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 an example:

JON JONES    -495
DOMINICK REYES    +345    

In this fight, Bones is the -495 favorite, meaning if you bet $495 on him and he wins, you would profit $100. If he were to lose though, you would lose the full $495.

If you were to bet on Reyes at +345, if you bet $100 on him and he wins the fight, you will profit $345. If he were to lose the fight, you would lose your original $100 bet.

In addition to Moneyline (or American) odds, there are also Decimal odds and Fractional odds, which are different expressions of the same numbers.

Decimal Odds are the simplest expression of betting odds. To calculate your gross, multiple what you bet by the number. For example:
JON JONES 1.202
DOMINICK REYES 4.45
If you bet $100 on Bones and he wins, you will get  $100 x 1.202 = $120.20, leaving you with a gain of $20.20.
If you bet $100 on Reyes and he wins, you will get $445, leaving you with a gain of $345.

Fractional Odds are particularly favored in the UK and Ireland. For example:
JON JONES 20/99
DOMINICK REYES 69/20
The denominator (or second number) is the amount bet, while the numerator (or first number) is the amount that your bet will profit.

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 they say never bet until the weigh-ins.

Put some money down on Reyes. Once he finishes Jones you will never get those odds again.
