American Odds are the default odds at These odds are based on winning \$100 for a given bet.

Betting a Favorite: The odds for favorites will have a minus (-) sign, and represent the money you need to risk to win \$100.

So if you're betting on the Packers at -140 against the Vikings, that means Green Bay is a slight favorite. You need to risk \$140 to win \$100 on the Packers. If they win, you profit \$100 and get your original \$140 back.

Betting an Underdog: The odds for underdogs will have a plus (+) sign in front, and represent the money you can win for every \$100 risked.

Basically, how do you multiply betting odds?

To work out your winnings, for positive odds multiply your wager by the odds then divide it by 100 and add your stake, so \$10 at +450 = (10 x 450 = 4500 ÷ 100 = 45 + 10 =) \$55. For negative odds, multiply your stake by 100 then divide by the price and add your stake, so \$10 at -250 = (10 x 100 = 1000 ÷ 250 = 4 + 10 =)

In overall, how do you convert betting odds? When the moneyline price is negative, take 100 and divide it by the moneyline amount (first removing the minus sign), and add 1. So for a -400 price it would be 100 ÷ 400 + 1 = 1.25. For conversion of fractional odds to decimal take the first figure and divide it by the second figure then add 1.00.
