I am a bit confused as I see that some pages have underscores and others have dashes in their URL but which one is then better to use I mean which one is best for SEO?

Google strips underscore and combines all words separated by it into one word.
Dashes are used by Google to separate words.

"How_to_rank_high_on_Google" will be indexed as one word "HowtorankhighonGoogle"
"How-to-rank-high-on-Google" will be indexed as one keyword or separate keywords "How to rank high on Google"

From SEO prospective dashes is the one you should go with.
