Whether you have years of experience in sports betting or are just starting your journey, you must always take your time doing research on the athlete’s recent performance, injuries, motivation, age, weight, the importance of the fight, and the style of fighting. Let’s dive right in.
The age of a fighter directly influences their performance. Usually, athletes peak in their late 20s. We usually do not recommend betting on boxers who are older than 35 since they become underdogs compared to younger competitors. However, there are exceptions – take for example Floyd Mayweather who still wins most of the competitions and remains a heavy favorite. Since boxers get plenty of injuries, their bodies wear out much quicker than in other sports, that is why we recommend gambling on younger sportsmen. Before starting boxing gambling, you should also study the style of the athlete – are they using a defensive strategy, or do they like leading and moving?
Even if you are a pro, you should not place wagers without doing thorough research on a boxer’s recent performance and motivation. If you do not have enough time to study the performance, check out the results of at least 2-3 latest contests. If possible, rewatch the matches to assess the boxer’s speed, responsiveness, head movements, and punching power. If you see that their performance gets worse with each fight, it is better to avoid placing money on them since they are not very likely to do significant improvements. However, if you notice that a sportsman goes above and beyond to win the match and has a lot of motivation, you should consider betting on them.
Though it might seem insignificant, location plays a huge role in the outcome of the fight and your bet payouts. Local fans give extreme motivation and power to the boxer not to give up and fight till the end. If a heavy favorite is scheduled to fight with an underdog, the home field will give a big advantage to an already favorite boxer. Also, hometown athletes are more likely to win thanks to favorable judging since judges are usually from the same city or can be swayed by the local fans.
