Friday, 9 December Tuesday, 28 February X Factor Final Betting Tips. In Australia , the practice is usually known as "SP betting". It is customary with fixed-odds gambling to know the odds at the time of the placement of the wager the "live price" , but the category also includes wagers whose price is determined only when the race or game starts the " starting prices ".
In the more usual case of an imbalanced book, the bookmaker may have to pay out more winnings than what is staked or may earn more than mathematically expected.
An imbalanced book may arise since there is no way for a bookmaker to know the true probabilities for the outcome of competitions left to human effort or to predict the bets that will be attracted from others by fixed odds compiled on the basis personal view and knowledge. With the advent of Internet and bet exchange betting, the possibility of fixed-odds arbitrage actions and Dutch books against bookmakers and exchanges has expanded significantly.
Betting exchanges in particular act like a stock exchange , allowing the odds to be set in the course of trading between individual bettors, usually leading to quoted odds that are reasonably close to the "true odds. In making a bet where the expected value is positive, one is said to be getting "the best of it".
However, if someone offered odds of 10 to 1 that a card chosen at random from a regular 52 card deck would be the ace of spades, one would be getting "the worst of it" because the chance is only 1 in 52 that the ace will be chosen. Player A wins if the dice add up to 12, of which there is only one possible case.
Player B wins if the dice fall in any other combination, of which there are 35 possibilities. When making a bet in which one must put more at risk than one can win, one is laying the odds or laying the bet ; rational bettors will do so only if the actual chances of an adverse outcome are low enough that the expected outcome even after deduction of taxes and any transaction costs is favorable to the person laying the bet.
The phrase "[I would bet] dollars to doughnuts [that a given event will or will not occur]," coined in an era when one dollar could purchase numerous doughnuts [ citation needed ] , thus indicates one's high subjective confidence, or at least one's desire to be perceived as having that confidence, in the outcome that one predicts.
It is possible to be getting "the best of it" or "the worst of it" during lay a bet; laying a bet does not necessarily mean getting "the worst of it".
Favoured by bookmakers in the United Kingdom and Ireland and common in horse racing , fractional odds quote the net total that will be paid out to the winning bettor relative to the stake. The term "fractional odds" is something of a misnomer, especially when visually reinforced by using a slash as opposed to, e. This fraction may be derived by subtracting 1 from the reciprocal of the chances of winning; for any odds longer than "even money," this fraction will be an improper one.
If the odds are 1: In either case, against or on , should he win, the bettor always receives his original stake back, so if the odds are 4: Not all fractional odds are traditionally read using the lowest common denominator.
