This page shows odds for moneyline bets. These are stakes where you pick the fighter you think will win the battle.
Boxing chances generally look something like this: Apollo Creed -200
Rocky Balboa +180
This means that Creed is the favorite and Balboa is the underdog. Favorites always have a minus sign (-) before their chances and underdogs have the plus sign (+). In this case if you had $300 to play with, you could throw it all on Creed and when he wins, you would get a payout of $450 — your own $300 is returned, plus your winnings of $150.
On the other hand, if you had faith in Rocky and think he’s likely to win, a $300 bet would net you a payout of $840 — you’d get your original $300 back, plus your winnings of $540.
