This page shows odds for bets. These are bets where you pick the fighter you believe will win the battle.
Boxing odds generally look something like this: Apollo Creed -200
Rocky Balboa +180
This usually means that Creed is the favorite and Balboa is the underdog. Favorites always have a minus sign (-) until their odds and underdogs have the plus sign (+). In this case if you had $300 to play , you can throw all of it on Creed and when he wins, then you would find 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’s going to win, a $300 bet would net you a payout of $840 — you’d get your original $300 back, along with your winnings of $540.
