  4. 4. Understand Betting Odds• To start with, betting odds are probably the most important part of the betting game.• Odds can be decimal (ie. $1.20) or fractional (ie. 10/2) depending on your country.• Each competitor in a market will be given odds that the bookmaker sets (show below).• Note. Odds will change depending on the level of money bet on a team and the bookmakers risk position.Example of odds displayed on below: © Agility Interactive 2011
  5. 5. Understand Betting Odds• Betting odds don’t just reflect what the potential likely outcome of a game, they reflect the way the bookmaker prices the event (which may not include a bias).• Take into account the key points below for a market with two competitors (ie. A Head to Head market) – Odds far apart (ie. <$1.50 vs $3+) – generally these games play out as expected, hence the low potential return on the favourite. – Odds close together (ie. $1.70 - $1.90 either way) – these games provide much better value and generally offer great value if you can pick a winner.• Keep your eye out for sources that provide betting tips like Favourit. © Agility Interactive 2011
