UFC 145 Props & Free Picks Contest

Saturday’s MMA action is nearly upon us, and you should know by now who your UFC 145 picks are and what you will be betting. The only questions that really remain are, where will you be betting and will you be getting the best MMA odds possible? Some sportsbooks offer better betting opportunities than others, so it is very important to shop around and get the best MMA lines possible to maximize the returns on your money. MMA props give you a shot at earning even more on your betting investments by wagering less if you have studied fights and have a good feeling about what the final results will be. For example, if you think “Suga” Rashad Evans (22-1-1) will upset Jon “Bones” Jones (15-1) and reclaim the UFC light heavyweight title in the main event, why not bet him to win by submission at +1000 or KO, TKO or DQ at +750 rather than the +360 you would get on him to simply win the fight? A $100 wager could make you $1,000 or $750 under those scenarios compared to $360. Money has been coming in on the underdog Evans this week leading up to UFC 145, pushing the line down on him to win from +405, so taking a chance on props can earn you even more money. The same goes for picking the champ and heavy favorite Jones, as you could bet less money on a prop to win the same amount or more than if you wagered on him to just win the fight. Jones is -460 to beat Evans, meaning you would need to bet $460 to win $100. But you could also bet Jones to win by submission at +220 and risk much less to win more or take -175 that he will win by KO, TKO or DQ. Jones has won three of his last four fights by submission with the other coming via TKO. Another way you can make money on MMA betting is through free UFC picks contests at different sportsbooks. Several Bookmakers.com and MMAOddsBreaker are offering $2,000 in prize money to those bettors who not only pick the correct UFC 145 winners but also the correct method (i.e. submission, KO/TKO or decision), correct round and correct minutes the fights will end. You earn points for each MMA pick category, and they are all added up to determine the winners. Entering a free UFC contest can make it even more fun to watch the fights, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to bet UFC 145 and always make sure to take advantage of the best MMA odds you can get.
