Hong Kong Odds Review

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z OTHER

Betting odds are a numerical expression of an event happening, typically in a sporting event or horse race. The Hong Kong odds represent the likelihood of something happening and something not happening. The most basic betting market is for the toss of a coin in which both outcomes have an even chance of happening and not happening.

There are six different odds formats, which are mainly used in countries of their origin. The methods by which odds are expressed are as follows:

Hong Kong Odds show the winnings from a 1 unit bet, and the figure is always positive and 1.000 or bigger or smaller. These odds are the equivalent of odds against and odds-on in fractional odds. Even money is shown as 1.000 because a €/$/£100 bet returns €/$/£200 which is a profit of €/$/£100 plus the stake.

Odds Conversion

The art of bookmaking is to create a market that attracts business while having a built-in profit margin for the bookmaker. A market is said to be over round when the odds represent a book of over 100%. There is no direct calculation for the Hong Kong Odds odds profit margin in a three-way market. An odds conversion table shows the odds expressed in Hong Kong Odds and fractional formats.

 

Outcome 1 1.0000 1/1 100 divided by (1 + 1) / 1)) = 50.00
Outcome 2 2.0000 2/1 100 divided by (2 + 1) / 1)) = 33.00

TOTAL: 108.00

This book has an over round or theoretical profit margin of 8.00%.
