The sweet science of boxing. It’s a game that’s as ancient as civilization itself, and one that continues to hold a special place in the hearts of many people. Whether you’re a fan of the sweet science or not, there’s no denying that it’s one of the most exciting sports around. And what’s more is that you can actually place a wager on it! If you’re looking for a way to pass the time or looking to make some extra cash, why not give it a try? It’s easier than you think, and it’s something you may actually enjoy.
Where Do I Bet On Boxing?
If you’re looking to place a wager on boxing, then you’ll first want to visit a reputable bookmaker. There are a number of betting sites that feature the sweet art of boxing, and all of them will happily take your money. However, you must be of legal age, as per the state of California, to lay down a wager. Most bookmakers will also provide you with an identification number (the “Green Book”) that you can use to make wagers anonymously if you’re so inclined.
Many people prefer to place their wagers at a brick-and-mortar casino. This is where the real money is, and it’s where the action is. Unfortunately, most casinos are now outlawed in California, so you may have to head to another state to place your wagers at a land-based casino. Fortunately for you, there are also online casinos that offer the same level of betting excitement as a land-based casino with the added advantage of being able to place your wager from the comfort of your home. All you need is a reliable internet connection, and you can be good to go.
How Do I Bet On Boxing?
With all the information above, you hopefully have enough ideas on how to bet on boxing to get you started. The next step is to choose which sport you want to bet on and how much you’re willing to risk. There are a number of options when it comes to boxing, including:
- Light Heavyweight
- Junior Middleweight (160lb – 174lb)
- Featherweight (145lb – 154lb)
- Lightweight (135lb – 154lb)
- Bantamweight (118lb – 135lb)
- Super Featherweight (108lb – 118lb)
- Super Bantamweight (100lb – 108lb)
- Super Lightweight (85lb – 100lb)
As you can see, there’s a wide variety of boxers to choose from. You’ll just have to decide which one appeals to you the most. It’s also important to note that the weight classifications listed above are the official amateur boxing classifications as set down by the International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA). These are the classes that the pros compete in, and since most professional fighters are amateurs before they turn pro, you may see boxers competing mostly in the amateur classes. It’s similar to how people play baseball and never reach the pros because they don’t want to break their promise to their team and disappoint their fans. The point being that you can generally expect to see boxers compete in the classes above, with some exceptions based on their experience and the style of fighting they prefer.
What Kind Of Odds Do I Get On Boxings?
If you’re deciding to wager on boxing, then you’ll want to check out the betting odds. These will determine how much you’ll need to wager to make a profit. For example, a light heavyweight with a 5/2 odds (5 for 2, or two to one) will payout 5 to 1 when he wins. This means you’ll need to wager $100 on a $200 bet to make $100 in profit when he wins. You can also use online tools to determine how much you need to wager to make a profit, depending on the odds offered by the bookmaker. For example, a light heavyweight with a 7/1 odds (7 for 1, or one to one) will payout 7 to 1 when he wins. In this case, you’ll need to wager $70 on a $100 bet to make $70 in profit when he wins. Keep in mind that the higher the odds, the more you’ll need to wager to make a profit. It’s all about the risk and reward, as they say. Higher odds mean more possible rewards, but also more risk. Similarly, lower odds mean lower risk, but also lower rewards. In some cases, you may find that the payout for a particular boxer is so low that it’s not worth the risk for a consumer.
