Boxing chances look something

Apollo Creed -200

Rocky Balboa +180

This means that Creed is your preferred and Balboa is the underdog. Favorites always have a minus sign (-) until their chances and underdogs have the plus sign (+). In this case if you had \$300 to play , you can throw it all on Creed and when he wins, you’d find a payout of \$450 — your \$300 is returned, plus your winnings of \$150.

On the other hand, if you had faith in Rocky and think he’s 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.
