Boxing Odds Legend
Boxing may have slumped in recent years, but betting on boxing remains a favorite with Vegas and online bettors. There is no point spread in boxing, so wagering typically involves a moneyline. You bet on one boxer to win and he (she) will have either a negative value (-500 indicates the favorite) or a positive value indicating underdog (+300) status.
If we envision the number 100 sitting in the middle of these two values, it helps explain boxing moneyline odds. Betting on that -500 favorite means you would wager $50 in order to win $10. On the underdog, you would risk $10 and win $30. Boxing odds also include over-under rounds (will the fight end before or after the 11th round?) are usually available closer to fight night.
