Definition of the term Visiting Underdog - Kings Sports Betting DictionaryLet's look at an example - let's say that the Cincinnati Bengals are travelling to play the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football.

Here are the odds:

Cincinnati Bengals, +11, -110
Denver Broncos, -11, -110

According to these odds, the Bengals are the "visiting underdogs", as they will be playing away from home AND be underdogs to win.

The straight up odds for the game might look something like this:

Cincinnati Bengals, +340
Denver Broncos, -400

So, according to these odds, a successful $100 wager on the Bengals would yield a total profit of $340, while a successful $400 wager on the Broncos would return a total profit of $100.

As you can see by this odds, the Bengals are the "visiting underdogs".
