How to Read Olympics Odds

Depending which online sportsbook you decide on, Beijing Olympics betting odds may look different from site to site. The three Olympic odds you need to understand how to read are American moneylines, British fractional and European decimal.

American Odds

On the plus-minus side

American odds are often referred to as the moneyline. Favorites are typically distinguished with a minus symbol (-) before the odds, while underdogs are typically noted with a plus symbol (+) prefix.

For example, when looking at the odds for which country will win the gold medals, Norway is -400. This means an $400 wager would be required to win $100 should Norway capture the most top spots on the podium. United States at +1400 means a $100 wager would cash in $1400 should the U.S. finish with the most gold medals.

British Fractional Odds

Slash to cash

Fractional odds are also known as British odds or even traditional odds. They are typically written with a slash (/) or hypen (-) featured.

For example, Germany’s odds to win the most gold medals are 6/1 or 6-1. This means a better backing the Brits would win $6 for every $1 wager should that country finish with the most golds.

Some other fractional odds may look a bit odd, like 10/11 or 9/5. In this case, the better would win $10 for every $11 wagered or win $9 for every $5 wagered, respectively.

European Decimal Odds

Get to the point

Also known as continental odds, decimal odds are quite popular across Europe and several other countries around the globe. Decimal odds are calculated by taking the stake multiplied by the odds.

For example, the Norway’s -400 moneyline American odds, would be 1.25 in decimal odds. So, you take the 1.25 x $100 wager to get a potential return of $125.00 on a $100 bet. In the Great Britain example, their decimal odds would be 7.0
