If you bet 200 points on a 1/2 odds in anything if you win, you get the money you bet back, PLUS money you bet X the odds. Therefore:

200 X .5 (1/2 odds) = 100
You win back the 200 + the 100 that you made from the odds.

Another Example if odds are 3/1

200 X 3 (3/1 odds) = 600
You get back your 200 you put down + the 600 you made from the odds.

The hard work of one, does more than the prayers of millions.
