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:

PAUL FELDER    +123    
DAN HOOKER    -153 

In this fight, Hooker is the -153 favorite, meaning if you bet $153 on him and he wins, you would profit $100. If he were to lose though, you would lose the full $153.

If you were to bet on Felder at +123, if you bet $100 on him and he wins the fight, you will profit $123. 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.

And they say never bet until the weigh-ins.

I feel like felder might be even more of an underdog than that.

I agree, on paper hooker takes it, but I just have difficulty betting against Felder because he is as tough as they come. I think he weathers the storm in the early rounds and earns a tko towards the end of round 4. Either that or squeak by with a close decision.

Meek could be a star if he put it all together & gets a streak going.

 

He's lost 2 in a row though- 1 was a decision to Usman

Felder will get destroyed on the feet then do descent job grappling, but will go back to getting picked apart standing.  This is how most of his fights play out.

"UFC on ESPN+ 26, also called UFC Auckland, UFC Fight Night 168, and UFC Fight Night: Felder vs. Hooker"

Why the heck there are so many names for the same event? It doesn't seem right.
