Like baseball and hockey, the money line is used to display the odds of winning in boxing and MMA.
The minus (-) on the electronic wagering display and wagering sheets indicates the favorite. The plus (+) indicates the underdog.
|9:00 PM||2001||MANNY PACQUIAO||+130|
In this example, Floyd Mayweather is favored and the player must lay $150 to win $100 or $15 to win $10. The player would wager $100 to win $130 or $10 to win $13 on Manny Pacquiao. In the event of a draw, wagers on who will win the fight are refunded.
On some fights, players have the option of betting whether the fight will go a specified distance.
|2003||WILL GO 12 FULL ROUNDS||+140|
|2004||WON’T GO 12 FULL ROUNDS||-160|
In this example, the player would wager $140 to win $100 or $14 to win $10 that the duration of the fight will be more or less than 12 rounds. In rounds propositions, it does not matter which fighter wins.
For major fights, a broad range of wagers and proposition may be offered, such as how a fighter will win (KO or decision), round propositions and odds on picking the round in which the fight will end.
