Q. How do I know how much I will win from my bet?
Odds are a sportsbook’s tool for indicating the probability of an outcome. In simple terms, the higher the odds, the less chance your bet has of winning, but the bigger the payout will be if it does. The lower odds, the stronger chance your bet has of winning, but the lower the payout will be. To know the exactly what the payout will be, just put the odds of your wager along with the bet amount into our Bet Basics odds calculator.
Q. What are American Odds?
American odds, (also sometimes called ‘moneyline’ odds) are the main odds type used by sportsbooks in the United States. The positive (+) and negative (-) signs displayed with American odds are a means of representing the underdog and the favorite, respectively. The negative sign corresponds to the amount a bettor needs to wager in order to turn a $100 profit, while the positive sign corresponds to the potential profit a bettor can make by wagering $100.
Q. What are Fractional Odds?
Fractional odds are the most popular odds format in the UK and Ireland and involve the sportsbook representing the probability of betting outcomes as fractions. To calculate your profit using fractional odds, all you have to do is multiply the fraction by the amount wagered.
Q. What are Decimal Odds?
In most other regions around the world, decimal odds are the format of choice for bookmakers and gamblers alike. It’s incredibly straightforward to calculate your winning using decimal odds as all you have to do is multiply the amount wagered by the odds. There’s no need to account for your original stake as it’s calculated into your winnings if your bet is a successful one.
