Boxing Odds Explained
This page shows chances for bets. These are stakes in which you pick the fighter you think will win the battle.
Boxing chances generally appear something
Apollo Creed -200
Rocky Balboa +180
This means that Creed is the preferred and Balboa is the underdog. Favorites have a minus sign (-) until their odds and underdogs have the plus sign (+). In this case if you had $300 to play with, you can throw it all on Creed and if he wins, you’d get a payout of $450 — your own $300 is returned, plus your winnings of $150.
On the flip side, if you had faith in Rocky and think he is going to win, a $300 bet would net you a payout of $840 — you’d get your original $300 back, plus your winnings of $540.
