How Fight Odds Work
Unlike a spread on a football game where one team is getting a certain amount of points (ex. Saints +7), in MMA fights the line on the game is called a money line.
Georges St-Pierre (-265)
Johny Hendricks (+225)
In this fight, GSP would be the favorite, meaning if you bet $265 on GSP and he wins, you'd profit $100. If GSP were to lose though, you'd lose the full $265.
If you were to bet on Hendricks at +225, if you bet $100 on Hendricks and he wins the fight, you will profit $225. If Hendricks were to lose the fight, you'd lose your original $100 bet.
Depending on how people are betting on the fights, the odds will shift from the moment they open up right up until the night of the fight.
