What are American odds?

American odds reveal the amount you must wager or can win on any selection based on $100 increments.

  • If the odds offered on a particular selection are -110, that means in order to ‘win’ (profit) $100, you would need to wager $110.
  • If the odds are +110, it means that if you wagered $100, you would ‘win’ (profit) $110.

With American odds displayed, the wagered amount is added to the payout after the initial calculation.
