How Do NHL Odds Work?
Bookmakers use betting odds to indicate their view on the likelihood of a particular event or set of circumstances. In the United Kingdom and other areas of Europe, these odds are commonly expressed as a fraction (2/1) or a decimal (3.0).
When a number has a plus or minus sign in front of it, a moneyline or American method is a more usual alternative. Whether from horse racing and football, any event on which bookmakers take bets is provided with betting odds.
