  1. P(M) prior model probabilities, P(M|data) the updated probabilities after the data, BFM Bayes Factor of model, reflects the degree to which the data have changed the prior odds, BF10 odds for H1 (1/BF10 odds for null hypothesis). BF10 range 0.1–0.33 is considered moderate odds favoring the null hypothesis; 0.033–0.1 considered strong; below 0.033 is considered very strong odds [44]
