Most sports betting sites use American style betting odds and a lot of people seem to have troubles understanding how to read the betting odds and how exactly they work. In this video I do my best to quickly explain how American style betting odds work.

In the video I give an example using both negative odds (-110) and positive odds (+150) to show you the difference. The key is with the sign in front of the numbers. The negative sign shows you that the odds are showing you how much you need to risk in order to win 0, while the positive sign shows you how much you will win with a 0 wager.

    That was super informative. Thank you.

  21. Bhusan Shil

    Now I understand how the odds works

  22. Zach Tavaris

    Could have done better, what is obvious to you might not be the case for a beginner.

  23. Full Send

    wait so lets just say colts vs jets if i pick moneyline -500 colts but i bet my 1,000 and it said payout 1,190 so do i make that 1,190 profit or they basically said here goes your 1,000 back but here is 190 cuz you won this bet …. let me know asap if you can 🤝?

  24. DarkCode

    Doesn't it affect the winnings if they win by 20 points instead of 1 point? Or does it not matter???

  25. DarkCode

    So if it's +410 then I bet 100 and I win 410 – 100 so it's 310 profit or is it 410 plus my 100 back???

  26. Billy Rentacop

    I don't get why a simple well explained video has that many dislikes.

  27. x

    Not exactly what I need but it helped so thx

  28. August Kraus

    Your video sucks. Not only are you bored, but you don't explain where the (-120) is even placed or how that works. Fuck you.

  29. Joe Creighton

    The part I don’t understand is why would someone want to bet 120 just to get 100 back? What’s the point of that when you can still lose 20 dollars in the difference?

  30. Sunday Ske

    Great video! Appreciate the breakdown

  31. Vince Blas

    That's why betting can be addictive 😢
