TS, you obviously havent bet before. 3.85/1 underdog means if you bet 100 and win you get 385, which is a $385 profit, not 285. You only pay the 100 if you lose.
dude trust me i have bet before, i have even stated so in aronymans bet thread where i lost 50 euros on a pick he made. not to mention i am a pro online poker player, however i rarely bet sports.
i think the confusion may have come because i put that slash in there. an earlier post in this thread said america and canadian/european use a different system. decimal and fraction.
if you look at the rich franklin fight, rich is 2.05 which means if you bet 100, you win 205 back. your bet account only goes up only 105 bucks. if you bet henderson at 1.73, if you bet 100, you win 173 back, hence 73 dollar profit.
i know its weird switching systems i sometimes get confused but im 99% sure this is the way it works for canadian/european decimal system.
edit: when i switch to american system tab. it says franklin +105, henderson -137.
edit: when i swith to fraciton tab franklin 21/20, henderson 8/11.
i dunno, decimal worsks best with my brain, its easy. you can easily visually see how much $ you make for a 1 dollar bet, 2.05$ for franklin, etc.
