Sorry Killer this is wrong. You always get your stake back when you win the bet. The odds are for the winnings.

1/1 means you put 1 on, you get 1 back plus your original bet.

Go to oddschecker and browse around, you'll see what I mean. Skybet actually have it as 10/11 which is even less than the odds here.
