MONEYLINE CONVERSION CHART

Say you're risking '100' at -135 on a favorite...How much do you expect to win?


Or, what percentage of all your -135 bets must you win to make a profit over the long term?

Or say you're getting +165 on an underdog...What percentage of your +165 bets must you win to make a profit over the long term?

When betting on favorites you can tell what you expect to win by simply dividing the size of your bet by the moneyline. For example, if you're risking $500 on a favorite at -1.50, just divide 500 by 1.50, (500 divided by 1.50 = 333.33). If you're risking $200 on a favorite at -1.35, divide 200 by 1.35, (200 divided by 1.35 = 148.15). 
Here's a handy chart that answers those questions and others concerning moneylines and winning percentages. (All figures are based on risking "100" per bet. Percentages are rou
nded to nearest whole number.)  

///

 


Many sports bettors avoid using moneylines against certain sports, such as basketball or football, because they are simply more familiar with and more comfortable using pointspreads. A point-spread can be regarded as a much simpler proposition. After all, if you're betting on the Buffalo Bills +3.5 points, you not only know what it takes to win the bet, (Buffalo can either win the game outright or lose the game by fewer than 3.5 points), you also 'automatically' know how much you're going to win. You simply risk 105 to win 100 with Buffalo +3.5 or you could lay the 3.5 points and risk 105 to win 100 on Buffalo's opponents. (Some sportbooks still use a 20-cent line wherein the bettor must risk 110 to win 100. Those sportbooks should be avoided, of course.)

Moneylines are not so simple as pointspreads. Many bettors are confused by the odds, but if you're not using moneylines on certain bets you are most likely costing yourself money.

For example, with Buffalo getting +3.5 points, they might be +150 on the moneyline. If you think the Bills should actually win the game outright, you should consider taking the +150 moneyline rather than laying the -105 pointspread line. If Buffalo goes on to win the game, a $100 bet on the pointspread wins only $95 while a $100 bet on the moneyline wins $150. Only two such moneyline victories wins more than three pointspread victories.

In the chart at right, notice that when risking $100 the difference between winning when laying -250 and when laying -300 is less than $7, ($40.00 v. $33.33), but the difference between winning when you're getting +250 or when you're getting +300 is, of course, $50. Laying -400 wins $25, laying -500 wins $20 - a $5 difference - but the difference between winning when you're getting +400 and when you're getting +500 is, of course, $100. 

Note that if you always risk the same amount ("flat" betting) when using moneylines, you're forcing the book-maker to risk wildly different amounts against you. It is common knowledge than bookmakers try to keep their risk relatively equal. That's because it's a good idea. That's what YOU want to do with YOUR risk. Keep your own risk relative equal, ("flat" betting"), while at the same time make the bookmaker's risk fly all over the place.
