Fractional & Decimal Odds

Think you know how this works?

11/2 = 5.5 RIGHT?

WRONG!

WHY?
Fractional ODDS DO NOT include the original stake in the return.
Decimal odds DO include the original stake in the return.

SO: 11/2 = 6.5 (add the original stake)

Got it? It’s stuff like 11/4 that gets me.. stupid, and designed to confuse punters..

** TIP
I suggest you pick one or the other and stick to it.
I ALWAYS use decimal odds – I never have have to convert, so I know exactly where I’m at.

Here’s an odds converter you can use.
