No close odds on UFN 28 main card

Monday, September 02, 2013

In an unprecedented run, the UFC did three shows in eight days, moving closer to a day envisioned by UFC president Dana White in which the UFC does two shows in one day. Last Wednesay UFN 27 took place in Indianapolis, and then the promotion moved about 300 miles to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for UFC 164 on PPV. Now the operation leaps over 5,000 miles to Belo Horizonte, Brazil for UFN 28.

Headlined by Glover Teixeira hoping to land a title shot with a win over Ryan Bader, the main card features six fights. Expect a lot of finishes, based on the odds:

Marcos Vinicius (+240)
Ali Bagautinov (-280)

Rafael Natal (-260)
Tor Troeng (+220)

Francisco Trinaldo (-320)
Piotr Hallmann (+260)

Joseph Benavidez (-525)
Jussier Formiga (+415)

Yushin Okami (+225)
Jacare Souza (-265)

Glover Teixeira (-440)
Ryan Bader (+350)

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 what’s called a money line.
Glover Teixeira (-440)
Ryan Bader (+350)

In this fight, Teixeira would be the favorite and at -440 it means for every $4.40 you bet, you will win $1 if he wins the fight.  So if you bet $440 on Teixeira and he wins, you’d profit $100. If Teixeira were to lose though, you’d lose the full $440.

If you were to bet on Bader at +350, you would win $3.50 for every $1 you bet. So if you bet $100 on Bader and he wins the fight, you will profit $350. If Bader 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.

Thanks to for the odds.
