The fractional odds format arranges all odds in a ratio form, for instance, 2/5 implies that if you wager £5, you'll receive £2 in return.
The last format is the American style, where the baseline value is 0. If a value exceeds 0, it signifies that the odds are greater than evens, while a value below 0 indicates that the odds are less than evens.
Online Betting Markets
To view betting odds, first, our players must find the betting markets for their chosen event. We divide sports events into different markets, and then further divide them based on specific elements for the event.
For example, if you're looking to focus on goals scored, cards (also known as booking points, corners and more! In certain instances, you might encounter hundreds of wagering markets for a single game. While for some sports, you may find odds limited to 1-5 markets.
In our betting markets, odds are reduced or raised depending on their market popularity. For instance, if a large number of people are supporting Brazil to clinch a World Cup victory, the odds for this exact outcome will decrease in response to these increases.
In regards to individual markets for games, the most popular market is the Both Teams to Score market which is commonly found in football. If you're interested in tips for BTTS bets, check out our blog.

Will you be able to cash out your bet later? If so, have you downloaded the BetUK sports betting app to make this easier?

Sports Betting FAQs
How do sports betting odds work?
Betting odds demonstrate the probability of an event. If you view evens as 50%, under evens would represent an event that is likely to happen while over evens is what is unlikely to happen. These probabilities estimate the possible payout that bettors could earn if their wager turns out to be successful.
Odds can be shown in three different ways, American odds, fractional odds and decimal odds are the three formats, American odds will be shown as the likes of +370 or -125. This demonstrates how much players would receive per £1. So, if your bet has odds of +370, this shows that you'd receive £3.70 for every £1 you bet.
Meanwhile, if you place a bet at -125, you would get 75% of your stake as a profit, meaning £0.80 would come as the profit of a £1 bet.
Fractional odds are much easier to read for beginners and that's what we would recommend all our bettors use. They come in the form of 1/10 or 10/1. If your bet pays out at 1/10, you will receive a 10th of your stake as profit. Meanwhile, at 10/1, if you win a £1 bet, you will win £11, as you've won 10x your bet with your £1 stake as an addition.
Decimal odds, on the other hand, can be viewed at odds such as 1.32 or 8.00, if the odds are shown at 1.32, this will provide players with 32p profit from a £1 bet. Meanwhile, if you win a bet at odds of 8.00, this will provide £8 profit for every £1.
