    up the odds

    Hi,

    But recently, researchers have found that a number of lifestyle factors up the odds of getting type 2 diabetes.

    What does "up the odds" mean?

    Does it mean "not definitely happen"?

    Thanks a lot

    Re: up the odds

    "up the odds" = "increases the odds"
