All in. 495 on Martinez to win, 300 on under 9.5 rounds. BTW as a betting noob, why is it 9.5 rounds? The half bit strikes me as odd.

If the fight goes to 1:31 seconds of the 10th round and you have money on the over, you win. Any time before that and the under wins. 9.5 = 9 and a half rounds aka 1:30 of the tenth round.

For the bookies I've dealt with cash wise, the 9.5 meant if the fighter made it to the end of the round, but IB's got his own way of doing things with this 1;30 mark.

9.5 rounds means nine rounds and one half round. Seems reasonable to me.

It's fine, but to me it seems more sensible to do the the under at the the end of a round. But whatever, it's not a big deal.

No, that probably isn't true. It is very hard for me to believe a professional would be that dumb or ignorant of their own trade. You must simply be confused and mistaken. There is no way they call it 9.5 rounds and have it mean "the end of the ninth". That isn't what 9.5 means, ANYWHERE, and it isn't subject to interpretation.

Well, you don't know shit.

Halves (that is, halves of integers) are how it is done across the board for over/under props in ALL betting...let alone just sports, let alone just boxing. There is a very good reason for it, and for why using whole integers would NOT be sensible.

Let's suppose the over/under is being set on how many times Rihanna will touch her own ass during a performance of one song at an awards show (yeah, people bet on all kinds of weird stuff ). If the bookmakers think it likely to be "around six", they'd set the O/U at 5.5...not 6. Need I explain why? She can't grav her butte HALF a time, so it is guaranteed that EITHER the over or under wins (it will be either 0-5, meaning the under wins...or 6 or more, meaning the over wins)

Likewise in odds for boxing. Often you have corner retirements or physician interventions between rounds. If say nine rounds are completed, those results are "RTD9" or "TKO9". So if bets were laid on "over/under 9 rounds" it is possible for NEITHER to win. Between rounds nine and ten is EXACTLY nine rounds completed. It is neither in an over state nor an under state. The bookie would then have to call it a push and return everybody's money. That is bad for them. SO, traditionally (pretty much universally), over/under propositions are set at halves. With "over/under 9.5 rounds" it is almost certain that one or the other will win. The only possible way for there to be a push, with the outcome in that limbo state of neither over nor under, is in the EXTREMELY rare instance that a fight is stopped with the official timekeeper's clock reading 1:30 exactly of the tenth round. Literally that exact second. If it's 1:29 completed, the under wins. 1:31, the over wins. That is a much smaller margin of error than the entire minute between rounds.

Interesting stuff.

I had no idea that online boxing fantasy betting would be so informative.

If it's 1:30, doesn't that mean that the over wins, since the last second of the 2nd minute is 1:59?

Nope, because it isn't "over 9.5 rounds (ninety seconds into the tenth round) completed". It would have to be 1:31 to be technically over ninety seconds (ie. half of a three minute round) completed. 1:29 (presumably what you meant instead of 1:59) isn't quite halfway as it is eighty-nine seconds completed ...just under.
