What are betting odds?

For those new to online sportsbooks or even betting in general, betting odds can look extremely daunting. As a new player, your first port of call should be learning how betting odds work. This is a critical element in determining what the best bet you can place for an event is. Odds allow you to understand the likelihood of an event occurring and what you could potentially win by placing a bet on something to happen. For novices, betting odds may appear confusing at first, so we recommend reading up on odds formats and selecting the one that you'll stick with for your betting experience.

The three formats that you can choose from regarding selecting your odds format are fractional, decimal and American. Ultimately, the most popular format in the United Kingdom is Fractional odds, as it makes it significantly easier to see the difference between standard odds and enhanced odds, this also helps in making a quick decision for in-play betting. Fractional odds appear as such, 1/10, in this indication, the first number shows how much you would receive on top of your stake if you were to place a bet of the second number. So, in this instance, if you were to place a bet of £10 on this event, you would receive £11 in total, your £10 stake returned and then the £1 profit you would make off the bet. These odds imply that the chances of the bet coming off are incredibly likely, so you would perhaps find these bets in football betting when a team is two or three goals ahead, rather than in horse racing betting where races are much harder to predict.

Decimal odds on the other hand are more common in Europe, so you'll often find you'll have to change your odds format to this if you wish to use it on a UK betting site. Decimal odds are shown as one number, which is the amount that would be returned based on a £1 bet. For example, if you're looking at Premier League betting and your odds are listed as 20, this indicates that the bet you're placing would receive £19 profit as well as your £1 stake. For decimal stakes, anything below 2 is a favourite bet and 2 is deemed as an even money bet, so any bet which isn't favoured will be valued as a total over 2.

American Odds (also known as money line odds) are odds that are only popular in certain areas of the United States, so they aren't recommended for players in the UK or Europe. In this regard, the odds for favourites will be found with the minus sign and indicate the value you would need to stake to win £100. Alternatively, if you're looking to back the underdog, these odds will be accompanied by a plus sign and will be an indicator of what you would win for every £100 staked in a straight-up bet.

The best online betting markets

Betting markets describe the wide number of ways in which you can place a bet.

Online Betting FAQ

What Is Betting?

Betting is defined as the action of wagering money on the outcome of an event. With sports betting this is, of course, specific to sporting events such as a football match or a horse race. In order to win a bet, the outcome that you have bet on would need to happen and thus you would be paid out as a winner. With online betting, each bet is placed via a connection to the internet and is done so via a registered bookmaker such as LeoVegas.

How Do Betting Odds Work?

Odds are set by the probability of an outcome happening with all factors considered. The higher the odds, the less likely it is to happen. Here at LeoVegas, we provide three different ways to list odds:
Fractional: Written with a /, they are set as the ratio of the amount you can win compared to the stake. Example: odds of 6/1 would see returns of £6 if £1 was wagered.
Decimal: Written with a decimal point, they represent the amount you can win for every £1 wagered. An easy formula to remember is Your Stake x Odds = Payout. Example: odds of 10.0 would see returns of £20 with a £2 stake.
American: Written with either a + (favourite) or - (underdog), they indicate how much you would win for every £100 wagered (+) or how much you need to wager to win £100 (-). Example: odds of -110 would see returns of £9.55 with a £5 stake.

What Is A Betting Market?

A betting market is a specific type of bet on a selected event. There will be a range of different betting markets per event, such as Full-Time Result in a football match or Total Sets in a game of tennis. The number of markets available will depend on the sport and event in question.

What Does Each Way Mean In Betting?

Often found with horse racing markets but can also appear in other sports, Each Way is a bet that is placed with two equal wagers. One of the wagers backs the participant to win the event and the other backs it to finish in the places, which can vary but is often the first three.

What Does Draw No Bet Mean?

Draw No Bet means that if you have placed a bet on a participant to win and the event goes on to be a draw, your stake will be returned in full. If the participant wins, the bet wins and if they lose then the bet loses.

What are the best sports for betting?

The best sports for betting tend to be a niche sport for yourself. If you're a major fan of American sports, you'll likely have an edge for NFL betting or NBA betting that many fans simply won't have. If you're going for a more generic bet on popular sports such as a win outright bet on the Premier League, you'll likely have the same knowledge as many others betting on the sport. The more knowledge you have on a sport that others won't have, the better chances you have of landing high-profit wins.
