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:

ROXANNE MODAFFERI    +244    
ANDREA LEE    -344     

In this fight, Lee is the -344 favorite, meaning if you bet $344 on her and she wins, you would profit $100. If she were to lose though, you would lose the full $344.

If you were to bet on Modafferi at +244 if you bet $100 on her and she wins the fight, you will profit $244. If she 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.

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