Sport Betting: Betting Odds

Odds are simply a reflection of the chance or probability of a certain outcome in an event. In any event, every outcome has a chance or likelihood of taking place. Odds are simply an interpretation of those chances. The bookmakers form odds or prices to reflect those chances.

  • Betting odds tell you how likely an event is to happen
  • They also tell you how much money you will win 

The first thing you need to understand is what basic betting odds mean.Let’s take odds of 2/1. This means that you need to bet one unit to win two back. Odds of 4/1 means that you bet one unit to win four back. Then you have odds-on prices such as 1/2. In this scenario, you would need to bet two units to win one back.

The longer odds of 2/1 have less of a chance of winning, while the 1/2 odds-on price is more likely to happen but you would have to risk twice as much to get the same return as if the longer price won.
