A competitor not favored to win by neutral observers. while dogfighting is now widely banned, people have long compared boxing matches etc to dogfights. The projected winner is the “favorite”, and the opponent of the favorite is therefore the “underdog”.

e.g. In Women’s World Cup football, Germany was the favorite and Japan was an underdog.
