Understanding UFC Betting Odds:
UFC betting odds on the UFC Ultimate Fight Night in Las Vegas. If a newcomer to the betting world took a look at these numbers, he or she may be a bit confused. However, it really isn't all that complicated.
To help explain how the odds for betting on UFC or other MMA events work, I will provide an example of odds from one of the most watched UFC main events of all time, the rematch of Tito Ortiz vs Chuck Liddell.
Picking the outright winner:
Tito Ortiz to win -265
Chuck Liddell to win +175
Should a bettor pick Tito Ortiz to win, Couture would have to win by any means, and the bettor would receive $100 for every $265 bet. If the better had chosen Liddell to win, Liddell would have to win by any means and the better would receive $175 for every $100 bet.
Pick each fighter individually to win by knockout:
Tito by KO or stoppage +210
Liddell by KO or stoppage +270
Should a bettor pick Tito to win by knockout or ref stoppage, he or she would win $210 for every $100 bet. Choosing Liddell by knockout or ref stoppage would pay $270 for every $100 bet.
Pick each fighter to win by submission:
Tito by Submission +285
Liddell by Submission +315
Picking a winner by submission is similar to picking a fighter by knockout. Should a bettor pick Tito to win by submission, the bettor would receive $285 for every $100 bet. Picking Liddell by submission would pay $315 for every $100 bet.
