Match Odds Explained

Match odds are simply the fractional odds laid out by a bookmaker for the outcome of a match, with one team/player to win or for the math to be tied. These odds dictate the winnings of a bet based purely on the final outcome, without further bets or factors being involved.

These odds are determined through analysis of previous performance and estimated performance during the match in question. Due to how these odds are calculated, sporting upsets can be very lucrative for punters when match odds are in their favour. Conversely to this, sure fire results give very unfavourable odds and are generally avoided.
