    the person in the minus column is the favorite to win, while obviously the

    person with the + is the underdog. A good example , and also, in my opinion

    a good bet to lay down, the upcoming HUGHES vs. BJ PENN . Now, i hope BJ

    wins, but the odds will be against him . lets say theoretically speaking the

    odds look a little something like this
    hughes - 180
    penn + 180
    that would mean in order to WIN $100 betting on hughes to win, you would

    have to bet $180, so if he DID win the payout would be $280, if betting the

    $180 in the first place. Now, obviously, double the bet to 360, and youll win

    and extra $200 and so on .... betting on Penn ( my choice ) would be the

    same as hughes, except you would have to bet alot less to win alot more.

    Sorry, i just realised that im not too sure how the bets work for the

    underdog. can someone fill the rest of this in lol .... god thats embarassing.

    And no, i have never gambled online in my life, and only have only been to a casino twice. Late night poker, however is a different matter. :naughty:

    Bets for the underdog are pretty much the opposite. If you were to bet $100 on Penn and he won your payout would then be $280 (original bet+180 handicap). That is how you bet less but get a bigger return :) You were right about the other one though.

    odds for Aoki went down a lot over the night...started at around +275 at pinnacle...went down to +225

    same at BOF...started at +290...now at +250...still a pretty good bet to make though IMO
