"round robin" (RR) = selecting three or more outcomes and parlaying each one with the others in the size of the parlays you specify. i.e. if you do a four-team RR and select groupings of "2", there will be 6 individual parlays: A+B A+C A+D B+C B+D C+D Betting Odds: American Odds (+/-) +odds are for the underdog +xxx = the amount of money you will win if your selection wins on a bet of $100. (plus your stake back) i.e. You bet $100 on a +200 underdog. If it loses, you lose $100. If it wins, you win $200 (plus your $100 back). -odds are for the favorite -xxx = the amount of money you must bet in order to win $100. (plus your stake back) i.e. You bet $300 on a -300 underdog. If it loses, you lose $300. If it wins, you win $100 (plus your $300 back) European Odds (decimal) Anything under 2.00 = favorite Anything 2.00 or above = underdog. Simply multiple your stake by the decimal odds to determine the payout. i.e. You bet $100 on a 2.50 underdog. If it loses, you lose $100. If it wins, you win $250. (which is really "winning" $150 plus your $100 stake returned). i.e. You bet $400 on a 1.50 favorite. If it loses, you lose $400. If it wins, you win $600. (which is really "winning" $200 plus your $400 stake returned) Specific outcome bets: Moneyline (ML) = fighter wins the match outright DEC = fighter wins via decision (judges cards) KO = fighter wins via knockout SUB = fighter wins via submission ITD = fighter wins via ko/dq/sub NSC = fighter wins with no scorecards ( +3.5 = fighter wins in the distance OR loses within 3.5 points of his opponents totals. i.e. unanimous 29-28 = 3 point total differential -3.5 = fighter wins in the distance OR wins by greater than 3.5 point differential (see above) Round-Specific bets = fighter wins in the designated round Over/Under (O/U) = A wager on the length of the fight. i.e. O2.5 means the fight must go at least 2 minutes and 31 seconds into the 3rd round.
