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.
Vitor Belfort +500
Jon Jones -800

In this fight, Jones would be the favorite and at -800 it means for every $8.00 you bet, you will win $1 if he wins the fight.  So if you bet $800 on Jones and he wins, you'd profit $100. If Jones were to lose though, you'd lose the full $800.

If you were to bet on Belfort at +500, you would win $5.00 for every $1 you bet. So if you bet $100 on Belfort and he wins the fight, you will profit $500. If Belfort 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.

Cannot believe what I'm reading.

 

Oddsmakers think that possibly the chinniest HW in MMA, who is almost exclusively a stand-up fighter, is favored to beat the hardest hitting HW in the UFC?  

And don't get me started re: Stout/Fodor.

I'd stay away from Neer. I think Court will be able to use his size and I think his cardio will hold up too. Phone Post

Not a betting man, but Lavar is dangerous if he can corner Schaub. Really looking to be a decent card. I don't like watering down the cards with women's fights, however. That is incorrect. People don't go to and NBA game to watch the WNBA. That will either expand the market for them and pay off, or more likely dilute their cards and alienate some of their old fanbase.

The $20 on Hendo is the whole of my money and commitment to these fights, rest came from those 'free bet' emails I get every once in a while. Fun fights to play around with small change ($1 parlay on Neer, Lawler, Menjivar, Hendo and Liz nets over $1K) but its hard to guess which dogs are going to have their day.

I definitely like Lavar in this fight, but after betting on Dos Santos vs Cain, Rothwell vs Gonzaga and Russow vs Jordan I've come to not trust anyone weighing over 205 pounds, MMA or in life.

I use bovada.lv . Everyone seems to love 5dimes but I have seen government websites from the '90s with better page layouts.

I'm not too familiar with betting but I figured that 600 odds on anyone is pretty good. I placed $100 on Liz. I didn't wanna risk on doing any parlays so I just went with that one fight Phone Post
