“Learning how to read boxing odds is half of the battle. Another half is sitting back and watching the struggle to see if you’re in line to win your bet.

Boxing Odds Explained
This page reveals odds for moneyline bets. These are bets in which you select the fighter you believe will win the fight.

Boxing odds look something

Apollo Creed -200

Rocky Balboa +180

This means that Creed is your favorite and Balboa is the underdog. Favorites 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, then you’d get a payout of \$450 — your \$300 is returned, and 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 would get your initial \$300 back, along with your winnings of \$540.
