Wrestling is a complex sport not merely represented with unofficial diverting competition. Not only WEE fights can be useful for bettors. In order to broaden your own horizons don’t be afraid of delving into new ones. Also it’s incredible that staged fights are quite similar to the classic fights. Let’s check the main academic disciplines to consider while gambling.
Types of wrestling: briefly review
In order to step up in the game, you need to dig into its basics. Modern wrestling is divided in such types:
- Greco-Roman one
It takes place in a standing position or a mat, but without the permission to perform leg movements and grappling below the belt.
- Freestyle one
It is also conducted in a standing position or a mat, with the permission to perform leg holds and grapples below the belt.
It is a stand up and partner wrestling with leg and below-the-waist grapples, as well as painful holds.
It is another version of the sport in which all of the above is allowed, but in addition, you can achieve victory with painful and suffocating holds.
Regional and national tournaments, continental championships or even world championships are regularly held for all of these types. Moreover, remember wrestling itself is one of the most popular Olympic sports, thus the number of such bets is huge.
By the way, sambo has recently received the status of Olympic sport in 2018.
Are there any advantages to bet on?
Of course, there are. Classic wrestling is not even worse than its TV brother. Among its strengths are:
the ability to bet on the winner of the tournament with a fairly high odds (even if the stake is placed on the favorite);
it is a great option for live betting, since the tournaments are not long-term and changeable, because of the complexity and threshold of fatigue;
it’s based on mathematical calculation of all the options, for example, of moves, thus the victory often goes to the strategist, and not to the strongest athlete. The analysis of pros and cons of fighters, their strengths and weaknesses, as well as the skills and motivation can help you to make a good stake.
So what can I bet on in such wrestling fights?
For sure, every bookmaker offer different stakes, but there are the main types to gamble on, for instance:
the winner of the fight;
In this case, it doesn’t matter how the athlete achieved the victory – prematurely or by points during or at the end of the match.
the winner of the tournament;
The biggest competitions are usually guided by the Olympic elimination system, thus there is no option to misfire, that’s why such bets are marked by good odds, even if an athlete is one of the favorites.
the handicap winner;
It’s about a victory by points, taking into account the handicap stated in the bet.
the total points;
It’s difficult to predict the result here, as the fight stands a good chance to end with a small score, or to drag on, consequently the scoreline will be bigger.
the special hold to end.
Only experienced bettors can profit here, because it’s necessary not only to analyse the statistics, but to know the onions of the chosen discipline.
To bet on academic wrestling or not?
Everyone has to decide without outside help. The advantages are evident. To gamble effectively you have to make some effort to study the field at all. However, these disciplines are similar to the old-shoe TV wrestling, it’s of high significance to puzzle out their main features and exclusive particularities. Furthermore, mention that it’s quite similar to staged wrestling fights all of us adore. And, of course, don’t forget that academic fights are highly spread, therefore due to the Olympic games lots of betting offers can be found.
