These days we’re lucky. Really lucky. We are not bound or hemmed in by our locations or even the countries where we live. We can place bets around the world on a huge range of sports from horse racing, to different codes of football, basketball, hockey and many more.
Yet, the cultures of countries are different and sports aren’t all the same. In particular, the results and scoring is different. This means that bookies often use different methods to display odds. There are British style odds, decimal or European-style odds, percentage odds and American moneyline odds.
To be an international gambler you need to be able to understand these different odds. In the next few posts we’ll be exploring these and some techniques to convert from one to another.
