Some of the biggest upsets in sports history happened in the boxing ring. Buster Douglas over Mike Tyson, Muhammad Ali over George Foreman – all huge longshots who paid off bigtime. That tradition continues today with boxing odds that challenge fight fans and require diligence on the part of oddsmakers to set sharp lines.
While betting on boxing is not as popular as in years past, the big fights still generate tons of hype and attractive boxing odds. Like MMA, you typically bet boxing using a moneyline (favorite is -300 means $300 wager returns a $100 profit, while underdog of +240 means a $100 stake on the dog will return a $240 profit).
So when Floyd Mayweather jr decides to fight, it’s a big deal and odds on how many rounds the fight will last and other fun boxing props will go up. Ditto when a superstar like Manny Pacquiao enters the ring. Not all sportsbooks cover the sport, but ones that do offer tons of variety. Check out the best boxing odds here at OddsShark.com.
