Elite XC odds for the "Unfinished Business" event from the Stockton Arena in Stockton, Calif., on July 26 are out.

Just a reminder that the sportsbook is always available for those fans who like to make fights nights that much more interesting.

It’s just cold hard numbers … and some possible big profits:

"Ruthless" Robbie Lawler -210 BET NOW
Scott "Hands of Steel" Smith +170 BET NOW
Jake Shields -340 BET NOW
Nick "The Goat" Thompson +260 BET NOW
Nick Diaz -600 BET NOW
Thomas "Wildman" Denny +400 BET NOW
Shayna Baszler -200 BET NOW
Cristiane Cyborg +160 BET NOW
Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva -575 BET NOW
Justin Eilers +375 BET NOW
Justin Eilers +375 BET NOW
Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante -500 BET NOW
Travis Galbraith +350 BET NOW
Wilson Reis -135 BET NOW
Bryan Caraway +105 BET NOW

At first look -- and disclaimer here that I am no betting expert -- Wilson Reis at -135 looks like a fantastic play. He is an absolute stud. That's not taking anything away from Bryan Caraway because his record (9-2) indicates that he is a very good fighter. But Reis is huge for 145 pounds and he's lightning quick with a top notch submission game.

In my opinion, he's nearly a lock to win ... and certainly worth a bet at almost even money.

In addition, I like Robbie Lawler to win the rematch with Smith I know the first fight was super close, but I'm not sure if Lawler was ever in danger of being finished -- I can't say the same for Scott Smith.

At a little over 2 to 1 a bet on Lawler might be worth it ... literally.

Nick Thompson also has a much better chance against Jake Shields than the +260 the oddsmakers are giving him. I'm not saying he's going to win, but at that price, he's worth some consideration because the value is there.

If you're not familiar with the plus and minus odds system here's basically how it works:

The plus sign means that fighter is the underdog and the minus sign is for the favorite. It's a pretty simple system. It's easiest to use a base scale of $100. Meaning, if a fighter is listed at +150 you would win $150 dollars on a $100 bet. If a fighter is listed at -150 you would have to bet $150 in order to win $100. Obviously you don't have to bet in $100 increments.

It's just an easy way to evaluate the lines. Good luck, gambling degenerates maniacs.
