How Odds Work

Unlike a spread on an NFL game where one team is ahead by a certain number of points (ex. Saints +7), in MMA fights, the line on the game is called a moneyline. These 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 perhaps best explained via example:

JENNIFER MAIA +1000    
VALENTINA SHEVCHENKO -1700  

In this fight, “Bullett” is the -1700 favorite, meaning if you bet $1700 on her and she wins, you would profit $100. If she were to lose though, you would lose the full $1700.

If you were to bet on Maia at +1000 if you bet $100 on her and she wins the fight, you will profit $1700. If he were to lose the fight, you would lose your original $100 bet.

Depending on how people are betting on the fights, the odds can shift from the moment they open, right up until the night of the fights.

The sport is built on moments that make you involuntary think “HOLY F***ING S***!!!” Those can come at any time, on any portion of the card, from any fighter. Thus, some bettors look to the underdogs, sometimes big ones, as the best bets. UG, you see any ‘dogs you like?

And some say never bet until the weigh-ins which streamed live on The UG, Friday at Noon ET.
