The passion of the sport and the total dedication of the fighters have made boxing very popular all over the world. Fans are imbued with emotions raging in the ring, which cannot but affect the bets. Boxing is shrouded in legends and myths, and the fees of the most famous boxers reach astronomical sums. By the way, this is largely due to the bets that the fans make so recklessly.
Distinguish professional and amateur boxing. And since for the most part professional bets are chosen, we will dwell on the details of this particular type. As a rule, bookmakers pay attention to amateur boxing at the Summer Olympic Games.
How to bet on boxing correctly
There is a favorite in a duel, and there is an underdog, however, despite the apparent obviousness of the bets, in reality everything is not so simple. If there were no pitfalls and surprises, the bet would not make sense.
Consider inflated underdog odds
Sometimes bookmakers deliberately lower the odds for the favorite boxer. This, in turn, raises the quote on the underdog. The status of the favorite is created not by the bookmakers’ assessment, but by the fighter’s career that has been developed over the years. But bookmakers calculate odds based on the mood of the public, not the stardom of the boxer. By this they distort the actual state of affairs in their favor. A better, who has detected an overestimated odds in time, will be able to choose the right strategy and gain an advantage over the bookmaker. For the success of such bets, the following is important:
- The player is able to independently calculate the odds.
- Recognizes the overestimated coefficient.
- Adheres to the strategy of these rates, not paying attention to the probability of the outcome and indicators in the line.
- The bet on the favorite is obvious and is not interesting at a low odds, while an overestimated odds will allow you to make a profit.
A professional capper knows how to correctly evaluate boxers and their abilities and does not give in to low odds for favorites. Indeed, by its very nature, boxing is a performance in which the winner should not be obvious, otherwise the audience will lose enthusiasm and interest.
Therefore, bets on favorites do not guarantee winnings, and they need to be done quite carefully. Even the longest-playing favorites can lose in any fight: an accidental “lucky punch” can lead to your loss.
Probability of error in evaluating a boxer’s form
A boxer in this sport is for himself and can rely solely on his own strength and capabilities. Therefore, a player who did not take into account these possibilities or incorrectly assessed the physical condition of a fighter can seriously lose. A boxer may develop an unhealed injury, injure himself in training, or make a mistake in choosing a sparring partner. In the end, the coach may dictate the wrong tactics. All this can be a potential reason for losing a bet. Everything that is at stake depends on every little thing in the condition of the athlete.
The bigger the fight is, the more different opinions about it can be found in the media. If the fight will go for the title of champion, a detailed study of all the facts and circumstances will be required. After all, there will be a lot of opinions, professional and not very professional, and it will be difficult to understand them.Instead of real coverage and evaluation, you may encounter an artificial hype around a particular fighter. Therefore, it is important to distinguish professional advice from ordinary PR.
To form your own opinion and not succumb to someone else’s erroneous ones, study in detail all the resources that are available. Intuitive betting in boxing does not win. Study information about the boxer and his opponent, about the upcoming fight and his status. Where will the fight take place, because the native environment means a lot for the outcome of the fight. In what state are both fighters in real time. How are they trained. Boxing is an individual sport, so it is easier to follow and collect information about one fighter than about a team.
Take advantage of every opportunity and get deeply involved in the upcoming event. The rate is influenced by a large number of different factors, each of which can be decisive.
