What Does ‘Minus’ Mean in Betting?


The minus symbol (-) is used to indicate the favorite in a particular matchup. It is also used to indicate the amount of money that must be wagered to win $100.

Generally, the lower the number (for example -1200 being lower than -900); the less you will win because of the heavy favorite.
