What do these numbers mean? A positive number (+) represents the amount of money you could win on a $100 bet — so +1000 for Stephen Colbert means if you wager $100 and he wins, you get paid out $1,000. Since Colbert is an underdog (not our personal view, but this ain’t about us), you stand to win more on your bet.

A negative number (-) represents how much you’d have to bet to win $100 — so -150 for Jimmy Fallon means you’d have to wager $150 to win $100. Since Fallon is the favorite to win, your bet isn’t much of a risk so you don’t stand to win as much on your bet.

Still not clear on how this works? Leave us a comment below and we’ll straighten you out.
