American Odds are very simple. They are based on $100 value and have main 2 types:
You either risk $100 to win some amount (underdog) or you risk the amount to win $100 (favorite).
These odd are mostly used in the websites that provide lines for US sports and/or to US sports bettors.
These are also called moneyline odds.
- In this case the odds come with a ‘-‘ minus sign.
- You risk some amount to win $100.
- The higher the absolute value of the odds the higer is the probabilty to win, meaning ‘-125 favorite’ has better chances to win than ‘-450 favorite’.
'Eagles -125' means you bet $125 and you get profit of $100.
- In this case the odds come with a ‘+’ plus sign.
- You risk $100 to win the amount.
- The higher the value of the odds the lower is is the probabilty to win, meaning ‘+180 underdog’ has better chanes to win than ‘+450 underdog’.
'Texans +220' means you bet $100 and you get profit of $220.
Fractional Odds, also known as UK odds, are mostly used in the UK. Fractional odds are simple to calculate.
These odds are in a format of a fraction (3/4).
The denominator (4) is the amount you wager and the numerator (3) is the profit you gain from that.
If we base it on the $100 value, in this example of 3/4 – you wager $400 (4 lots of $100) and gain $300 (3 lots of $100) profit.
'Eagles 4/5' means if you bet $100 you get profit of $80 ($100 * 4/5)
'Texans 6/5' means if you bet $100 you get profit of $120 ($100 * 6/5)
Decimal odds, or European odds, are a bit different from the American and fractional odds. But they are simple as well, though it takes two steps to calculate the profit.
Here’s the main difference: the payout of decimal odds includes the stake in it.
Meaning that if the odds are 3.2 and you wager $100, you get $320 (3.2 * $100), then you subtract the stake and get the profit $220 ($320 – $100).
Or other way around, you subtract 1 from the odds 3.2 – 1 = 2.2 and muptiply it by the stake 2.2 * $100 = $220.
In decimal odds, the favorites are always smaller and the smaller the value, the higher the probabilty to win and the lower the profit.
'Eagles 1.8' means - you bet $100 - payout $180 - profit $80
'Texans 3.2' means - you bet $100 - payout $320 - profit $220
