I have been really interested in MMA betting. The site that sponsors the playground won't make accounts for people in my area... I was probably going to create a Bodog account. However, while I will probably do that, they only have a handful of fights from any card available to wager on.

My question is, if I were to walk in to Caesar's Palace or The Venetian or something, do they have the full card available to wager on? Or is it usually just 1-4 fights like the online sites?

Anyone with info will be of great help.

Im not from vegas so I cant help you there but I do bet on fights. I can tell you from experience dont make a bodog or betus account. I think that 5dimes is the best book in town. They have a lot of fights to bet on and can bet as low as one dollar. They have a ton of prop bets and you can even bet on how a fighter wont win. as in Melvin Manhoef wont win by sub. pretty fun book. Also you can go to bestfightodds.com and it will show you the lines for about 7 major betting sites.

Well I dont know these sites you speak of but I will say this..or ask? How often are you allowed payouts and how fast do they come...

I will say stay away from Sportsbook too because I got on there to play poker...and you can bet sports so I think betus is the best they also have numbers up for lots of fights early...also have the prop bets....but sportsbook when I went to make a cash out they said might be 6 weeks based on their bs how many requests they had...In my experience bodog is very fast but betus does have numbers up quickly and tons of prop bets...

OH yeah when I got on sportsbook I didnt know you couldnt parlay MMA what soeve...what a joke...I like Bodog for that but Istill think Betus is the best and also usually good bonus for deposits...

Hell yeah, thanks a lot for the information Kingsmasher and CaranoGirl. Judging on your season bankrolls, you both would appear to know your stuff!

Bodog has more Juice than any other line. For that reason alone i'd avoid it.

Use a sportsbook that allows for the most possible ways of betting on the fight. Those are the sportsbooks that have the most lines worth betting. Picking Maia to win against sonnen might have been -200. But picking Maia to win via sub before round 2 starts might have won you a +200 bet.

Just don't use any negatively reviewed sites. I lost almost a grand that was in my account when BetOnSports.com all of a sudden closed down years ago.. I couldn't legally claim it was my money without admitting to a crime because of the legalities of online betting in my state. Check payouts and what cut they take when you want to cash out.

If you're a small bettor some sites will take for instance $50 if you cash out and take 60 days to get you your money. That's not a rarity either in terms of their take and the timeline on the payout. So if you're dropping in $50 into an account and plan to cash out when you double your money, you're not going to gain anything. Just be very aware of their take on the cash-out and only use a well reviewed, established site.

Here's a good site for reviews if you want to take some time and browse around a little bit: Sportsbook Reviews
