How Do Betting Odds Work?

There are three types of betting odds for fights - Moneyline (or American), Fractional, and Decimal.

Fractional Odds
Conor McGregor 5/4 
Khabib Nurmagomedov 8/13

Decimal Odds
Conor McGregor 2.25
Khabib Nurmagomedov 1.62

Moneyline Odds
Conor McGregor +125
Khabib Nurmagomedov -162

Moneyline Odds are the +/- used on UFC broadcasts. The figure is how much money you have to bet in order to win $100 (-), and how much a $100 bet will earn (+). They are best explained via example:
Conor McGregor +125
Khabib Nurmagomedov -162
Nurmagomedov is the favorite, meaning if you bet $162. on him and he wins, you would only profit $100. If he were to lose though, you would lose the full $162. If you were to bet on McGregor at +125, if you bet $100 on him and he wins the fight, you will profit $125. If he were to lose the fight, you would lose your original $125 bet.

Decimal Odds are the easiest to understand. To calculate your gross, multiple what you bet by the number. For example:
Conor McGregor 2.25
Khabib Nurmagomedov 1.62
If if you bet $100 on McGregor and he wins, you will get $225 back, leaving you with a gain of $125. If you bet $100 on Nurmagomedov and he wins, you will get $162, leaving you with a gain of $62.

Fractional Odds are particularly favored in the UK and Ireland. For example:
Conor McGregor 5/4 
Khabib Nurmagomedov 8/13
Add the fractions together and divide by the denominator, so 5+4+9÷13=2.25 and there is your simple decimal odd. Or 8+13+21÷13=1.63, and same.

They say never bet until the weigh-ins. The weigh-ins are over, so place your bet at BetVictor.com.
