so to speak.

But to the OP, my sportsbook (betjamaica) doesn't have great mma options, and only posts lines the day of the fights and doesn't have parlays. My last big play on there was laying money on Mir at -190 over Kongo. I saw great value in that pick and it played out quite well.

I've read great things about 5dimes for mma, so I am looking at getting an account up with them, as I'd like to make some plays for this weekends SF event. (The Nick Diaz line quickly moved from the -215 it opened with and is sitting at -255 at the moment; I was salivating at -215)

BOL to you.
