Money Line Betting:

Check out the zewkey Money Line Calculator for the easist way to determine your wager amounts.

"Moneyline refers to odds on the straight-up outcome of a game with no consideration to a point spread.. There are two possibilities, the figure quote can be either positive or negative.

Positive figures:

If the figure quoted is positive, the odds are quoting how much money will be won on a $100 wager (this is done if the odds are better than even). Even odds are quoted as $100 . Fractional odds of 4/1 would be quoted as $400, while fractional odds of 1/4 could not be quoted as a positive figure.

Negative figures:

If the figure quoted is negative, then the moneyline odds are quoting how much money must be wagered to win $100 (this is done if the odds are worse than even). Even odds are quoted as -$100. Fractional odds of 1/4 would be quoted as -$400, however fractional odds of 4/1 could not be quoted as a negative figure. " -source: wikipedia

You may take advantage of money lines by taking a couple simple things into consideration when placing your bet:

  • Money lines either express the wager amount necessary to win $100 or the amount won by wagering $100, depending on whether or not the line is expressed as a negative or a positive, respectfully.

  • When the line is -110 for both fighters, it is called a standard line, meaning that there is no favorite in the fight. As the line moves, or breaks, from -110, one fighter’s line will become more expensive and the other will become cheaper. This is when you make your move!

  • If you like a fighter to win and you see his line starting to get more expensive, place your bet. If your fighter wins, you will have paid less to win more.

  • If the money line is becoming cheaper on the fighter you like, wait it out as your win amount will be higher for the same amount wagered.

Just keep in mind: Although money lines can give you the highest win percentage when done right, one loss on a heavily favored fighter that seemed like a lock can set you back a few wins. In sports gambling, as in life, there are no guarantees!
