To figure out what the odds tell you, you need to learn how to read betting odds. There are several types of Call of Duty betting odds, with Decimal odds and Fractional odds being the most common.
American odds are also used for Call of Duty betting, but it is rare to come across a platform that offers American odds. The method for reading each of these types of odds, or odd formats, is different from each other. Here are the most popular types of Call of Duty odds and how to read them.
Fractional odds use a fraction with two numbers, like 3/2 or 5/2. With odds of 3/2, if you bet $2 and win, you get $3 in return. In the same way, if you bet $100 and win, you get $150 in return. In both these cases, $1 and $50 is your reward for winning the bet. Since this is less than two times the return, this outcome has a higher chance of occurring.
Decimal odds are probably the easiest to understand. Decimal odds use a number with a decimal, like 5.0 or 3.1, which is the multiple for the return you get for winning. So, if you bet $100 and win a bet with odds of 3.1, you get $310 (3.1 x 100) in return. Since this is more than a two-times return, this outcome has fewer chances of occurring.
This type of odd format uses a number with either a positive or a negative sign. For example, -150 and +210. -150 tells you that you need to bet $150 to win $100, and +210 tells you that you will get $210 for betting $100.
