Decimal Odds

The Odds API returns odds data in decimal format. The payout of a bet is the decimal odd multiplied by your wager.

Example

Consider team A with decimal odds 1.4, and team B with decimal odds 3.9

If you wager $100 on team A and win, you’ll receive a payout of 100 x 1.4 = $140, and profit of 140 - 100 = $40.

If you wager $100 on team B and win, you’ll receive a payout of 100 x 3.9 = $390, and profit of 390 - 100 = $290.


Converting Decimal Odds To American Odds

To convert decimal odds to American odds, take the higher odd and apply this formula:

A = (D - 1) x 100

and take the lower odd and apply this formula:

A = 100 / (1 - D)

where D is the decimal odd and Ais the American odd.


Example

Consider team A with decimal odds 1.4, and team B with decimal odds 3.9

3.9 is the higher odd, so apply the first formula:

A = (3.9 - 1) x 100 = 290

1.4 is the lower odd, so apply the second formula:

A = 100 / (1 - 1.4) = -250
