Getting Into the Boxing Odds
Boxing betting odds are easy to understand once you know what you are looking for. The sport of boxing have pretty similar betting dynamics to some major team sports wagers. All you need to do is figure out which fighter is going to be able to win the fight at its most simplistic terms. There is no point spread in the boxing world on a typical bet. They could provide one on total strikes landed but that is rare to see and is a prop bet that is all the way down the line.
How to read Boxing Odds
Reading boxing betting odds is not too difficult to comprehend as there are a few ways to go. One of the things is deciding how to win. A prop bet can be placed on some sportsbooks to decide how the fight will end (knockout, total knockout, decision, etc) and each will have their own special odds. You can also wager on the over or under of how many rounds that fight will last. There is a great number of things to understand but you can get into the simplicity of understanding the total bet is how many rounds the fight will end and to bet on an individual fighter with the favorite shown by a minus sign and the underdog being represented by a plus sign.
Boxing Betting Example
Apollo Creed -120
Rocky Balboa +100
In this example, Apollo Creed is considered the favorite to win the fight and in order to win $100, you would need to bet $120. If you believed that Rocky Balboa would win the fight as the underdog and placed that same $100 wager, you would win $100 if Balboa were to win the fight.Follow us on Twitter
