We’ll begin with how to decipher match odds.
First and foremost, it’s important to understand how to read the given odds before placing a bet. Here is a brief example: Team A is favored to win against Team B at 5.5:1. If you’re confident that Team B will win, then your bet will yield $5.50 for every $1 that you bet. If you put $20 down on the match, then a victory will earn you $110. Pretty simple, isn’t it?

Additionally, there’s a simple procedure to use when calculating the oddsmaker’s chances of a given event occurring. Take the numbers from the above example again. Use the sum of the odds given for each team to divide the side you’re curious about. The result is the oddsmaker’s probability.
Here’s how that works. 5.5 + 1 = 6.5, and 1 / 6.5 = 15.4. The oddsmaker claims there’s a 15.4% chance of Team B winning against Team A. If (based on what you know about both teams) you believe Team B will win, then it’s about time to capitalize by placing a bet.
The last thing you’ll want to double-check is that another oddsmaker doesn’t have the same game at more profitable odds. Make sure to take the extra step; you’ll be glad you did. Show less.
