It doesn’t matter whether you prefer to bet on moneyline boxing odds, round betting or even the method of victory, you will usually find boxing betting lines in positive and negative numbers.
Wondering how boxing odds work in real terms? Let’s use the following example of an imaginary fight, using the following moneyline:
Mike Tyson -150
Tyson Fury +200
Mike Tyson is the pre-fight favorite with the bookmakers because his boxing odds are in negative format. The underdog’s numbers are always in positive format.
Let’s start by working out Tyson Fury’s pre-fight odds. At a price of +200, if you were to wager $100 on Fury to win against Mike Tyson, you would win $200 plus your $100 stake if this outcome occurred.
With negative boxing odds, Mike Tyson’s odds of -150 show how much is needed to win $100. Therefore, you must wager $150 to win $100, plus your $150 stake, if Tyson defeated Fury.
You don’t need to worry how boxing odds work to calculate your potential winnings.

Now that you are more familiar with how to read boxing odds, now is the perfect opportunity to introduce you to the most popular boxing betting lines open to bettors pre-fight:
This is the most popular type of boxing betting market, allowing you to play outright bets on the winner of an upcoming fight. The moneyline in boxing odds will display odds on the favorite, underdog and the tie. The latter event only occurs when the fight goes to a points decision and the judges are split.
On occasion, some sportsbooks will run futures boxing odds on fights that have been speculated by the media. These odds are available even if they fight has not been officially declared and scheduled. Although this might sound strange, it’s a great opportunity to find value boxing odds before sportsbook traders have had time to fully analyze the potential match-up. If the fight never occurs, your stake will be voided and refunded to your betting account.
• Prop bets
If you prefer to spice up your boxing betting, you could look to some of the more ‘exotic’ prop bets available. These prop bets are a great opportunity to demonstrate your boxing knowledge and find value boxing odds from the leading US sportsbooks. You might wish to bet on which round a fight will be stopped or the method of victory, including KOs, TKOs, disqualifications, and points decisions. Draw No Bet markets are also popular, allowing you to bet on a winner without the draw in play. If the fight does end in a draw, your bet is voided, and your stake is refunded.
Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s last professional boxing fight was against Conor McGregor on August 24, 2017 in Las Vegas. The duo were fighting for the WBC Money Belt, introduced exclusively for this bout. Many still consider this fight as an exhibition, given that McGregor had never boxed professionally prior to this fight. Mayweather’s last fight against a serious opponent was WBA interim champion Andre Berto in September 2015.
Mayweather has “retired” on three occasions from professional boxing but has dabbled with exhibitions more recently in his retirement. If Mayweather Jr. announces another professional fight, you can be sure of getting the best available Floyd Mayweather odds right here at OddsChecker.

At the time of writing, more than two dozen US states have moved to legalize sports wagering, including the coverage of boxing betting odds. Some states have only permitted retail sports betting, meaning you can only place wagers on boxing betting lines or live boxing odds in a land-based sportsbook. However, the general feeling is that the US is gradually welcoming regulated sports betting once again as a valuable source of state revenue.
Although Floyd Mayweather has retired from professional boxing, the world’s best pound-for-pound boxer continues to fight on the exhibition stage. Mayweather has locked horns with Japanese kickboxer Tenshin Nasukawa, as well as YouTube personality Logan Paul. If any future exhibition fights are scheduled for Floyd Mayweather, you can be sure of finding the latest Floyd Mayweather odds right here at OddsChecker.
You might be surprised to find that the Floyd Mayweather odds pre-fight against Conor McGregor drifted rather than being backed in by boxing fans. During the build-up, Mayweather’s moneyline odds opened at -2250 before settling at -350 before the bout. McGregor’s marketing machine certainly worked in sowing a seed of doubt in the minds of boxing bettors, but Mayweather was always in control as he strolled to victory number 50 with a tenth-round knockout.
