Betiton™’s Guide to Sports Betting Odds

Odds are numbers or combinations of numbers that tell punters two things: 1) the likelihood of the event actually happening and 2) how much money they’ll win if the wager happens to be correct. This is exactly why they’re so important.

Moreover, there are 3 ways of representing them: decimal, fractional, and American. Each one of these represent the same 2 things but in different ways. Essentially, then, choosing a format is merely a matter of preference.

Since odds are a representation of the chance of success a wager has, a bookmaker will take many factors into account to provide the most accurate ones possible. These include team composition, player strength, previous performances, etc.

How to Read the Various Sports Betting Odd Formats

Different formats are most popular in different parts of the world. The decimal format is mostly used in continental Europe. However, it’s also commonly used in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. The fractional format is mainly used by bookmakers in the UK and in Ireland. Finally, the American format is called that because it’s mainly used in the USA.

Decimal Format

The decimal format uses decimal numbers, like 2.84, to indicate the probability and payouts. The lowest possible decimal odds is 1, which means that the chance of success is 100%. Going higher than 1 means that the likelihood starts to drop.

Whilst this is often cited as being the easiest format to understand, there are still a couple of equations that you’d need to use to truly understand it. The first of which is to understand the likelihood of your wager winning. To do this, simply divide 100 by the odds you’re presented. So, let us take a look at an example:

  • 100 ÷ 2.84 = 35.2

So, the chances of success are 35.2%. On the other hand, there’s an equation that you can use to figure out what the payout of the wager is: simply multiply your stake by the presented odds, then subtract your original stake from the result.

That sounds awfully complex but it’s actually much easier than you might think. In fact, let’s take a look at an example: imagine you’re betting $20 on 2.84:

  • 20 × 2.84 = 56.8
  • 56.8 − 20 = 36.8

Therefore, your total payout would be $56.8 but the profit is $36.8.

Fractional Format

The fractional format uses fractions to represent its values. This format might seem complicated to understand but there are actually two tricks that make reading this format a breeze. Therefore, it’s good to keep these tricks in mind.

The first trick can be used to understand if the odds are high or low. The trick is to look at the numbers of the fraction: if the right number is higher then the odds are low (over 50%); if the left is higher, then chances are that they’re high (under 50%).

The second trick also involves looking at the numbers but it’s used to figure out how much the wager pays out. If you take the right number to mean your stake and the left number to mean the return, you’ll easily calculate the payouts.

So, imagine you’re considering which wagers to back, and the one that catches your eye offers odds of 2/9. This means that for every $9 you stake, you’ll get $2 on top of it. Furthermore, this means that your wager has a good chance of success.

How to Use Tips In Your Favour

When deciding on who to wager on, tips can help you out. These are suggestions on which team to back, which wagers to play, how much you should stake, which sites you should play at, and so on. It’s easy, then, to see why they’re useful.

Tips are given by tipsters, sports experts that spend hours analysing various factors to determine which contenders stand the best chances of winning. These factors are, funnily enough, the same factors that bookmakers use to calculate the odds.

Furthermore, there are two kinds of tipsters: those who offer tips for free, and those who give them in exchange for payment. However, despite all this, tips should be considered more as a starting point for your own research.

Finding Tips: Easier Than You Think

Simply use your favourite search engine to look tips up, and voilà! On the other hand, the best tips we can give you is to keep healthy; to make sure to make time for important things in your life; and to stick to a gambling budget of money you can afford to lose.

Sports Betting Bonuses to Boost Your Fun

Whilst spoiling our players for choice by offering them more betting options than they could wager on is all well and good, it’s still not enough to give them the best sports betting experience possible and the one that they deserve.

We have plenty of promotions on offer, but the one that should concern our sports bettors from New Zealand is our sports betting welcome bonus. New players can look forward to a nice extra bet when placing their first wager on our online sportsbook.

The way it works is easy: when players stake at least $15 on our sportsbook, we’ll give them a $10 extra bet to use on any of our sports markets. So, whether you want to wager on horse races, football, or whatever, the extra bet applies all the same.

However, the welcome bonus is subject to a number of conditions. Players would do well to read up on these in our T&Cs and bonus policy; in fact, we highly encourage for players to do so. Both of these can be found at the bottom of each one of our pages.

How to Gamble in Moderation

Responsible gaming is taken very seriously at Betiton™. When you have an account with us you have the ability to place a deposit limit for a day, week, or month. This helps you keep how much you spend on our platform in check.

The way the deposit limits work is as follows: when you reach the deposit limit that you have set, it won’t be possible to deposit more money until the time frame has passed. Furthermore, you also have the option of banning yourself from your account.

This can be for any period of time that you prefer, usually 1, 3, or 6 months. However, if there comes a stage in your life where you believe that you are becoming severely addicted to gambling, then you can ban yourself from your account permanently.

If you opt for this, then we’ll close your account and give you back any money that was in it. If you would like to undergo an exclusion period, then you need to get in touch with one of our customer support agents.

We have other responsible gaming measures, including a cool-off period that is similar to the self-exclusion measure but isn’t quite as severe. In fact, players would still be able to use certain aspects of our site whilst on a cool-off period.

We also provide players with information about the symptoms of problem gaming and with responsible gaming tips. Finally, underage gaming is strictly forbidden on our site. This refers to anyone gambling under the age of 18.

We expect all parents on our site to prevent their minors from being expected to gambling. We assist them by providing them with tips and software against underage gaming. There are severe consequences for those that fail to prevent underage gambling.

Sports Betting FAQs

What does the point spread mean?

The point spread is a range of points that is “imposed” between two teams. The spread favours the underdog whilst giving a disadvantage to the favourite. This evens the playing field whilst also giving much better odds. Wagers on the favourite win if the favourite wins the game with more points than the spread. Wagers on the underdog win if the underdog either wins the game outright or if they lose the game with less points than the spread.

How do you play the point spread?

Simply click on your preferred point spread bet and play it like you would play any other wager. Remember to adjust how much money you’d like to stake, and to never stake more than you can afford.

How do you bet without losing?

Losing is simply a natural part of sports betting. In fact, you should learn to accept the inevitability that your wagers will lose. It’s simply part of the game.

Do you get your bet back when you win?

Yes, you do. The payout of a wager will include your own original stake as well as the associated profit of the wager. To figure the payout of a wager, please refer to our odds section further up in this page.

How can I gamble online safely?

By playing at Betiton™! Our platform at Betiton™ is 100% encrypted thanks to the 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology we’ve employed to protect our site.

Can you lose more than you bet?
