Bet Odds Shortening Explained

Odds shortening refers to the chance of something happening becoming more likely. In betting terms, this means the reduction of odds, e.g: from 10/1 down to 5/1 or a similar reduction.

Odds are shortened for numerous reasons and are often at the discretion of the individual bookmaker. They could be shortened because of new information coming to light, making an outcome more likely, or when a lot of punters place bets, bookmakers may shorten the odds to ensure profitability.
