How the Moneyline Calculator works:

The math used in calculating the payout on a moneyline is pretty simple. It is one of the most important first steps to really understanding sports betting and is crucial to success. Below is a graph of profit won on $100 bets for negative odds. Note that is is a curve that approaches, but will never get to $0. Even -1,000,000 odds still yields some profit from a win:

And here is a graph of profit for positive numbers. The really important difference is that the line is linear. as the odds increase, so does the profit. That goes on forever.

Looking at the odds offered by the sportsbook, note whether they are negative odds (for example -110) or positive odds (for example +120). The calculation changes based on if it is a positive or negative odd. Below we work through an example of a bet of $100 at -110 moneyline odds. It is important to notice that multiplying by -1 is required to give us the positive payout:

PAYOUT = BET AMOUNT / (-1 *MONEYLINE ODDS / 100)

So that looks like:

$90.91 = $100 / (-1 * -110/100)

That also means that you will be returned that amount AND your original bet, meaning you now have $190.91. Lets work another negative example of $100 bet at -150:

$100 / (-1 * -150 / 100) = $66.67

Now lets work through a positive money example. Let’s say you bet $100 at +120

PAYOUT = BET AMOUNT * ODDS / 100

That looks like:

$120 = $100 * 120 / 100

In that case you are returned your original bet plus profit, so you now have $220.

For quick reference, here is a chart of odds and payouts on $100 bets.
