Boxing bet odds on a competitive fight will have each fighter at odds of -120 or even money. A big favorite in boxing betting odds will oftentimes have fighters at 5-1 or more.
This means that the oddsmaker thinks the favored fighter is a very big favorite. You will also see boxing bet odds of more than that. It is not uncommon to see odds of 10-1 or more on a big favorite in boxing bet odds. There have even been occasions in boxing betting where a fighter was 30-1 or 40-1 as a favorite. Usually sportsbooks will only put up boxing lines on fights where the favorite is 15-1 or less.
In boxing you will see a money line similar to what you see in hockey or baseball. The favored fighter is minus money for a boxing bet while the underdog is plus money in boxing betting. It might have Boxer A at -200 and Boxer B at +160. This means that you would have to wager $200 on Boxer A (the favorite) to win $100 in the boxing bet. You would have to bet $100 on Boxer B (the underdog) to win $160. Winning would get you back your risk money plus the money you won. So the favorite would return you $300 (your $200 plus the $100) while the dog would get you $260 back ($160 won plus your $100).
You may see different boxing betting odds on a fight but they will be fairly similar at sportsbooks. You should also know that as you make a boxing bet you will need to monitor the lines. They will change just as they do in other sports. Professionals place a boxing bet just as they do in other sports.
Another boxing bet option is called a proposition bet. These boxing bet wagers are made on how a fight is won (knockout or decision). You may also have boxing bet proposition wagers on how long a fight will last (over or under a set number of rounds). You may also see the draw option. These are all great boxing betting choices to consider.
