Work Out Your Decimal Odds Bets - From Doubles Through to Yankees and
Lucky 15,31,63 - Explanation of Calculating Decimal Odds Bets.
As someone who has bet fraction odds
betting for many years,decimal odds were a bit alien to me at first,but I am a
convert - they should be adopted for all formats of betting.
Well,I know punters who have bet for many,many years,who still
do not know the difference between,lets say,8/13 and 4/7,and therefore
which is the better odds.
Awkward fractions for people to grasp -
but look at those odds in decimal odds...
8/13 is 1.62 and 4/7 is
As you can see,1.62 is a higher figure than 1.57 - so,8/13
is slightly better odds than 4/7 - the higher the number the better the
Also,with fractional odds,there is nothing between those
prices - but decimal numbers between 1.57 and 1.62 can be used by
oddsmakers to tweak the prices and offer even more options.
Now,lets show you how to work out bets from doubles,through to Yankees
and Lucky 15's - and remember these instructions apply whether you are
betting in English Pounds,Dollars or Euros.
Calculate Decimal Doubles.
Lets use 2.75 and 3.50.
Just multiply them out ! - 2.75
x 3.5 = 9.62.
You win 9.62
pounds,euros or dollars.
Maybe you bet £5 - now just do 2.75
x 3.5 x 5 = £48.12.
If you bet just 25p just do this 2.75
x 3.5 x .25 = £2.41.
you do straight trebles or accumulators - same method as doubles.
Calculate Yankees at Decimal Odds.
This is actually simpler than fractional odds - very quick and
Lets use these odds ....2.84....3.27....1.95....2.65.
Again just multiply them out - but you need to adjust those prices
Just add one unit to the
So,these are the odds
for calculating a decimal odds Yankee....
Multiply them 3.84 x 4.27 x
2.95 x 3.65 = £176.55.
With a Yankee you have more work to do
(you don't need to do this for Lucky 15 bet) as you you do not have
singles in Yankee bet,and the above equation includes singles.
So,use that equation 3.84 x 4.27 x 2.95 x 3.65 and now deduct those
Important ! - you
must deduct the original odds now,not the enhanced odds used in the
So this is the way to calculate winnings....
3.84 x 4.27 x 2.95 x 3.65 - 2.84 - 3.27 - 1.95 - 2.65.
now almost finished,but you must deduct one unit to make bet accurate.
So,as above 3.84 x 4.27 x 2.95 x 3.65 - 2.84 - 3.27 - 1.95 - 2.65
- 1 =£164.84p.
did for singles,if you bet in any other amount than full Pound,Dollar or
Euro your final entry after the -1 is your stake unit.
above method for all bets that contain winning doubles,trebles and above
(I.E bets that do not contain singles).
Calculate Lucky 15,31 and 63 Bets.
This is even easier and quicker than Yankee calculations as you now have
singles in this bet.
We will use same prices a Yankee example -
are odds used in calculation.
So,simply multiply 3.84 x 4.27 x
2.95 x 3.65 - 1

deduct 1 for stake unit - and that is it for a Lucky 15 bet - takes
