What Do Betting Odds Mean?

If you’re new to sportsbook betting or playing online casino games, your first step should be to learn how betting odds work. This is critically important because having an understanding of how odds work allows you to understand the likelihood of an event happening, and what any potential winnings may be. As a novice, betting odds might seem confusing, but this handy guide is designed to explain things to you as simply as possible.

Understanding Probability

To understand betting odds, you must first understand probability. At its most basic level, the concept of gambling allows you to predict the outcome of a certain event (for example, the final score in a football match, or where the ball will land on a roulette table). If your prediction proves correct, you win money. Betting odds essentially present how likely an event is to happen in an easily understandable manner.

In the UK, the most common way that betting odds are displayed is as fractional odds (for example, 4/7). However, users also have the ability to view betting odds as a decimal or in an American format.

Calculating Probability With Betting Odds

When you’re getting involved with online betting, you’ll often see numbers separated by a trailing slash (for example, 10/1). From these odds, you can calculate how likely an event has been deemed to happen with a simple calculation. Let’s throw a little algebra into the equation. Let’s replace the numbers 10/1 with A/B.

Now for the equation: the probability of an event occurring = B / (A+B). This means that:

• Odds of 9/1 can be calculated at 1 / (9+1) = 0.10. This means there is around a 10% chance that an event will happen.

• Odds of 4/1 can be calculated at 1 / (4+1) = 0.20. This means there is around a 20% chance that an event will happen.

• Odds of evens (1/1) can be calculated at 1 / (1+1) = 0.50. This means there is around a 50% chance that an event will happen.

• Odds of 1/4 can be calculated at 4 / (4+1) = 0.80. This means there is around an 80% chance that an event will happen.

Understanding how odds represent the likelihood of an event happening can give you a much more competitive edge when placing a bet, so it’s worthwhile memorising this simple equation.

Calculating Potential Winnings With Fractional Betting Odds

As well as allowing you to predict the likelihood of an event occurring, betting odds also allow you to calculate how much money you will make if your bet is a winning one. We’ll use the same examples as before (for example, 10/1 becomes A/B). Put simply, for every value of B that you stake as a bet, you will win A, plus have your initial stake returned.

• 9/1: for every £1 you bet, you win £9

• 4/1: for every £1 you bet, you win £4

• 1/1: for every £1 you bet, you win £1

• 1/4: for every £4 you bet, you win £1

Which Is Best: Decimal Odds Or Fractional Odds?

In truth, the use of decimal vs fractional odds comes down to personal preference. There seems to be an emerging trend towards decimal odds, with many sports and casino fans claiming they are easier to understand. Some say this is because fractional odds merely represent winnings, without including the returned stake.

Calculating Winnings With Decimal Odds

It’s much easier to calculate winnings from decimal odds. To do so, simply use the calculation of winnings = (odds x stake) - stake. Let’s illustrate this with the following examples, based on a £10 stake:

• Decimal odds of 9.0 can be calculated as (9.0 x £10) - £10 = £80 winnings.

• Decimal odds of 4.0 can be calculated as (4.0 x £10) - £10 = £30 winnings.

• Decimal odds of 2.5 can be calculated as (2.5 x £10) - £10 = £15 winnings.

• Decimal odds of 1.25 can be calculated as (1.25 x £10) - £10 = £2.50 winnings.

Understanding Betting Odds - In Summary

Betting odds represent the probability of an event happening. This enables you to work out how much money you will win if you place a winning bet. The length of the odds reflects how likely an event is to happen. If there’s a 50/50 chance of an event happening, we will offer odds of ‘evens’ or 1/1. Events with an outside chance will have longer odds (for example, a team which is currently languishing in the relegation zone of the Premier League might have odds of 1000/1 to win the title at the end of the season, therefore we’d be sure not to include them in our Premier League betting tips!

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.
